I have the Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router and when i plug it into my modem, no lights come on, besides the power light which was already lit. I've tried resetting it (holding the reset button for 30 secs) and all the lights go off until i let the button go and the power light comes back on immediately, followed by no other lights. It's a used router and i just got it today. I plugged the ethernet cord from my modem into the internet slot then plugged another cord into one of the 4 other slots and plugged it into my computer. It couldn't even detect any connection or device. Please help me!

Hello and :welcome: to BleepingComputer!

Well as I see it you most likely have a bad router I had one of those and it started to drop its connection then it started to do what yours is acting like. Some days I spent the just to get it to work but then I got a new one. Basically I think the circuitry that is used for the ethernet is fried as it is not receiving any connection.

Some things you should check first would be the ethernet cables make sure there are no bends or twists in them and be sure they are fully inserted.

I agree with computerxpds. It sounds like a dead router if you are using different cables and no lights are coming on.

Foresight: When you give up on this G router, go with N ;)

But yes the problem sounds like a dead router.

Yeah definitely go with the N routers if you get a new one they are so much faster! :)
