Re: power problem

Hi, You would need a VOM (voltmeter) to check that the power adapter of your is giving out the necessary DC voltage to the router from the power plug. If yes and you have ruled out that it is not the power adapter nor the AC mains where it is plugged, try again but do a hard reset. If still a no go, it may be that your router developed a problem in its internal voltage regulation circuitry. Normally inside would be a fuse, a reverse protection diode and a 3 terminal voltage regulator whose output is 5VDC with some capacitors. You should check each that component is ok and proceed to check whatever you can inside the router. If 5VDC can be detected but there are no indicator lights, it may be that the chipset is fried. If this is the case, it may be to your advantage to replace the entire unit rather than do a component level repair. Pls be reminded of safety precautions when working with powered electronic devices. This type of problem is caused by a strong power surge or near lightning strike. If you are not comfortable opening the unit, perhaps you should seek the services of a qualified professional. Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Make sure all the wires are connected properly. 1.-Unplug your modem and router from the power supply. Wait 1 minute. 2.-Plug your modem back to the power and wait for all the lights to stop flashing. 3.-Plug your router back to the power and wait for the lights to stop flashing
Follow these steps and your internet should be working again!

What your experiencing is not uncommon. It happened to me several months ago. I had the same router and did everything you've done without any sucess. I then reinstalled the linksys software and that fixed everything.

Can you tell me if all of the four numbers should be lit up to reflect the Netgear WGR614 is working? My internet connection suddenly quit and I just noticed that on the number "1" is lit.

On a router, the numbers light up only if there is an active computer plugged in to that port. One computer plugged into port 1 the number 1 wil light, and same with 2, 3, 4. No device plugged in to port = no light. Different color lights with different data rates.

My Linksys Router has been working fine for 3 years. Suddenly, it stopped working and the Security LED is stuck at Orange and Internet LED doesn't light up. Is it a problem with the Line ?

Router can be misconfigured.
Try to reset to default.

Shutdown your computers.
On the back out the router there is a hole which you can insert a paperclip, toothpick etc, hold it for about 5 seconds then pull out the power plug.
After about 5 seconds plug it back in.
When the lights stabilize boot the computer.

Try to access to default ip: or

Can't use wireless all of a sudden. Have to plug

You can try first changing the wireless settings of your router like the SSID and channel and check if that will fix the problem, if there's no wireless computer working with this router better reset it by pressing the reset button for 10 seconds while power is ON and after that reconfigure it back..........

Router problems

Make sure you have the cable plugged to the right spot. Your modem to the Internet/WAN port and your computer to port 1, the 2nd pc to port 2. Try to reset the router. There's a reset button at the back of the router. Hold it down for 30 seconds. Then do a power cycle. Unplug the power from the back of the router and also unplug the power from the modem. Wait for 30 seconds. After that, Plug the power back to the modem first, wait for all the lights to be steady then plug the power back to the router. That should do it.

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.

Not working ,just red light

If you have all red lights, this indicates a problem with the router. Please contact your ISP to make sure that your internet connection is working correctly. Did you receive this router from your ISP or did you purchase it directly? Has it worked in the past and just suddenly stopped working? Please provide more details for me to provide you with further options.
