Router issue

Recommended Posts

I have a Linksys WRT120N.  I had a power outage and now the router I use is flashing even when there are no ether cords plugged into it and not connecting to the internet. Is it toast or is there a way to get it to work again? I have already tried unplugging it and replugging it in I have tried the reset button also still flashing lights

What is flashing on it? The WAN / LAN ports? Front lights? You also have a cable modem? Is that working normally? Can you plug directly into that and get Internet?

All the lights on the front of the router except for the wifi on and the power still light. I have a modem that I can connect to just fine which is how I am typing this right now

Yea your two best bets would be to factory reset it or try to flash the firmware.  If you get nowhere with either method then it may be shot.
