Question about Linksys Wireless-N WRT150N Router

WRT150N looses wireless connectivity

Hooked up a wireless router that will become unavailable to all computers. All machines connected via ethernet work fine. If I reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure router connectivity returns as normal. Later wireless connections disappear, seemingly without reason. Talked to linksys tech support they did two things: 1st- download "easy connect software". Then "I can provide no further help" with your computer. <----what's up with this? I don't believe there is anything wrong with my computers or their wireless NIC's. Plugging the original linksys router 802.11b works like a champ but too slow for what I'm doing. Any suggestions would be great! TIA Scrantz i install my linksys wireless router,but the lights number two which is ethernet its off..i tried everything i culd what should i do?

Filasian, there is a strong possibility that the switch part of your router is defective because there is no light on number 2 even if there is a computer plugged into it, this can be the factor that affects the wireless operation of the unit.

the best move you may do at this point is to contact Linksys to perform a firmware flash on your router or discuss the warranty of the unit.

their toll free number is 1-800-326-7114

or refer to the site below to to see the contacts for linksys.

Linksys- Contact Us.

good luck
