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.

Power (Green) The Power LED lights up and will stay on while the Router is powered on. When the Router goes through its self-diagnostic mode during every boot-up, this LED will flash. When the diagnostic is complete, the LED will be solidly lit.DMZ (Green) The DMZ LED indicates when the DMZ function is being used. This LED will remain lit as long as DMZ is enabled.WLAN (Green) The WLAN LED lights up when the wireless feature is enabled. If the LED is flashing, the Router is actively sending or receiving data over the network., 2, 3, 4 (Green) These numbered LEDs, corresponding with the numbered ports on the Router's back panel, serve two purposes. If the LED is continuously lit, the Router is successfully connected to a device through that port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over that port.Internet (Green) The Internet LED lights up when there is a connection made through the Internet port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over the Internet port

Hello, my linksys router is flashing wlan,internet lights/ no-one is on line. is this normal?


Yes,

The links remains active when you are not using it and it is not unusual for lights to blink. And dont forget that Microsoft does various updates over the net when you are NOT using the machines.

My wlan light keep going on and off on my wrt54g


Also check if the power light on your router is blinking. If it is blinking, that's an indication of hardware failure. To revive it, do a hard reset. Press and hold the power button of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power. Wait for 30 seconds again before you plug it back in.

Need to redo wireless setup betw linksys & westell


You will need to assign a different ip address to the Westell modem - I am assuming that both the router & modem are using the same ip address 192.168.1.1? If that is the case, then assign 192.168.1.2 to the modem.

Wireless-G Broadband Router


The WLAN light will normally blink if there is data passing through. Most often if the problem is that you need a reboot for the router to work again you will need to update the firmware of your router. You need to go to www.linksys.com then click on the top right search then look for your model number then select the option to WRT54G downloads. Search for your model and then download the firmware. After that on a computer wired to your router go to http://192.168.1.1 through Internet Explorer. Click on the administration tab then click Choose. Select the file that you downloaded then click on Upgrade. That should fix your problem.
