Re: power indicator keep on blinking
blinking power light after firmware upgrade sometimes indicates that the upgrade is not sucessful or the firmware that you load is incorrect.
-- try to reset the router for 30secs and check if the power light is still blinking
-- if its still blinking check your pc's ip address while connected to the router
-- if the ip address of your pc is invalid (169.x.x.x.) turn to manually assign static ip address to your computer and check if you can ping your routers ip address
-- if you can ping the routers ip address, upload the correct firmware to your router
-- if you cant ping your routers ip address still, reset the router again and try to ping the routers ip address once again
-- try to change port and cables
-- if still unable to ping the routers ip address, chances are that the router might be defective now
Too many PCs or devices on the power grid may drain the power when running together making the power led blink till it gets back to peak power. You may want to check and make sure that the amp load in the room you are using can handle all the power demand in the room. A normal size office should have a minimum of one 20A braker on size 12 wires or 10. Never put a 20A braker if the wiring is 14 in the room. In that case you want to add another line from your main fuse box.

WRT54GS may be more reliable router and you can continue to use it. Try power cycle first check cables! If no improvement you can reset! that will bring it factory default!
Other important matter is check the firmware upgrading firmware is a good solution for these kind of problems!
Currently available routers are much better if you are willing to get a new router N router is the way to go! They wider area coverage and faster network speeds!
Try to hard reset the router and make sure that the LED light indicators are steady specially the power... if you have a blinking power light I believe it means that you have a faulty router... if it would stay steady try upgrading the firmware...
Something went wrong during the upgrade of your firmware. If you were upgrading the firmware from Linksys website you need to call their tech support and have them replace it for you. If you were trying to hack it with a 3rd party firmware you probably need to go buy another one and maybe consider using the firmware it comes with. You cannot restore the device because the flash killed the restore function. Your device is cooked. Put some BBQ sauce on it and serve it for dinner.
if the power light is blinking, a little bad news because the router is now showing a sign of defectivity, a firmware upgrade could be a solution.
you may try to reset it this way:
Press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds, once you reach the 25th seconds, unplug the power then put it back in right on the 30 second, then release the reset button, wait for another 20 seconds then unplug the power from the router, after around 5-10 seconds plug it back in.
Firmware upgrade is a simple but a delicate procedure. Make sure you are loading the correct firmware. You should get your firmware from the website of your router. Installing a THIRD PARTY firmware to your router voids the warranty of your router. Here is a tip for a successful firmware upgrade. BEFORE FIRMWARE UPGRADE(push the reset button of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power of the router for 10 seconds). Upgrade the firmware. After the upgrade push the reset button again for 30seconds, unplug power for 10 seconds.
Hi, I am having the same problem with the WRT54XG4 but i discovered that if you disconect the internet port of your router and leave the ethernet port conected to your computer. You can access to the router and you can upgraded.
