Question about Linksys WRT120N Router

1 Answer

I have a Cisco WRT120N. The wireless internet access goes away when I turn of my laptop. The only way to reset it is to pull the power cord, wait 10 seconds or so and plug it back in. Can this be fixed? I have already down loaded the firmware update.

If the firmware is already updated and you reset and reconfigure the router then the same issue occurs then it is time for you to return it or change the model of your router.

To connect to your wireless router. the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops-computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops-desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL

What is the default username and password for a Linksys/Cisco Wireless -N Home Router to access web-based setup


Connect to http://192.168.1.1/
The default password is "admin". No username required. If you don't remember the correct password and you don't want to use some brute-force cracking software the only option is to reset the router pressing reset for 30 seconds. After that everything should be back to factory defaults including the default password.

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.

Cannot connect to Wireless with my Linksys WRT120N Router.


If you have 2 devices not be able to connect to it suddenly, then it is probably the router that changed, as opposed to it being the 2 devices changing at the same time. Sometimes wireless routers just go bad like that.Try a factory reset, and then set the appropriate settings back to where you need them. If that doesn't help, you likely need a new one.

The first thing you should do is a proper 'powercycle' for all of your internet equipment.

To do this:

1) Unplug the power to your modem and your router, and power off your computer.
2) Wait a full minute.
3) Plug the power back in to JUST the modem.
4) Wait some more - for the modem to fully connect to your ISP, and the lights to indicate. If you're not sure, just wait about 2-3 minutes.
5) Plug the power back into the router.
6) Wait another minute or two for the router to finish connecting.
7) Then turn the computer back on.

You can bypass the computer turning on and off if you can repair your wireless connection.

If this doesn't work, there is a pinhole sized reset button on the router itself that you will need a toothpick or somesuch to press - press and hold the button for 5 seconds, and then try the steps above again. If you do this, the network id and password will be reset to the default, just like it was when you bought it.

Have you tried the laptop on another wireless network? It should release and renew it automatically when you reboot the laptop without having to reset the router. And it sounds like the router itself is glitzed. But i would try using the laptop wireless on another router somewhere and also try connecting some other wireless device to the router to analyze the problem. You could also try setting the laptop's ip to a fixed ip number instead of obtain automatically (it must be in the same range as the router - first three numbers needs to be same as the router's) and see if it's the dhcp that is the problem.

A few years ago there were a lot of glitzy linksys routers ...
