Router WRT54G no Power led on

Hi, my router suddenly stop working, I conected the Power supply this is the status of the lights: Power ON led is off, the DMZ led is off, WLAN is off and the internet led blinks sometimes during booting, the 4 Ethernet leds are solid on, the router seems to be turned off, but there is not response when reseting the router neither when pressing the Cisco Systems boton. If I run the dianostic from my laptop it says that there is nothing connected. I already proved the Power Supply line and the DC adaptator and it is ok, so it should be an internal problem any sugestion before to proceed opening the router? Thanks

I have the same problem, only difference is Internet LED is solid ON all the time. All these 5 LED's inmediately gets ON after connecting the Power supply (no really booting?).

Any solution so far??

Please make sure that Power, Internet and Wireless Light (or LAN light if trying to connect with Ethernet cable) is there on router if you are trying to connect it wireless .
And if only Power light is there only.Please try to power cycle the router ( turn off the router from power supply wait for a minute, plug the power supply back) and then again check the light status.
Even after this if same light status is there please try to reset the router ( there will be small pinhole button on the back side of router) just press it for 15 seconds and then release it.Wait for 2 mins and check the light status again.
It will fix your problem.

Please share the results.

Log in to the router and check that the WPA/PSK encryption ID or passphrase is still stored. If you have reset the router it may be that the encryption passphrase has been lost and will require to be re-entered. If you cannot remember it it may be possible to obtain it from the properties/settings dialog box on one of the wifi cards on your home computers.

I check all connection, all wires and internet connection and the port leds lights do not light on, why?


If when you plug in the power you get the Post light flashes and then no lights you may need to do a hard reset of the router.

If you get no Post light flashes when you plug in the power then your router power supply is most likely the culprit.

My wlan light keep going on and off on my wrt54g


Also check if the power light on your router is blinking. If it is blinking, that's an indication of hardware failure. To revive it, do a hard reset. Press and hold the power button of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power. Wait for 30 seconds again before you plug it back in.

Brand new router works sometimes


Hi,

the wall plug type power supply (made in China) may be likely bad.
This actually is a switch mode power supply very unlike the old and usual linear power supplies.
It is common the capacitors used in this supply are under rated and do not last very long.

The problem usually seen with dim LED lights on the unit, limited range and intermittent operation.

Try to find a replacement power supply with perhaps higher current rating.

Good luck
