Did you try a hard reset:
. This is done by simply holding down the reset button located on the back of the unit for at least 30 seconds. Once the router has been reset, it must be reconfigured. Using your web browser go to URL address http://192.168.1.1. You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password “admin”, in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to “admin” on some of the newer Linksys router models).

if the power led stays red, you need a new router.

Are the lights on the router stay on or blinking ?


The power light should stay solid as long as the router is plugged in. The WAN light and LAN lights are solid when you are connected, and the connection is idle. The lights blink when traffic is present. The lights are off when there is no connection.

I have RV082 Router , and Diag Led is constant what to do


Checking the Router's LEDs

The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router check the lights on the front panel of the router.

The Linksys router's front panel will indicate the status of the connection. After connecting the broadband modem to the WAN or Internet port, the computer to an available numbered port and powering on the router, the following should be lit:
  • 1 - 8 (LAN)
  • DMZ/Internet (WAN2)
  • Internet (WAN1)
  • Diag
  • System
kb16591-001_en.jpg

Checking the Router's LEDs
Step 1:
Make sure the System LED is lit.

NOTE: If the Diag LED doesn't goes off, you need to upgrade the router's firmware. For instructions, click here .

Step 2:
Make sure the LAN 1-8 ports is lit depending on the computers connected to the designated Ethernet port.

NOTE: If the LAN 1-8 port is not lit, make sure that the computer is powered on. You can also try connecting the PC using another working cable.

Step 3:
Make sure the Internet (WAN1) and DMZ/Internet (WAN2) LED is lit.
NOTE: If the Internet or DMZ/Internet LED is not lit make sure the Broadband modem is powered on and that the modem is properly connected to the Ethernet port







You can access the web-based user interface utility of the RV082 by using one of two methods:

  • Through the RV082 IP address (192.168.1.1 by default), or
  • Through its default hostname ("RV082")

1. Open a web browser (Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator)

· By IP address: Type http://192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1 is the default IP address of the RV082)

and click Go or press the [Enter] key.

· By Hostname: Type http://RV082 and click Go or press the [Enter] key.

2. When the username and password prompt appears, type admin in both the username and password fields. (admin is both the default username and default password for the RV082).

sounds like a bad firmware updgrade,

roll back the firmware by redoing the upgrade with your backup that you made prior to the upgrade.

you made a backup right? they may provide older firmwares on the manfactures website linksys is usually good about this.

You said there is a diag light lit up on the router.
In that case you can try to reset the rotuer for 30seconds . unplug the power and plug it back in. wait for a minute.
Check the lights on the rotuer. If you still see the diag light then try to reset the rotuer again. If there is a diag light on the router then the rotuer is not working.
Try to reset the rotuer for 2 - 3 times . power cycle the router till you get no diag light.
Once the diag light is gone then reconfigure the router.
Connect the modem to WAN port and computer to one of the 4 ports. Do not conenct anything to the uplink port.
Reconfigure the router.

Router not working and only the power light is on and the red diag light


Try umpluging the router for fifteen minutes. If that doesn't hit the reset button on the back, and reconfigure the router. If that doesn't do it sounds like your router might got toasted by a surge.

Network switch


Sounds like you know what you're doing... but.. based on what you've typed..

You need to make certain the comcast cable modem is plugged into the seperate port on the back of the router called WAN and not next to the other LAN connectors.

The network is seperate from the internet. The router acts as a firewall and shares the WAN with the LAN internally and automatically.

I assum that you have one red light on WAN.. and three green lights for LAN..

DGL-4300 resets every few seconds


Try the following:
1. Hook up your router like you want it to be
2. After the WAN/Wireless lights turn off we want to HARDRESET your router.
3. There will be a small hole that requires a pen or paper clip to press...Hold this down for about 15 seconds, or untill the power light flashes on your router.

This might take care of it.

let me know.
