I was able to use my wireless this morning but now I am not able to. The status light is red and the WAN light is blinking green. I have tried to reset the router and disconnect it from the power source and internet cable, nothing has worked...any advice?

Re: status light is red
Based on your post/description, the Siemens AP/Router is at fault. This could have been brought about by lightning, power surge, plain hardware failure or system/software error.
The red status light - on indicates an error (on the firmware)(blinking during start-up or when firmware is being downloaded/updated);
WAN light blinking green - data transmission to/from your ISP (it is also possible that the router is trying to download corrective software or firmware update).
Suggest you let it run for sometime just in case it is really downloading/upgrading firmware.
If full reset of the router doesn't correct the problem, you may have to replace the unit.
Good luck and kind regards.

The power light should stay solid as long as the router is plugged in. The WAN light and LAN lights are solid when you are connected, and the connection is idle. The lights blink when traffic is present. The lights are off when there is no connection.
which lights keep blinking ?
I would do a factory reset - button on the back - hold for at least 10secs it should then reset back to the factory condition
connect the modem to the wan port
quite often the default settings may work with the modem.
post back a comment and detail the status of each light on the router
also the make and model of the modem and the status of each light on the modem
Verify the connections are correct, The WAN port should be connected to the Cable/DSL modem. Then do a hard reset (hold in the reset button for 30 secs). If this doesn't work, try another router to isolate the problem.
Sounds like you have a bad power supply. In my personal experiences with bad routers they either don't light up at all or all the lights blink. It doesn't take much to send one to the router graveyard. Power surges and lightning strikes are the most common culprits. Hope this helps
If that is status of the lights on your router there's a big possibility that its already bad and needs a replacement, but you can first try to reset it and check if that will correct the problem
, To reset the router just press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds while the power is ON then after that check if the lights are back to normal if still the same light router is already bad...
Buy the N router! That is the only solution. My signal weakened and went from the whole home to less than two feet if that at times. I bought the N router and it worked just like the G one did when I first bought it. Ya think somebodies got the limited life span worked out?
Hello, I was just wondering if you have tried to plug into your D-link with the cable? If so, does it work then, If so look into your routers wireless settings and make sure your wireless is turned on. Also try rebooting your operating system. I've noticed on my linksys that sometimes I have to reboot my notebooks operating system when It also does not show status light. I sure hope that help you. If not we can also look into it further with a little more information. Thanks Hope it helps
