All of a sudden our 2.4 ghz 802.11b linksy wireless accesss point router does not send a signal. The power, WLAN link, link and act lights are on. Act is blinking. I have unplugged many times. Have reset. It is not the cable signal to the set as it is optimum online and I checked with tv. My airport has no bars on my Mac.

You can try the steps below and see if it will fix your problem.

1. Log in to your router interface by opening a browser. On the address bar type in http://192.168.1.1. ( this is usually the default address of linksys router)
2. Once you press enter, it will prompt you for a username and password.
Dont type anything on username and enter on the password box, the word admin.
3. Once your inside the router page, Click on wireless tab.
under wireless tab, change the wireless channel to 1, 6, or 11. If the ssid is still linksys, change it to something different. After doing these steps, press save settings. TO save the changes you made.

Lost wireless signal


Check the WLAN light on the Linksys Router if it's still on and make sure that the Wireless Adapter is ON on your HP computer and can detect other wireless networks, if WLAN is off try to do a power cycle and check again the lights... If lights are ok... connect your PC to the LAN port of the router and access the admin page, try changing channels and see if your wireless computer can detect it, if still not try to do a hard reset on the router

My wlan light keep going on and off on my wrt54g


Also check if the power light on your router is blinking. If it is blinking, that's an indication of hardware failure. To revive it, do a hard reset. Press and hold the power button of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power. Wait for 30 seconds again before you plug it back in.

I keep losing the internet signal and going offline. LAN indicates pending??? How do I perform a system reset with Linux??


Power cycle the system by shutting it down and switching it on after at least thirty seconds. Check network settings to verify the IP address and other related information. Determine if the network card is working adequately. Identify the malfunctioning adapter by disabling the cards one by one. Move one of the portable hosts--such as a laptop--closer to the router. If it works better, interference or low signal strength is the reason for poor Internet access. Inadequate signal performance can be caused by several factors including cordless devices working within the frequency range (2.4 GHz) of a wireless network, shiny surfaces and too much distance between hosts and access points. Resolve this issue by using a wireless repeater?a device that amplifies wireless signal so it reaches distant areas within the premises. Minimize signal interference by maintaining a distance of at least one meter between cordless devices and the router. Alternatively, buy gadgets that function at frequencies other than 2.4 GHz. Try changing the WiFi channel for better results. Check the functioning of wireless router and access points. Adjust the router antenna to get an optimum signal. Most wireless routers come with omni-directional antennae to send signals in all directions, a situation appropriate for a square-shaped network. If hosts are arranged in a linear fashion, use an antenna that sends signals only in one direction. Some portable routers have internal antenna, giving more freedom to users who are on the go. Use an external antenna with such routers. The market now offers antennae with varying strengths, implying some are more powerful than others. See if using a more powerful antenna fixes the problem. Aside from increasing the range of transmitted signals, the reception capacity of hosts can also be enhanced. External WiFi-enabled antennae attached to laptops are now available for this purpose. Change the location of the router and access point. They should ideally be placed centrally between all computers. As the signal bounces off smooth and shiny surfaces, routers and access points should be placed away from windows, doors, mirrors and other metallic surfaces. Examine signal performance by using the monitoring utility that typically comes with the access point. Check that the devices show correct lights. Device lights are an indicator of accurate connections. Different lighting patterns indicate different things. For example, some network cards show green light on successfully establishing a connection. Similarly, the router's wireless LAN (WLAN) light is turned on at all times, even if no device is connected to it. Further, this light blinks when a host communicates with another host. Unexpected lighting indicates a problem. Go through user manuals to get familiar with this feature and make sure the devices show desired lighting behavior. Use wireless Internet utilities to check the SSIDs and channels neighboring wireless networks are using. Change your network's SSID and/or channel if they are the same as that of other networks in the vicinity. See if correct drivers have been installed. Check configuration settings for encryption keys.

Wireless router connection problems


Assuming "cannot connect to linksys router directly" means you cannot connect to a Wireless Lan managed by Linksys router,
1) try to connect new computer to LinkSys Router using a Lan cable, add new PC to your network.
2) recover protocol (WEP or WPA) and Key of WLAN (Passphrase or Key: TKIP or AES) either from other PC on same network either from your Router.
3) If you missed actual key you must connect to router and reset it to a new key to be eventually used for every connected device.
