Try umpluging the router for fifteen minutes. If that doesn't hit the reset button on the back, and reconfigure the router. If that doesn't do it sounds like your router might got toasted by a surge.

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.

Wan diag light stays red - is router bad?


Did you try a hard reset:
. This is done by simply holding down the reset button located on the back of the unit for at least 30 seconds. Once the router has been reset, it must be reconfigured. Using your web browser go to URL address http://192.168.1.1. You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password “admin”, in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to “admin” on some of the newer Linksys router models).

if the power led stays red, you need a new router.

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.
