    Hello Dikla, a little more detail might be helpful. This WRT300N is connected on the access side to a modem which is connected to our internet provider

    On the the internal side, we have two RJ-45 (LAN) cables connected to the router; these go two two 26 port switches that connect our 30 employees' computers. That part works fine.

    It is just the wireless portion of the router that doesn't work. It simply does not broadcast a wireless signal. This is a Linksys router problem, I think. It doesn't have anything to do with what lines are coming in or out of it.

Hi Good Day,

1) Check if your router have the capability to broadcast b/g/n signal.

2) you try replacing your son's desktop wireless card compatible with your router.

3) you can call your ISP and request to change the router that can broadcast b/g/n signal.


God Bless.

My WRT300N seems to have trouble with wireless connections lately. The wireless indicator is a green light, blinking a bit from time to time. Most of the time the router just won't be detected, however...


I suppose you have not suppressed SSID broadcast? Sometimes, interference from neighbouring wireless devices such as Coreless Phone, unshielded powerful speakers etc., may cause interference. Try to keep any other wireless or magnetic device at least 5 - 6 feet away from router.

In the router admin panel, check if you have an option to change the WiFi Channel. usually channel 6 is quite crowded ... try some other channel and see if it is stable. If your router has "Auto" Channel option enabled, please change it to "Fixed" and try.

I lost the cd to install my wireless router. I also do not know how to hook it up to my modem


You can get the install program from Linksys http://www.linksysbycisco.com/APAC/en/support/WRT300N/download

There are a bunch of settings so I have included the highlights of what you want to address:

Wireless Router


It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, but be sure to be ready to set the items listed below.


Things to set:


Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to SAVE EVERY page, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes.

1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.

2. Set a recognizable system ID.

3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.

a. Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or cell #. Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.

4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.

I have a clearwire modem. I have to locate it 80 ft from my two home desktops and laptop. i need to know how to best do this. i have an e2000 router that i was hoping to use a wre54g range extender...


The Linksys E2000 router is N series router and the WRE54G is G range expander.
WRE54G is only computer with the WRT54G and WRT54GS routers.
You have E2000 router. I believe that router is capable of broadcasting the wireless signal upto 100 fts.
As Linksys says that router is capable of signal up 200 - 300 fts, but it is not.
You can try changing the wireless channel on the router to increase the signal.
Open the setup page of the router.
Go to wireless tab and change the configuration view to manual.
Try changing the channel to 11, 9, 6 ,1. See if that works.

My Linksys wrt300n wireless N router is slow


You have WRT300N router. If it is very old model then upgrade the firmware of the router. and try changing the wireless channel on the router.
Firmware is the software of the router.
Download the latest firmware of the router. Go to the manufacturer's web site and download the firmware of the router.
Open the set up page of the router and upgrade the firmware of the router. Once you upgrade the firmware of the router, reset the router.
On the router you will find a small reset button, hold it down for 30 seconds. release it. wait for 1 minute. Now unplug the power to the router and plug it back in.
Now you will need to reconfigure the router according to the Internet service provider.

Unplugged my router. I plugged it back in and it was no longer broadcasting signal. Wireless light is not lit. Tried unplugging again and did a hard reset and is still not showing up on my connections even...


Please try opening the setup page of the router from web browser http://192.168.1.1 and username is blank and password is admin then go to wireless settings and there you will find option to turn the wireless on once the wireless is ON on that page save the settings and then close that page, switch off and switch on the router the wireless light should come on.
Also even after that if you are not able to get wireless light on try changing the wireless channel used, try using channel 1, 9 and 11 as they are interference free

Please let me know if this will help

WRT300N wont connect wireless


Intermittent Connectivity:
NOTE: Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).
This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the Linksys router.
Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:
  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the Linksys router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.
Reducing Wireless Interference
If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors’), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router’s channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.
Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.

Placement of the router: Linksys suggests that you place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor and high up in the room.
  • Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.
Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Linksys suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.
To change the router’s SSID or the wireless network’s name, click here.
To change the router’s channel, click here.
To enable the wireless security on the router, click here.
NOTE: If the wireless connection remains unstable after performing the steps above, upgrade the router’s firmware. For instructions, click here

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
