TP-Link 300Mbps Wireless :: WR1042ND System Light Turns Solid Overnight While There Is No Activity
Feb 18, 2013
Region : Canada
Model : TL-WR1042ND
Hardware Version : V1
Firmware Version : 3.14.4
Recently in the morning the router will have lost ability to connect to internet <internet light is on> and I cannot access the router page <sys light solid> from either wired or wireless connections. Why is this and will it be solved if I upgrade firmware?

I have a machine called 'survtest' on my lan with a permanent ip addr of 192.168.0.112. I can't ping that host by name from any other machine on the lan, although I can ping the ip address. Not only that but this machine appears in the DHCP client list within the router with its name 'survtest' and correct IP addr.
There is another machine on the lan called 'bsd' that also has a permanent IP addr of 192.168.0.110. It can be pinged by name from any other machine on the lan. However it does not show up in the DHCP client list at all.
Neither of these machines can be pinged by name from within the tplink admin diagnostic screen.

I have a WR842ND with firmware 3.12.22 Build 120424 Rel.39632n. I can't seem to get the mail log emailed out. I've tried hotmail, gmail and ISP email ids. I know these will work as I've done it with my NAS and other routers. When I'm in the System Tools/System Logs/Mail Settings I have authentication enabled and I know I've put in the proper information including mail server outgoing mail names EG. smtp.live.com for hotmail.
I don't see any place to identify a non standard port IE. not port 25, to use. So when I try to send I get the Userid or password is wrong message. Do I have to configure something else.

I bought TL-WR1042ND and I have problem. After 2 hours, the router loses all connections. Lights that everything is OK, but he can not connect to any site on the Internet or LAN. Even nor to 192.168.0.1 Only search for the host.
I have a DHCP internet. DNS 188.8.131.52 I disabled firewall and all I do not need, but nothing worked.

I had it all working fine, then I wanted to upgrade the firmware. The original firmware was 3-14-4. I downloaded and applied the 3-15-4 firmware. Now when it powers on the power light is on all the time. Immediately the sys, 4, 3, 2, 1, Internet, usb and wps lights flash once. Then about 5 seconds later the 4, 3, 2, 1 & Internet lights flash once, then a second later the cycle starts again. When I connect it to the PC it starts to make a connection on the NIC, but then the router resets. Model: TL-WR1042ND, Ver 1.3 . Is there a way to reset the firmware or get it working again?

I have read how to configure the Virtual Servers - Forwarding url...and added two entries, one for port 44612 and one for 32680 , my pc ip is 192.168.0. 100.Before I installed the router (my pc was connected directly to the lan connection) all was working just fine.And I double checked that the ports are not being blocked by firewall.

I have a wired connection to 12 MBs and is very stable.My problem is that the download speed becomes 12MBs to 2MBs without apparent reason.It is fixes if you restart the router.Here will show you the optimal speed of connection.
-no power light -solid green lights: WAN-L1-L2-L3-L4
tried to go to recovery mode (power on while holding reset switch).....does not work.my search on the internet revealed, that after bad flash, power light still comes on, maybe as orange, maybe blinking, or just blinks once
I've not found any topic related to what happened to me. Bought two cameras and upgraded the firmware on both as asked, but one of them just stopped. The light is solid green and not red like other posts.Tried the recovery procedure, but the browser won't find my camera. Changed computer IP and everything else that was told to be done. Nothing works!! I also can't find any posts relaled to my problem all over the internet.
I recently switched from a DSL ISP (Earthlink, Zyxel modem configured as a bridge, pppoE connect) to a cable ISP (Comcast, Arris cable modem, dhcp connect). Basically PC --> DIR615-->Cable modem-->Internets. With the old DSL the Internet activity LED (green, looks triangular) on the DIR615 blinked only when internet activity occurred. With the new Comcast connection it blinks non-stop about 5 times a second! Even if the PC is turned off it blinks. It stops blinking if I disconnect the ethernet cable between router and modem. The connection itself is fine, but if the DIR615 is doing something it should not be doing it might slow the connection down a bit, (or burn something out prematurely?)FYI, the Arris cable modem does not seem to be a router. It takes a cable connection from outside and provides a single ethernet cable and 2 (voice) telephone cables to the house.

