Router not working

My wireless router was working one day and then with no warning, it stopped working. Confirmed the internet supply is not the problem, when plugging in directly, it works. I've powered down for over 30 seconds several times. Computer is finding the name and connecting.Following lights are on solid: power, wlan, 1& 3. Not sure what else to do to troubleshoot.

If you have not already done so I would try to reset the modem to factory. You can do this by holding in the reset but for 30 seconds or in the web interface.

If you still have trouble I would try to reinstall or update the firmware to see if this fixes the problem.

If the above does not work you most likely have a hardware problem and will need to look at replacing the router.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

    Thanks. What do I do with the online version? If I reset, I'm not sure what to do after that?


    Thanks

Linksys router not recognize internet


Make sure your router's WAN port is set to dynamic IP. If the light on the front doesn't glow/blink for the WAN port, try a different cable. If a different cable doesn't work it's probably toast. :( This problem appears to be directly linked to the relationship between the WAN port and the modem. Given that the devices can connect to the router, but not internet, it has to be the WAN. Sometimes if the modem goes out it will send too much voltage through to the router and fry the WAN. Had that happen to my parents router. If the above doesn't "fix ya" then try a different router.

Worst case, you might have to put a wireless card in your PC and bridge the modem (wired connection) to the wireless card and broadcast for your wireless devices. At least until you get a new router.

Netgear router simply stopped connecting to the internet both wirelessly and ethernet


Hi,

Default username is : admin
Default password is : password

Don't worry about IP addresses etc. it is automatic by default when you reset your Router. And you can just add a password for wireless IF you want to after you reset it.

Can't get internet to work with dir-615 router for more than a day or two at a time


If you have more than one device hooked up to the router, when the problem occurs try pinging another device. If you are able to then the router is working fine and most likely the modem is flaky and needs to be replaced. The modem supplies the internet connection, the router just applies NAT so that more than one device and use your public IP address. If this turns out to be the issue make sure you contact your ISP for any special instructions. For instances Comcast requires the MAC address located on the bottom or back of the modem in order for your connection to work, other ISP use proxy settings. Century Link has no requirements.

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!

Wireless router not working all of the sudden


Reset your router, it would enable you to connect
On the back of your router there is a little black reset button. Use a pen or paper clip and press down for 10 seconds. Make sure the lights on the router stop blinking for one second. Release the button and make sure to reset your wireless security and network ID.
If that doesn't work just unplug your routers power cord. This is the easiest way to reset your internet connection without resetting your router to factory settings.
If neither of those work, unplug the power cord of your modem. This will completely reset the internet connection without resetting the routers settings.

Lost internet connection


If that Toshiba laptop is not in use do you still experience that problem?
You may change wireless channel in your router.
Do a firmware upgrade for your router as well.

Hope this helps!

Wired and wireless computers


First get your router works with the internet on the wired connection before considering the wireless connection simplying the initial problem.

Once the router works wired is time to try the wireless.

Once the wireless works unsecured you may want to change the router and wireless adapter to secure the wireless network.

So this can be a three step process.

If you internet service is provided by a cable(tv) there is a reasonable chance your router will work out of the box no configuration changes. However, if your internet service is supplied on the phone line chances your router will work as it comes out of the box are much less. Who is your Internet Service Provider and if possible can you supply a link to their help/support website so I can see if they supply configuration instructions?

Dropping internet connection


check if this problem is with both wired and wireless computers, if not with the wired..only wireless has problems, check if you have any other wireless device operating in the same frequency of the router..if s, turn off other devices and check b.cos that me interfere your w/ls connection, if wired is having the same problem, connect modem straight to the pc and observe the connection, so that you can isolate problem..
