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.

Linsys ea6500 blinking


If the Power or Diag LED (Light Emitting Diode) on your Linksys router is blinking, it means the firmware is corrupted. If this happens, you won't be able to do the following:
• Access the router's web-based setup page
• Assign IP addresses to computers connected to your router using its DHCP capabilities
NOTE: This also applies if your router's LED is dimly illuminated.
Listed below are the things that you can do to solve this issue:
Powercycle the router
Assign a static IP address to your computer
Ping the router
Reset the router
Update/Re-flash the firmware using the TFTP utility

Are the lights on the router stay on or blinking ?


The power light should stay solid as long as the router is plugged in. The WAN light and LAN lights are solid when you are connected, and the connection is idle. The lights blink when traffic is present. The lights are off when there is no connection.

Router turned to solid red, then turned to blinking red.


Try doing a power cycle.
-Disconnect the power from your router for 30 seconds -Reconnect the power cable and wait until the light/s turn green
Alternatively, look around your house and make sure all the cables are plugged in right and nobody tripped on one an unplugged it accidentally.

My linksys wrt160n wireless router light is blinking


Welcome to FixYa
Indication of Router Lights:
  • Power light blinks. If LAN or WAN cable is plugged in, their respective lights will flash on activity.
  • Power light turns off for several seconds.
  • All lights, except power light, turn on and then off.
  • Power light blinks slowly, then faster, and WLAN light will turn on.
  • Once Power light and WLAN light are on solid, the router is fully rebooted.

A working router should show solid green power light. upgrade the firmware of the router.

A friend gave me the d-link wbr 1310. he doesn't remember the password can you help me get my wireless conection working.


To get this working, you would need to reset the router to it's factory default. This way you would be able to start fresh.

Follow these steps:

Plug power into your router.

There is a reset button the back of the router. Use a paperclip or sharpened pencil to push it in and hold it for 1minute.

Now connect your router to your computer by connecting one of the LAN ports to your computer through an ethernet cable. The cable looks like the picture below.

Also, take another cable that looks like the picture above, and plug it from your dsl modem or your cable modem to the INTERNET port on your router.

Now unplug the power to your dsl modem or your cable modem for 45 seconds.

And Ungplug the power to your router for 45 seconds.

Plug the power to your dsl modem or cable modem back in and wait for all the lights to be solid green.

Plug the power to your wireless router and wait for all the lights to turn solid green.

Now turn on your laptop and you should be able to surf the internet.

You can go ahead and unplug the ethernet cable going from your computer to the router.

Now go to your computer's wireless radio and scan for your router.

It should appear as dlink. Go ahead and connect to it.

You have setup your wireless router.

2Wire 473 router problem


Take the modem and plug it into a GFCI outlet. You can find one in the bathroom or the kitchen.

If the power light comes on solid green and the dsl comes on red then the modem is good. Was it plugged into a power strip by the computer? If so, plug it straight into a wall outlet.

If the power light comes on solid red then the modem has hardware failure. I would contact your ISP and have them replace it if it is still underwarranty.
