Not having defined the problem very well it is hard to answer.
  1. Press the reset button on the back of the router for 10 seconds. This will reset to factory defaults.
  2. Check on the manufacturers website for a firmware update.
  3. Buy a new router.

Why is WLAN light is on steady not blinking, on linkys WRT54g router? I have no wi-fi connection


My first instinct is to do a hard reset of the device, if you haven't done this yet. To do this you need to press and hold the reset button on the back of your device for 10 seconds. This will completely reset your device back to factory. Of course, you will loose all security settings, and these will need to be re-entered into the router.

Connected to wifi but no internet connection


Wireless networks have become an increasingly popular way to access the Internet. Connecting to a wireless network allows you to browse the Internet without having to physically connect any cords to your computer.


Troubleshooting wireless connectivity can sometimes be confusing, because even if a wireless network is not able to bring you to any web pages, often your computer's wireless card will still connect to the wireless network that is being broadcast.


In other words, a wireless network will read "connected" even if it is not connected to the Internet.


Connect to a different wireless network. If there is an alternate wireless network within range of your computer that you legally are able to use (a free public Wi-Fi rather than your neighbor's wireless network, for instance), try connecting to it and browsing the Internet.


If the same issue occurs on the alternate wireless network, you may have an issue with your computer's wireless card or with your Internet browser.


If you are able to connect to the alternate network but still not able to connect to your own, the problem is most likely localized to the wireless network you use at home.


Reset all devices.

The great majority of Internet connection issues can be resolved by a simple reset of all the devices in your home network.


Locate the power cords of both your modem and your wireless router and unplug them (if you use a modem/router combination, simply unplug its power cord) for a full 30 seconds.


Plug them back in and restart your computer.

Try to connect to the Internet using your wireless network after your computer has booted back up.


If the connection still fails, some further troubleshooting is required.

Bypass your wireless router.


If your computer's wireless card is connecting to your wireless network of choice yet you are still not able to access any websites, there may be a connection issue on either your modem or router.


The easiest way to locate the problem is to temporarily eliminate the router from the network. Locate the Ethernet cable that connects your modem to your router and unplug it from the router.


Plug the cable directly into one of the Ethernet ports on your computer and reset the modem in the manner described above.


Now try your Internet connection again. If there is still no Internet access, the problem is most likely with your modem or your computer; contact the technical support department of your Internet service provider (ISP) for further assistance.


If the modem goes online directly connected, your router is causing the problem and may need to be reconfigured. Contact the router manufacturer for further assistance.


Hope this helps

Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can do so you can isolate whether the problem is with the router , the modem or your pc.
1. Disable / enable the wireless connectivity in your laptop.2. Restart the laptop. Then check if it is working. If not, go to the next step.
3. Restart your modem and router by unplugging the power cord on the back of the devices. Wait for the devices to load, then check if it is working. If not, proceed to the next step.
4. Try connecting your laptop to the modem directly by using an ethernet cable. If it did work, the problem is with the router. Its best to call the manufacturer of your wireless router if that's the case.
5. If step 5 still didnt work when you already connected your laptop directly to the modem, the problem is with the modem itself. Call your internet service provider and they'll do troubleshooting steps on their end too.
Hope this was helpful! Have a great day.

While it's true interference could be causing the issue, there are several other possibilities.

More than likely it's not your router that's losing connection, but your actual internet connection itself. If you're using a cable or DSL service for you internet connection they may be temporarily dropping the connection. It's common in large communities, apartment complexes, etc for connections to "blink" in response to increased bandwidth loads. It's also possible that if your connection is DSL based that your telephone line is connected to a bad circuit.

I would start by watching your Cable or DSL modem and see if you notice the Internet light change status while your watching a movie (when it drops connection). If you do you, should be able to call your provider to come out for a service call.

First, reset your router on the back by inserting a paperclip into the reset button. Then allow your router to reset. Also you may want to reset your modem to get it all on the same page. Next connect the modem and router. Go through the process of changing the network name again, but make sure you use a Wired computer to the router. If you use a wireless connection you will not maintain the connection when you make the change.

When the change has been made, reconnect all wireless devices. You may need to unplug both your modem and router after making the change to get them to communicate properly again.

The globe keeps flashing orange and I can't connect to the internet because of this


The blinking globe means that the router no longer has access to the Internet. The two most common causes are that:
  1. Your Internet connection is down, or more likely,
  2. You Internet provider has changed your IP address the the modem or router need to be reset to acquire the correct address.

Belkin has a decent site for general troubleshooting located here.
And a more general, but detailed troubleshooting guide can be found here.

WRT54GS DEVICE-NO INTERNET CONNECTIVITY


You didn't specify if you're using DSL or cable internet.

With DSL, keep in mind the software1.gif on the PC is what "dials out" to the ISP with your name / password, and you MUST set the name and password in the router. Otherwise, ONLY the computer that has the software installed (verizon, etc) will be able to connect.

Also, make sure that ONLY the LAN is connected from the router to the modem, and not both the USB and LAN.

If you're using a cable connection, you don't have to do this, however, most newer Linksys routers come with a 'setup' disk, which MUST be used regardless of connection type.

ROUTER CONNECTIVITY


Ok, do a troubleshooting session.
Unplug the router from the internet modem.
Try at first to connect using a Network cable from you PC to one of the LAN sockets.
Can you access http://192.168.1.1  with your web browser?  (the configuration page)
     If yes it is possible that the router has the same address as your adsl modem.
    change the router address to something 192.168.0.1 instead of 192.168.1.1
     Save your changes. Plug your WRT to the adsl modem and try again.

     Does the internet work now with a wired connection ?

If the above does not work can you "ping" the machine ?
      ping 192.168.1.1

if none of that works try doing a hard reset... heres a little guide (off the DD-WRT wiki)
