Sounds like you have given it a good shot. Hopefully the power outage did not 'brown out' which causes damage to some devices. Here is what I would do. With everything connected and powered up, do a hard reset of your modem/router by pressing the recessed button for 10 secs or so. Then log on and re-enter you user name and password and allow DHCP to find all the connected devices. Reserve addresses if you want to. This has worked for me when I had a similar problem. Good luck!
Try recycling the router by unplugging it then after 20 seconds plug it
back in. See if you can stay connected. If not, unplug the modem and the
router, then plug the modem in and let it cycle up for about a minute
or two, then plug the router in and let it cycle up.
If you turn your computer and router off at night, then when you turn
them back on, if the router boots up before the modem, it will have
connection problems. A power outage in the house causes the same thing
if the router cycles up before the modem.
First reset all settings of your router to factory defaults.
You can reset it with RESET button it is in back side of router.press it for 10 seconds.
Then check led status.
Disconnectr all connection from router then reconnect then check.
Soemtimes power problem create this problem .
Change your main power supply also check after change power adapter.
check ADSL cable ethenret cable to .
If still face same issue then your router has some hardware issue.
Let me know if you need more assistanse.
Try to do a power cycle. unplug the power to the router and the modem for 30 seconds. After that power on the modem first and wait for all the lights to go solid, then power on the router. Check your connection again
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.
1. it seems that the power outrage had caused your wireless settings to be restored to its factory settings .... so there is a need to reconfigure it again ...
"the settings that are saved to my computer do not match" --- this usually pertains to the network settings saved on your laptop, if it is vista you must delete the old profile,it also applies for xp OS ....
VISTA : >network and sharing center > manage wireless connections >under networks you can view or modify, highlight the old profile then remove
XP : >netowrk connections > right click on wireless network connection and go to properties >click on wireless tab >under preferred networks (box in the middle) highlight then remove 2. to check this do ipconfig on the cmd line •check the default gateway if it is still 192.168.1.1 or 2.1 ( the default gateway is the rtr's address) •open your browser, then type the rtrs ip • leave the username blank, password is admin ( small caps) • then you are in the set up page • check the wireless tab, and very the ssid if it is still or the name of your network which you used to connect to ... • just save the settings if you want to make changes
****** very impt : while doing this changes, your main pc or dsktop pc must be hardwired to the router ,, never make changes wirelessly coz the connection is very instable you will be kicked of everytime ..... ***********
check you cable connections, try to check if you can go online wired to the router if you are connecting wirelessly. You can also bypass the router and connect directly to the modem to make sure its working.
Make sure you have the wireless icon on the taskbar lower right side. If it does not show connected, click the icon and search for wireless devices, you should see the router. connect to the router. Also make sure you have a solid DSL/CABLE status light on the service modem. BPCS
