    Woah! That's crazy!



    Perhaps try a new cable? I can't imagine a short would do that, but maybe?



    Second to that, go to control panel, administrative tools, event viewer. See what the last few messages were and post them here perhaps? It might give a clue as to what is going on.

What is the meaning of red light indicate on internet led


That depends on your router...however, it's likely that you don't have an internet connection or there's a problem with it. I don't know your configuration, however, if you have a separate cable modem and wireless router (as I do), I would do the following:
1) Turn off all computer devices
2) Turn off (unplug) router AND cable modem
3) Turn on (plug in) the cable modem
4) Once the blinking lights stabilize (it may take a few minutes), turn on (plug in) the wireless
5) Once the router lights stabilize, turn on computer and try it again
6) If the internet light isn't working on the cable modem (or DSL, for that matter), contact your provider and have them check their side.

Check whether the main internet connection is attached properly to the router.by connecting the direct ethernet input cable to your laptop and testing whether internet is accessible to you. If it works then you can plug that cable to the master input of the router. It may be needed to setup the ethernet settigns again by logging into the router as admin user and validating connection.

Hope this helps.

The internet connection in my area went down yesterday, but i didn't know this and thought the reason i couldn't access internet was a problem with my linksys wrt54g router. So i unplugged and...


The first thing you should do is a proper 'powercycle' for all of your internet equipment.

To do this:

1) Unplug the power to your modem and your router, and power off your computer.
2) Wait a full minute.
3) Plug the power back in to JUST the modem.
4) Wait some more - for the modem to fully connect to your ISP, and the lights to indicate. If you're not sure, just wait about 2-3 minutes.
5) Plug the power back into the router.
6) Wait another minute or two for the router to finish connecting.
7) Then turn the computer back on.

You can bypass the computer turning on and off if you can repair your wireless connection.

If this doesn't work, there is a pinhole sized reset button on the router itself that you will need a toothpick or somesuch to press - press and hold the button for 5 seconds, and then try the steps above again. If you do this, the network id and password will be reset to the default, just like it was when you bought it.

I can not connect to the Internet. I have WiFi connection but can't do anything else


Plug your computer/laptop directly into router. Can you get to the Internet then?
If you CANNOT get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router, reboot your router. If it doesn't have a power switch, unplug it. Leave it unplugged. Next, you need to figure out if you have another modem for DSL or Cable. If you do have another DSL or Cable modem, unplug that device to. After 5 minutes has elapsed for both devices being unpowered, plug in the DSL or Cable modem to the power source. Keep the router unplugged from power. After your DSL or Cable modem has powered up for 5 minutes, plug your router into the power source. Wait a few minutes. Reboot your computer/laptop. Try the wireless connection again.
If you CAN get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router. Reboot your computer. Try to connect again. If you cannot connect after rebooting, make sure you are connecting to YOUR OWN wireless access point and not someone else's.
Do you have other computers/laptops/wifi devices that CAN/CANNOT connect to your wireless / access the Internet?

My dlink router dir-600 was purchased only last month. It was all working well until 3 days ago...the light in wireless icon and other LAN all stopped. Only power and Globe lights were Orange... no...


If you have ethernet cable, plug one end of cable into in available slot of router (LAN) and other end ont your laptop to see if you can get out Internet that way. If not, turn off you router, wait for a minute and turn it back on. If it works after the reboot, try wireless again to see if it works. Most of time, router just needs to be rebooted.
thanks

I can't get online to google or anything because the laptop will not come out of the offline.


If you are on a wireless network with a router, power cycle all your equipment to get it back in sync with each other.

1. Turn off the power to your router( 1st) , your modem (2nd) and pc (3rd). in this order. Wait a few min.

2. Take out the ethernet cable from the router (until your modem reacquires a signal to the internet) and if the pc is connected to the router unplug the Ethernet cable from the back of the pc.

3. Turn on the power to your router wait for all the lights to come back up. Then turn on your modem and wait for all the lights to come back up and reacquire a signal. Once all the lights are on the modem, plug the ethernet cable back into the Internet jack of your router.

4. Turn on your laptop. After Windows loads and you get to your desktop, plug the Ethernet cable in to the back of the pc( if you connect wired) or try to connect to your wireless network.

5. Then open your browser and type in this web address:

Make sure all the wires are connected properly. 1.-Unplug your modem and router from the power supply. Wait 1 minute. 2.-Plug your modem back to the power and wait for all the lights to stop flashing. 3.-Plug your router back to the power and wait for the lights to stop flashing
Follow these steps and your internet should be working again!

No internet on PC when cables going through router


Hello there,

You have to start from the beginning and my solution would be:

1) Remove any connections(also don't forget to turn of wifi on your laptop) to router and except the power cord. With the unit powered ON locate the reset pinhole on the back of router.

2) Press and hold reset button for at least 15 secs. then release, wait for 20-30 secs. before the router can completely rebooted.

3) Configure your Computer IP address to “Obtain an IP address automatically” .

4) Connect internet cable to router on port labeled "WAN". Connect PC to any LAN ports available.

5) Now lets configure wireless router. Open any browser you have (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc.). On the address bar type: "192.168.1.1" (without quotes). Default username: admin ; default password: admin click "OK".

6) Go through "SETUP WIZARD" until you reach the "Setup WAN Interface" page. On "WAN Access Type:" select "DHCP" then click next.

7) You may configure your "Basic Wireless Settings" to Public or Private until finished configuring.

8) On "Operation Mode" be sure you operate on "Gateway" mode.

That's it! Hope this helps.

There can be a few solutions to this.

First off, assuming you are using a standard cable/DSL home (dynamic) IP configuration for an internet connection, be sure to power off (unplug)your modem and router for at least 2 minutes, then plug them back in (if it is a cable modem, undo the cable connection as well), When you plug them back in, be sure to plug in the modem first, and wait until all lights stop blinking (maybe another 2 minutes) before you power on your router again.

Logon to the router status or basic setting page and make sure it is seeing DNS servers that are not part of your local network. And that it has an IP address.

Also, if your router is running a DHCP server, be sure the timeout is set for a nice long itme, say 7-8 days.

If it's still not working get back to me.

Connecting my dynamode 6004 W G1 wireless router to modem


Cable modems and routers must be turned on in a specific way. First, unplug both the router and modem. Next, plug the ethernet cable from the modem, into the cable router, and unplug the cable from the modem to the computer. Next, turn on the modem, and wait for all of the lights to stay static (usually there's 4 lights, the main one we're interested in, is the status light). Next, plug in and turn on your router. You should now be able to access the router and configure it for your internet connection.
