Hi

Thank you for your query

This should be a solid light not a flashing light, and it highly likely the cause of your problems

I would suggest you try plugging it into a different socket to ensure it is not a faulty socket

Failing this you may need to purchase another adapter first in case that is faulty. They can be purchased cheaply from ebay

If this fals then your router itself is faulty and will need to be replaced

Regards
Shauqat

2 Press and hold the "Reset" button.

We just got a road runner cable motem, and I had a linksys router before we got the road runner. I have a dsixl, and it's not connecting to the linksys anymore. please help.


Unplug the roadrunner cable modem completely as well as the Linksys. Let them sit for 20 minuets or so and then plug in the roadrunner modem first. Let it power up completely and then connect the linksys via the internet or wan port.

Check for connectivity.

If no internet connection enter the linksys control web page usually at 192.168.1.1 and perform a ip address release/renew on the status page.

If you do not know your admin login for linksys the default is admin with a password of admin. If you are unable to access the router then perform a factory reset on the router.

Make sure the router is powered ON. Then Press+Hold the Reset button of your router for 30secs first. (Reset is found on the back panel of your router, you have to use a pen or a paper clip to press the button) For the LED's if the power blinking that indicates that the router is being reset and then power-cycle the router for only 30secs.

If the Power LED won't blink Press+Hold the Reset Button for 1min and then Power-cycle the router for another 1min. Then check the IP address of your PC then try accessing your router's GUI admin console using a web browser with the address of 192.168.1.1 and use admin as your password.

My linksys wrtp54g wont stop blinking. I have internet from the modem and when i connect the ethernet cable to the router it just blinks and I dont get any connection. I have tried the reset button......


hi

Configure the Router 1. Step 1
Open your web browser, type " http://192.168.1.1/ " into the address bar and hit "Enter."
2. Step 2
Use "Admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank.
3. Step 3
Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup."
4. Step 4
Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP.
5. Step 5
Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password.
6. Step 6
Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router.

Linksys has stopped working - no connectivity. I directly connected the modem to computer and it works fine. Power light on Linksys is green but is blinking and does not go to steady green.


You can try to follow the steps from this link to fix the blinking power light of your router, because a blinking power light is a sign of something is bad on the router. But if after doing the steps and still a blinking power the router is already bad and needs replacement.

The Linksys WRT54G ver.6 worked until yesterday when I lost access to the internet. The "power" light is blinking continuously, so I went through the troubleshooting exercise of power off, power on - no...


Blinking power light usually indicates device being faulty. Was there a power surge? Try resetting the router by pushing the small reset button at the back with a pin for 10 seconds, then power it off and on. See what happens

I have a linksys wrt150n wireless router


Do you see the wireless light blinking? IF yes then there are a few things you should try.
1. Factory reset. Press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds then reconfigure your router and see if it resolves the issue
2. Firmware update. Download the firmware update and then access you router and click on firmware update and browse for the update you have downloaded(you have to extract it first just in case its zipped) Hopefully that will do the trick.

If none of the these work then its a hardware fault and you will have to get your router serviced!
Goodluck!

Sai.

Setting up the BEFVP41 Router with a Cable Modem and a Dynamic IP Address


Connecting the Router and the Modem 1. Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If it is not, contact your Internet Service Provider. 2. Shut down the computer, and unplug the power cables to both the router and the Broadband modem. 3. Disconnect the Ethernet cable from the computer and plug it into the Internet or WAN port of the router. 4. Take the Ethernet cable that came with the router (or any another available cable) and connect it to the computer. Then, take the other end of that same cable and connect it to Port 2 on the back of the router. 5. Plug in the Broadband modem's power cable and wait for all of its lights to stop blinking. 6. After the lights on the Broadband modem stop blinking, plug in the router's power cable. 7. Start up the computer. Obtaining the PC's MAC Address Windows 98SE/ME 1. Click on the Start menu, then click on the Run option. 2. When the ?Run? window opens, input winipcfg into the ?Open? field, then click on the OK button. 3. The ?IP Configuration? window should appear, select the Ethernet Adapter that the PC is using from the drop down list. 4. Make note of the ?Adapter Address? which is the MAC Address. Windows XP/2000 1. Click on the Start menu, then click on the Run option. 2. When the ?Run? window opens, input cmd into the ?Open? field, then click on the OK button. 3. When the ?MS DOS Prompt? appears, input ipconfig /all then click on the [Enter] key. 4. Make note of the ?Physical Address? of the Ethernet Adapter (normally ?Local Area Connection?). Accessing the Setup Page 1. Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape. 2. When the browser window opens, go to the Address bar and type in the router's IP Address and click on the Go button (192.168.1.1 is the default IP address of Linksys Routers). 3. A window will appear prompting for a ?User Name? and a ?Password?. Leave the ?User Name? field blank, and type in the router's password and click on the OK button to login (admin is the default password). 4. The router's web-based ?Setup? utility should then load. Cloning the MAC Address The steps for configuring the MAC Address Cloning feature of a Linksys router vary depending on the firmware version the router is currently using. From the router?s ?Setup? page, locate the Linksys logo in the upper left-hand corner of the page. Follow the instructions below depending on which logo matches your specific screen: If the logo matches the image above ("Linksys - A Division of Cisco Systems, Inc."), follow these steps. If not, skip to the next logo version. 1. From the ?Setup? page, click on the MAC Address Clone sub-tab. 2. In the ?MAC Clone? section, set the option to Enable. 3. Click on the Clone Your PC?s MAC button. Once this is done, the ?User Defined Entry? will show MAC Address of the Ethernet Adapter of the computer you are using. Verify this address with the ?Adapter Address? or ?Physical Address? observed in earlier steps. 4. Click on the Save Settings button. Then, click the Continue button if prompted. If the logo matches the image above ("Linksys"), follow these steps: 1. From the ?Setup? page, click on the Advanced tab. 2. When the ?Filters? page loads, click on the MAC Addr. Clone tab. 3. When the ?MAC Address Clone? page loads, enter the the ?Adapter Address? or ?Physical Address? that was observed in earlier steps. 4. Click on the Apply button. Then, click the Continue button if prompted. Power Cycling 1. Shut down the computer. 2. Unplug the router?s power cable. 3. Unplug the Broadband modem?s power cable. 4. Wait for 30 seconds. 5. Plug in the Broadband modem?s power cable and wait for its lights to stop blinking. 6. Plug in the router's power cable once the modem?s lights stop blinking. 7. Finally, start up the computer and test the Internet connection.
