How do i fix the following message on my linksys router Response header parsing failed: Response data.
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!

No power to my router
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.

WRT300N power light is off, all other lights solid
The Problem is all Lan port light are solid and power light is dim. And you hear a very low hizzz noise from the router.
I Fixed it with a new 470uf 10v cap ps its the one next to the circle copper wrapped wire than CS29 is written next to it.
Just replace it and it will start work again.

How do i hook up
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.

Linksys wireless was fine on my lan line now cable it is not?
Lets see if this works out for ya.
1. In your browser go to http://192.168.1.1
2. The user will be "admin" and the password field leave it blank
3. Go to the Setup Tab
4. On WAN Connection Type make sure it is set to "Obtain an IP Automatically"
5. Go to the DHCP tab and make sure it is enabled
6. Unplug the Roadrunner modem and the Linksys Router.
7. Wait around 15-30 seconds
8. Plug the Roadrunner modem in and wait until all the lights except the ethernet/computer connection are on.
9. When they are all on plug the Linksys router power back in
10. Wait around 30 seconds and see if your getting a connection
Otherwise get back to me. Good luck.

How to connect a usb hub to Linksys EA7400
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.
