Question about NetGear WNR854T Router (WNR854T100NAS)

1 Answer

Power light only, no network availability.

Ok, I know a lot of other people have been getting this problem and the suggested route is to go back to Netgear. But I not long ago bought this second hand for £80 and so the warrant will have run out and I have no intention of having to buy a new one. So someone out there must know what the specific problem is and how to physically repair it, what part needs replacing, etc.

The symptoms are, the power light comes on but that is it and no connectivity occurs.

Hope someone out there can help out

Cheers

Sean

    Thanks Dipu007 for the fast reply.

    I've noticed that you give the same advice to loads of others too but it doesn't work. There is a more serious problem with the hardware on these devices. I know you have to assume I'm an idiot but I am not - I'm a qualified service tech for loads of appliances so generally know what I'm doing.

    Just to reinforce what the problem is - It comes up with a power light but doesn't flash amber (to show it's doing the self test) and so goes no further. This is not a wireless problem either just in case you are tempted to say 'there are a lot of problems with it's wireless chips' - This is not the problem!! It's not even starting the self test so it is something more basic than that.

    Looking forward to more than a 2 line response!

    Cheers

Reset to defaults and start over.
It's possible your router is dead.

Disable network password

Try that and let me know what you got so that i might understand the root of the problem.

Swapping MacBook Screens


As long as the lcd cable connects to the new screen it should work just fine. Just power it on before putting all the screws back to make sure.

In regards to the wireless I don't understand the question completely. The 2006 will probably only have two wires...just make sure they go where the white and black ones did. You'll just lose a lot of the "N" network strength.

Hopefully that answers you questions. If not, let me know.

ok....
it seems that you are tring to connect to someone elses secured network which means you will not be able to connect to this wireless network as it has security enabled in it and the passphrase is know to the person who has setup this network....what i can suggest is that you can try connecting to unsecured networks if it is available...if there is no networks unsecured networks available then you will not be able to connect to the internet wirelessly..

This happened to me twice, and both times were after I had downloaded a long route. Both times, the only available fix was to do a "hard reboot" by selecting page-OK-power and then selecting "yes". That restored operation, but it also deleted the downloaded maps, routes, and waypoints, and forgot my preselected options.

(In MapSource, I had used the "Select maps around route" option, and both times the total memory associated with the selected maps was much less than 115MB - one was 59MB and the other was 63MB. And in three years this has never happened when fewer maps were loaded. My experiences therefore suggest that the actual working memory available for downloading is much less than 115MB - I don't yet know what the actual limit is.)
