Will not power on

The lights are not turning on, is plugged in

  • Anonymous Feb 06, 2009

    My router was working ok, but I had some problems with my connection, so I decided to turn it off (unplugged the power plug on its back), wait some 10-15 seconds and turn it on again, but then it never went on. No led blinks, nothing.

    Some months ago happened the same thing, but that time I just left it plugged and it powered on after a couple minutes. Now, there have passed a lot of minutes and still nothing...  ;_;  What happened?!

If the power cord is correctly plugged into the router and you tried plugging it into defferent power outlets, the router may not be in working condition. you may need to purchase a new one.

If you are connecting the router to a cable DSL satellite modem, please follow the steps below:
1. Place the router in an open and central location. Do not plug the power adapter into the router.
2. Turn the power off on your modem. If there is no on/off switch, then unplug the modem's power adapter. Shut down your computer.3. Unplug the Ethernet cable (that connects your computer to your modem) from your computer and place it into the WAN port on the router.4. Plug an Ethernet cable into one of the four LAN ports on the router. Plug the other end into the Ethernet port on your computer.5. Turn on or plug in your modem. Wait for the modem to boot (about 30 seconds).6. Plug the power adapter to the router and connect to an outlet or power strip. Wait about 30 seconds for the router to boot.7. Turn on your computer.8. Verify the link lights on the router. The power light, WAN light, and the LAN light (the port that your computer is plugged into) should be lit. If not, make sure your computer, modem, and router are powered on and verify the cable connections are correct.9. Skip to page 16 to configure your router.Connect to Cable/DSL/Satellite Modem OR

I have the Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router and when i plug it into my modem, no lights come on, besides the power light which was already lit. I've tried resetting it (holding the reset button for 30...


There is another way to reset the router called hard reset..

you need to hold down the reset button for 45 seconds while its turned ON and don't let it go.
After first 15 seconds, take the power cable out but still keep holding down the reset.
After second 15 seconds, insert the power cable back in but still keep holding down reset.
After last 15 seconds, release reset and turn off the router for 30 seconds.

0-15 = Power ON, Reset button Pressed in
15-30= Power OFF, Reset still Pressed in
30-45= Power ON, Reset still Pressed in

If it still doesn't work then you got a bad router, can't be fixed. :-(

If you aren't seeing any lights on the router, it's probably just not getting power. Make sure you moved the router's AC adapter (it may have been forgotten in moving everything else), and that it's plugged in to a working outlet and the router. If you don't have an outlet strip where all the computer pieces are plugged in and the router adapter is plugged into a wall outlet, see if it's controlled by a switch. (If the room doesn't have a ceiling light, at least one outlet will have a switch controlling it so you can turn on a lamp. Otherwise you'd have to stumble around in the dark.)

If the adapter is plugged in to a known working outlet, then the router or adapter has chosen this moment to go bad. It's unlikely, but possible.

My linksys wrt160n wireless router light is blinking


Welcome to FixYa
Indication of Router Lights:
  • Power light blinks. If LAN or WAN cable is plugged in, their respective lights will flash on activity.
  • Power light turns off for several seconds.
  • All lights, except power light, turn on and then off.
  • Power light blinks slowly, then faster, and WLAN light will turn on.
  • Once Power light and WLAN light are on solid, the router is fully rebooted.

A working router should show solid green power light. upgrade the firmware of the router.

How to change password


1. Step 1
Position your Belkin wireless G router.

Place your wireless G router in a wide open and central location. Don't connect the power plug into the router, yet. Make sure your computer is turned off.

2. Step 2
Connect all the devices.

Find the Ethernet cable that connects your PC to the modem. Unplug the Ethernet cable from your PC and insert it into the wireless G router's WAN port. You should have an additional Ethernet cable that came with your router. Take this cable and plug one end into one of the LAN ports on the router. Then connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.

3. Step 3
Turn on your modem, router, and PC.

Plug the power plug adapter into the modem. Turn on the modem. It'll take approximately 30 seconds for the modem to boot up. Connect the power plug adapter to the router and the other end into a power strip or outlet. Like the modem, it'll take about 30 seconds for the router to boot. Turn on your PC.

4. Step 4
Verify lights are on for your devices.

Make sure the following lights are on for your router: power, WAN, and LAN light. If you don't see any of them lit, confirm these devices are turned on. Make sure the Ethernet cable connections are installed correctly.

5. Step 5
Install and configure software.

Use the setup wizard application to configure your Belkin wireless G router. Set up features, such as creating your password and setting up your time zone. Continue to follow the setup wizard so you can configure  other settings.

The d-link light does not turn on when power plug


Check the power adapter of the dir-615 for output supply. It might have short circuited due to voltage surge.

Power Light Is Red, Internet Light Is Green, Other Lights Off


Check cable connections.

Try unplugging router from power for five minutes.

If that does not work call Internet Service provider to check if there is a problem with their server.

Router is not working


What does this line mean? "It's reading all the other computers but isn't working."

Do you mean that the other computers are hard-wired to ports 1, 2, 3 & four on the back of the router? Or are you going totally wireless? Is your cable, or satellite modem plugged into the port labeled WAN?

1. Place the router in an open and central location. Do not plug the power adapter into the router.

2. Turn the power off on your modem. If there is no on/off switch, then unplug the modem’s power adapter. Shut down your computer.

3. Unplug the Ethernet cable from your modem and plug it into the WAN port on the router.

4. Plug an Ethernet cable into one of the four LAN ports on the router. Plug the other end into the Ethernet port on your computer.

5. Turn on or plug in your modem and wait for it to go through its boot cycle. It takes about 30 seconds. Watch the lights on the modem to tell when it has finished booting.

6. Plug the power adapter into your router. Again, wait about 30 seconds for the router to boot.

7. Turn on your computer.

8. Verify the link lights on the router. The power light, WAN light, and the LAN light for the port you plugged your computer into.

Now, open Internet Explorer (web browser) and in the Address line, type 192.168.0.1 and hit enter. You should see a login screen. Enter a user ID of admin and leave the password blank.

This should log you into the configuration utility for your router. You should see a Setup Wizard button that will walk you through setting up your router.

Power Light blinking, no reaction...help?


its possible that the router is not getting enough power, make sure that the power adapter that it's using the original power adapter that came with I think its 12v 1Am, you can plug it to a different power outlet, or better yet plug it back to where it was plugged in before. If the light will go solid again the it could be a problem with the power that it's gettign. If it will still flash then it's a fault with the router's firmware. click here to see how you can resolve it.
