The Power LED is flashing


If your router is showing this issues, you need to check if the power surge you are using is sustaining appropriate level of power to your router. You can try use a different power surge, a different phone socket or make sure that the power cable is properly connected.If in case this wont work, check if your router is still in warranty so you can ask the manufacturer for replacement of the device.Power light is the indicator if your router is faulty or not. Power light should always be stable green lights.

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

WRT54GC linksys wireless router- suddenly all lights are flashing constantly and it does not work


Reset the router for 30 second.
There is a reset button on the router. For WRT54GC the reset button might be at the bottom of the router. There is a flap that you need to turn around. You will see a small reset button. Press it and hold it down for 30 seconds.
release the button. wait for 1 minute. unplug the power to the router and plug it back in.
wait for 1 minute and see if poer light becomes solid.
If not then try to reset the router again.
if the power light is solid then it is in working condition.
Once you reset the router it will come back to the factory default settings.
You will need to reconfigure the router for Internet connection.
If the pwer light is not solid and keep on flashing then it is not in working condition.
If your router is in warranty period then contact the manufacturer and get it replaced.

The device is not working. When I conect the power, power led is off and wireless led is fixed green. Sometimes, when I reset the router, the power led turns orange, and the otrers ligths off.


This is a sign of a bad router already, so if its still under warranty you can go have this unit replace from Linksys , since this is already a hardware problem...

My Linksys WRT54GC suddenly stopped working. The router has no power light but the wireless and internet light are green.


Sounds like a PSU failure possibly.

If you can still get wired internet then its not dead. Its even possible the power LED is pooched if you can still use the wired connections.

When I connect the ethernet cable to my tower, I gave an orange light. What could be causing this to happen?


What Orange light are you refering to? You have an orange and green LED on the block of the Ethernet connecter, if the cable is plugged into the plug and the other end is terminated into another deive such as a modem,bridge,router or switch the orange light(led) should come on as that indicates a valdi link hence being called the link light, the green light(led) indicates data being received or transmitted. If orange flash with sparks(bad) from the plug it means there is power on the cable..very bad as this could be due to the ethernet card that is faulty or the device on the other end of the cable is faulty.
