How I revived my dead Asus RT-N16 routerq


My trusty old Asus RT-N16 router suddenly died. I hoping it was just the power transformer... nope.
So I opened it up to see if it was something obvious. Yup! A cheap chinese capacitor had the tell tale bulge. If you look closely in the pic you can kinda see that the top of capacitor is bulging outwards. So, I picked up a replacement 680u capacitor (they didn't have a 16V so I used a 35V) for $1... and replaced the old one.
Voila... back to life again!

Plug a cat5 cable from your wifi router to your computer,
then push start (on windows) then run
then type cmd
push enter
a black box will now appear on your screen
type ipconfig
a list of connected ip addresses will show
open your internet browser and copy and past each one in until you get a settings screen
e.g. on a dlink you'll get a dlink settings screen
go through the prompts to set up a password
it may ask you for a password. e.g username:admin password:
leave the password as either 0000 or leave it blank
if neither if these passwords work you can hold down the reset button on your wireless router and try again

If you hit full screen on the youtube video and its not full screen, then it sounds like your monitor resolution is to low.

Rt click on a place on your screen and pick screen resolution, then pick resolution and increase it.

The first number is width, so say it's on 800x600 then go 1024x768

John, most monitors made have no service guide.
all are different, every brand and every model
some of this thin devices, like this are snap apart
and some are glued (using glue not unlike "stickynotes"
they do that also to make it water proof (limited) so that makes it super hard to repair, just like many notepads,
or both. they are all very tricky to work on, (that is the price for thin)
the users manual at asus has no facts here.
nor do they list a service manual on it. (sad)
google for it or youtube it is the only way.

ill looked on youtube, see nada
buy dead one on ebay,learn to take the dead one apart first
then work on yours.
other than that, call ASUS, ask for service manual
or google all week,

ok my PC in south american beach house.
has no @ key
nor do any of their internet cafe's
spanish keyboard, has non.

so we use the alt 64 trick
see next post for that.
but the kboard needs a right side keypad to do that
if not ouch get one, usb and plug it in.'

the top row of numbers on a keyboard can not
do the 6 4 strokes, only a working keypad right side.

I can not see you PC. nor country sold. so can not be more accurate.
this trick is from IBM, the first PCs did this too.
Thanks to IBM. (and the complex scan coded keyboard)

Wait until the installer prompts you. The generic mouse driver in bios is not good for the mouse you are using.

I just had a similar problem with the same Asus model. It drained the battery yesterday and today wouldn't start even after charging for 15min (the middle light was on so it was charging). The light bulb light was on though even when it wasn't charging. Tried pressing the button several times. Didn't help. Tried holding it for several seconds. Didn't help. But when I hold the button for around 30sec the light bulb turned off. And then another press and it turned on as normal. So the laptop must have been hibernated/sleeping. But it did give me a heart attack, especially when I realised that I will have to take it to Currys for repair where their very unknowledgable KnowHow don't know how to fix anything (send a laptop three times and still didn't fix the problem, they only know how to install software updates).

Via a cable, with an SD card, you could also email a copy to yourself if you set up email on your android tablet. There are many ways to do it.

check the power management options, UNDER settings and or control panel - you will be able to see the time like minutes and secs of the options to sleep and wake up

I think it is running a test mode. Some kind of button pressing combination might free it from this.
It might go away if you can plug it into a vga source (pc, laptop) and hopefully change it from there.
Good luck.

Try reseatting the DVD/CD drive also reinstall the DVD/CD driver.
If this does not fix the problem then most likely the DVD/CD drive is faulty and then needs to be replaced.
