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

My Cisco e2100l wireless router sometimes refuses to accept new DHCP connections (wired or wireless) especially from mac products. Existing connections continue to work but the router doesn't respond when...


The stock firmware tends to be a little buggy. If power cycling works for you, then you should consider doing a routine power cycle every week. Alternatively you could consider installing custom firmware like DDWRT.

As for the DHCP problem try using static IPs instead.

I have a Belkin F5D7234-4 v3 wireless router. I was wondering, is there any way to either upgrade to a different firmware version such as the v4, or just a simple way to make it more a wifi receiver?


You cannot upgrade v3 to v4 or v5. Belkin routers are junk, because once they come out with a new version you will never see a fix for your router. You have to go buy a new router if you want better access to the routers settings. You are better off buying another brand like I did. Belkin blows.

D-link514 wont turn on after storm power outage


The cause is the power-supply "brick" to the DI-514.
It has failed.

So, it's time to buy a "surge-suppressor" (sometimes integrated into a high-end power-bar) and to buy a new router, for less than $80, in total, to be protected and be ready for the "next" storm.

Hi John
Can you actually connect to the router or is it the router not connecting to the internet? (2 completely different things)
The access code from the ISP may be the code to connect the router to the exchange.
When setting up routers it is often more straightforward if you connect the computer to the router with an ethernet cable. This removes one area where many people appear to get confused.
Once the connection is all configured, remove the ethernet cable and use the wireless connection.
The routine is usually as follows. Connect the router to the phone system using whatever is provided by the ISP. Connect the computer to one of the router's ethernet ports with an ethernet cable. Power up the router and wait.
The router then goes through a routine of its own which can take as long as 5 minutes sometimes. Once the router has synchronised to the exchange, (all the lights that come on have stopped flashing) you can then go through the set-up routine as detailed in the box with the router.
Some routers come pre-configured by the ISP and are ready to use as soon as they have synchronised. However, if you have bought a router from a computer shop it will not be configured and you have to do that yourself. It is normally nothing more than entering your network identity (as provided by the ISP) and the password they have also provided.
Once that is done and you have a solid connection to the internet (i.e. Google works) then check the wireless side.
Please note. No CDs have been used in any of the above operations.

I am running qwest DSL through a Linksys wrt160N that is brand new. it will work next to the router, but not upstairs or in the basement which is less than 15 meters. The upstairs bedroom is directly above...


If you have concrete floor slabs the the wireless signal from the Linksys will have a difficult time penetrating the floor slabs.
The wireless card in the computers will show a low signal strength.
Try altering the Linksys aerial to a horizontal position and also positioning the Linksys to another location.

You could be getting interference form other wireless sources, check the wireless channels of other wireless router/access points in your area. If they are broadcasting on the same channel then configure your Linksys to broadcast on an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength.
If none of these methods work then I would suggest you run network cables from the Linksys to upstairs and downstairs and not use the wireless connection.
If network cabling option is not an option then consider extending the wireless range with wireless repeater access points.

Wireless router


hello!

-- who is your internet service provider
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router

you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router

note:

configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work

if you are still having trouble configuring your device, try to call supportrix and use supportcall as your promo code for 1 free technical support.
