Question about NetGear WGT624 Wireless Router

Router not working, blinking wireless light, no internet light

The power light is on, the wireless light is blinking, and the internet light is off. I have unplugged it, let it sit for 5-10 minutes, then plugged it back in several times, but it's not working. I have also done the same with the modem and restarted my computer, but it's definitely the router that's the problem and I have no idea what to do next. Any ideas?

Either take the router to a qualified technician, and spend $25 to $50 for "trouble-shooting", or spend $50 and buy a brand-new D-Link or Linksys or Cisco router.

Probably, this is because of Firmware Issue, There are firmware updates for most of netGear routers and they have to be done.

If you do these updates, you will have to write down all details of you networ/router manually and once the update is complete, you will be manually setting up the router,

IF you have the netgear support no. and your router is still in warranty, contact netgear and ask them help you do these updates..

the website with the updates are

My Netgear WPN824 wireless router stopped working. With the exception of the internet LED (which doesn't come on at all), all of the lights are blue and doing sort of a slow, pulsating blink. No m


The RESET button is for resetting the wireless section of the router and does not effect the Internet connection.
It looks like the wireless access is faulty especially when you cannot reset and configure the wireless settings.
Try powering off the Netgear for 10 mins the connect the power again.
If you still cannot RESET the Netgear then it is faulty and you need a new wireless router.

Why is my port lights and internet lights blinking no power light comes on at all?


If the indicator for the numbers and the internet are blinking like christmas lights, this indicates that might be a hardware problem on your linksys router. A working router should show solid green power light. You may still resolve this by upgrading the firmware of the router.

Router won't broadcast


Use your computer's web-browser to connect to the web-server "inside" the router.
Check the 'WAN' settings -- they seem to be OK, since you have Internet access.
Check the 'Wireless' settings, or just rerun the Wireless Configuration Wizard, to rebuild your wireless network.

Modem router light blinking (no wireless connection) F5D8631-4


Try restoring the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and pressing the RESET button on the back of the Belkin for 7 secs. Then connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Belkin, open IE browser and type the configuration IP address and configure the wireless settings ie. SSID, encryption etc. The computer wireless cards will need to be configured with the Belkin wireless settings to allow them to communicate with the Belkin.

My wlan light keep going on and off on my wrt54g


Also check if the power light on your router is blinking. If it is blinking, that's an indication of hardware failure. To revive it, do a hard reset. Press and hold the power button of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power. Wait for 30 seconds again before you plug it back in.
