Red Internet Light

My linksys WAG200G will often lose connection and display a red light instead of the usual green internet light. The problem can be temporarily fixed by reseting the router but it just happens again an hour later. Any ideas...?

While it is possible it could be the router, it may also be a bad ethernet cable/coax cable.

Is your router connected to a modem by ethernet? or directly to the wall outlet via ethernet or coax (pls specify which)

Sometimes it is simplest to replace that ethernet/coax that brings the internet to the router.

All lights on WAG200G is light up green, but when trying to go on internet, nothing happened. why?


Most probably you will need to upload the new firmware on your WAG200G as this issue is due to a corrupt firmware, reset the unit for 1 minute and then try to upload the latest firmware on the unit.

Linksys WAG200G doesn't have a green light with the internet.


Try unplugging the WAG200 ADSL Home Gateway, leave it off for a minute, then plug it back in. Sounds too simple, but it works more than half the time.

Internet cutting on and off


If you haven't done a firmware upgrade I think doing so will be of a benefit to your problem! Just remember to backup your router settings beforehand! Hope this helps!

Red led


When the internet light is red it means that the connection to the ISP failed.

To check the settings on your gateway, use your internet browser and type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar.

By default, the username and password is admin.

If you have a cable internet connection:
Under the setup page, select Obtain IP address automatically (DHCP) for the internet connection type (encapsulation). Save the settings. Then go the status tab and check if there is an WAN IP address. If none, power cycle the modem.

If you have DSL connection with PPPoE:
Under the setup page> Internet connection type (encapsulation) select RFC 2516 PPPoE.
Multiplexing should be VC.
Under PPPoE settings, you need to enter the username and password that your ISP gave you. Then save the settings. Go to the status tab,
click the connect button. You should be able to get online.

Good luck!

Internet Light Stays Red on WAG54GS Wireless Router


If your router's internet light is red it means to say that there's no connection. You really have to call Tesco.
