Possibly the powersupply for the router is dead. Find another powersupply with same voltage output to try OR test the output tip with a meter. If the power supply does work then your router is dead. Replace it. If there is no power (5 volts or 12 volts etc) coming from the tip of the power supply adaptor then replace the adaptor / power supply.

SOURCE: D-Link DI-624 wireless router is not working after firmware upgrade try

Try to unplug the router and hold in reset button for 30 seconds see if that works, you probably did that already, But if you can get your computer to respond you should be able to open software Bios. and do your firmware update from there. If not I believe a hard reset is with the router plugged in and holding reset button for 30 seconds, I don't know I sure hope that resets it for you. Thanks take care

Hey Raj - Unplug your modem and router. After 60 seconds plug your modem back in. When the lights return to normal (except the activity light) , plug your router back in. Give it 10 seconds and try it. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If not, DO NOT RATE YET. Just add a comment letting me know what happened and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

If no power lights come on... it looks bad, but try another power adapter on the router before tossing it... could be that.

SOURCE: I have aa Arris modem connected to a lyksys

Try to power cycle your modem and the router for 2 minutes and If your Arris modem has a battery back up on it you must remove it in order to refresh the settings on it.
Keep in mind that after the cycle period you must turn On first the modem and make sure all lights of it are completely stable before powering up the router.

SOURCE: My D-Link Dir-615 router lost power when I pugged

if you mean you plugged the power chord of your modem, into your router, your router's toast. your modem had POE enabled for some reason, your router's toast. if you stuck your ethernet cable (cat-5) into your usb port on accident, your router's toast. if you read your manual and properly did a MASTER reset on your router then there's really no hope. there's not much hope to begin with routers are frale things. but in spirit of fixing the router assumeing it's a family herloom or something, you can bring it to an electronics repair shop they will then estimate the repair cost soldering wil be done if repars are made.......quite costly. unless you know how to solder in witch cae you'll konw what i mean when i sat the board's probably fried.

Please use the following steps:
1. Remove the router and connect it directly from the pc to the modem.
2. Power cycle: turn the modem off and then the computer for 30 seconds, then turn them both back on, modem first.
3. Check you internet connection to see if it working.
4. If it working, connect the router back up. If it not working contact your ISP for dsl support.
5. Once the router is connected, release/renew the ip address. Go to the dos command type ipconfig/release press enter. Then type ipconfig/renew. Check your ip address, you shouldn't get an ip address starting with 169. If you do, this mean you have a problem with the router getting an ip address.
6. Check you internet connection after the release/renew

Did you do a reset of the Modem ? If not, look at the rear panel, there is a little button. Press it for a few seconds, you should notice the LEDS on the from panel switch off or flash. Release the Reset button and wait for the LEDS to light up normally again.

You may need to call vizio to reactivate the modem, but it should correct your WiFi problem.

Let me know if this helped.

NOTE: It is advisable to connect the computer to one of the Ethernet (1, 2, 3 or 4) ports when setting up the router for the first time. If you have successfully configured the router using a wireless computer, unplug the Ethernet cable which connects the computer to the router for you to have wireless Internet connection. For instructions on how to connect the wireless computer to go online using the Linksys router, click here.

Step 3:
Make sure the power adapter is plugged in to an available power outlet.

I have RV082 Router , and Diag Led is constant what to do


Checking the Router's LEDs

The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router check the lights on the front panel of the router.

The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router, the following should be lit:
  • 1 - 8 (LAN)
  • DMZ/Internet (WAN2)
  • Internet (WAN1)
  • Diag
  • System

Checking the Router's LEDs
Step 1:
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 .

Step 2:
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.

Step 3:
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







You can access the web-based user interface utility of the RV082 by using one of two methods:

  • Through the RV082 IP address (192.168.1.1 by default), or
  • Through its default hostname ("RV082")

1. Open a web browser (Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator)

· By IP address: Type http://192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1 is the default IP address of the RV082)

and click Go or press the [Enter] key.

· By Hostname: Type http://RV082 and click Go or press the [Enter] key.

2. When the username and password prompt appears, type admin in both the username and password fields. (admin is both the default username and default password for the RV082).

Power led is on but other leds are off


How long have you been using this modem?

Have you tried restarting the modem?

Also try to put the power cable of the modem directly to the wall outlet
If the problem is still the same, then the problem is the modem itself, it needs to be replaced.

My 4100b is flashing ethernet green and power green that's all.


Hello I have the same modem and it had the same problem where it only lit the Power and the Ethernet LEDS. It is Quite easy to fix. All you have to do is Hard Reset it because soft resetting it wont do.
To hard reset it: 1. Hold the Reset button on the back of the modem for ~10 sec. until it resets itself. 2. >>Before all the LEDS disappear and only show power then Ethernet<< turn it off and unplug all the connections. Leave it unplugged for a few hours just to make sure that it goes back to Factory Default setting.
After that, plug everything in and turn it on.
Now, if it does not change and returns to normal. Press the Reset button while all the LEDS are lit then quickly unplug the 12vdc plug and wait.
If this fails, Search google for forums that mentions this similar modem ad same symptoms and see if they have a solution.
Hope it works, GOOD LUCK!!

Hello, Good question..Phone line to DSL modem, Ethernet cable to WAN port on Router. If connecting a PC wired to Router, connect Ethernet cable from 1 of 4 LAN ports on Back of router to ethernet port on PC. This would be Physical connection...
It's always smart to set a restore point in case something goes wrong during installation of any program. For wireless connection from laptop or PC: install router software on computer. Reboot computer. In browser address bar enter 192.168.1.1. This brings up a window for user name and password. Enter "admin" for both. This allows you to change many settings including Changing SSID(Router Name), User name and password. Enabling WEP or WPA security. Hope this Helps, Good Luck..!!
