Is the router settings menu 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 available from internet explorer? The factory user password should be admin. If you cannot get the router menu to come up the firmware may have been corrupted. Hopefully you can get to the menu or try and re-install the firmware.

My wrt54g router keeps on blinking it all started when i pressed on the cisco systems logo because the light was orange so i pressed it and it turned off and the power led started blinking and the wlan led...


The first step that we need to do here is to hard reset the router. At the back panel near the power, you can see the reset button... we need to press and hold it for about a minute..

(If the power light continuously blinking, we need to follow this step):
Step1: On the computer connected wired via the router, let's force card and set static IP on the computer.
(for windows XP)
> Go to control panel -- network connections -- right click local area connection and we can see properties. Click properties and let's go to configure. On that configure button, we now see advanced tab. Click advanced tab and choose link speed or duplex and value will be 10 MBPS half and click Ok.
> Right click again local area connection and click properties
> Highlight internet protocol tcp ip and go to properties. Once properties is open choose use the following IP address...
Please set IP to 192.168.1.5 / Subnet : 255.255.255.0 / Default gateway: 192.168.1.1
> After assigning the static IP please go to start - run - type cmd. On the blinking cursor type there ping(space)192.168.1.1 and press enter. If we are getting Request Timed Out, sad thing router is already defective. But if we are getting "Reply from...' then we need to update the firmware.


(After hard reset and router power light stays solid then we needs to reset up the router)

My router will not connect the power light keeps blinking


Check this tip out from Linksys. It is for a G VPN Router but you could use the same steps to troubleshoot. Title: Resolving Blinking Power or Diag LED on a Linksys Wireless-G VPN Router Article ID: 4982 If the Power LED on your Linksys router is blinking, this means the device is not ready. It should go off once the router completes its diagnostic test. If the Power LED won?t go off, it indicates that there?s a possible hardware problem with the router. To resolve this, you will need to perform five steps: Resetting the Router Assigning Static IP to the Computer Pinging the Router Accessing the Router?s Web-based Setup Page Updating the Router?s Firmware For instructions on how to reset the router, follow the steps below. Resetting the Router Hold in the RESET button at the back of the router for 30 seconds. Unplug the power to the router then plug it back in. If after resetting the router and the Power LED is still blinking, try resetting the router again for another 30 seconds. Then proceed with assigning a static IP address on the PC. For instructions, follow the steps below. Assigning a Static IP Address on Your Computer Most of the time, if the power LED on the router is blinking it loses its ability to assign IP addresses to the PCs connected to it, which is why you need to assign the computer a static IP address. After assigning a static IP address on the computer, check if the computer is still communicating to the router by performing a ping test. To ping the router, follow the steps below. Pinging the Router Ping test helps trace the communication between the computer and the router. The computer sends packets to the router and in return the router sends out replies to validate the connection. In this example, our router IP address is 192.168.1.1. NOTE: If you?re using Windows 98 or ME, click here. Windows 2000/XP Step 1: Click Start, then Run. Step 2: When the Run window opens, type ?cmd? in the Open field, then click OK. Step 3: When the MS DOS Prompt appears, type ?ping 192.168.1.1? and press [Enter]. Step 4: Check the ping statistics. You should get Packets: Sent =4, Received =4, Lost = 0 (0% loss). NOTE: If you?re not getting good replies from the router, it means the router is not communicating properly with the computer anymore. You can already consider the device defective. Windows 98/ME Step 1: Click Start, then Run. A window similar to Step 2 will appear. Step 2: When the Run window appears, type ?command? in the Open field, then click OK. Step 3: When the MS DOS Prompt appears, type ?ping 192.168.1.1? and press [Enter]. Step 4: Check the ping statistics. You should get Packets: Sent =4, Received =4, Lost = 0 (0% loss). NOTE: If you?re not getting good replies from the router, it means the router is not communicating properly with the computer anymore. You can already consider the device defective. If you get good responses from the router, access the router?s web-based setup page to see if a firmware update is possible. For instructions, follow the steps below. Accessing the Router?s Web-based Setup Page In order to perform a firmware update, you should be able to access the router?s web-based setup page. Updating the firmware is one way of resolving the blinking power light on the Linksys router. To access the router?s web-based setup page, click here. NOTE: If you?re having difficulties accessing the router?s web-based setup page, the router is considered defective. If you?re able to access the router?s web-based setup page, proceed in updating the firmware upgrade.

I have a WRTU54G-TM router that after saving settings changes now blinks the power light endlessly. Depressing and holding the reset for over 30 seconds has no effect, power light continues to blink...


Probably can't be saved. The only thing you could is update the firmware since it looks like you can get to the web interface. Pressing the "update" button when updating is different than hitting the "save" link when changing settings. If there is no newer firmware available, you should be able to downgrade it to an older version.

My LED on the BEFSR41 is blinking, and I can't get past pinging


  1. First you need to do a hard reset on your router. While the router is on, press and hold the reset on the router for about 20 seconds. Then, disconnect power from the router but keep holding the reset. Wait for about 15 seconds and then power on the router. Wait for another 15 seconds and then release the reset. You may need to stick a pen or a paper clip to push the reset button.
  2. Turn off the router for about 30 seconds and then turn it on agan. Check if your power light is still blinking.
  3. To assign a static IP address to your computer(in winXP); open Control Panel and click Network Connections then look for Local Area Connection.
  4. Right click on Local Area connection and then click properties. Then you will find a list of items used by that connection. Select Internet Protocol/TCP/IP then click Properties.
  5. Set IP address to Use the Following IP Address.
  6. The IP address you will configure to it is 192.168.1.2. The Subnet mask is 255.255.255.0. The Default Gateway is 192.168.1.1. Just leave the DNS server addresses blank.
  7. Click okay all the way out. Then try to ping 192.168.1.1.
  8. If you're able to get reply, then you may proceed in upgrading the router's firmware.
  9. Make sure also that firewall is off in your computer.
Hope this helps!

Something internally died. if you are willing to start replacing chips inside the thing. let me know the part numbers from the chips.

Power indicator keep on blinking


hello!

blinking power light after firmware upgrade sometimes indicates that the upgrade is not sucessful or the firmware that you load is incorrect.

-- try to reset the router for 30secs and check if the power light is still blinking
-- if its still blinking check your pc's ip address while connected to the router
-- if the ip address of your pc is invalid (169.x.x.x.) turn to manually assign static ip address to your computer and check if you can ping your routers ip address
-- if you can ping the routers ip address, upload the correct firmware to your router
-- if you cant ping your routers ip address still, reset the router again and try to ping the routers ip address once again
-- try to change port and cables
-- if still unable to ping the routers ip address, chances are that the router might be defective now
