SOURCE: WRT610n router power led light blinks and i cant

If the power light is blinking on the router , then it might not be working properly.
You will need to press the reset button on the back side of the router for 30 seconds. release it. unplug the power cable. plug it back in. wait for a minute and check if the power light is solid.
If not then try to reset the router again.
do the same thing and check if the power light is solid.

If the power light is solid then you will need to set up the router again.
If the power light is still blinking, then connect the computer to the router and check the IP address on the computer. If the IP address is 192.168.1.100 then try to open the set up page of the router and check the settings of the router.

agree that turn off your modem first before trying to open the router's setup page. By default, there's no username and the password is admin on Cisco 2911

I want to secure my internet



  1. Follow these steps to configure Linksys WRT160N wireless router.

    1.Open Internet Explorer, it does not matter if you see error message such as "The page can not be displayed" . now erase everything on the address bar and type in this IP address: 192.168.1.1 or the full address: http://192.168.1.1This is the default IP address for the router set by Linksys.
  2. 2 Hit the Enter key on your keyboard to connect to the router's web admin control panel. You will be prompted a login window for the username and password: the default admin username is "admin" and the default admin password is "password". If you can't connect to this admin control panel, you will need to change the IP address on your modem, maybe your modem is using the same IP 192.168.1.1 also, just unplug the router from your modem, and hook up your computer directly to the modem and fire up the web browser and enter the IP 192.168.1.1 and follow the on screen direction to get in.
  3. 3 It will then ask you to change password, then you make up a password that is meaningful for you to remember. You will need to write down the username and password for future reference because I am sure you will forget. You will need to reset the router if you forget the router password, and that will erase everything saved inside the router setting.
  4. 4 After successfully login, you will be in the Basic Setup of your Linksys WRT160 wireless router. You also might need to clone the Mac Address if you are using Cable Broadband (Comcast), to do this go to Mac address clone -> Enable, then clone my computers Mac.
  5. 5 If you are using Verizon, you might need to change the Internet Connection Type to PPPoE and enter your username and password that is created by Verizon.
  6. 6 I think many of you concern more on the Wireless secrutiy. Click the Wireless tab and enable the wireless security, you will need to choose a type of security encryption, WEP is weaker, you will need to type 10 characters for the pass code. The WPA or WPA2 is much stronger that it takes passphrase. For more security on wireless connection, you can also try to use MAC authentication, each of your laptop or wireless card has unique MAC address, you find out the MAC address on your laptop then enter it into your router so only this laptop can have access to the wireless connection.

Trying to reconfigure the router and a message comes up "unable to connect to router" I've done all the steps even reset to factory settings.


If you've tried reseting it, then the IP address is probably one of the following:

192.168.1.1
192.168.0.1

If you know how, try to ping the router via command prompt. You can do this by going to:

Start Menu>Run
then type
cmd

A black window will appear, try typing:

ping [one of the IP addresses above]

if nothing "replies" then you have a bad connection. If one of them does reply.

Try typing that IP address into the browser address bar to bring up the routers web interface.

If it's a linksys, try this for the username and password

Username: admin
Password: admin

for Netgear:

Username: admin
Password: password

Windows adds http:// to 192.168.1.1, and I get an error page instead of router pages.


Did you change the IP address of the router? Can you ping the gateway IP?

My linksys wrt54GC stops working when connect internet cable


There might be a reason that the default gateway of your router and the internet are same.So first connect your router to any one of the computer and open the router page by typing 192.168.1.1 (username should be left blank and password-admin).Then on the basic setup page change the Local IP address to 10.10.10.1,scroll down and click save settings.Now power off your router and connect internet cable to internet port of the router.Switch on the power of router and now try to go online. If you are unable to go online then connect your computer directly to the modem and download the new firmware from www.linksys.com/support and connect your computer then to the router,upgrade the firmware of the router and try to go online by connecting internet cable.

Cannot connect to the internet or access DSL modem


Wow! You have done a great first step to your solution. Since the router bypass (direct to your modem) works, you answered my first question of the user/password.

You need to find the ISP's configuration requirements. Typically, it is just the DNS IP, Subnet mask and Gateway IP. If your ISP requires proxy, or other protocols, I have not configured for that -- so hopefully you just need the config as stated. Find the admin screens in the router and plug in these values. The from another browser session -- try to hit a public website like www.google.com (my favorite).

Also, if that does not work, open a command prompt and see if you can "ping" the DNS and Gateway servers. That is not always conclusive as some servers refust to respone to PING. The ISP typically leaves that available for such troubleshooting.

if you need the manual, a good place is at: http://www.generalmanual.com/Network/Linksys-WRT54GC-Compact-Wireless-G-Broadband-Router.htm
