Hi...I just purchased a Linksys WRT55AG router, and i've gone through the whole set-up process, which seemed pretty basic, but nothing is happening. Nothing is lit on the router, not the power light...nothing. I thought that the problem might be in the power cord or outlet, but i tested both and both are working properly. Is this a faulty router?? I'm so frustrated!
1. The wireless router will fail in the transmit mode on G but my VoIP connection (vonage) plugged into one of the routers ports works.
2. Vonage device loses connection...I pull the power cord, wait 30 seconds and plug power cord back in...Looking at the wireless router WRT55AG as the Vonage Device (Cisco ATA 186) is booting up it causes the WRT55AG to continuously reboot until I unplug the Vonage Device Power or unplug the ether net cable to the router..Both the WRT55AG and the Cisco ATA 186 have been flashed with current firmware versions in the past month which was thought to cure the problem but it continues...Vonage Support pointing fingers at the Wireless Router as the problem.....Frustrating on both issues...Anyone have a similar problem or fix...

Try to upgrade the firmware of the router. Is there any computer connected to the router with the cable. If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router. Download the firmware of the router from the manufacturer's website. enter the model number. select proper version number and download the firmware of the router. Once you download the firmware, you will need to open the router set up and upgrade the firmware of the router. After upgrading the firmware, it is recommended that you reset and reconfigure the router. Click Here for more information about router and networking
you need to reset the whole system for you to be able to reset the password,there is a button at the back of it where you can insert a pen to reset it,you can also try to contact tech support for linksys
Router setup If you are using the cd that comes with the router, that is the problem. You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed. then: Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem. Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPPOe.
Using your web browser go to URL address http://192.168.1.1. You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password “admin”, in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to “admin” on some of the newer Linksys router models).
You have reset your router.SO you will have to configure it again to get the internet working.To do that please download the user manual from the below link and follow the steps mentioned to setup the internet.Everything is explained in detail with the pics:
If you plug in computers on the ethernet ports and they dont light up at all but you are sure that the cables that you are using works as well as the ethernet port on your computer that means that the unit is already defective. You can contact 8003267114 for replacement if its under warranty
You might want to see if it is a cordless phone if it is interfering with the router? If they are at the same frequencies they can interfere with each causing each other not to work.. I have had that happen to my Linksys phone and Router
Under the tab 'wireless' find the strint that says 'Channels', and change to another one (anyone) and then give it a day to see if you lose connection, if you do, go back and change it again. Try downloading the latest drivers and software. The WRT55AG and WRT54AG are known to drop signals. These routers are like cell phones, you have to find a good spot for them.
as long as you have connected your powered up modem to the rear port of the router and set it up firstly through the RJ45 cable and it is plugged in, then the power light should be on, if no power light then nothing is going to set up, so as long as you know you have followed the instructions, it must be a faulty unit, but go through everything again, as you may have missed something; as we all do at times.
