Question about Linksys (WRT54GC) Router

1 Answer

Linksys BEFSR41 V.2

I have a Linksys BEFSR41 V.2 router which is locked in the diag function with the LINK and DIAG LEDs on. A reset does nothing and none of the 4 ports are active. This condition started when COVAD did a diag of the system. I have replace the router but I would like to get this working as it has been a great router for about 8 years. It has worked FLAWLESSLY till this time and has the original firmware.

Any suggestions?

Hi,

The only way to revive the router is by doing a reset. If it still won't work I hate to be the to tell you this but the router is busted. Consider yourself lucky that it worked flawlessly for eight years. =)

I have RV082 Router , and Diag Led is constant what to do


Checking the Router's LEDs

The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router check the lights on the front panel of the router.

The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router, the following should be lit:
  • 1 - 8 (LAN)
  • DMZ/Internet (WAN2)
  • Internet (WAN1)
  • Diag
  • System
kb16591-001_en.jpg

Checking the Router's LEDs
Step 1:
Make sure the System LED is lit.

NOTE: If the Diag LED doesn't goes off, you need to upgrade the router's firmware. For instructions, click here .

Step 2:
Make sure the LAN 1-8 ports is lit depending on the computers connected to the designated Ethernet port.

NOTE: If the LAN 1-8 port is not lit, make sure that the computer is powered on. You can also try connecting the PC using another working cable.

Step 3:
Make sure the Internet (WAN1) and DMZ/Internet (WAN2) LED is lit.
NOTE: If the Internet or DMZ/Internet LED is not lit make sure the Broadband modem is powered on and that the modem is properly connected to the Ethernet port







You can access the web-based user interface utility of the RV082 by using one of two methods:

  • Through the RV082 IP address (192.168.1.1 by default), or
  • Through its default hostname ("RV082")

1. Open a web browser (Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator)

· By IP address: Type http://192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1 is the default IP address of the RV082)

and click Go or press the [Enter] key.

· By Hostname: Type http://RV082 and click Go or press the [Enter] key.

2. When the username and password prompt appears, type admin in both the username and password fields. (admin is both the default username and default password for the RV082).

sounds like a bad firmware updgrade,

roll back the firmware by redoing the upgrade with your backup that you made prior to the upgrade.

you made a backup right? they may provide older firmwares on the manfactures website linksys is usually good about this.

You said there is a diag light lit up on the router.
In that case you can try to reset the rotuer for 30seconds . unplug the power and plug it back in. wait for a minute.
Check the lights on the rotuer. If you still see the diag light then try to reset the rotuer again. If there is a diag light on the router then the rotuer is not working.
Try to reset the rotuer for 2 - 3 times . power cycle the router till you get no diag light.
Once the diag light is gone then reconfigure the router.
Connect the modem to WAN port and computer to one of the 4 ports. Do not conenct anything to the uplink port.
Reconfigure the router.
