You did not post model, you did not post what operating system on your computer either. general help therefore only can be provided. if you post required data, then i can provide more detailed instructions how to check your router.

disconnect all cables from the router, including power cable, wait about 20sec then insert cable connecting to the computer, insert cabel connecting your telephone line and then insert power cable.

in about 2min router should connect itself to the line and to the computer.

check if you have valid ip address on your computer (in most linksys routers it will look someting like: 192.168.1.***), that will meant that router did establish connection with computer. check if you can connect to the internet (through the cable!), if you can, this meant that your router is working correctly, so is your computer. disconnect cable and check if you can connect via wireless, if yes, problem is solved, if you cannot, check and compare settings between your computer and router, problem ususally is wrong credentials on the computer or wrong protocol. both of these must be same on the router and on the computer.

if you use wep, wep must be in both, on router and on the computer, if you use network name johnny, exactly this same spelling in router and computer must follow, same with password. and do not use spaces in passwords! especially if you use password on every login...

Hi

If you have an internet connection using the ethernet cable but not on the wireless and there is an orange light blinking.. Try to reset the router by pressing the reset button located on the back or on the location were you can twist the stand for the router. press it for about 10secs and that will return the router on a factory settings. before u reset the router make sure to acces the configuration for the internet settings of your isp provider. if the orange light still there, try to download the latest firmware of your router on linksys site and that should fix the problem

Router stopped working.


As long as the power light stays solid, then the router is fine. You need to reconfigure the router for it to receive internet connection from the modem.

2. Press and hold reset at the back of the router for about 15 seconds.
3. After 15 seconds turn off the router and then turn off the modem. Wait for a minute.
4. Power on modem and wait for the lights to be ready.
5. When modem lights are on, turn on router.
6. There should be 4 lights on. Power should be steady green. Internet, WLAN and Ethernet port.
7. Checked if you have Internet connectivity on your laptop while it is wired to the router.