I am having troubles configuring TL-WR740N. After I connect everything and turned in on, the system Light is ON and the power light is also ON and nothing else. I Connected my laptop to the 1 of 4 LAN ports and the WAN to my modem.
We have a root AP whose status light is showing solid red. We power cycled it and it still shows solid red. According to the Cisco documentation, this indicates a firmware failure. Unfortunately, we did not get Smartnet with this access points and instead opted for the limited lifetime warranty.
My question is: is there any way to fix the firmware via console? Whether it be through xmodem or what not. I ran debugs on the controller and can confirm that the AP is not communcating with the controller.
It is also weird that the mesh APs that were previously connected to this root AP show a solid red on their status lights and green for their RF LEDs. Shouldn't the status LED be flashing green-amber-red?
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 got 3 new TP-Link WA901ND PoE access points for a wireless network I manage. Right now I'm using the stock injectors that came with them because I need to get adapters still so I can use them with my PoE switch.

About a week after getting these units installed and having them work great, I started running into problems. One of the unit's system light was not on, and I could not connect to the access point from my phone, or log into the web interface. I did a soft reboot (unplug for 30 seconds, plug back in) and it seemed to work fine, but then I had the same problem, and soon both units were doing it. I thought i might be pushing the distance limit the stock injectors have, but then I started having the same problem with a unit that is 10 feet from the injector.
I was having problems connecting to one of my usb devices that was plugged into my router. I unplugged the router to reset it and whenever it starts up it flashes green and the green light goes solid for less then a minute before turning red. It's a solid red light. I've tried unplugging everything and restarting it and nothing. Ironically it still lets me connect to the internet but when I access the control panel on my computer it shows as disconnected. Is this means my router is busted. This is my second Belkin Router and the only reason I had to replace the last one is because it was a G+Mimi router and I upgraded to an N Router.
I have recently wiped my hdd and installed WinXp, I use to have vista but a crash occurred. I have WinXP SP3 with a Belkin Connect N150 connected to a Arris Telephony modem from Comcast. My setup use to work on vista. I've ran belkin setup from the disc multiple times and it gets to the part where it says connect and make sure cables are connected. All cables are connected, but my router has a solid amber light. I can access arris through wired internet, but I really want my wireless to work.
When I first got my DIR-655 (Hardware version B1) the Wireless would keep on turning itself off, and it needed a reboot of the unit to turn it back on again.After having upgraded to the 2.03NA version of the Firmware it seems to be working correctly and hasn't turned off for a few days now.
I have a single WRT54G v5 that has treated me very well over the years. I have too many devices right now and I'd like to throughput of N, but have failed to find one that is measurably faster or as stable than my current equipment. Most recently I tried a D-Link DGL-4500 and regardless of hours of configuration, research and support I was left with slower-than-expected speeds and dropped connectivity about once a day.
I want to be able to stream media to all 3 BoxeeBox's simultaneously while browsing the internet on a few of my devices and I don't want to have to reboot my router daily or even weekly.
So far I have come to a preliminary conclusion that a solid setup for me would be a ZyXEL ZyWALL USG20 and 2 to 3 Ubiquiti UniFi AP's. While the USG20 does intimidate me, I have several solid network admins that have told me they'll set up the network for me and walk me through it.
I changed the setting from static to dynamic and the switch froze up. all lights on the panel flashed, when they stopped the system light on the left side continued to flash. I tryied unplugging unit as well as depressing the reset for longer than 30 seconds. Unit still the same.
Just replaced Dir 625 with Dir 655. I have Sony KDL 46NX700 TV. When the router is on the tv turns off and on, like a reboot. The longer the tv stays on the longer between the reboots. Also if the wireless device is turned off in tv settings it does not turn off and on. Have talked to Sony, they can't resolve the problem. Had me call local repair. He thinks it may be the power supply. He said he would order one. That was before I discovered it was the wireless signal causing it to turn off and on.
