First and foremost, did you start with the Holy Grail of steps when dealing with routers?

YES! It does make a difference and it matters.
Hopefully you haven't bricked it (probably not).

If it is powered on, press and HOLD the reset button until the VERY END, DO NOT LET UP.
Holding the reset button for 30 seconds, then unplug the power and wait 30 seconds, plug power back in and wait 30 seconds. . . NOW you can let up on the reset button.

Now you can try and reflash the firmware, DO make sure you are using the correct version of DD-WRT for your EXACT model AND Version.

I have only done a few, but the 30/30/30 is crucial I am telling you!

Check the wall outlet for power, using a lamp or such. If you can get a multi-meter, set the meter to Volts-DC between 12 and 20. Plug the power supply into the wall outlet and test the other end for voltage. The power supply should tell you its output so the reading should be more than a couple of volts. If it is less or ZERO the power supply is dead. If it has power, then open the router and check for a fuse. If the fuse is dead, replace. If there is no fuse or the fuse is OK then the router may be dead. Best of luck.

Please explain in detail.
If your router is not working then I will suggest you to reset the router and reconfigure the router.
create a new wireless network and see if that works.

It's a wireless router, so you may not need to use a port at all.

You can connect to any of the ports numbered 1 through 4. The yellow Internet port should connect to your outside network. (Cable modem or router or Ethernet port from your Internet service provider.)

If you already have a cable router, then you don't want to use a wireless router. You will want to use a wireless access point instead.
The reason for this is that anything plugged-in to your cable router will not be able to access anything connected to the wireless router due to the NAT firewall in the wireless router.
If the wireless router has the option to make it a "Gateway", then that will fix this issue; otherwise, take the router back and buy a wireless access point instead.
As for how you hook up the wireless router to the cable router, you have to unplug the power cord of the cable router for about 15 minutes before hooking the Ethernet jack from it to the wireless router.
Once the 15 minutes have passed, you then can plug the Ethernet cable from the wireless router "WAN" port into an Ethernet port on the cable router and then plug-in the power cord of the cable router.
Once the cable router is finished syncing-up, the cable router should provide an IP address to the wireless router.
If you really have a cable modem instead of a cable router, then you won't have to put the wireless router into gateway mode.

Lets see if this works out for ya.

not really unless you were to run an ethernet cable from your existing network to a location outside of the current wi fi range.
A repeater would be better,review-2225.html
It hears the wi fi signal so you put within the signal range near where the signal still can be heard near the extent of the current wi fi range. It will hear the signal and then re-transmit it to extend the signal range .

You might be able to use a gain antenna of 5dbi 2dbi is lost in the cable usually so it is 3dbi which is twice the level

another method would be a omni directional antenna facing the coverage range . But it is beaming in one direction .
which means more signal strength in one direction

I think you can try upgrading the firmware on your router,

Connect the computer to the router.
Download the latest firmware.
Open the setup page of the router and upgrade the firmware.
After upgrading the firmware, reset the router and reconfigure it manually.

See How to upgrade firmware on Linksys router.

Linksys WRT120N... | Answered on Oct 25, 2018

It depends on the power capability of the EA7400! Usually, those ports are rated at 500ma, or 0.5 amps each. If you plug in a non-powered hub into one of the ports, it will draw power from the EA7400 to operate. If the power draw needed exceeds the capability of the port, it won't work properly. A powered hub relies on an external power source. In that case, only data collisions (oversaturating the ports) need to be considered.
