You need to folloow the steps below if Diag Led lights keeps on flashing overtime:

Click start then access control panel Go to Local area connection - properties - internet protocol/TCP-IP then use the IP Address: and Subnet Mask: after these download the most recent firmware version for your router that can be downloaded from your router's manufacturer website. Restart your devices after firmware version upgrade.

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.

Power light is on and doesnt blink, Link light is solid green and there's a red light on the "diag". when I try to plug a Lan cable into the router I get no up link. My friend ask me to take a look at the...

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.

The only way to revive the router is by doing a reset. If it still won't work I hate to be the to tell you this but the router is busted. Consider yourself lucky that it worked flawlessly for eight years. =)

Power and Diag lights blink.

When the diag and power light always blink it only means one thing there's a problem with the router, Try tor eset it by pressing the reset button for 30 seconds then after that tunr off the power for 5 seconds then trun it back on, of the diag and power light are still blinking the router is already bad and needs a replacemenet, If the router is still under warranty have it replace to Linksys this is the number 800-3267114.

Hope that helps.........

Yes there's a possibility that the router is dead already because that diag light will only be lit up when there's a hardware failure on it, you can try press resetting the router by holding the reset button for 30 seconds then power it off then power back on hopefully the diag light will be off, if still on you need to replace the router already...

Hope that helps.........
