If your router LED's are on and no ethernet wires are connected it is most likely defective

You could try resetting the router by holding down the reset switch in the back for 20 seconds then if it could be just a bug in the firmare

or you could re-flash/update the firmware (with the help of a good friend how can do this)

Good luck

Emachines Will not detect ethernet cable


With the machine on and the cable connected on both ends (1 to computer and the other end to the Router or Modem that needs to be powered up) look where the cable plugs into your computer. Is there a green or orange light on. There may be two. Normally one that stays on steady is the CONNECT. This one is normally green color LED. When Data is being transmitted a second LED will be flickering showing data transfer. If you have no LED lights showing directly by the Ethernet cable, try another cable. Reminder: also make sure you have power on the router/ cable/dsl modem.
Hope this helps..

My linkys wrt54g wireless router won't work i have tried un plugging it and plugging it back in what else can i try? The light will blink like its searching then it just stays on solid orange.


Hi.

Try to unplug power on both modem and router. Then plug your modem first and wait about 1 minute to make sure it finds a new ip address.

After that, plug your router and wait 2 minutes and try again.

You will probably have to restart your computer if it doesn't work the first time you try.

Router/power light constantly flashing cannot make any connection to computer


try to reset the router. On the router you will find the reset button. press it and hold it down for 30 seconds. release the reset after 30 seconds. wait for 1 minute. unplug the power and plug it back in. wait for 1 minute and check if the power light stays solid.
If not then try to reset the router again.
check if the power light stays solid.
check the IP address on the computer. If you are getting a valid IP address then try to open the set up page of the router.
If you are not getting the valid IP address and power light is not solid then I think you will need a new router.

We have just tried to set up a belkin N wireless router and the modem red light stays flashing. Therefore , we have not been able to connect with the wireless


If you follow these steps it should clear up your issue.

  1. Unplug power from your modem, router and computer (turn off computer). Check to make sure your modem does not have a back up battery in it.
  2. Plug the coax (cable) or phone line (dsl) into your modem
  3. Plug an ethernet cable from your modem to the router. Make sure it is plugged into the "internet" port.
  4. Turn the modem on and wait 40 seconds for the lights to come on and the system to boot up fully.
  5. When it is up, plug the power into the router. Wait another 40 seconds to a minute for all the lights to come on and be green.
If this does not help please let me know and we can move further with your support. Routers can sometimes be very sensitive.

Good Luck,

Are you trying to install the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.

First reset the router for 30 seconds. unplug the power to the router. wait for 5 seconds. Plug it back in.

Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
Then you need to connect the computer to the router ad the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

You have a 5-port router. The 5th port can be used either as an "uplink" port (with a cross-over Ethernet cable) or as a "data" port (with a straight-though Ethernet cable).

You've not provided enough details to trouble-shoot the "staying online" problem, i.e., IP-addresses of each of the connected computers/printers, whether you're using CAT3 or CAT5 or CAT5E cables, whether you've tried different Ethernet cables, and whether the router is connected into a UPS that provides "smooth" power.

SMC2804WBR router: The lights are on but nobody's home.


Sounds like the router is about to die. I had the same issue with a wireless router a few years ago. It would broadcast but I would not be able to get onto the wireless no matter what I did but plugging straight into the modem and it worked just fine. If you've done a hard reset and it is still not connecting or staying connected, it is about time to replace the router.

hello!

there's no way to remove the software that you loaded on your router but you can try to revert it to the old software. what you can also do is you can try to reconfigure the settings of your router because chances are, the settings went back to its default after the upgrade

-- who is your internet service provider
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router

you may try this and see if this help solve your problem

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and test the Internet connection.

OK. First of of all, the only light that should stay solid on your router is the power light. All the others are activity lights. They show network traffic through the connections. Second, if you're going to power cycle the router it's a good idea to power cycle the modem as well. Just so you know, I know they sell and promote all kinds of wireless things for xbox 360 but it's best to run it with an ethernet cable. Better results. So, try this: Unplug your modem and router, wait about 60 seconds. When all the lights have come back on the modem (excluding the activity light ) plug in your router. See what happens and let me know.If this fixes your problem, please rate this as fixed. If it did not, then don't rate it yet. Just add a comment and I'll be glad to help you further. Thanks.
