TP-Link ADSL2+ Wireless :: TD-W8961ND Light Blinking Continuously - Unable To Connect Internet

ISP : BSNL Data One
I had Purchased a brand new TP-Link WifI Modem Router TD-W8961ND with S/N : 12CB5200872 from [URL] and it got delivered few days back. When I am trying to connect it to the internet the modem is not getting connected nor configured. The Power button light, ADSL Light and internet light are continuously blinking and nothing is getting steady. The modem is appearing to be a damaged piece of modem and it is very unfortunate that we have got a modem from flipkart in an unserviceable condition. It came with a warranty of 03 years and I wanted a replacement so that I can use the modem for connecting internet.
The send light is steadily blinking. Yesterday I disconnected the cable into my main cable box connected to my tv, so I could move it into a new tv stand I bought, and ever since then I get no Internet connection (tv cable works fine.) I cant see how that made my Internet go out, but maybe it did. I checked connections on both ends and all cables are tightly secured.Here is a log of my modem, I found out how to get it through this site.[CODE]

I just bought the wireless router as stated in the subject and I cant get 2 of our PC�s to connect wirelessly for some reason. 4 other PC's are fineAll machines running windows 7, but when the authentication type on WPA2-PSK the 2 computers ask for a password which we put in but keeps saying its wrong, but infact its right.I can connect them on WPA-PSK, but then all the computers drop out after 30 seconds.

I want to add more users to my home network and I couldn't, at this moment I only can connect 8 devices (12 devices at least) when I try to connect the next one its impossible, but if I take off one of the connected devices then the router allows to connect the new one.How can I connect more than 8 devices to my router ? (wireless)Also, is there any limits with Wireless MAC Address Filter ? because I can't add more than 8 MAC addresses in my old router I could do that.
I have had a Dlink dir 615 for some time now and always had a few issues, but nothing a reboot of the router couldn't solve. This time the problem is persisting, though. The wireless signal keeps blinking and on my laptop it says No internet connection. I've rebooted the router, restored the router, rebooted the modem, and nothing seems to work.

In the past everything was working fine (had same computer connected wireless + wire) never had this disconnection. Now, I have a laptop connected using wireless & desktop wired but this disconnection is becoming so irritating. It is not only that I lose the internet connection, I lose the DSL like (as if the modem is turned off then on) and all my files over the LAN are either lost during transmission or something else.

And I have two problems.
1) I can not see any desktops in my local net, and with old router I could see all, for example (diskstation, dm800, etc...) In my macbook air I can not see my NAS Synology and with old router I do.
2) All PCs that are conected to 192.168.1.4 have not IP. and DHCP in TD-W8961ND is activated.

I have version 1.1 and d/l'd firmware 111125. The upgrade ran successfully to 100% and then I got the login screen again. However after checking, then restarting to factory default the version displayed was still the old one
Region : Canada Model : TD-W8961ND Hardware Version : V2 Firmware Version : 2.0.0 Build 120608 Rel.34612 ISP : TekSavvy NAT is enabled (under PVC2), as is UpNP
Whenever I enter all the info for a port forward under NAT in the virtual server tab, I click 'save' and nothing happens; chrome and firefox both give the same result.If I go to a different screen after pressing save and then come back to NAT settings, there's no entry updates and no port forwards.Should I install a different firmware (I can't find a newer version to install) or is NAT not supposed to work under PVC2? If I don't enter proper info (like leave the ports blank) I get an error if I press 'save', asking me to finish entering all the required info.

I've downloaded the firmware update 111125 and followed the instructions. The progress bar reaches 100% but the router doesn't seem to restart (judging by the status lights on the front). It does ask me to log back in but when I check the firmware version, it still reads 100722. I also tried factory default settings after the update. Still it reads 100722. I've tried the update 3 times now.

