Better to reset the router by pressing the reset button for 30 seconds and then run again the setup CD of the router to reconfigure it back so you will know all the settings on it....

WHAT LIGHTS ON LINKSYS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE BLINKING


Note that incoming traffic will cause the WAN (or Internet) light to blink even if it is 'probe' traffic trying to break in to your network. Such traffic is to be expected and is the reason you have firewall functionality in your gateway router.

On the inside, there is a bit of traffic on any LAN when the computers are turned on. Messages generated by the router itself are used to find computers and printers for a lot of different legitimate reasons.

I am trying to set up my wireless router using the cd and following the sequence of powering up the modem, the computer and then the router.. when i connect my router to my modem and computer and power up...


Make sure you follow the instructions on the cd to a "T", do not do anything with hooking up cables until the cd tells you to. I think you may have jumped ahead and the computer and all do not recognize
each other.

Im just setting up my 2wire 2701 it works for a few secounds then stops the dsl light is flashing red. Any thoughts?


Hey!

The way I see it, there are 2 options:
1) There's a problem with your phisical internet connection - check the modem configuration and\or contact your ISP so they'll check that everything is configured well on their side.
2) Your router is failing... have it replaced!

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Best regards,
Pelu.

No wireless connection for laptop. Linksys router - model #wrt160n v2


you can run a direct line to that router and go to the cisco web site and get the information you need to run that router. its a pdf format and is 2.56 Meg. Try this

SecureEasySetup (Orange/White) The Cisco logo is the Router's SecureEasySetup button. It

lights up and will stay orange when the Router is powered on. The color orange indicates that

the Router is not using the SecureEasySetup feature, while the color white indicates that the

Router is using the SecureEasySetup feature. When the Router enters SecureEasySetup

mode, the Cisco logo will turn white and start flashing. After the Router has generated

the SSID and WPA Personal key, the Cisco logo will stop flashing and stay white.

To clear the SSID and WPA Personal key, press and hold down the Cisco logo for five seconds.

The Cisco logo will flash slowly as the Router resets itself. The Cisco logo will turn orange to

indicate a successful reset.NOTE: SecureEasySetup is a feature that makes

it easy to set up your wireless network. If you have SecureEasySetup devices, run the Router's

Setup Wizard CD-ROM and follow the onscreen instructions to use SecureEasySetup.

Power (Green) The Power LED lights up and will stay on while the Router is powered

on. When the Router goes through its selfdiagnostic mode during every boot-up, this

LED will flash. When the diagnostic is complete, the LED will be solidly lit.

DMZ (Green) The DMZ LED indicates when the DMZ function is being used. This LED will

remain lit as long as DMZ is enabled. WLAN (Green) The WLAN LED lights up when

the wireless feature is enabled. If the LED is flashing, the Router is actively sending or

receiving data over the network. 1, 2, 3, 4 (Green) These numbered LEDs, corresponding with the numbered ports on the Router's back panel, serve two purposes. If the LED is continuously lit, the Router is successfully connected to a device through that port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over that port.

Internet (Green) The Internet LED lights up when there is a connection made through the

Internet port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over the Internet port.

Good luck

WTF! internet used to work perfectly and now my wireless router is on the fritz and the status light keeps flashing! i have to hook my comp up to the wall to write this message


If the status led light keeps flashing there is a problem on your ISP side. Router is trying to establish connection with internet. Please check led light status on your modem (not router). Also please try to change position of your router as it might be in a "dead spot". For more info about your router please visit: http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=6

Linksys WRT160 router doesn't work


Wi-Fi Protected Setup Button
If you have client devices, such as wireless adapters, that
support Wi-Fi Protected Setup, then you can
use Wi-Fi Protected Setup to automatically
configure wireless security for your wireless
network(s).

To use Wi-Fi Protected Setup, run the Setup
Wizard, or refer to the “Wireless > Basic Wireless
Settings” section of “Chapter 3: Advanced
Configuration".

Wi-Fi Protected Setup LED (Blue/Amber) It
lights up blue when wireless security is
enabled. The LED flashes blue for two
minutes during Wi-Fi Protected Setup.
The LED lights up amber if there is an error
during the Wi‑Fi Protected Setup process. Make
sure the client device supports Wi‑Fi Protected
Setup. Wait until the LED is off, and then try again.
The LED flashes amber when a Wi‑Fi Protected
Setup session is active, and a second session
begins. The Router supports one session at a
time. Wait until the LED is off before starting the
next Wi-Fi Protected Setup session.

How can i turn the wireless on? the led for wireless is off?i cant find any switch except for the reset.


The wireless part of a router (AP = Access Point) is normally "switched" on or off by way of a setting in the routers configuration - check your owners manual on how to do this. There is no physical switch as such.

Also, the wireless light only lights when a wireless device has established a wireless connection to the AP. Even though the AP maybe enabled and working, until a wireless device connects, the light remains unlit.

I dont know this exact model of router so cant give specifics on how to set it up, but hopefully if you can find your manual, this gives you a starting point.

You can reset your Netgear router/wireless MR814 router to the factory settings from within the router manager. The reset procedure removes all user-configured settings and returns the router to the original factory settings.


For this reason, only reset the router if you encounter problems that can't be solved with other methods.


Step 1: Check that your Netgear router/wireless MR814 router is properly connected with your system or not. If it is OK, then press reset button on Netgear router for at least 10 seconds. The 'test' light should flash during this process.


Step 2: Now open browser and enter Netgear's IP address into the address bar. Generally, '192.168.0.1' is the Netgear router IP address but you can find specific IP address in Netgear router manual.


Step 3: Now enter your default username and password to log in to router.


Step 4: Click 'Erase' button under the 'Revert to Factory Default Settings'. This process will erase all your previous changes that have been made to the router and restore the configuration settings to factory setting. Don't interrupt the process until the process is finished.


Once the router's 'test' light has stopped blinking and the configuration page you are on has refreshed, the router has been reset.


Feel free to get instant online Netgear router support at http://www.vtechsquad.com/netgear-router-support/ to fix Netgear router/wireless router issues.

Wireless LED blinking, normal?


Same problem here - wireless light starts blinking and I get a network interruption. At that point, I have to walk across the house and downstairs to cycle the power on the router to get it working again. What a pain - and the manual doesn't even mention a blinking status for that light. I'm thinking about hooking the router up to a automated power switch (X12) so I can remotely cycle the power.
