Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)

1 Answer

No power light, cannot connect

I've gone through the pattern of connecting the modem & router, but when I plug in the router's power cord there is no power light. The other port lights are visible. I even tried plugging it in to another socket and no light. My internet works when I by pass the router and just use the modem.

Any thoughts on how to get the router to work?

Thanks,

Karen

    Okay its seems like its the wireless connection that you were able to check. How about if the computer is direclty (wired) connected to the router, what does it say for the LAN connection or local area connection. Does it still say connected or does it say cable unplugged?

How do you set the router up!!! no diagram to hook up to desktop


How you connect it depends on how you plan to use it. Let me explain:

Some people have a dsl line (high speed internet connection) and their modem from their internet provider only has room for one computer cable to connect and use the internet. If the customer has more then one desktop computer they want to connect to the internet, they will need to buy a router. A router provides multiple ports for several computers to connect to the internet at the same time.

If you have a dsl modem already and bought a router to add additional computers to your network - then follow the instructions below to set it up:

Connect your phone cord from the wall into the dsl modem. Plug in the power cable from the dsl modem to the wall and turn it on. Connect an ethernet cable to the dsl modem (ethernet cables are the ones that look like a regular telephone cord but the ends are a little larger) and connect the other end to your router. Make sure you plug this cable into the port marked "ethernet" on your router. There is only one port for your internet connection line coming into the router, the rest of the ports are for adding computers only. Some routers say the word "ethernet" near the port for the internet connection. Others have a picture near or or brackets around it to show that it is different then the others. Plug in the power cord to your router and turn it on. Make sure you turn on your modem first and let it warm up before connecting your router. Modem power on first, then router power on - always.

Now connect an ethernet cable to your router and connect the other end to the pc you wish to use on the internet. Do not turn on your pc until the ethernet cord is attached. Your dsl modem has to be powered up first, followed by your router and then your pc. All in that order.

Your computer should automatically sense the internet connection upon start up. You can verify that your connection is installed correctly and that your pc is sensing it by looking at the bottom right side of your screen near the clock area. You should see a picture of a computer monitor that represents your internet connection status. Sometimes they glow green when they are healthy. Sometimes they show a red X on top of them if they are disconnected from the internet. If you can't find the Icon for your internet connection on the bottom right side of your screen, unplug the ethernet cable from the back of your pc - while watching the bottom right side area and plug it back in again. Watch for a change to locate the icon. Sometimes there is a downward pointing arrow near the clock which needs to be clicked on to open up the area and view the icons.

Thats all! One line from the modem to the router - another line from the router to the pc - and the internet should be up and running fine.

If you bought a router combination modem - then its the same as above - just without a separate dsl modem. (i.e. Connect the power cable from the router/modem to the wall. Connect the ethernet cable to the port marked "ethernet" for your internet connecton and connect the other end of the cord to your pc. Then turn your pc on. Router/modem power on first and pc power on second in that order)

All the lights on your modem should be green and steady - except for the one marked internet or connection which is usually flashing and moving. If you have any red or yellow lights then you need to troubleshoot and correct the problem before your internet connection will work.

Unable to connect to internet through Linksys WRT160N router. Can unplug it and internet is fine. Tried power cycling the modem and router. Linksys comes up with all lights flashing and will not...


If I understand your problem correctly, you are able to connect to the Internet when you hook the computer directly to the modem, but not when the router is connected to the modem.
If this is the case, then you need to do a power drain on the modem. Power cycling the modem is not enough to clear the NVRAM of the MAC address of your computer. You have to unplug the power cord of the modem for 15 to 20 minutes in order for the NVRAM to reset and allow the modem to recognize the MAC address of the router.
After the modem has been unplugged for 15 to 20 minutes, disconnect the power cable from the router and then connect router to the modem using the Ethernet cable.
Next with the router power cord still disconnected, plug in the power cord of the modem and allow the modem to sync to the network.
Once the modem is finished with its start-up, plug-in the power cord of the router and let it sync to the network.
After the modem has completed its start-up, it should now be connected to the internet.
Good Luck

Why when I connect my router to electricity and the modem, have all the light on? How can I fix that? Is suppose that when I connect my router to the modem start functioning or I need a CD or program to...


HI Lara,

I got your issue , When you connect the modem-router-electricity ---> you have mentioned that all the lights are ON.

Only the modem is connected to the router not your computer or other devices still all the lights are on then, its obvious the router has gone bad. Try retting the router , Look on the rear end of the router you can find a Pin hole which is the reset button of your router , take a pin or a paper clip and hold the reset for 10sec and then power cycle the router (unplug the power cable and plug it in within 10sec).

If still all the lights are on then I'm sure the router is faulty.

Good Luck!

Thanks & Regards,
Prema.

Cant connect!


- Try to power cycle the Motorola modem and the router for 5 minutes.
- After 5, turn On first the modem, make sure all the lights of the modem are stable before plug in the router.
- If this procedure doesn't work then I suggest that you might need to update the firmware of your router.

Let me verify your network configuration with you. You have your modem connected to the WAN/Internet port of your router via an ethernet cable and then your PC connected to your router via another ethernet cable, correct?

If this is your setup, then try this:
  1. Unplug the power cord from the modem & router
  2. Plug the power cord into the modem and wait for it to boot up (most modems have an "Internet/Connection" light to indicate they are connected to the ISP)
  3. Plug in the power to the router, wait for it to complete the bootup process (usually when the lights stop flashing it's done), and see what happens.
