Linksys wrt54gs, no WAN light or signal

I set this up at work, it worked fine for months, then today just stopped. I can't access the router with 192.168.anything, I've tried. I brought it home to see if maybe I could do it here. but no luck. Any suggestions? The Internet light works, and if connectted by cable to a computer, the respective light works, but the computer wont connect to the internet nor the router. I'm lost.

    The power light flashes all the time. I have reset the router, left it powered down all night. No change. Still can't connect to the router to set it up again.

Hi
This is a very known issue with this type of router all you need to do is to reset the entire router by pressing the reset button at the back of the router for 3 min.

Linksys router not recognize internet


Make sure your router's WAN port is set to dynamic IP. If the light on the front doesn't glow/blink for the WAN port, try a different cable. If a different cable doesn't work it's probably toast. :( This problem appears to be directly linked to the relationship between the WAN port and the modem. Given that the devices can connect to the router, but not internet, it has to be the WAN. Sometimes if the modem goes out it will send too much voltage through to the router and fry the WAN. Had that happen to my parents router. If the above doesn't "fix ya" then try a different router.

Worst case, you might have to put a wireless card in your PC and bridge the modem (wired connection) to the wireless card and broadcast for your wireless devices. At least until you get a new router.

I am getting a wireless signal from my router, but I cannot connect to the internet. How can I fix?


For that you need to configure your router with below method. Also change channel type to 3 or 6 or 11 then check. Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then configure wan settings and lan settings enable wireless if you want to use wifi Then save settings and restart router Then connect cable from internet service provider to WAN port of router and connect ethenet lan cable from computer to lan port of router. . Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router

So I really need help. I have a Linksys (WRT54GS) wireless router upstairs connected to the internet, printers, etc. and a Netgear (WGT624) downstairs connected to a desktop, xbox and laptop. I don't want...


More information is needed.
Is the 'WAN' port on the Netgear router connected to anything?
(cable-modem? DSL-modem?)

How many friends will come over at the same time?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Linksys? How many ports are "free" ?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Netgaear? How many ports are "free" ?
How many "spare" Ethernet cables do you have?

Is your goal to provide computer-to-computer connectivity,
or are you just trying to provide Internet access for everybody?

If you are "downstairs", is the wireless signal from the "upstairs" router strong-enough to provide wireless coverage "downstairs"?

Take your ethernet cable from the wan port and plug it into the lan port.

Linksys wrt54gs won't work


Your router might need a restart to begin communicating with the modem again. Remove power from the router, wait a few seconds, then turn the power back on.

Linksys WRT54GS not working


  1. First you may need to check if the WLAN or Wireless light on the router is on.
  2. Try connecting your ITouch to a different wireless network.
  3. If you can borrow a wireless ready laptop from a friend, then borrow one.
  4. Check if the laptop will be able to detect a wireless signal from router.
Please update me about this matter.
