    My wireless network was not reachable and when I checked with the WRT54G router I found that the WLAN LED was off. I could access the net from another computer which was connected to one of the four LAN ports at the back.

    The router did not respond to ping and I couldnt access the configuration page thru http either.

    After some number of power cycles I still couldnt get it to work so I did a hard reset with the button on the back. After the reset, the WLAN LED is on but I still cannot see the wireless network.

    I removed the cable connecting the DSL router to the wireless router, connected my notebook thru a cable to one of the 4 LAN ports and restarted my LAN network. After restart I see that I get a IP address and the gateway is set to BUT I still am unable to ping to or access it via http.

    If I connect the DSL router back to the wireless router I see responses for ping but they are probably coming from the DSL router. In this config if I try "" I get the login page for the DSL router.

    Can anyone help me get my router working?

    Thanks in Advance!

    Let start with 30-30-30 reset. Turn on your router and wait until it boot. (around 1minute). You have to hold reset for whole 30-30-30 process. So press reset and wait 30sec, then unplug the power cable from router and wait another 30sec. After that plug the power cord back and wait another 30sec. Release the button . Then try to connect to router. And let me know :wink:
