Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G 2.4 GHz Power Light Not Illuminated?
May 17, 2008
My router was working fine until today. I figured it out when I tried to get on the internet and it wouldn't let me. I hooked up the ethernet directly from my modem to my computer and then my internet worked fine.
Ive recently tried to update the firmware and everything went as instructed, then the power and LAN light went out. Now I have the indicator lights for the computer and modem, but thats is. No internet or SSID broadcast. I cannot log into or ping the unit, and have tried the hard reset many times, with no effect.
My Wireless-G WRT54G router has a blinking power light and the startup software says "Unable to connect to the Router! Check that the Router has been connected to the computer, and that your Ethernet adapter is working." I tried uploading the firmware but I can't get to the router page to update. Is there a known problem or solution here or am I just going to have to find the router page?
I've seen related to flashing power lights on the router involve fixes via firmware upgrades off a PC.I'm on an iMac os 10.6.7. The WRT54 used to work as a wireless modem a couple of years ago. Tonight, it doesn't. power light blinks. Can't access any webpage interface for the thing. Reset, power down, computer restart, cable modem turn off don't change anything. Is there anything that can be done other than tossing the linksys? If that is the only option, are there wireless routers more suitable for a Mac?
So I recently upgraded from a WRT54GS to a WRT160N v2, all was well and good for about 3 days. Then I would lose my internet connection every 5 minutes or so, it would fix itself by the time I could open up command prompt and start pinging to pin point the problem. I decided I would update the firmware to see if that would fix the issue. Since doing that the power light has been blinking non stop. I've tried restoring it to factory defaults by holding the reset button for 30seconds, turning it off for 2 minutes and back on. That little blue light just keeps flashing. I can't even access the router setting page using 192.168.1.1. My OS is Windows xp x64 sp2, and I have DSL.
No download available and none available via Linksys Live Chat or FTP and having spent the best part of the week trying to find relevant firmware on other forums I decided to come here to get answers to the following questions, hopefully from version 1.0 experienced owners or not.
#1. Can the firmware of version 2.0 and 3.0 be reduced to flash version 1.0?
#2. When diagnosing the blinking power light issue by connecting directly to the router and the network card using "ping -t 192.168.1.xxx" which network address do I use, 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.2 to 2xx?
I get a reply using 192.168.1.1 but I'm not sure that works when using the TFTP Utility if it's the wrong address on my Laptop to ping?
I have WRT 120 N which has apparently stopped working. When I turn it on, only the power led turns on without blinking, no other light flashes. My computer can't detect the router signals since the signal light is off. Neither does my modem show that the router is connected to it through the ethernet cable. My ethernet cable is working fine, since it is working directly with the computer.
I have a Linksys WRT54GS vers 7.2 Router on an iMac OS X Leopard. The other day I was in the middle of downloading an upgrade for the router when Firefox gave me this message: "Firefox can't find the server". I was no longer able to access the internet, and the router's green power light was left flashing. It flashed for over 24 hours. I tried unplugging the router and shutting down the computer, then plugging in the router and turning on the computer. (I don't have a modem.) The light was still flashing. I tried pressing the logo button for 5 seconds. Still flashing. Tried pressing the reset button in the back. Still flashing. 'I can't get on the internet or into the router. Linksys live chat gave me a link to "Upgrading the router’s firmware using the TFTP utility", which involves a download, but I can't download anything because I can't access the internet.
i have Linksys WRT610N V2 now i got problem the power light flashing still keep cannot use but wifi and wan and lan no light but 1 light power only still keep power flashing blinking no stable now i using adsl modem direct connected i using linksys am300 adsl modem
If I conact from the modem to the pc I have internet so it must be the router. The power light is blinking along with all the port lights. Power light is blinking one time slow 2 fast. Have tried holding the reset button for 30 seconds and unpluging for 30 seconds. Can not go to the ip address it times out. New firmware is not avalible.
My wireless router is WRT54GC ver2.0. When I plug the power cable, all the LED light blinking including the power LED light. I try to find the firmware in the website, but here only have the version 1.0.
I have a ~3 month old e1000 v2. In the last 24 hours it appears to have died, all 4 ethernet lights plus the power light and the one to it's left are on continuously. Before I dispose of it, does anyone know if this really is a hardware fail or is there some way to recover it? I've tried a few resets, power cycles and leaving it off for a few hours in the hopes that would bring it back to life but to no avail.
I have a Linksys E2500 and recently the power led light on the back of the router started blinking. The router itself seems to be working fine. I can access the router and the router seems to be assigning the IP addresses fine. I did look up the issue on the knowledge base and tried all the solutions but the light is still blinking. Not sure what to do anymore.
