First, unplug the power cord from the back of the router then plug it back it, check the lights. If wireless light stays off, log into the device and check the wireless settings to make sure that wireless services have not been disabled. You will need to know the default username and password used to log into the device, so if you have the manual, it would be helpful. If you do not have the manual, reply to me with the make and model of the wireless device and I will search for the default login id.

If wireless has not been disabled, and resetting the device does not work, then you will probably need to replace the device. Make sure it is not under warranty first. If it is still under warranty, let the manufacturer replace for free.

Any more questions please ask.

Its saying my wireless internet is connected but when i plugged the internet cord into the router, it doesnt work anymore! its been like that for about a month & a half now.


Make sure all the wires are connected properly. 1.-Unplug your modem and router from the power supply. Wait 1 minute. 2.-Plug your modem back to the power and wait for all the lights to stop flashing. 3.-Plug your router back to the power and wait for the lights to stop flashing
Follow these steps and your internet should be working again!

Hi, I'm an idiot! PLEASE HELP


you may be suffering from mixed Cat 5 and Cat 6 cabling.
The wiring is slightly different and they don't work well when mixed in routers and modems etc. One or the other will work , but when they're mixed it'll do what you have going on here...

I would recommend wiring everything with cat 6 ethernet cabling. Look on your cable and you will find the labeling on the outer casing.

Have you check your DNS settings within your Wireless Network Adapter TCP/IP properties settings? Or it may be a proxy server or firewall settings wich may block internet access to the internet. Try testing it with your LAN cable first and see if you are able to connect to the internet using that cable from the laptop/pc to the modem. If it works using the network cable then it might be a DNS related issue on your wireless network adapter tcp/ip properties.

Linksys Power cut problem


With regard to power cuts, i highly suggests you to buy a UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) to prevent further damage to your router. You can simply reconfigure the wireless settings of the router by accessing the router's Setup Page. Go to http://192.168.1.1, go to wireless tab and you can change the network name as well as enable the wireless security.
