Lost power While updating firmware and now router does not work

I have a NetGear Wireless router, and was updating the firmware on it, but I lost power suddenly and since then the router has not worked. I have checked all the cable connection, and power is there, but the lights just keep blinking and no signal gets out. I tried unplugging it for 20 seconds, but that did nothing, I tried resetting it via the button on the back, but nothing is working. Does anyone know what the problem is?

If the firmware update was interrupted, the router may be "bricked", meaning it has corrupted files and will not be able to function as it should. You should call NetGear support and see what they suggest, since you probably won't have the tools necessary to restore the firmware.

Firmware upgrade


Why the need for firmware upgrade?

The power light is green, it is working, the problem lies with your internet connection.
1. Check the cabling.

3. Check with your ISP as to what the problem is.

Lost my password


  • Username = admin
  • Password = password
    • For older devices, password = 1234
If you have changed the default password and have forgotten it, you will need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings in order to use the default username and password.Please note: restoring a device to its factory default settings will erase any changes you have saved to the device.

If you have changed the default password and have forgotten the password, you may need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings.When a NETGEAR device resets, it goes back to the state when it was new - all information that was entered by hand is lost! Examples include critical things you need to get online, such as ISP username, ISP password, IP addresses, wireless security keys, and ports and services that were opened. It all needs to be re-entered.
So, have your ISP information before resetting the router.Naturally, if you moved to a new city, or if you bought a used router, the old information in the router may not be of use to you. Contact your ISP if you can't connect any computer directly to the Internet. Then, if there is a connection problem when the router is added, see No Internet Access Through the Router Reset for most routers with a reset button on the rear panelWrite down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Try these before resetting the router.)
  1. Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
  2. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password. If the router configuration was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.
For DGN2000 / DG834Gv5 Routers
To restore the factory default configuration settings when you do not know the login password or IP address, press both the Wireless button and WPS button on the side of the modem router for 5 seconds.
For FR314, FR318, and FV318
These routers require reloading the firmware in order to recover from a lost password. Download the most recent firmware from NETGEAR's Web site before proceeding. Follow the instructions in the manual.
For routers with a 9-pin manager port on the rear panel: RT314, RT311, RM356, RT328, RT338, RH340, and RH348

Wireless adaptor was working fine until xbox live update, and since the update is unable to pick up our wireless netowork. Tried switching everything back on and on and re synching modem with xbox, to no...


To connect your Xbox 360 gaming console to a NETGEAR router's wireless network:
  1. Turn off your Xbox 360 and disconnect anything from the I/O port on the back of the console.
  2. Insert your Xbox 360 wireless adapter to the I/O port as instructed by the wireless adapter manual.
  3. Connect the wireless adapter cable to your Xbox 360 I/O port.
  4. Flip up the network adapter's antenna.
  5. Turn on your Xbox 360.
    • If you are using an unencrypted wireless network, your Xbox should connect to it automatically and you do not need to proceed to Step 6.
    • If you are using an encrypted wireless network click the System tab, and then click Network Settings and continue with Step 6.
  6. On the Network Settings page, select Edit Settings.
  7. On the Edit Settings page, select your wireless settings on the Basic Settings tab.
  8. On the Select Wireless Network page, select your wireless network.
  9. On the WEP Network page, type your wireless network key, and then click Done.
  10. On the Apply Settings page, click Test Xbox Live.
  11. If this is the first time you have connected your Xbox 360 to Xbox Live, you will probably be prompted to apply an update. If there are no updates, the Xbox Live Connection page shows that you're connected to Xbox Live. Press the Y button on your controller to continue.

If testing the Xbox it says DNS failed, then update your NETGEAR router firmware:
  1. From your computer, open an Internet Browser and navigate to http://kb.netgear.com to download the firmware for your router.
  2. Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
  3. Click Router Upgrade on the top left pane under Maintenance, browse for the firmware downloaded and click Upload.
  4. Wait for the router to reboot.

Router not working, blinking wireless light, no internet light


Probably, this is because of Firmware Issue, There are firmware updates for most of netGear routers and they have to be done.

If you do these updates, you will have to write down all details of you networ/router manually and once the update is complete, you will be manually setting up the router,

IF you have the netgear support no. and your router is still in warranty, contact netgear and ask them help you do these updates..

It is possible that you need to update the firmware of your router. I got a message that indicated me to do that when I went in the configuration of the router.

Something else, are you using your laptop on the battery power, or is it plugged to the AC power?