So I just got this new WRT160Nv2 router. I have (1) wired computer and then my laptop running wireless to it. For the first couple days I had some issues getting consistant internet but after reading some stuff on here I downgraded to the version 8 hardware and it worked GREAT for about 3 days. Now my power light won't stop flashing and I have NO internet connection at all through the router. I have tried to reset the router by holding down the button and also unpluging it but still nothing.
I have a WRT300N and the power light is dim and all 4 ports are solid green along with the internet light being solid green.. Nothing else is plugged in.. Just the power.. I have tried to hard reset and nothing happens.
I'm having a problem with my WRT54G wireless broadband router. The power light is blinking and I can no longer access the internet. What should I do. I can't seem to understand the self-help on your site.
I have a Linksys Wireless Router, model WRT54G. I read in the user manual that it is best to turn off the router when not in use for better security measures, but there in no power button on the router. So does this mean that the power cord would have to be unplugged from the electrical outlet each time to turn the router off? This is kind of inconvenient, especially where my cord is plugged in. Also would unplugging it from the outlet each time, would this mess up the settings on the router? Is it really necessary to turn it off?
I have many of these, many models and versions. I have a WRT54G v1, V1.1, V2....V8, I also have WRT54GS's WRT54GL's and others, Lots of other Linksys stuff, almost all of it in the Blue and Black boxes of varing sizes.I have a heck of a time when I reconfigure my network or the wife changes the furniture. I'd love a single document that lists the power specifications and adapter requirements for thens devices... I can't find them any where on the Linksys site. I Have looked and searched and nowhere can I find a consolidate list.
Any have a list of the DC power Specifications, Barrel sizes, and other stuff needed to buy a replacement Power adapter. This page url...lists a lot of information but does not list this critical information... I am amazed that Linksys does not have it listed some where here. Losing a wall wart should not be a reason to pull you hair out, just a simple purchase, If they don't want to stock them, then at least tell us what they are.
I was upgrading the firmware of the WRT54G router when the notebook´ screen closed and it went to standby mode. It was sttoped the upgrade process.Now only the ports and Internet LEDs light up, but the power LED is off.I also cannot connect to the navigator for show the administrator´s window. What is the procedure to recover the operation of the router in a situation like this?
Our wireless network has started to drop out periodically. If we pull power and restore, the network immediately comes back up on all our our devices. We have the WRT54G, and we have 2 PCs, 2 Macs, and 3 iPhones, and a wired home phone. Normally there are not this many devices connected, but with everyone home for Thanksgiving and all these devices on the network we have started to see this issue.
Are there simply more devices than the router can handle? Is one of the devices crashing the network for everyone? What typically will cause something like this?
Unable to stop the power light from blinking on a BEFSR41 tried updating the firmware.I have tried resetting the router using the rest button, for 3 seconds, 10 seconds, and 30 seconds, nothing works.Tried running the setup disk, but it does not see the router. Is there a repair tool that I can download?
I have a Linksys WRT54G2 v1 router which is having a daily problem of connectiing to the Internet on my home wireless LAN. My temporary solution is to disconnect the power from the router for about 15 seconds and plug it back in .... and all is well.... at least for another day or so.The real problem is that instead of properly connecting to IPv4 address 192.168.1.100 ..... it randomly connects to Autoconfiguration IPv4 address 169.254.29.54 When this problem occurs the SSID list shows both my 192 connection as well as a public network with no Internet connection?
I've used this router for several years without a problem until I recently bought a new Canon wireless MG5320 printer which initially had problems connecting to my LAN. After a telco with tech support the printer works fine but now I am now experiencing the Autoconfig address problem.My LAN consist of the WRT54G router, a Motorola cable modem, a Lenovo laptop running Win7 64bit, a Hp desktop running Win7 64bit and the Canon wireless printer. (all connected wirelessly)
I previously asked if I should be concerned that the Internet light on my Linksys E3000 router doesn't light up when I have Internet access. Well recently I had to do a reset and I noticed that during the reset it does in fact light up, but it doesn't come on when the router is done with the reset!
My WAG120N power light is always red whenever plugged in. I can't access the configuration page. My adapter works fine and the Reset button doesn't work. I can't find any troubleshoot for the "red power light" problem in user manual !
So, I messed around with my router a little too much and just want to restore it back to the original firmware now. I have a WRT54GS v7 Linksys router and tried to follow this guide to flash the firmware to something a little more useful. After step 7 of that guide, I can't ping my router, can't access the GUI, and have no idea what my router's IP is. If I assign each computer plugged into the router an IP like 192.168.1.2 I can ping them, so the router is still functioning somewhat. I'm plugged into my modem right now to get on the Internet.
Right now, my power light is off, my DMZ light is off, my WLAN light is off, but the other lights turn on if I plug a cord into its port (plug a computer into port 1, port 1's light comes on). When I do an ipconfig /all i get this. I doubt the web interface still works, but if I could at least get the router's IP, couldn't I use tftp and put the firmware on that way?
