Re: Green Power light flashing

Hi, Have you tried a hard reset? Your model has a small reset button at the rear between the Internet/WAN connection and one of the antennas (Press for 10 seconds +). Also flashing power led is an indicator of firmware problem which might have been caused by a failed firmware upgrade/update. Instruction on how to correct this problem is also included in the firmware upgrade/update. A more detailed instruction is in the User Manual. With regards to firmware update/upgrade , pls be reminded that firmware is very version specific. To locate the version number, you have to look underneath the unit and download the appropriate firmware from LinkSys website. ( The download is a zip file which you have to extract to a folder. The .bin file plus instructions as well as specific instructions on how to make the power led stop flashing. Hope this works out for you. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.

Re: Green Power light flashing

Solution 1: Reset router by pressing reset button using your finger or with a tip of a pen or paper clip for at least 30 seconds. This will reset your router to the default settings. Solution 2: Once you are able to log into the built-in Web server to IP address, change default settings for security and use encryption if possible. Once in the settings screen, look for the update firmware setting and upload the .bin file you downloaded from the router's manufacturer.

I have a D-link DGS-1005G. I have two computers connected and a printer. The D-Link is also connected via LAN. I can obtain internet connection to each computer with wireless and the printer will not...

Hi, you have to set up your printer as a device that can be communicated in your LAN by the two PCs.

To set up your printer properly in the LAN, you need to assign a fixed IP to this printer such that whenever it is switch on again, both PC still communicate to this printer without changing the new IP assigned to this printer.

You need to set up this fixed IP properly in your DLink router. For guidance please check this in your user manual of the Dlink. Please let me know any problem you may have again in future.

Need to rest speedstream6520 admin password

Hello mattsss,

1. Turn the modem on. Wait until the modem has stopped booting up and the power light goes solid green.
2. Insert a small tipped object (pen tip or a pin will do) into the hole at the bottom of the modem labelled 'reset'. You may need to hold this in for a couple of seconds before the reset is initiated. You will know when to let go of the reset hole when the power light starts blinking red/green. Remove the small tipped object. All the lights on the front on the modem should flash green and then red then the modem should start to boot as per normal.
3. Once the power light is on solid the modem should be restored to factory defaults.

The default admin username is "admin" and defult password is "admin"

My linksys network switch is not connecting network computer, what can i do to get it back to work?

Do you have any activity lights on the Linksys? If not your switch has no power a hardware problem. Try to power off for 5 seconds and restore power on the Linksys unit. Try to shut down (do not restart) all computers. Are all the activity lights off? If not again power off the Linksys for five seconds and restore power. Power on the computers and verify the activity lights are now green for each computer. If the computers are not networked and the activity lights are green, check your network settings on your computers, which could have incorrect TCP/IP settings or workgroup. If one activity light is not green for that Ethernet connection, check your cable connection or replace the Ethernet cable. The workgroup should all be the same name. The TCP/IP address should be the same with the exception of the last set of host digits which should be unique to each computer address.

Unable to get IP address

The D-link DSS switch should require nothing special to pass along IP addresses. You may want to power off your computer, switch and router, and then power up after 30 seconds. It could be that when you were testing, the computer pulled an IP address from the router and if you moved to the switch without renewing the IP, there was a conflict. Powering down and repowering should do the trick.

Linksys routetr problem

The problem can be caused, because of two reasons, one the router profile on the computer has got corrupted and second the router itself. Have you tried resetting the router to factory defaults.. Caution: all wireless security settings and user name and passwords would go back to factory defaults.

1.Disconnect all cable from the back of the router.
2. Shut down your computer and the DSL box
3.Press the reset button, using a paper clip at the back of the router.Keep it pressed for 5 seconds
4. Disconnect the power cord to the router
5. Switch on the Dsl box, wait for the lights to stablize
6. Reconnect the interenet cable and the power cable to the router and power it on.
7 Let the lights stabalise on the router and power on the computer.

Check if that resolves the problem, if not we might need to update the router.

Netgear gs605 Not Wroking

connect back the computer to the router and modem to router,
then try and ping your router from the pc . go start, run, cmd, enter
at the command line type ping if that is the gateway ip which is your router ip(what ever your router ip is it usally tells you in the manual).
ip you can't ping your router has lost its mind, try entering the setup
for your router by typing in the routers ip address in the browser, follow the setup according to manufacture, do a firmware upgrade while there, reboot the router, and that should work.

if you had power outages recently the router is probably fried so you can have it for breakfast. lol

let me know if this helps. smiles
