To do a hard reset, hold for about 5 seconds (don?t hold too long) and then release. (Or, release when M1 and M2 flash at the same time.) The M1 amber light flashing means that the system is active. Go to your routers settings by typing and make sure that enable DHCP is showing and that the network adapter cards in your pc's are set to obtain an ip address automatically, to do this start>control panel>network connections, then on your network adapter ensure it says enabled, if so right click on it and select properties, go to TCP/IP line and click properties and make sure obtain ip address automatically is ticked, ok it and restart pc and see if you get a connection.

    the router will get hot but excessive heat can cause restarts and crashes.

    Just check that the modem is not the problem, but if it persists then i would suggest buying a modem router instaed of two seperate units

N600 error 651. My n600 is hardwired to my desktop. my wireless internet connections work fine. The desktop connects to the router no problem, but will not connect to internet. I used the pc yesterday...

If the wireless connects to the internet then the router is fine. Look at re setting the connection on the PC. You might want to check for an update on the driver for your network interface card first.

Can't find wireless network

The router probably defaulted back to its factory settings. Use your manual and reset your router back up. It may be as simple as renaming your router.

Wireless Router suddenly stopped working.

Try resetting the Linksys back to the factory defaults and configure it again.
Power up the router and press the pinhole RESET button on the back of the router for 30 sec
Connect a LAN cable to the wireless router and open a browser and enter to router's configuration IP address and configure the wireless settings, remove the LAN cable when configuration is completed.
You need to configure then wireless card in the computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings.

Have D-link 704 router, can I connect the DI-524 to it also to add wireless?

Hi, I have not tried it myself with DLink but with LinkSys, yes it will work. It may take a little configuration tinkering but should work. However a few notes: 1. You should only have 1 DHCP server (both have this feature); 2. You can not have 2 identical IP address; 3. I suggest you make the 524 as the gateway and the 704 as a slave; 4. In effect you will connect 1 of the LAN port of the 524 to the WAN input of the 704; 5. You have to copy the WAN settings of the 704 to the WAN settings of the 524; 6. Or if you want to retain the 704 as the gateway, disable the identical features in the 524. I suggest you treat the 524 as a client of the 704. Hope this gives you some idea and work out for you as it did with my LinkSys. Goodluck and kind regards.
