My unit indicates a system error due to amber LED was lit whenever I press the power button. I tried to press the remind button in the operator panel but no LED will lit to indicate what maybe the problem....


Interesting, sound like a failure of the button because most system either work with a greeg lit up led or fail with an amber or orange lit or flashing.
In this instance the amber could mean something has gone bad but the fact you can hold the button and have it boot up is strange.

Does the led turn green after holding the button for a while to let the machine boot?

regards,
mike

Lost power on my WRT300N router. Power came back and now the power light is weak and all 4 port lights are on.


I had the exact same indications after a utility power spike.
Quite by accident, I discovered that the power supply to the WRT300N when fully seated into the router causes the lights (and the router!) to malfunction in this manner.
I pulled the power supply connection out gradually and the power light began to flash. Pulling the power supply even farther out eventually caused the power light to shine solid.
I don't know if this is a random manufacturer problem with just my WRT300N (V1.1) or if others may have a similar defect, but it's certainly worth a try!
Good Luck!

Ethernet lights 1-4 are lit, wireless light out


wireless light will be ON only if you have connected any wireless devices to your network... security light will be ON only if you enabled password to connect to your wireless network.... if you have changed any settings in the router recently, then delete the saved list of networks in the computer.... then search for wireless networks in range and connect to your network....

The power light is very dim and all 4 ethernet port lights are on and internet light is on too, but we are not getting any connection


If hard resetting it does not let the power light lit fully , then it already a hardware problem inside your router , no getting enough power. Bu dont worry it may just be too that the Power light led is just not lighting up properly.

Normal sequence is the power led should blink 5 times then shutoff when power is pressed. If the led stays lit the DM is suspect. You will need to have the DM trouble shooted to determine whats preventing normal boot sequence from completeing. If you need further assistance. please let me know.
