Question about SMC Barricade g SMC2804WBR Wireless Router
My SMC2804WBR router isn't working. The power, WLAN and WAN lights are on. WLAN and WAN are a bit flickery but I can't remember if they used to do that. I've done a hard reset, lights come back on, but the computers can't load anything with the signal. They see the signal on the list of wireless networks but can't connect to it. It even shows the signal as being strong but they can't load anything. When I plug the computer directly into the modem the internet works fine. Not sure where to go from here
Sounds like the router is about to die. I had the same issue with a wireless router a few years ago. It would broadcast but I would not be able to get onto the wireless no matter what I did but plugging straight into the modem and it worked just fine. If you've done a hard reset and it is still not connecting or staying connected, it is about time to replace the router.
