What is the device type your attempting to connect to this wifi router? If by chance a laptop computer are you able to plug a Ethernet cable into the device and into port 1 on the router and access the default start up page. Most routers will use 192.168.1.1 as the default out of the box IP address. If so you can start the configuration of the wifi there and make sure the radio is enabled and set the SSID and passwords. Write them down. Some older laptops, and iPads for instance may not pick up 5ghz wireless signals so you need to enable 2.5 ghz.
First step is to make sure if the modem is functional. This can be done by connecting your computer to modem and check if you are able to log on to internet.
Second step is to connect the cable which previously connected to computer to Router's WAN port not LAN
Third step is to power cycle the modem and router that is power off and on both modem and router
Last step is connect router to your computer with new ethernet cable using one of the LAN ports of the router. There are usually three or four LAN ports on Router!
Good luck! Repost if you still need help!
The power light should stay solid as long as the router is plugged in. The WAN light and LAN lights are solid when you are connected, and the connection is idle. The lights blink when traffic is present. The lights are off when there is no connection.
Connect ethernet lan cable to computer and router end. In router there is LAN port connect lan cable to that port and connect other end of that cable to your computer ethenet lan card. Then connect phone line jack to router's ADSL Port. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
is your router powered? make sure your router is powered properly.
are you connecting your computer to the LAN ports? (the ones with a
number not the one that say WAN? connect your computer to one of the LAN
numbered ports and check to see if you get a green light on the front
pannel. if you don't have green light, try a different port until, if
you run out of ports and still no green light try a different cable.
have you by any chance disable your lan ports? I don't know if it is
possible on your router to disable some ports, if that's the case is
better to start fresh and simply reset your router by pressing a reset
button for a minute while your router is getting powered and retest to

if all this fails, it's very likely that your router has died. replaced
not sure why you will need USB drivers for your adsl2+ modem/ wireless router and 4 port LAN switch. It would help you had provided the model number.
The device uses a LAN ethernet port to connect to the computer. You will need atleast one computer to be on the LAN port for setting it up. Once setup is complete you can use wireless connection for every computer.
You need 1 more light, "Local Network". So you need to connect something, probably your computers LAN - Ethernet Port to one of the 4 ports that are together (LAN ports.)
If you are connecting USB, well that's always ugly, no cable support person will recommend that you connect a computer to a router via USB. But if you do, there's a driver software for that. Should be on a CD that you received in the package.
USB driver, no doubt, will create a virtual Network Adaptor. Then you'll get IP Automagically from this unit to your computer. The same thing should happen if you connected via LAN/Ethernet connection.
You normally don't have to set any settings, the default will be Automatic for IP Settings assignment. Which means you'll get it via DHCP protocol from this unit.
