I would try to swap the power connector and check the voltage output with a multimeter from the POwer Outlet. It very well may be that the power connector for the Linksys may be defective and putting out a weak output and therefore causing your linksys unit to receive poor signal.

    Put the positive terminal on the inside of the connector of the power jack and the negative terminal on the outer shield of the power jack connector, not in the outlet on the connector that plugs in the Linksys but before doing that plug the power supply to the outlet on the wall and test the connecting lead that goes into the linksys power input , see how much power is coming out of the lead. And im sure if all else fails just exchange the unit for another one.



    Good luck.

WLAN light will not go on


I would advice you to perform a factory reset on your unit if you think the wireless light is completely and your wireless computers are not connecting wirelessly. Factory reset will delete all your settings and you need to set up the internet back.

You can also try power cycling the unit. Turn if off for 2mins and then power it on , then observe the wireless light.

There is also a possibly that the wireless light is just dim. You can check your wireless computer if they are getting a signal from your router. If they are getting a signal, that means the wireless light is not properly light up.

Please give me an update to your concern. So i further assists you
