Question about Linksys WRT300N Wireless Router

1 Answer

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 sometimes it's there after performing a reset. I can access the router admin panel and I've already updated the firmware to the latest version.

    No longer any help needed. The router just seemed to be broken and we already purchased a new one which is working fine!

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.

Note that incoming traffic will cause the WAN (or Internet) light to blink even if it is 'probe' traffic trying to break in to your network. Such traffic is to be expected and is the reason you have firewall functionality in your gateway router.

On the inside, there is a bit of traffic on any LAN when the computers are turned on. Messages generated by the router itself are used to find computers and printers for a lot of different legitimate reasons.

You need to try hard reset of your router. Please follow the steps:

1. Power on the router.
2. Push and hold the reset button for 10 seconds (watch whether the power light blinks or not)
3. Turn off the router for 10 seconds and switch it on.
4.Once the power light is steady then perform the steps 1-3 for 2 more times.
5.If the wireless light still shows off, then kindly get in touch with the Linksys technical support centre.

How many lights should be on my westell model327w?

The Westell has several lights on the front that have various meanings

Power = When lit, this light indicates there's power to the router. It should be solid green.

Ethernet = When lit, this light indicates that the modem is communicating with your computer. This will be on only if you're using the Ethernet cable to connect the modem to your computer

Wireless = When lit, this light indicates that the wireless function of the Actiontec is working. This will only be lit if you're using the wireless function.

DSL = When lit, this light indicates the modem is speaking to the central office (phone company). When working, the light should be solid green.

Internet = When blinking, this light indicates that you're receiving information i.e., you're able to browse from site to site. This light will be blinking as you're receiving information.

Lost power on my WRT300N router. Power came back and now the power light is weak and all 4 port lights are on.

I had the exact same indications after a utility power spike.
Quite by accident, I discovered that the power supply to the WRT300N when fully seated into the router causes the lights (and the router!) to malfunction in this manner.
I pulled the power supply connection out gradually and the power light began to flash. Pulling the power supply even farther out eventually caused the power light to shine solid.
I don't know if this is a random manufacturer problem with just my WRT300N (V1.1) or if others may have a similar defect, but it's certainly worth a try!
Good Luck!

WRT300N dosnt connect

if your connection (isp) is CABLE you will need to clone the mac of the main computer.

For cable connection verify what computer can go online with your modem, once you know the main pc connect it to port one, access the routers setup page by typing then locate MAC ADDRESS CLONE in line with basic setup. enable it click the macclone button then save settings.
connect your modem to the internet port on the router, do a power cycle on the modem and router.
then check the status tab on the linksys setup page if you have numbers on the dns it should be online.
