Wireless light is dark - no connection

It seemed to work fine until about 2 weeks ago. At that point no amount of resetting or pulling the power plug and then re-connecting power would fix it. No light - no connection

Re: wireless light is dark - no connection

Sounds like your router has gone bad. Is it under warranty?

How to reset to factory defaults

If you've lost the address/password information for your WAP54g, or if you've bought a used one and need to reset the configuration, follow these steps:

Step 1: Connect the power to the WAP54G. The "Act" light on the front of the unit should be on.

Step 2: Connect a network cable (cat5, normal or crossover cable is fine) from the WAP54g to your computer.

Step 3: set your computer's network interface as follows:

  • Specify an IP address manually,
  • ip:
  • netmask: (for Linux)
  • netmask: (for Windows)
  • default gateway:

It doesn't matter what your DNS settings are for this exercise.
** BE SURE TO NOTE WHAT YOUR OLD SETTINGS WERE, so you can reset your computer when you're done!

Step 4: On the back of the WAP54g, locate the "reset" button. Use a paperclip or the tip of a pen to press and HOLD this button for 60 seconds. Yes, really, a full 60 seconds. If you release the button before that time, just hit the reset button again, and start the 60-second timer over again.

Step 5: After 60 seconds, release the "reset" button and unplug the power connection from the WAP54G, and wait 10 seconds, then plug the power back into the WAP54G. The "Act" light on the front should light up again.

Finally, on your computer -- point a web browser at
It should prompt for a username and password.
  • For Internet Explorer, leave the username blank and put admin in the password
  • For Firefox and Safari, put admin in the username and admin in the password

And there you have it!

How to reset password to access AP Cisco configuration.

To reset the password if you have forgotten it, you must reset the whole thing to factory settings, which means you must reconfigure everything. This involves the mode button which is the little button to the right of the ethernet and cable lock slot, this will require a pencil/pen: 1. Disconnect the power to the access point 2.Plug the power cable back in and at the same time hold in the mode button 3.Hold the button for about 3 seconds until the light turns amber 4.Wait for it to reboot and you should be able to reconfigure like it was brand new

WRV54G Linksys router right out of box setup and for 5 min no prob then...hell broke loose neither computer had internet access(2 comps and an iTouch) connected via bypassing router and worked fine...

Do you have DSL or cable? Try resetting your router. Press the reset button on the back of the router and hold it it for about 5 seconds. When the router comes back up type in the router address: If your ISP is using cable, make sure that you have DHCP enabled. If DSL, you will have to put in your username and password given to you by your ISP and you will have to enable PPPOE on your router.

Computer cabled to Dynex enhanced G wireless will not connect

Unplug the router for ten seconds and plug it back in, it needs to reset. Some routers have a reset button. I often wait longer than ten seconds, I find a beer is usually the right amount of time. Sometimes the modem needs a reset also; unplug everything, then plug back in sequence, with the modem first, the wait, then the router, wait, then turn on your computer. That system works for any brand modem and router.

Netgear WG602 wireless router, Connection Local only !

What I think is you unplgged them at the wrong times.

Do this:
(in this order)
  1. Turn off the router.
  2. Turn off the modem.
  3. take out all the Ethernet cords from the router, EXCEPT the one coming from the modem
  4. Now turn the modem on.
  5. Wait for the lights, then wait about another minute for it to settle.
  6. Turn on the router, make sure the Internet,Lan,Wlan,etc lights are on and functional if it doesn't display a light let me know.
  7. Now depending on what your wireless network (SSID) is called try to connect to it. Go to Start>Network>Click Network And Sharing Center at the top>on the left select Manage Wireless Networks>now click add, if your network is already on the list shown select it and click remove otherwise click "Add" click "add network in reange of this computer" select your network name and click connect.
Now tell me the errors, like if it says connection limited,etc...
