Wirelss router not working

I have the N-broadband wireless router. It isn't working properly. It is a month old. I have unplugged it, reset it. I have my computer plugged directly into my modem so I can access the internet. None of the computers in my house can detect this router at all. Does it need to be replaced?

I don't think it needs to be replaced. have you installed the installation disk that came with it, if so

if you have windows
1. go to my computer
2. click on the my network places tab on the left panel
3. then click set up a wireless network for a home or small office
4. then jut follow the wizard set by set.

if that doesn't work, make sure your computer's wireless adapters are able to pick up your router's N broadband signals. if not you might need to go out and buy wireless N adapters for all your computers.

    Wireless router needs to be reset due to power surge


    leave the wirelss router powered then press and hold down the "reset" button situated in the back for 30 minutes.

    Your router will be as new as factory settings.

    If it is lynsys then you may use either the disc that came with it or type 192.168.1.1 (default Lynsys IP Address) having connected router to PC.

    Wireless router not working all of the sudden


    Reset your router, it would enable you to connect
    On the back of your router there is a little black reset button. Use a pen or paper clip and press down for 10 seconds. Make sure the lights on the router stop blinking for one second. Release the button and make sure to reset your wireless security and network ID.
    If that doesn't work just unplug your routers power cord. This is the easiest way to reset your internet connection without resetting your router to factory settings.
    If neither of those work, unplug the power cord of your modem. This will completely reset the internet connection without resetting the routers settings.

    Blinking power light - router not working properly


    Blinking power light on the Linksys routers indicate 2 things. 1st is firmware problem, 2nd is the worst one which is defective router. You can still revive it if you can reload the firmware. If not, it's a dead one and you need to purchase a new one. And man, your router is a very old one. You must switch to wireless G router, its 5 times faster than your wireless B and it only cost 30 or 40 bucks
