It the power light is blinking.. then it seems to be a problem with your thin i can suggest you is .. just unplug the power cable.. and wait for 20 sec and then reconnect it and check.. if still the same , look at the back of your would find a reset button.. press and hold the reset button for 60 sec witha pen or a paper clip with the power connected.. and then disconnect power and wait for 30 sec and reconnect again and then check if still the same ..the your router has gone bad.. better replace your router..if its still in warranty..

In order for the wireless computer to connect to the router wirelessly, the router and the computer's wireless settings should be the same. Before trying to connect your wireless adapter to a Linksys wireless router, please know the following: SSID or Network Name, Wireless Security and/or Network Key.

Connecting to Wireless Networks Using XP's Wireless Zero Configuration

To connect to the wireless network using Windows Vista, click here.

Follow these steps to connect to your wireless network using XP's Wireless Zero Configuration.

Step 1: Right-click the Wireless Network Connection icon at the bottom-right of the screen and select View Available Wireless Networks.

NOTE: If Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC) is disabled or other wireless network monitor is running, the Wireless Network Connection will not appear at the bottom-right corner. To enable WZC on the computer, contact Microsoft or consult the computer manufacturer.

Please follow the steps mentioned below on the Computer where the internet connection is working normally and check if the issue is resolved.

  • Please type "" into the address bar, then hit "Enter" or "Return."
  • Please Use "Admin" as the user name and leave the password blank when the login screen appears.
  • Please click on Wireless, enter the Wireless SSID name (name for the Network) and under Security, select the Security type and type the Security Key.
  • Save the settings and try to connect to Wireless on the Computer having the issue.
  • It will ask for the Security Key, enter the Security Key provided during the Wireless setup.
This should resolve the issue.
If the issue is not resolved, reset the Router to factory settings and then try connecting.
Please try to locate the Reset button near the Ethernet ports and press for 10 seconds.

Good Luck!!!!

Adding a computer to wireless at home

1) Go to the computer that is connected directly to the Linksys router.

2) Open up Internet Explorer (or your favorite browser).

3) In the address bar, where it says "http://www...." clear out everything in there and type in the following numbers:

Press "enter" on your keyboard. This will open up a dialog box asking for your username and password. Try leaving the username blank, and type in "admin" for the password.

Now you're in a web page that controls your router. Look for the Wireless section, and make sure wireless is enabled. Check for wireless security as well, because you may need to enter a long number in your computer once it finds the router.

If you still need more help, feel free to ask.

Connecting wireless router to laptop computer

Try changing the channel on the router. It would be better to isolate the problem first by trying to connect to other wireless networks on your laptop or having someone's laptop connect to your home wireless network.
