Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

1 Answer

Stopped working all of a sudden

The router was working fine, then one day I was online and I got kicked off from my wireless connection. I went to my wireless connections and noticed that my network was not coming up on the list anymore. So i went to the router and unplugged it for several seconds then plugged it back in. Nothing. I tried it again and again. Still nothing. So I took a look at my router and the power light keeps blinking and all of the ethernet slots are lit up. Even after I unplugged all the ethernet cables from the router, they were still lit. Does this mean that my router is done or is there anything that I can do to fix it?

    I am no longer receiving a signal from my router. The power light is ON, the Internet light is blinking, and the WLAN light (and #1 light) flashing intermittently.

    I have tried disconnecting the power and all ethernet cables (for approx. 2 minutes) and reconnecting, but still nothing.

    If it makes a difference, I am using a Mac.

Hi Hooligan87,

I hate to state the obvious but have you tried unplugging the power and replugging it back in? If that doesnt work, you might need to reflash your firmware by downloading the lastest firmware from Linksys and doing the necessary. Alternatively, here are a few other solutions to the apprent problems you're facing, including:

  1. Unplug power and wait 30 sec before plugging it back in WITH all cables attached.
  2. Trying to conenct directly to the router via the "blue" cable provided by linksys to a computer's or notebook's etehrnet port. If IP address is defualt, you should be able to log into 192.168.1.1 and see settings and configurations page.
  3. If that fails, since you mentioned that the power led light were still on even AFTER you pulled out the cables from the relative sockets, it seems to me like it might be a hardware fault in the router itself. This defiinitly calls for either servicing or a 1 to 1 exchange.
Hope this helps. Please do get back to me if the above steps do not work. Also, please dont forget to rate this solution if you found it helped you in any way. Thanks.

Try resetting the Linksys back to the factory defaults and configure it again.
Power up the router and press the pinhole RESET button on the back of the router for 30 sec
Connect a LAN cable to the wireless router and open a browser and enter to router's configuration IP address and configure the wireless settings, remove the LAN cable when configuration is completed.
You need to configure then wireless card in the computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings.

My wireless HP prn stopped working suddenly with NetGear router


You need to go into the netgear router settings online with a computer that is attached to the router. You enter this:192.168.0.1 in the address bar to gain access.You need to know your username and password to gain access to the menu. Then check the wireless settings to see or change the passphrase. Good Luck

Help please! TP-Link Wireless Router TL-WR641G stopped working


It looks like all your devices by themselves are working fine.
Good start.
If you took the router out of your office I assume that the settings from the office and your home are different, which causes the setup not to work properly.

First of all you should find out which hardware version of the router you have and download the manual from here, so you have the information at hand when you're not online.

Then you want to rest the router to factory settings, so you start clean. In order to do so, use the Factory Default Reset button: First, turn off the router's power. Second, press and hold the default reset button then turn on the router's power, until the SYS LED lights up (about 3 seconds). Last, release the reset button and wait for the router to reboot.

Follow the instructions in the manual form page 8 on onwards with a special view on setting up PPPoE. Have your information form your DSL provider handy (Account name and password).
The default webpage for the router interface is http://192.168.1.1
Username and password are both "admin".

Do not enable any wireless security until everything is working fine.

Make sure later to change the password to something else, so no one can "take over" your router.

If this solution did not help, please don't rate it as "Thanks for trying" or so, but leave a comment instead and I will check back and we can work form there.

Good luck!

Cannot connect xbox 360 to wireless router


If you use DSL I would also check to make sure you are not being port blocked by your ISP. Some will block you if you exceed bandwidth on a particular port rather than throttling you or shutting you down entirely.

Actiontec GT704-WG wireless connection not working


Hi,
you say it suddenly stopped working, if you can connect to the router via ethernet cable then try to access the router's web utility page and make sure your router is in mixed or G-only. If you can't still connect to the router through wireless then try restarting the Wireless Zero Configuration from windows. This is how it's made: Go to control panel and double-click "administrative tools", then double-click "services". You will see a list, scroll down to Wireless Zero Configuration and click "stop", you'll see a progress bar. After that click "start", you'll see another progress bar. Now try connecting to your router via wireless connection. If you still can't connect then repair the connection by right-clicking the wireless icon at the bottom right corner. Keep repairing until you connect.
Hope this works!
