Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
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.

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