Hey ! it seems that there is a problem with the Firmware of the router.
The wireless connection is dropping.
You can try to upgrade the firmware.
Download the firmware from the support web site of the router manufacturer. and upgrade the firmware.
make sure that you will upgrade the firmware using the wired connection to the router NOT with the wireless connection.

I need my router password

the default password is blank for that router. the username is admin

If you need to reset your router to the default (erases all data)

Perform a 30-30-30 reset which is:

Hold the reset button for 30 seconds, (don't let go until you have performed all steps and have held the button for at least 90 seconds total).
After the first 30 seconds, unplug the power cord from the router.
Wait 30 seconds while still holding the button.
Plug it back in, wait 30 more seconds, and then let go, wait NO LESS than 5 minutes(really, go make a coffee, don't interrupt this process) and then try to log in again.

How do you set the light delay, I lost my instruction booklet.

The 4½ minute interval can be changed to 1½, 2½ or 3½ minutes as follows: Press and hold the Lock button until the light blinks (about 10 seconds). A single blink indicates the the time is reset to 1½ minutes. Repeat the procedure and the light will blink twice, resetting the timer to 2½ minutes. Repeat again for a 3½ minute interval, etc., up to a maximum of 4 blinks and 4½ minutes.

I just bought a wrt120n linksys router, i used the cd installation setup to configure it. Once i was done with the configuration, i can only get connection to the internet through wireless and not by a...

Hi Friend,

We need to configure the wireless and router settings manually. Wireless settings configured with the CD wont last for too long.

Turn on the router and make sure every wire is connected to its actual place.
At the back of the router there is a small RED/BLACK button, push and hold that button for 30 seconds. Release the button and turn off the router for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds turn it on and wait till the power light is steady.

1.Type in the web browser and hit enter
2.Enter the username and password(password is admin and leave the username blank)
3.Click MAC Address clone which is just below Setup alongwith basic setup
4.Select the Enabled button and click "Clone My PC's MAC.
5.Click Save settings
6.Click Wireless and fill the sections as mentioned
Slect the Manual Configuration button(after selecting you will get a different page)

Network Mode-Mixed
Network Name-As per your choice
Channel Width-20MHZ only
Standard Channel-11
SSID Broadcast-Enabled and click Save Settings.

7.Click Wireless Security and fill the sections as mentioned;
Security Mode-WEP
Encryption 40/64 bits 10Hex digits
Key1-Enter 10 digit or 10 letter password(example-your telephone number) and click Save Settings

8.Click Advanced Wireless Settings and fill the sections:
Beacon Interval-75
Fragmentation Threshold-2306
RTS Threshold-2307 and click Save settings.

Turn off the router for 30 seconds and turn it on. you will be able to access the internet through cable.

make sure you put the internet wire(coming from the modem)to the WAN/internet port of the router and your computer to any of the four LAN p orts.

i hope this will resolve the issue.

Router/power light constantly flashing cannot make any connection to computer

try to reset the router. On the router you will find the reset button. press it and hold it down for 30 seconds. release the reset after 30 seconds. wait for 1 minute. unplug the power and plug it back in. wait for 1 minute and check if the power light stays solid.
If not then try to reset the router again.
check if the power light stays solid.
check the IP address on the computer. If you are getting a valid IP address then try to open the set up page of the router.
If you are not getting the valid IP address and power light is not solid then I think you will need a new router.

Repeat the procedure and the light will blink twice, resetting the time to 2 1/2 minutes. Repeat again for a 3 1/2 minute interval, etc. up to a maximum of four blinks and 4 1/2 minutes.

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.

Reset router

There is a small hole on the back of the router (usually beside the power connection. If you straighten out apaper clip, you can push it into the hole. Hold it in for a full minute. It will reset the router to original factory settings. Then the password should be "admin".

Wireless router doesn't stay on

check the power source.
if the power source is verified to be working ok, try to press the reset button for 30 seconds to a minute while it's plugged in to the power source then turn it off for another 30 seconds then turn it on.
if the problem still persists, there could be a problem with the device itself and if it's still under warranty, replace it
