First thing to do here is to reset the router, To reset it press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds while power is ON then after that unplug the power for 10 seconds and then plug it back in hopefully you can now access the router setup page again, but if still the same router is already bad and needs replacement....

I have a WRT54G Linksys Wireless Router and can not VPN or Remote to a server from behind it

It is a passthrough router. you can not create a tunnel using this router. Now if you are using any VPN software to connect to the network then you can try to open the ports on the router.
Reduce the MTU to 1365.
open the ports - 500 , 443-447, 1723, 10000-2000
Try this.
If your router is old then upgrade the firmware of the router.

DI-524 status led not blinking

Here are the instructions

  1. Make sure that you have a copy of the latest firmware and it has an *.exe file with it. Because the router's configuration page won't be available, you'll be needing the exe to some sort of force the firmware upgrade procedure.
  2. Unplug everything attached to your router except the power cable and LAN cable connected to your pc.
  3. Configure your TCP/IP with this info: IP:, Default mask:, Default Gateway: and DNS Server: (Use only 1 DNS server). Save this new configuration and reboot your pc.
  4. Unplug the power cable to your router as the pc reboots. When everything is up and running, plug the power cable. The status led will be flashing like crazy. It's normal.
  5. Use the exe file to upgrade your firmware. Make sure that the utility file (exe file) is able to recognize your router or else you won't be able to do a firmware upgrade. Now this may take a while, keep pressing the Refresh button to recognize your router. Once recognized you would see there crash. Once you have this, you can now press the upgrade button.
  6. Wait for a while until the unit finishes the upgrade and once done, I think you have recovered the life of your router from the pits of hell. Hahahaha.
  7. You can now unplug the power of the router and restart your pc, see if everything is doing fine.
Hope this helps.

Cannot access the menu to 6218-A1-302 because of wrong update

Hi there, there are so many possibilities to your problem, however the first thing I would do is check underneath your router for the Ip address, if it is not there, then you can check your booklet that came with the router (assuming that you still have it of course)!!
Once you have this, you may then reconfigure / restore the router or alternatively (and firstly), I would check the network key and the type of encryption. The chances are that when you updated the firmware, that the key was also changed! Obviously make sure that the network key you are entering into your computer matches the one within the router for wireless applications, I hope this helps you, Chris
