Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router
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).
