Question about Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B Broadband Router (12503024)

Blinking power light - router not working properly

I've got a Linksys Wireless-B broadband router and it worked perfectly fine until a few days ago. Now the green power light keeps blinking, I've tried resetting using the button at the back of the router, and I've unplugged from the mains, and re-plugged many times - still no joy. Can anyone help...? Many thanks, Paul

Blinking power light on the Linksys routers indicate 2 things. 1st is firmware problem, 2nd is the worst one which is defective router. You can still revive it if you can reload the firmware. If not, it's a dead one and you need to purchase a new one. And man, your router is a very old one. You must switch to wireless G router, its 5 times faster than your wireless B and it only cost 30 or 40 bucks

1. the power supply to the unit has a malfunction.
the power light should be green to say that the unit is getting proper voltage if you see no light then the power supply is probably not working
If router is under warranty has manufacturer send a new one to you.
2. Try unplugging the router first for 30 second to a minute to see if your unit will restore if not a new unit is needed.

Try to do a complete power cycle on your devices. Turn off router, turn off modem, turn off computer. Wait for 30 seconds then turn on modem first, wait for all the lights to stop blinking then turn on router the reboot computer. Hope that helps
