Question about Linksys BEFSR41 Cable/DSL Router W/4 Port Switch, Retail Box (DSLSBEFSR41)
We had a series of power fluctuations that affected our WIFI router. The WAN lead ceased to light. I checked the cables first if its cable related. I was able to use them without fail using a different WIFI router. When I tried connecting my computer through the LAN interface, The lead lights lit up and functioned normally. I have a hunch that the power fluctuations messed up the RJ45 socket for WAN. Is there a way to solder a new socket or to bypass the WAN into one of the LAN sockets? Any solution is appreciated. Thanks
Try to update the firmware of the router first and hard reset it.
To hard reset it, press the reset button at the back of the rouetr for 30 secs then unplug the power for 30 secs and then plug it back in. Check if that fixes it.
