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. Then funny and intermittent stuff can happen.

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

If your computer shows you the little yellow triangle (limited connectivity) then you might have to reset the source of your internet, the modem if you can access it, by unplugging the power for 30 seconds. then reset your router by unplugging the power for 30 seconds so it can aquire a new IP address if you get the internet through dynamic settings. The router could also have a bad ethernet internet port. If you can connect to the router wirelessly and tried resetting it and if you can get internet being directly hooked up to the modem or source of internet such as a wall outlet...then your router may be bad.....if it is a Belkin...then it was junk to begin with.

Hello nanpw,
To reset your router to factory, take a paper clip and press the reset button. Hold it for about 30 seconds or until the lights on the router flash. open a web browser and type 192.168.1.1 username is (blank) password is admin then run the wireless setup utility, after your laptop is connected its always a good idea to include security.

If the wireless light on the router is not coming ON that is a sign of something is wrong with the router settings or with the router itself.

First thing that you can do here to correct the problem is to do a reset on the router, To reset the router using a paper clip or pen press and hold the reset button of the router for 10 seconds while power is ON and then once done let go the reset button and unplug replug the power of the riuter then check now is the wireless light is back ON , if the light for wireless is back on you can now continue an reconfigure the router.

But after the reset and still nto able to bring the wireless light back ON your next step here is to do a firmware upgrade on the router. You can follow these step by step procedure from this link , just click HERE and then follow the steps to upgrade the firmware of the router.

My LinkSys Wireless-G SRX200 randomly reboot,


Check if directly connecting the computer to the modem works. If it does not try to reset the router and flashing the firmware. If you have a copy of the original firmware you may use that. If it does not work you may have a bad router.

I cannot connect to the internet with the wireless router


I had the same problem when I switched to comcast from sbc you need to power down your modem and either press the reset button or remove the backup battery if it has one for about 30 seconds. power down your router as well. Connect everything back the way you want it and your modem will lock onto your router. You see, once the modem locks on you cannot simply plug it in to another component without restting it to open roam. Hope this helps.

Try resetting the router . Press the reset button for 10 seconds and after 10 seconds unplug the power cable but continue pressing the reset button for another 30 seconds after 30 seconds plug in back the power cable and continue pressing the reset button for 10 seconds and release it after 10 seconds.

try to open an Internet browser and type in 192.168.0.1 on the address bar. It should give you the DLink page. Once you have that configure your connection.

If it's the password to login to the adminitration page(GUI) of the router your pertaining to, then the only way to solve it is to reset the router to factory settings(Press and Hold the reset button on the router for 30 seconds, release the reset button and wait for the power LED to go solid). Now if it's the WEP or WPA key or encrytion key for you wireless connection, Open the router's Admin page using another computer that is connected to the router or hardwire the same computer to any of the 4 Ethernet(LAN) port on the baack of the router. Open Internet Explorer and enter the router's IP address on the address bar(by default it's 192.168.1.1) then you'll get a pop up windows asking for the router's by default there is no username and the password is "admin".
