Question about Linksys A+G WRT55AG Wireless Router

Lights not lit on router??!! Brand new!

Hi...I just purchased a Linksys WRT55AG router, and i've gone through the whole set-up process, which seemed pretty basic, but nothing is happening. Nothing is lit on the router, not the power light...nothing. I thought that the problem might be in the power cord or outlet, but i tested both and both are working properly. Is this a faulty router?? I'm so frustrated!

    i have set up wireless before with no problem, and this was a pretty basic set-up. i double checked everything, and still no luck. guess i'm just gonna return it. i'm just questioning if i should return it for another linksys, or get a different brand.

    actually, that is me in the picture, but i didn't mean to post it. apparently i had right-clicked and copied it from something and accidentally put it up....yes, i'm a moron! OH! i know what i was doing...i was trying to get the pic in the little box like yours is beside your name. i couldn't see mine, but i'm thinking that maybe it only shows on the replies, not the questions?? Anyways...sorry again! I did get my new router in though. yay! this one actually works!

Most probably a faulty router. I recommend DLink as we have had about a 50% failure rate with Linksys in the past 6 months.

As long as you have connected your powered up modem to the rear port of the router and set it up firstly through the RJ45 cable and it is plugged in, then the power light should be on, if no power light then nothing is going to set up, so as long as you know you have followed the instructions, it must be a faulty unit, but go through everything again, as you may have missed something; as we all do at times.

    personally, netgear or belkin are the easiest to set up in my opinion

My linksys a + g wrt55ag wireless router is having problems : It keeps restarting on its own every few seconds. ( lights go on then after like 2-3 sec it restarts and does it all over. I tried reseting it...


Try to upgrade the firmware of the router.
Is there any computer connected to the router with the cable.
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
Download the firmware of the router from the manufacturer's website.
enter the model number. select proper version number and download the firmware of the router.
Once you download the firmware, you will need to open the router set up and upgrade the firmware of the router.
After upgrading the firmware, it is recommended that you reset and reconfigure the router.

Installing a linksys router with a u-verse RG.


Hi sgolob48,

First, make sure that the wireless network capability ofthe U-Verse RG is diabled (since you're using the Linksys for that purpose).

Second, make sure the ethernet cabel from the back of the RG connects to an LAN port on the Linksys (NOT the Linksys's WAN port).

Finally,disable the DHCP feature on the Linksys (since DHCP should be active on the U-VerseRG). Here's how:
1) Install the Linksys software on your computer and open your internet browser.
2) Type the URL 192.168.1.1 (default for Linksys access ponts).
3) You'll be asked to enter a username and password. The default is username "admin" and password either "admin" or [blank].
4) Once you've logged in, scroll down on the basic settings page (the one that loads automatically) to where it says Network Address Server Settings (DHCP). Click the radio button next to Disable, then click Save Settings at the bottom.

What you've basically done is make the Linksys another computer in your network, and the one that others will connect to the RG through.

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind regards,
H2H

Wireless router install on cable modem w/static ip address set


Connect a computer to linksys lan port 1-4, point browser to linksys http://192.168.1.1 under Setup->Basic Setup->Internet Settings choose "Static IP" and fill in the fields below... the field for gateway should be set to the static ip of your cable modem. the field for netmask should probably be 255.255.255.0. It may help to turn on DHCP for local network so that lan hosts can get their ip's from the linksys.
