Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Cannot connect in any way to router, all lights on.

As soon as I plug in the router, the power light is dimly lit, the DMZ light is unlit, the WLAN light is dimly lit, all 4 of the ethernet lights are fully lit, and the internet light is fully lit. I tried resetting the router by holding the button down for about 30 seconds, but nothing changed.

While the router has this display, it does not broadcast any wireless signal, and I cannot connect through any of the four ethernet ports.

Nothing I tried changes this status of the router.. if anyone has any ideas I'd really appreciate the help.

    Nothing loads when I try going to the configuration page. I just get a network timeout page from Firefox.

WHAT LIGHTS ON LINKSYS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE BLINKING


Note that incoming traffic will cause the WAN (or Internet) light to blink even if it is 'probe' traffic trying to break in to your network. Such traffic is to be expected and is the reason you have firewall functionality in your gateway router.

On the inside, there is a bit of traffic on any LAN when the computers are turned on. Messages generated by the router itself are used to find computers and printers for a lot of different legitimate reasons.

No wireless connection for laptop. Linksys router - model #wrt160n v2


you can run a direct line to that router and go to the cisco web site and get the information you need to run that router. its a pdf format and is 2.56 Meg. Try this

SecureEasySetup (Orange/White) The Cisco logo is the Router's SecureEasySetup button. It

lights up and will stay orange when the Router is powered on. The color orange indicates that

the Router is not using the SecureEasySetup feature, while the color white indicates that the

Router is using the SecureEasySetup feature. When the Router enters SecureEasySetup

mode, the Cisco logo will turn white and start flashing. After the Router has generated

the SSID and WPA Personal key, the Cisco logo will stop flashing and stay white.

To clear the SSID and WPA Personal key, press and hold down the Cisco logo for five seconds.

The Cisco logo will flash slowly as the Router resets itself. The Cisco logo will turn orange to

indicate a successful reset.NOTE: SecureEasySetup is a feature that makes

it easy to set up your wireless network. If you have SecureEasySetup devices, run the Router's

Setup Wizard CD-ROM and follow the onscreen instructions to use SecureEasySetup.

Power (Green) The Power LED lights up and will stay on while the Router is powered

on. When the Router goes through its selfdiagnostic mode during every boot-up, this

LED will flash. When the diagnostic is complete, the LED will be solidly lit.

DMZ (Green) The DMZ LED indicates when the DMZ function is being used. This LED will

remain lit as long as DMZ is enabled. WLAN (Green) The WLAN LED lights up when

the wireless feature is enabled. If the LED is flashing, the Router is actively sending or

receiving data over the network. 1, 2, 3, 4 (Green) These numbered LEDs, corresponding with the numbered ports on the Router's back panel, serve two purposes. If the LED is continuously lit, the Router is successfully connected to a device through that port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over that port.

Internet (Green) The Internet LED lights up when there is a connection made through the

Internet port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over the Internet port.

Good luck

Can you tell me if all of the four numbers should be lit up to reflect the Netgear WGR614 is working? My internet connection suddenly quit and I just noticed that on the number "1" is lit.


On a router, the numbers light up only if there is an active computer plugged in to that port. One computer plugged into port 1 the number 1 wil light, and same with 2, 3, 4. No device plugged in to port = no light. Different color lights with different data rates.

First reset your router settings to factory defaults.
You can reset your router with reset button it is in back side of router.
Press it for 10 seconds.
Then con nect your router to computer with ethernet cable.
Then you can access it with following link.

Hi
No problem if dmz is off ( only if you put one of your computer outside router firewall it will turn on though tghis is not recomended )
Wlan will be on only if you are connecting wirelessly .
Yes if power is not on spells trouble .
Go to your router support site update latest firmware it will end the problem .

Router not responding at all


Refer to the instruction booklet about how to re-initialize (re-set) the router. You will then have to re-enter all the setups.

If it does not re-initialize, then it is internaly defective.

Some light on; some not


disconnect power supply from the router, wait for 30 seconds , and reconnet it back then check you get the power light.. if not try in a different power outlet..check the physical connection, the modem should be connected to internet slot in the router ,so that you would find the internet light lit up.., if still you do ont see the power light or the wlan light, reset your router, if you look at the back of your router, you would find a reset button, press and hold the reset button , with a pen on paper clip for 30 seconds with the power cable connected and disconnectc power and reconnect and then check..if still not the problem is with your router
