Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

Apparently wireless works, but not the wired network

When the WRT54G is plugged in, the lights come on for power, DMZ, and WLAN. No lights come on for the Ethernet and Internet ports. Is it trashed, or is there some way to fix it?
I have a BEFW11S4 which has the opposite problem: Ethernet but no wireless. Perhaps parts could be swapped to make one of them work?

If your computer is plug in to one of the ethernet ports that should light up. If not you can try another computer or try another ethernet cable. There is possibility that the port is busted.

You can perform a reset on your router and see if the status of the lights change.

If you think your router is still under warranty , you can call linksys support at 1800linksys .. They will be able to diagnosed the problem with your unit, if its faulty or not.

Cheers,

WHAT LIGHTS ON LINKSYS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE BLINKING


Note that incoming traffic will cause the WAN (or Internet) light to blink even if it is 'probe' traffic trying to break in to your network. Such traffic is to be expected and is the reason you have firewall functionality in your gateway router.

On the inside, there is a bit of traffic on any LAN when the computers are turned on. Messages generated by the router itself are used to find computers and printers for a lot of different legitimate reasons.

No wireless connection for laptop. Linksys router - model #wrt160n v2


you can run a direct line to that router and go to the cisco web site and get the information you need to run that router. its a pdf format and is 2.56 Meg. Try this

SecureEasySetup (Orange/White) The Cisco logo is the Router's SecureEasySetup button. It

lights up and will stay orange when the Router is powered on. The color orange indicates that

the Router is not using the SecureEasySetup feature, while the color white indicates that the

Router is using the SecureEasySetup feature. When the Router enters SecureEasySetup

mode, the Cisco logo will turn white and start flashing. After the Router has generated

the SSID and WPA Personal key, the Cisco logo will stop flashing and stay white.

To clear the SSID and WPA Personal key, press and hold down the Cisco logo for five seconds.

The Cisco logo will flash slowly as the Router resets itself. The Cisco logo will turn orange to

indicate a successful reset.NOTE: SecureEasySetup is a feature that makes

it easy to set up your wireless network. If you have SecureEasySetup devices, run the Router's

Setup Wizard CD-ROM and follow the onscreen instructions to use SecureEasySetup.

Power (Green) The Power LED lights up and will stay on while the Router is powered

on. When the Router goes through its selfdiagnostic mode during every boot-up, this

LED will flash. When the diagnostic is complete, the LED will be solidly lit.

DMZ (Green) The DMZ LED indicates when the DMZ function is being used. This LED will

remain lit as long as DMZ is enabled. WLAN (Green) The WLAN LED lights up when

the wireless feature is enabled. If the LED is flashing, the Router is actively sending or

receiving data over the network. 1, 2, 3, 4 (Green) These numbered LEDs, corresponding with the numbered ports on the Router's back panel, serve two purposes. If the LED is continuously lit, the Router is successfully connected to a device through that port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over that port.

Internet (Green) The Internet LED lights up when there is a connection made through the

Internet port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over the Internet port.

Good luck

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.

Wlan will be on only if you are connecting wirelessly .

Router not responding at all


Refer to the instruction booklet about how to re-initialize (re-set) the router. You will then have to re-enter all the setups.

If it does not re-initialize, then it is internaly defective.

Some light on; some not


disconnect power supply from the router, wait for 30 seconds , and reconnet it back then check you get the power light.. if not try in a different power outlet..check the physical connection, the modem should be connected to internet slot in the router ,so that you would find the internet light lit up.., if still you do ont see the power light or the wlan light, reset your router, if you look at the back of your router, you would find a reset button, press and hold the reset button , with a pen on paper clip for 30 seconds with the power cable connected and disconnectc power and reconnect and then check..if still not the problem is with your router
