Hi, My router suddenly stopped sending out wireless signals- the little 'antenna' icon goes blink-blink a couple of times and then goes off. I don't k now if the wired connections will work because I cannot test it. Please help me resolve this problem.

Reset your router, it would enable you to connect On the back of your router there is a little black reset button. Use a pen or paper clip and press down for 10 seconds. Make sure the lights on the router stop blinking for one second. Release the button and make sure to reset your wireless security and network ID. If that doesn't work just unplug your routers power cord. This is the easiest way to reset your internet connection without resetting your router to factory settings. If neither of those work, unplug the power cord of your modem. This will completely reset the internet connection without resetting the routers settings.
Does the wireless light still lit on the router? You can try changing the channel on the router (1 6 or 11) ans moving the antenna. If those things did not work upgrade the firmware of the router and reset to factory default. Do not forget to save the configuration file before you reset to factory default.
hey underwent the problem and i think there is no concern of the indicator lights they may be flashing or they may be solid as well . but the only thing that u should take care of is the powerlight it should not be blinking .
well if the wireless keeps on disconnecting at a regular period of time ....CHANGE THE BEACON LEVEL FROM 100 to 70(beacon means the signals propating time of the router )...
if it still doesn't work then u can surely call the customer care of ur routers company and they will provide u with the replacement of this router ....
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!
Same problem here - wireless light starts blinking and I get a network interruption. At that point, I have to walk across the house and downstairs to cycle the power on the router to get it working again. What a pain - and the manual doesn't even mention a blinking status for that light. I'm thinking about hooking the router up to a automated power switch (X12) so I can remotely cycle the power.
