Reset problem, router won't start again

So I reseted my router to factory settings and powered it back on. The green power light is blinking and router is doing system check. Port 1 light is also on. The green power light blinks for about 20 seconds, then all possible lights blink once and the router seems to reboot again. This continues on and on.

Any solutions or is my router permanently broken?

    Seems similar to my problem, I think it's a bug. If you unplug the phoneline does it continue rebooting? If so then it's the same bug. I found two solutions: 1) disabling Wireless, 2) downgrading to firmware v3.40 AGL3(C0).

    Hope this helps.

    I got the router working last nigt, took 4-5 reboots (pressing the button 20 seconds each time). Then it suddenly started to function properly. Works fine now.

If the powerlight flashes the entire time.. even after a hardreset, your router is probably only good for a brick....

My computer will not connect to my wndr3800 router but my computer will connect to my neighbors router


The first thing that you need to do is to reset the router. The reason why you need to reset the router because that will help you to fix the problem and to know the main problem/issue.

Steps

To perform a factory reset:
  1. On the back of your router, locate the Restore Factory Settings or Reset button.
  2. Using a paper clip or similar object, press and hold the Restore Factory Settings or Reset button for about seven seconds.
  3. Release the Restore Factory Settings or Reset button and wait for your router to reboot.
    After your router is finished with the factory reset, the Power light stops blinking and lights solid green.
    Note: The Power light on newer router models lights solid white.
    The factory default settings are restored.
  4. or you can visit youtube for the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nUOcjDy02ts.

Note: Once you reset the router it will be back to factory default settings and you need to setup the internet connection settings on to your router


Once your done with the hard reset try connect your computer and if your computer will have the same issue connecting to the router it only means that the problem is on your computer / try to connect other device first before you reset the router

Wireless LAN button won't switch off.


Most Netgear routers have a recessed button on the back or bottom panel, marked "Reset" or "Restore Factory Settings". Because the button is recessed, you will require a thin tool to press it. Most people use a straightened paperclip.
  1. Power up the router, and wait for it to complete booting up, typically about one minute.
  2. Press the Reset or Restore Factory Settings button until the test or power led starts blinking. This takes about 20 seconds. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password. If the reset was not successful, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the Reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.

I cannot connect to the internet using my netgear n150 wireless router. The internet light is orange but the modem is working fine and I can connect to the router itself.


When the router is turned on, the Internet light turns amber for about 20 seconds and then turns green. If the light does not turn green, the router has a problem. If the Internet light is still amber 1 minute after turning on power to the router: a. The Internet is not accessible. Confirm that you have the correct internet setting. b. Clear the router's configuration to factory defaults. This will set the router's IP address to 192.168.1.1. c. Turn the power off and back on to see if the router recovers. If its still not working, reset to factory defaults. You can restore the factory default configuration settings that reset the router's user name to admin, the password to password, and the IP address to 192.168.1.1. To restore the factory default configuration settings: 1. Use a sharp object such as a pen or a paper clip to press and hold the restore factory settings button, located on the rear panel of the router, for about 5 seconds, until the Power light begins to blink (see "Back Panel" on page 4). 2. Release the restore factory settings button, and wait for the router to restart, and for the Power light to stop blinking and become solid green. The factory default settings will be restored so that you can access the router from your Web browser using the factory defaults.

BLINKING POWER LIGHT WON"T RESET


A Blinking Power light on a wrt-54g usually indicates that the firmware is corrupt. You can try to wipe the firmware by following the steps below:

unplug the router
using a paper clip or pin, press the reset button
plug the router back in while the reset button is still pressed down and hold it for 30 seconds.
once you let go of the reset button the router should go through a reset. if it still blinks try the process again.

if the issue still occurs then it may be bricked.

Need password to my netgear router n 300


what is the model #?
Most netgear routers default to a username of "admin" and password is either " admin ", "password" or it is just blank. Those are the defaults unless someone changed it.
If you cant get in you can hold down the reset button on the back for 30 seconds (while it is plugged into power) and that will set it back to factory default settings then one of the above should work.
If this was a help please give me 4 thumbs up as I am trying to build up my rep on this site!

How do you set the router ?


From the router user manual on page 13 , it says:
9. Reset The "Reset" button is used in rare cases when the Router may function improperly. Resetting the Router will restore the Router's normal operation while maintaining the programmed settings. You can also restore the factory default settings by using the "Reset" button. Use the restore option in instances where you may have forgotten your custom password.
a. Resetting the Router Push and release the "Reset" button. The lights on the Router will momentarily flash. The Power/Ready light will begin to blink. When the Power/Ready light becomes solid again, the reset is complete.
b. Restoring the Factory Defaults Press and hold the "Reset" button for at least 10 seconds, then release it. The lights on the Router will momentarily flash. The "Power/Ready" light will begin to blink. When the "Power/Ready" light becomes solid again, the restore is complete.

Factory setting


Step 1 Power the unit off by unplugging its power adapter. Step 2 Insert a paper clip in to the reset pinhole. Press and hold the reset button with light pressure. Step 3 Power the device back on by plugging it in. Continue to hold the reset button. Step 4 Watch the lights on the front of the router. The M1 & M2 should come on solid. When the M1 & M2 begin to blink slowly, release the reset button. The unit will reboot itself and should be at factory defaults. If the M1 light is not blinking about once per second, unplug the power on the router and plug it back in. If the M1 & M2 continue to blink rapidly, you held the reset button for too long. Power the device off and repeat the reset procedure. The default IP address is 192.168.0.1. The default username for our routers is admin. The password is blank. If your router asks only for a password, use admin (lower-case).
