Reset the router for 30 second.
There is a reset button on the router. For WRT54GC the reset button might be at the bottom of the router. There is a flap that you need to turn around. You will see a small reset button. Press it and hold it down for 30 seconds.
release the button. wait for 1 minute. unplug the power to the router and plug it back in.
wait for 1 minute and see if poer light becomes solid.
If not then try to reset the router again.
if the power light is solid then it is in working condition.
Once you reset the router it will come back to the factory default settings.
You will need to reconfigure the router for Internet connection.
If the pwer light is not solid and keep on flashing then it is not in working condition.
If your router is in warranty period then contact the manufacturer and get it replaced.

Wrt54gc wirless router lights keep blinking. cannot connect via wireless router, modem is ok.


which lights keep blinking ? I would do a factory reset - button on the back - hold for at least 10secs it should then reset back to the factory condition connect the modem to the wan port
quite often the default settings may work with the modem.
post back a comment and detail the status of each light on the router also the make and model of the modem and the status of each light on the modem

For that you need to reset your router to factory defaults.
Then reconfigure fix this problem.
First RESET your router to defaults.
for that press RESET button for 10 seconds RESET button is in back side of router.
Then connect your router to computer with ethernet cable.
Then you can access it with following link.
http://192.168.1.1
or
http://192.168.0.1
type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Set WAN settings as your internet service provider settings.
Enable DHCP .
Click on wireless and enable wi fi.
If you want secure router then enable WEP security then add new code it is your password key for connect wi fi.
Also change channel type in wireless option 4,6 and 11 channel are best.
Try 1 by 1 then save settings and restart router.

The device is not working. When I conect the power, power led is off and wireless led is fixed green. Sometimes, when I reset the router, the power led turns orange, and the otrers ligths off.


This is a sign of a bad router already, so if its still under warranty you can go have this unit replace from Linksys , since this is already a hardware problem...

My Linksys WRT54GC suddenly stopped working. The router has no power light but the wireless and internet light are green.


Sounds like a PSU failure possibly.

If you can still get wired internet then its not dead. Its even possible the power LED is pooched if you can still use the wired connections.

Did you buy the router in France? Verify you current firmware version from the router's interface (accessible via http://192.168.1.1), I believe the current version available in English is 1.00.6. Download the firmware and flash it on the router. Here's the link:

Internet Light Stays Red on WAG54GS Wireless Router


If your router's internet light is red it means to say that there's no connection. You really have to call Tesco.
