If you have internet connection and a solid security over the router I would't worry about it. In any case it does not hurt to read the manual and description to understand your product in detail: A perfect description is here:

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.

Modem light keeps blinking Have tried resetting. Restoring to default settings. If I hook the computer directly to the time warner modem I can acces the internet fine. Thanks


If the modem light keeps blinking, it means that the router hasn't been configured yet. Also, rarely, it can be an issue with WAN port/modem port on the router or the ethernet cable connecting the modem to router or finally, modem may not be working as its not applicable in this case(as you said).
How to configure the router for Time Warner?
1.Connect comp.--(gray port) router (yellow port)--modem
2.On the computer, open the router page by typing 192.168.2.1 in the address bar of browser
3.Under Internet Settings, change the connection type as Dynamic.
4.On the far left column, click on "MAC address" under Internet WAN.
5.Click on clone and apply changes and finally check Internet status
6.If internet status > Not connected, we need to do a network power cycle
7.For this, unplug the power from router, then from modem, then unplug the coaxial cable from cable modem.
8. Wait for 10 sec, then connect the coaxial cable, then connect power to modem, wait for lights on modem to get steady, then finally, plug in the power to router.
Now, you may see proper lights lit on the router.
All my best wishes for a fast internet service through the router.

For any advanced help, revert asap!
Thanks and regards,
Arvind

My linksys wrt160n wireless router light is blinking


Welcome to FixYa
Indication of Router Lights:
  • Power light blinks. If LAN or WAN cable is plugged in, their respective lights will flash on activity.
  • Power light turns off for several seconds.
  • All lights, except power light, turn on and then off.
  • Power light blinks slowly, then faster, and WLAN light will turn on.
  • Once Power light and WLAN light are on solid, the router is fully rebooted.

A working router should show solid green power light. upgrade the firmware of the router.

No lights on except power light.


The firmware has been messed up. DDWRT might be incompatible with your router. I would highly recommend to reload the factory firmware or the latest firmware from Netgear's website. Loading 3rd party firmware will void the warranty of your device.

Signal found, but no connectivity


Try this. It should renew your configuration between your router and your internet provider:

Step 1 Log into the web-based configuration by typing in the IP address of the router (default:192.168.0.1) in your web browser. The username is admin (all lowercase) and the password is blank (nothing).

Note: The 192.168.0.1 address is NOT on the internet. It is the address to the router itself.

Step 2 Click the Home tab and click the WAN button. Dynamic IP Address is the default value, however, if Dynamic IP Address is not selected as the WAN type, select Dynamic IP Address by clicking on the radio button. Click Clone Mac Address. Click on Apply and then Continue to save the changes.

Step 3 Click on Status. Under WAN, Click DHCP Renew. If it does not get an IP address or times out, then continue with Step 4.

Step 4 Power cycle the cable modem and router:

Turn the cable modem off (first)
Turn the router off
Leave them off for 2 minutes**
Turn the cable modem on (first)
Wait until you get a solid cable light on the cable modem
Turn the router on
Wait 30 seconds

** If you have a Motorola (Surf Board) modem, leave off for at least 5 minutes.

Step 5 Follow Step 1 again and log back into the web configuration. Click the Status tab and click the Device Info button. If you do not already have a public IP address under the WAN heading, click on the DHCP Renew and Continue buttons.
If you're still getting no connection to the internet, another alternative (before chucking the router) would be to reset it to factory defaults, and run through the setup process again, from scratch.

WAN light off on router


Hi Bootstrap,

Try a new cable. I know it sound strange, but I have had some work in one port, and not others.
If you still don't get a WAN link light, try resetting your router. We don't know what Netgear you have, but usually there is just a small hole where you press in with a paperclip, or pencil, and hold it in for 30 sec. Lights should flash when you release it. Connect your PC to one of the LAN ports, with the router powered up, and power up your PC. On your PC, go to STARTt>RUN>type in CMD. Press Enter. In the black bix that opens, type ICONIFG.
Look for your IP Address. It should be 192.168.x.xxx. (X can be any number up to 254.) Subnet should be 255.255.255.0. Gateway IP should be 192.168.x.1.
If your IP address is 169.xxx.xxx.xxx, you are not connecting to your router, or your router is not issuing an IP, thru DHCP.
Make sure your router basic settings is setup for your Internet connection type, i.e. DSL or cable. If all that fails, can you return the router? Is it new? What model Netgear is it? The WAN port not working does make me think it may have been damaged by a power spike. Have you had any lightning storms lately, or power outages?
Let us know if any of that helps. Or give us more info and we can see what else we can find.
