Try doing a power drain: Disconnect power cable from the router and also the network cables and then connect all the cables back after 2 minutes.

Reset: There is a reset switch available in the pannel along side to the network cable and power cable, use a pointed object like a small pin / screw driver to pre and hold it for 5 - 10 seconds to reset the router

Caution: Reseting the router with the reset switch will remove all settings from the router including the security settings and will retrun the settings to factory settings and we have to setup the router once again.

My Amazon fire stick is no longer working saying I need to press WPS button on router. My router doesn't have one. It's worked fine for 2 years. What can I do now?

You could try turning your router off for a few minutes and then back on again - that seems to cure most problems.

Unplugging the Firestick and starting fresh might also work. If nothing good happens and the router seems to be working ok with other computers and stuff then suspect a problem with the Firestick. Lots of modern stuff is designed to stop working soon after the warranty expires.

My router does not seem to be working right; the power light is flashing very quickly and the signal is not being transmitted. how do i get my router to work again?

Press the reset button on the router. Hold it down for 30 seconds. release the reset button. Wait for 1 minute. unplug the power cable to the router and plug it back in.
Wait for 1 minute and check if the power light is Solid on the router.
If the power light on the router is flashing then the router is not working. Try to reset the router again. To press the reset button on the router use a paper clip or ball point pen.
If the power light is still flashing then try to reset the router again. If still the same thing then you will need to new router.

If the power light is sold then you can try to reconfigure the router.

Can no longer pick up router signal

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.

Linksys router befsr41 model

Since you do not know what has been changed. I would suggest you to reset everything.

I am not sure about your particular model.
But generally, Linksys routers have a small hole called "reset". It should be at the back of your router.

Use a pin, press the reset for few seconds (~30).
Now, everthing is reset.
You the setup CD which came with your router and set it up again from fresh.

hope it works :)

Linksys WRT54GX2 constantly disconnects

I just upgraded from firmware version 1.01.14 to 1.01.22 and I have the same problem, the router just keeps resetting itself. I think the solution is to go back to the old firmware, but I haven't been able to find a copy yet, Once I find firmware version 1.01.14 for the WRT54GX2 router. I will let you know if this is the solution... :)

Di-624 stopped working

Hi sailaway!
. Make sure the router is going from the modem, to the port marked WAN, on the 624. You can test the cable, by plugging it directly into you computer, from the modem, if you want to. Disconnect the power from your modem, your router, and turn off your computer Wait 1 min. Turn on the Router, wait three full min's. Power up the 624, and wait one min. Power up the PC. Reason for the long wait on the modem is that it has to get data from the internet, to give to the router. If that don't hwlp, try changing the cable from the PC to the router, to a different port. If all that don't work, try resetting the router by gentley pressing a straightened out paperclip into the reset hole in the back. Hold it for 30 sec. If that fail resetting it, try holding it in while you unplug the 624 and plug it back in. If it resets, go thru the first steps to set it up again. If all that fails, your 624 may be bad. Had that happen to me. The steps I listed brought it back to life for about 2 months, and it died completely. Good Luck!
