Question about Linksys : WRT54GS Wireless-G Router W/ SpeedBooster (NELIWP17)
Power light lit, WLAN light-is lit, but blinks. DMZ light-not lit. Internet light-is lit but blinks. Ethernet 1-4 lights- not lit. Nothing has been touched and it has been working fine for over a year, all of a sudden my network is not available. I am able to connect on neighboring networks with 2 laptops with no problem, my network does not show as "available". I am not computer savvy, anyone have any easy recommendations? There are frequent power failures where I live and this seems to have stopped working after a power failure several weeks ago. Thanks.
Try holding down the reset button which should be behind or under the router for 30 seconds, still holding down the reset button turn the power off for 30 seconds, still hoding the reset button wait more 30 seconds. After that your router should be in the way it came.

SecureEasySetup (Orange/White) The Cisco logo is the Router's SecureEasySetup button. It
lights up and will stay orange when the Router is powered on. The color orange indicates that
the Router is not using the SecureEasySetup feature, while the color white indicates that the
Router is using the SecureEasySetup feature. When the Router enters SecureEasySetup
mode, the Cisco logo will turn white and start flashing. After the Router has generated
the SSID and WPA Personal key, the Cisco logo will stop flashing and stay white.
To clear the SSID and WPA Personal key, press and hold down the Cisco logo for five seconds.
The Cisco logo will flash slowly as the Router resets itself. The Cisco logo will turn orange to
indicate a successful reset.NOTE: SecureEasySetup is a feature that makes
it easy to set up your wireless network. If you have SecureEasySetup devices, run the Router's
Setup Wizard CD-ROM and follow the onscreen instructions to use SecureEasySetup.
Power (Green) The Power LED lights up and will stay on while the Router is powered
on. When the Router goes through its selfdiagnostic mode during every boot-up, this
LED will flash. When the diagnostic is complete, the LED will be solidly lit.
DMZ (Green) The DMZ LED indicates when the DMZ function is being used. This LED will
remain lit as long as DMZ is enabled. WLAN (Green) The WLAN LED lights up when
the wireless feature is enabled. If the LED is flashing, the Router is actively sending or
receiving data over the network. 1, 2, 3, 4 (Green) These numbered LEDs, corresponding with the numbered ports on the Router's back panel, serve two purposes. If the LED is continuously lit, the Router is successfully connected to a device through that port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over that port.
Internet (Green) The Internet LED lights up when there is a connection made through the
Internet port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over the Internet port.

Checking the Router's LEDs
Make sure the System LED is lit.
NOTE: If the Diag LED doesn't goes off, you need to upgrade the router's firmware. For instructions, click here .
Make sure the LAN 1-8 ports is lit depending on the computers connected to the designated Ethernet port.
NOTE: If the LAN 1-8 port is not lit, make sure that the computer is powered on. You can also try connecting the PC using another working cable.
Make sure the Internet (WAN1) and DMZ/Internet (WAN2) LED is lit.
NOTE: If the Internet or DMZ/Internet LED is not lit make sure the Broadband modem is powered on and that the modem is properly connected to the Ethernet port
