Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Power LED Blinking

Dec 7, 2012

I'm using an E2500 and the Power LED started blinking this week.From the manual, this means   “Flashes slowly during bootup, during firmware upgrades, and druing a Wi-Fi-Protected Setup Connection.” We have a wireless printer (wireless disabled), and a Kindle that does use wireless. All other computers are hard wired.  I have not started a Wi-Fi protected setup. The router has been in use since the third week in October, and is more or less OK even though the Power LED is flashing.  How do I get the Power LED to stop flashing?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Power Led Light On Back Started Blinking

Nov 8, 2012

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.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT610N - Power Led Blinking?

Apr 13, 2013

I have a problem with a LinkSys WRT610N router (v1).
I have just bought it used. The problems: I see the power led blinking all the time. I can't connect to I do not notice any effect on the leds when pressing the reset button (I feel a soft click when I do that, but none of the leds seem to realize). The manual states that the led should stop blinking after the "self-diagnostics" ends.

My configuration is DSL connection (by AT&T, phone cable), a Siemens 4100 modem, an ethernet cable into the LinkSys router, then an ethernet cable into a Linux PC. Everything is wired. I see the green light of the LAN connection to my PC, the world blue icon and the USB icon stable on, a shy orange led on in the middle (wireless?) and the power blue led blinking. The PC is configured with DHCP, and I can access both the modem ( and the internet. The gateway address is the one of the modem (again In summary, the ethernet of the router seems to work, but the router is completely transparent, inaccessible, unconfigurable, apparently unresponsive. Trying to connect to (the supposed default address of the web interface of the router, which is different from the of the modem) I get a timeout error, and I can't ping that address. The modem is configured to handle the PPPoE connection, which I am not sure what it means but the text description suggests in this mode I should be able to access the router, provided that its address is not conflicting with the modem's. If I disconnect the modem from the router, DHCP does not get any address. If I force one, still does not respond to pings.
So Is it normal not to notice any reaction when hitting the reset button? is the object just broken, except that the ethernet subsystem still works?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G Blinking Power Light

Jul 4, 2006

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?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N Power Light Blinking?

May 11, 2009

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  My OS is  Windows xp x64 sp2, and I have DSL.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Power Outage - E1000 Lights Blinking

Apr 28, 2011

I am on a surge protector and we lost power last night.  This morning we were stilling experiencing a brown out but now the power is back 100%.  I've walked through the E1000 router reset and not matter what I do, all the lights except the power light blink rapidly and dimly.  Could the router be fried even though it's on a surge protector????  It's less than 6 months old so hopefully still covered by warranty.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GS V1.0 Firmware - Blinking Power Light

Feb 20, 2012

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" which network address do I use, or to 2xx?
I get a reply using but I'm not sure that works when using the TFTP Utility if it's the wrong address on my Laptop to ping?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GS / Power Light Blinking - Internet Is Down

Feb 21, 2012

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.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G V5 With Blinking Power Light Connected

Mar 24, 2011

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?

D-Link DIR-615 :: All Lights Blinking Including Power?

D-Link DAP-1522 :: DIR 655 - Blinking Power Light

Dec 9, 2009

I successfully linked a DIR-655 (A4, FW:1.21) via WPS.

I then updated the DAP-1522 to FW:1.21 from 1.1.

Things looked great. I then moved it upstairs to my home theater.

Plugged it in and got a blinking power light. Completely unresponsive to either linkage or

I have followed everyone advice listed either here or in Amazons reviews. And from my own experience with similar electronics the flashing power LED is indicative of a "brick".

I have initiated a replacement shipment from amazon. Just wanted to see if anyone had seen this before.

Cisco Routers :: WRVS4400N V2 Power And Diag Lights Blinking And Does Nothing Else

Feb 4, 2012

I have been given the task of unbricking a WRVS4400N V2 router.  It just sits there with the Power and Diag lights blinking and does nothing else.I'm thinking I'm going to have to try to find some way to flash the firmware, because I'm seeing that this is a common problem with this router.I already tried support "chat" online, but after about 20-30 minutes waiting for someone to actually come into the chat room, I gave up.I did note that this model is not being sold anymore and won't be supported before very long, so this may be a gigantic waste of time, but I thought I would give it a shot.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT150N All Lights On Front Are Blinking

I had successfully set up my new WRT150N router and it was working.  But then it just stopped after about 12 hours.  All the lights on the front of the router are blinking.  When I directly connect to the router, my computer can't detect it.  I've browsed through these forums a bit and tried a few things - the reset button (60 seconds), unplugging the router, downloading the EasyLink Connect tool, but I'm still stuck.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1000 Lights Blinking Erratically

May 7, 2011

When I came home tonight, the lights on my E1000 hardware version 1 (that I have had for only 9 months) were, as best as I can describe, blinking like a digital clock blinks 12:00 over and over. All of the blue LEDs would light up at once, and go off, repeatedly and rapidly. This is the second time this has happened - the first time (about two weeks ago) I called a techie friend and he had me hard reset the router (30 on 30 off 30 on) and it worked, I just had to set up my wireless network again. This time, I just unplugged the cable from the back of the router, waited about 15 seconds and plugged it back in, and it went back to normal.
In case someone may be wondering, unplugging the from the surge protector did NOT work; when I first noticed the lights blinking, I unplugged it from the surge protector, waited about 10 seconds, and plugged it back in; the lights continued their rapid erratic blinking. I then did what I described above - I plugged it back into the surge protector, and then unplugged it from the back of the router, waited, and plugged it back in and it was back to normal.
I thought perhaps it needed a firmware upgrade, but checking the website, while I was able to locate the site to upgrade the firmware for E1000, I could only see an upgrade for hardware Version 2, and my router is Version 1 - which, from what I understand, is NOT what I want, as that firmware is for a different hardware version and may cause problems on my Version 1 router.
While my router seems to be fine now. Is my router starting to kick the bucket already? I haven't had it that long - bought it last September. Do I need to upgrade any software or firmware for it? If so, where do I get the correct upgrade for my hardware version?
