Hello!

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.

I have an older (maybe 4 or 5 years) used WRT54GS and I am starting to have problems with the wireless internet connection with my mac book that I have had for a month. Before it used to work fine, no...


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!
good luck!

Power led is blinking after I upgrade 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.

Router only allowing 10mbps


The best and simple method to do is to do a hard reset of the router so that the factory default settings are put back.

If after that it still doesnt work check the QOS may be the port is set to use upto 10mbps only.

If not that then just upgrade to a firmware like tomato or dd-wrt they are very nice firmwares i personally use dd-wrt and its the best.

Lost wireless connection


if:

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.

Where can I get another installation CD?


You more than likely do not need an installation CD to get this router running. For what it's worth, you can download specs, firmware upgrades, etc from the following link:

Hope this helps.

Firmware Upgrade Failed


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.
