I have been using this product for over a year now. Its worked fine for me until today. I logged on to my computer and tried to access the internet. But it said that I didn't have it plugged in. But I did. I noticed that the Wireless-G was blinking rapidly. So I don't know if that has something to do with it, or what. I ran a diagnostics on Windows to see what the problem was. It said I had to renew my IP address. I tired to do that, but it said it failed. So I was wondering if anyone could help me on this.

Hi there,

Have you tried rebooting the router? Restarting your PC?

Yes. I also contacted Tech Support yesterday, and it still doesn't work. So I think something went bad on the product itself. Im gonna take it to Geek Squad and see if it is broken.

Geek Squad are just going to charge you to confirm what you already know - save your $$$.

If you have worked through with the Linksys Tech Support and it doesn't work, then you should arrange with Linksys to get a new one (if it's under warranty).

Cheers

I went yesterday and spent $99 dollars and got a new one. Geek Squad didn't charge me at all to hook it up and try to see what the problem was.

Good to hear it's working.

Used with the right equipment, 802.11n will give you much faster transfer speeds.