I have (2) Sup 32 configured in a 6509 chassis. I have 1 power supply plugged into the wall and 1 power supply that is not plugged into anything but it is in the chassis and has green light to show that it has been recognized.
My problem is the "system light" on both sup32 remains amber and does not turn green. I have done show modules and sh diagnostics and sh power and everything checks out OK. Also there is an amber light on "active" on the 2nd Sup32 which I am assuming means that it is in standby mode so that would be correct.
Q: My question is could it be the power supply that is not plugged into anything causing the "system light" to stay amber and not turn green? Q: Will this amber system light on the Sup32 stop the 6509 from running as normal?
I have a DIR 601 with a actiontec GT701D modem.When I shut down my computer the globe on the router goes from green to orange.The modem people say their modems are always on Am I missing something on the DIR601?why?
I have a pretty old Linksys WRT160Nv3. I tried support from them but I was told my router is too old to receive free support. My router is connected to a comcast modem (Motorola).
Two days ago I tried to connect to the internet with my iPod and had no luck, the same went for my phone and my roommate's laptop. When I went on to the computer with with the router I was it was connected to Network 4 our local network and couldn't find any other networks. Our router came with 'Network Magic' so I opened that to see if our existing network showed up there, but only it's settings were there...it's like the computer tried to erase our network. I reset the router and re-made the network and this solved the problem for the day and most of yesterday.
Yesterday evening, I came home to the same problem. I did the same thing I ddi the first time, but instead of reseting the router before I did anything I skipped to re-installing it. I'm here because this happened again this morning, and before I go and set up the network again, I'd like to know what I'm doing wrong and what I should do. I even got a new anti-virus because I was afraid there might be a virus on the the computer making it act weird but I haven't been able to complete a full scan yet.
we've given up on the 4410n. we have two of them, one at the front of our office, one at the back (we have a floor in a highrise in san francisco). the one at the rear of the office - version one hardware, has never had any trouble. it just runs and runs and runs, has been up in the false ceiling for more than a year now. the one at the front of the office started giving us trouble within months of installation. not passing traffic. took it down from the false ceiling and kept it on my desk. staff got in the habit of just power cycling it when the first person showed up in the morning, since it always locked up overnight. RMA'ed it, got a version 2 hardware unit. seemed better initially - but it was faking it. same problems. going unresponsive overnight. gave up.
bought a $40 TrendNet AP. not a single problem in the month it's replaced the 4410N.
better quality hardware at less than 1/4th the price. wow. never buying a cisco WAP again.
I am wondering if I can log all activity on my network. Right now I can log activity with MAC addresses, but if I add a device I have to keep adding MAC address. I also have to have several policies because I can only put about 7 MAC address in per policy.
I noticed the option to add 'other machines' and I am not sure how this works. I have tried it and can't get it to work.
I have been successfully printing to my HP 8250 printer USB connected to my e4200 router for nearly a year from my xp ethernet pc and 2 windows 7 wireless laptops. Today nothing could print to it and when I deleted and tried to reinstall using cisco connect it tells me I am trying to connect an unsupported device both on ethernet XP PC and wireless windows 7 laptop. I have installed no new software or drivers this year. I have had to regress to attaching the printer back to the XP PC and sharing it which obviously means the PC now needs to be switched on to print.
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!
I just bought the wireless-g range expander from a computer parts store.... its not brand new, and i don't have the cd. It is picking up the wireless signal and my laptop sees that it is excellent signal strength but it won't connect to it and the "Link" light is red
