Router not connecting

The last couple of days my internet has been spotty. All of my devices disconnected and when reconnected recieved a message saying password was wasn't. When I turned the power off (waited) then turned it back on, the 1-4 LEDs lit up red (amber?), and have stayed lit. The Wi-fi ON/off button with LED is lit, and the power and internet LEDs are barely lit amber. NO ethernet cables are plugged in. I've tried restarting and, please?

Re: Router not connecting


The behavior you are describing can have more that one cause.


-Bad or failing power supply

-Corrupt firmware

-Damaged hardware (router itself)


Some things that might help us:

What FW revision was the router running?

Do you know what preceeded this behavior?


Router was working when I went to sleep, when I woke up it was not functioning?

Failed firmware upgrade

Router was subjected to power surge / dip, etc?


Where to start:

TFTP FW Recovery
