    Power light comes on. Wireless light comes on. Wireless light goes off. Internet, DSL & Ethernet Lights flash on and off. All lights except for Wireless light stay on each time it is un-pluged and pluged in.

    Turns out it wasn't the router after all. It was working perfectly. The wireless light wasn't lit because there was no wireless device linking to it. The Dell internal WLAN card switch had accidently been turned off. New laptop, who new? Anyway thanks for your help. Hope this Post saves some other poor shmoe some greif. ;-)

    my wireless light is off and I can't connect to any networks either... I tried updating the driver on my computer for the wireless but apparently the device is not on so the driver can't be installed? How do I turn my wireless adaptor on?

    Thanks for any ideas you can send! :)

Your Wireless Router may have its name not broadcasting or hidden, check in the settings if it's hidden then manually connect your P.C.'s Laptops ,you won't find it using 'search for network'. Just right click on wireless icon near clock, select 'Open network and sharing center' and right click it. Now select 'Set up a new connection or network', Select 'Manually connect to a wireless network' and fill in the gaps. should work fingers crossed.

Ethernet lights 1-4 are lit, wireless light out


wireless light will be ON only if you have connected any wireless devices to your network... security light will be ON only if you enabled password to connect to your wireless network.... if you have changed any settings in the router recently, then delete the saved list of networks in the computer.... then search for wireless networks in range and connect to your network....

I have a Dell XPS 1330 laptop and a DI-524 wireless router.


Unsure what your problem is exactly but here is something to try. Power off all computers, modem and router. Power up the modem first, and wait until it is completely up before proceeding. Next power up the router and wait until it is completely up, the only light that probably wont be lit is the LAN light. Then power up each computer, they can all be powered on at the same time, that part really doesnt matter. See if that fixes the problem.

I have a 2wire router from AT&T, all lights are green, except the "wireless" light. It's not on, how do I become wireless?????


Hi dilex
The 2wire router wireless light comes only when a system is connected to it wireless.

Please post the system that you are using and also what exactly when you try to connect via wireless.

Thank you

No network


The Wireless Security of the router doesn't match your laptop's wireless settings. Make sure you configure the wireless security password correctly on the laptop. If you don't know your wireless password, try these steps:

-Connect your laptop hard wired to the router.
-Open Internet Explorer and on the Address Bard type http://192.168.1.1 press enter.
-It will prompt you for username and password. By default, there's no username and on the password type admin and hit OK. If admin didn't work, type your own password for the router.
-When you get to the Setup page, click on Wireless Tab, then click the sub-tab Wireless Security.
-Look for Security Mode. If Security Mode is WPA-Personal, the Passphrase is the wireless security key that you need to enter on the laptop's wireless settings. If the Security Mode is WEP, the WEP Key 1 is your wireless security key. Connect to the wireless network and type it in. That should solve your wireless connection problem.

Wireless router on but not working


Who is your ISP? I belive what you have is a modem router. If the interney light is not lit then it only mean that the actiontec is bridged and you need to use a dialer on your pc to connect to your ISP. If the internet light is lit, no need for a dialer just connect it straight to your pc and check your internet.
