A blinking power light indicates it is/has failed the self test and needs repair. Before you replace it, you can try and do a factory reset (you'll have to go back in and reset all of your settings after you do this - if it works). To do a factory reset, press and hold the reset button on the back (with power applied) for 20 seconds. If this does not get your router working, you'll need to replace the router as a new router will probably cost less than repairing this one (unless it is still under warranty).

Linksys router not recognize internet


Make sure your router's WAN port is set to dynamic IP. If the light on the front doesn't glow/blink for the WAN port, try a different cable. If a different cable doesn't work it's probably toast. :( This problem appears to be directly linked to the relationship between the WAN port and the modem. Given that the devices can connect to the router, but not internet, it has to be the WAN. Sometimes if the modem goes out it will send too much voltage through to the router and fry the WAN. Had that happen to my parents router. If the above doesn't "fix ya" then try a different router.

Worst case, you might have to put a wireless card in your PC and bridge the modem (wired connection) to the wireless card and broadcast for your wireless devices. At least until you get a new router.

My linksys router WRT120N is having power light stable but no other lights are neither blinking nor stable!!! need your help


At power up the device runs a self test, it take a minute or so. What is it connected to, what is sending the signal, a cable modem, DSL, etc.? If you have cables runing from the Cable modem or whatever, to the linksys, try another cable, OR, reboot the cable modem, unplug, remove battery, if applicable, remove power from the WRT120N, Insert battery into the modem, plug in, wait for the self test, plug in the Linksys, wait for self test. Connect a ethernet cable from the linksys to the computer. Does it connect? Try to connect wirelessly, Does it connect? Is the Linksys secured with a passcode? If you push the reset button , and hold for a minute, in the rear of the device, it will reset the Linksys to default settings. Try to connect. Did the Linksys work at one time? Did you set it up? Is it on a surge protector? Have you had any Electrical storms? Surges? It may be bad, hard to say until you verify all the steps. Who is your internet provider? Have you verified that they are sending a signal? Comcast will verify ,by phone, that the signal is good and run check on the cable modem.

Hi,

Normally on the back of the routers there is a small reset button you can press and hold for 15 seconds. This will reset the unit.

Linksys has stopped working - no connectivity. I directly connected the modem to computer and it works fine. Power light on Linksys is green but is blinking and does not go to steady green.


You can try to follow the steps from this link to fix the blinking power light of your router, because a blinking power light is a sign of something is bad on the router. But if after doing the steps and still a blinking power the router is already bad and needs replacement.

The send light blinks alot


Well if it works perfect and has no problems then no you don't need a new modem. if it is not doing so well and is messing up a lot then yes i would look into one, Other then that sounds normal for a router or ethernet to be active or none active.

You do got random programs on your pc that do connect to internet while not around or not even using or browsen the net.
