if all the lights are on even after resetting the box then it seems the hardware has gone bad......before that let me suggest that you can go a hard reset......let the router be turned on and hold down the reset button for about 60 second then after that plug out the power and wait for 1 min even after that all the lights are no then u need to change the router.......

Ubee router

You may want to try resetting the modem and router. The only light that should be blinking should be the data light. A steady blinking link light typically indicates the router is attempting to establish a link. Modem may need a reset or potentially a problem on your ISP's side.

N300 router has a steady orange blinking light

The blinking orange power light suggests that there is a problem with your modem. The modem should be plugged into the top ethernet port of your router. Try turning off your modem for 10 seconds and then turning it back on.

Power Problem with 2Wire 2701HG-B

Sounds like a startup self test. All wireless devices go through a power on self test. Does it connect? You can connect to it and go online? I rarely turn mine off, only in a electrical storm.

2wire2701hg-b lights: power-on, ethernet-off, wireless-blink steady, dsl-on, internet-on, dsl line ok

If ethernet light is the only one that's not on, that means there is no device that is connected hardwired to the router.

My Linksys Wireless G Light is not on

Is the power light on the router blinking ?
If the power light is blinking and the WLAN light is not lit up then you will need to reset the router.
There is a small reset button on the back side of the router, where you connect the cables.
Press it and hold it down for 30 seconds. You will need a pen or paper clip.
Release the reset button and wait for 1 minute. Make sure that the power light willl be solid on the router.
Once the power is solid and steady, unplug the power cable of the router. wait for 5 seconds and plug it back in.
When you reset the router, it will come back to the factory default settings and you will need to set up the router again.

Zyxel wifi router not working

Try to hard reset the router and make sure that the LED light indicators are steady specially the power... if you have a blinking power light I believe it means that you have a faulty router... if it would stay steady try upgrading the firmware...

My P-660HW is not turning on...power light blinks and goes off...

My guess is that you have bricked your device. Could be that you did not let the device finish its factory reset after you pressed reset and before you powered it down.
I might consider holding the reset button while powering it up - and checking the brick's voltage to see if the failure was coincidental, (but that should be a red power light) and then calling zyxel.
The manual says that if the power led is not on, "The system is not ready or has malfunctioned." The manual says that you are supposed to press the reset button when the led is green and solid, not when it is blinking, and you are supposed to hold it until the power led starts blinking, which might take up to 10 seconds. This is odd - and I do not believe that the Centurylink installers, who press these reset buttons many times a day (since the guy I talked to reset all modems as a matter of course before using them) hold them that long. But that is what the manual says.

Hope that helps, and sorry for the bad news. Maybe zyxel can help, have you tried contacting them?
