When i turn on the power to my router, all of the lights turn on and freeze


Try to reboot your router...normally reboot are two types...

In Netgear router, when you change the router configuration, it does a "soft reboot", which is related to the operating system reboot.
And a "hard reboot" is usually done by removing power from the router and rebooting it after powering it off for several seconds.

->open your browser and login your router page using username and password..
->Click the Diagnostics option which is under the Maintenance on the left hand side of your Netgear setting page.
->Then click the Reboot button and it will automatically reboot your router.

***Reboot process can vary depending on different Netgear wireless router models.

If you need any kind of technical assistance you can contact support cell at http://www.vtechsquad.com/

Power supply


The power supply is built in to the 'power cord'. On most consumer routers there is a transformer and rectifier built in to the wall plug. The cord that connects to the device carries low voltage DC current to the electronics inside the router case that has all of the other RJ-45 sockets, indicator lights and antennas.

Search ebay for your router and include the words power supply.

I cannot stay connected to internet, my model 2701HG-B 2wire at&t dsl will start flashing red then disconnect me from the internet or my game site, how can i get this to stay fluently connected please!


You might want to try disconnecting everything EXCEPT the power cord. If you still get the red power light (it should stay there forever) then bring the gateway to Radio Shack or somewhere they have a 5 volt DC @ 2 amp power supply and plug it in for 5 to 10 minutes and see if the power light then stays green. If it stays green then all you need is a new power supply! If not, then the gateway is fried. Mine keeps going from a solid green power light to a flashing green power light and I can hear a relay click every 2 minutes at which time a pop-up say "ethernet line disconnected". I tried new power supply etc. to no avail! It is fried after 1.5 years! No more 2wire for me!

On belkin surf router clicked on set as access point. then i tried to change it but my computer cant get internet from the router so i cant access the belkin homepage. can u help


the only thing you need to do is reset your router to go the IP address original 192.168.2.1
because when you setup it as a access point the router change the Ip Address.

restore the router to factory default settings, please do the following:

1. Unplug the router's power supply
2. Press and hold the reset button on theback of the router
3. Keep the reset button depressed and, at the same time, plug the power supply back in
4. Keep the reset button depressed for another 10 seconds
5. Release the reset button

do this for 3 times and you will acces your router.


Good luck

I forgot the password to my wireless connection and i need a passphrase or a key code to get online wireless. Please help, Evan


No choice, your have to reset the router to it factory default settings. Just look at the rear side of your router beside the power supply input, there is a reset button, just turn on your router and press the router for more than 5 sec. Please note that, this action will clears the router’s user
settings, including User ID, Password, IP Address, and Subnet mask.
So please make sure u have that information before do so especially internet UserID and Password.

I hit the reset button on the router and now I can't connect to my wireless network. How do I fix this?


Try turning everything off- pc, modem, router, other pcs and periferals on the network, wait 10 minutes, then start turning everything on gradually- pc, modem router, etc. Hopefully everything will reset ok.

I can't remember my password


I was about to join in the throwing out the window, when it hit me to disconnect everything but the power supply including the machine that you use to access the admin. Hold the reset, wait a few moments then connect only the admin system, I did it with a network cable. Enter new settings and all phones/laptops etc connect fine now. Hope this helps.

Continuously lose connection


Intermittent Connectivity:
NOTE: Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).
This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the Linksys router.
Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:
  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the Linksys router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.
Reducing Wireless Interference
If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors’), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router’s channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.
Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.

  • Placement of the router: Linksys suggests that you place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor, and high up in the room.
  • Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.
Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Linksys suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.
NOTE: If the wireless connection remains unstable after performing the steps above, upgrade the router’s firmware.

For the Firmware update go to :www.linksys.com
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