We need to replace the old modem for a small hotel, at the same time we are trying to expand the open (and free) public wifi that we currently offer in the bar area. Before our current modem/router went *PFFFT*, we had managed to get quite decent coverage using the 5 TP repeaters (TL-WA830RE) - but it was ALOT of work. Now we're hoping to replace with a TP modem to make the wifi setup easier.We also have 3 pc's, two wired and one wireless, that are for hotel use. We would like to keep these as separate and as safe as possible from the guest wireless, and i have been told VLAN is the best way to go.So, from what i have read on its spec's, the TD-W8961ND has both VLAN and QoS (which we would also like). It is also well within our price range.Given the setup we wish to implement, is the W8961ND the right idea? What considerations do i need to be bearing in mind for setup?

I have a TD-W8961ND that I got for my Dads internet connection to replace the awful Zyxel Modem/router. Problem is that the TD-W8961ND is Annex A (euroDOCSIS)We actually needed a TD-W8961NB - Annex B (DOCSIS)I already know that it is possible to convert other routers from A to B and vice versa...Just wondering if there is any way of either cross flashing or if there is a conversion firmware for this router.

how to configure QOS on the TD-W8961ND so that the sip packets from a Linksys SPA2102 VOIP ATA which gets its IP address from the DHCP server in the TD-W8961ND is given priority over all other traffic regardless of whether such traffic comes from devices connected via ethernet or wireless to the TD-W8961ND. In my setup I cannot assign a static IP address to the VOIP ATA.

I have two W8961ND, one for may office and the another one for use at my home, I tried to upgrade my device but during the upgrading the power supply plugged out and after that my device didn't boot up any more, so how can I repair my device, Is there any uploader for it's hardware chip because it doesn't work with it's LAN port or WIFI at this moment
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 bought this recently on EBay and it works fine. I have just checked the firmware version and it displays as 120703 rel 29722. This version doesn't appear amongst the downloads - the most recent is 120427. Has somebody upgraded to the wrong software? Should I upgrade to 120427?

A couple of weeks ago I have bought a TD-W8961ND in replacement of my old modem/router (of another brand, to upgrade from Wireless G to N). I tried to replicate in the new router something similar to my old setup, so I programmed Virtual Servers (under the NAT menu) with the following rules: NATRules.jpg in an attempt to:
- grant access from "outside" Internet to my web server
- have a Wakeup-On-LAN from "outside" Internet ..etc.. without success. Please note that:
- I have successfully setup a DDNS server to reach my modem router from outside
- as for WOL, I defined my subnet mask as 255.255.255.128
- I have not set any other rule, nor in NAT, nor in routing or other
- I tried also with firewall disabled
- I do my testing by means of a smartphone with wireless disabled and Internet connection via mobile service provider
- Both the above mentioned functions were working with my old modem/router (and still work on LAN), and I have not changed other things (PC setup etc)

Using windows 7 and 8 on different machines I am unable access my routers web based set up.
I enter the usual "admin" and password in the login box. 3 goes and then get error message. or hangs on waiting.(connected to the router with Ethernet Cable). Could this be a windows based problem. I think it was ok on XP but that is gone now. Router is working fine but I just cant access it to alter any settings.
My 2 other spare routers which are not TP-link also have the same problem.

I have just bought this ADSL router. Of course, the first thing I did was upgrade the firmware, or so I thought.It seems that the firmware on the TP website is older than the one which was pre-installed onto the router.Website Firmware: 3.0.0 Build 120524 Rel.05221 ------------- i.e. 24.May.2012 Release 05221.Pre-loaded Firmware on router: 3.0.0 Build 120808 Rel.28888 -------------- i.e. 8.August.2012 Release 28888.I have foolishly uploaded the older firmware to the router from the website. I wanted to see what version number showed in the Router's Firmware page so I did a ROM backup, thinking I could always reload the "current" firmware. As it turns out, the ROM file is just the user settings backup.
It is sad that TP-Link doesn't provide change logs. Where to find later firmwares, or even what the change to the firmware was?And when we can expect a new firmware to be uploaded to the website?
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.
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?
