    Ever since I bought this router, at firmware .13, the wireless light does not come on. I have to fiddle with it for a while before it starts using wireless. The settings are all correct and it happens whenever the router gets unplugged for a while.

    Even the Wireless Status page only shows the mode wireless is set at (e.g. G-only) nothing else about the channel or SSIDx MAC addresses....

    I've upgraded to .29 and even .32.2, same issue
    Have to keep resetting the unit, changing settings until wifi magically comes back on.

    Anyone have this problem, or have a solution? Or should I just sell/return this and get something else?

    How, does the router "get unplugged for while" ? why not leave it turned on? when you say you reset, I take it you have pressed the reset button for 30 seconds yes?

    Normally it is always left on.
    Last night for example, wires were tangled and in the process of taking my laptop adapter out the plug for the linksys came out and router was off for about 6 hours that day. Came home, no wifi, still no wifi today 12 hours later.
    I've upgraded and downgraded flashes (.29 and .32.2) and no change.

    Once I cloned my mac address and wifi came back.
    Another time I setup a VLAN and wifi came back.
    And the last time I unplugged an ethernet wire from Port 1 and wifi came back.

    I've tried all these things this time and they aren't working.

    I guess I will keep power cycling it till it works.

    if the wifi is so unpredictable then you must have a faultly unit considering I have not seen this behaviour yet on the WRV200 with so many setting changes.
