Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router
On the back of the router there is a little hole with a button inside of it. It is a reset button. Hold it in for about 10 seconds, this should reset the router to factory defaults.You will have to re-input all of your settings but I think it should fix your problem. If you have a version 1, 2, 3, or 4 of that model, then you can turn it into a super router by installing a 3rd party firmware like from here - http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/index.php - if you areintersted, please leave a comment and I will tell you how to do that. Hope this helps you.

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 Shared Key, the Cisco
logo will stop flashing and stay white.
So this "feature" can be turned off (meaning the light is off)
On the web-based router setup (192.168.1.1 in web browser) go to Wireless > Advanced Wireless Settings
Secure Easy Setup
This feature allows you to enable or
disable the SecureEasySetup feature. Select Disable to
disable the feature and turn off the button's light. The
feature is enabled by default.
Click the Save Settings button to apply your changes, or
click the Cancel Changes button to cancel your changes.

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.
