Specs: Windows 7, Toshiba Sattelite Laptop
Ok, so went to long onto xbox live this morning...wasn't connected. This happens sometimes on the initial start up. I hit, "Test Connection". Usually it THEN connects to xbox live. However, this time was not the case. It said from the Xbox to the Router was "OK". Router to the internet was "OK"...but THEN, it couldn't connect to Xbox Live. My phone was working on the wifi as well as my gf's laptop. So i go out to the loft and unplug the modem and the router for 10 seconds and then plug it back in. Now...I have NO WIFI. Right now my computer is plugged into the Linksys Router channel 2. The modem is plugged into the back of the Linksys in the "Internet" jack. Now, I'm noticing the power light is blinking extremely fast and every so often makes a "buzzing" noise where the light seems to become brighter. The buzzing noise also causes the Channel 2 light to become brighter and to stop blinking and become steady "On". My "Internet" light blinks periodically then disappears when the buzzing noise comes back on. I tried the "Hard Reset" multiple ways, but none of the ways work.

I have Windows 7 btw, so I open up cmd and run it. Then type in "ipconfig/all". My "Default Gateway" showed nothing. So I did the "ipconfig/release" followed by the "ipconfig/renew". I then go back into "ipconfig/all" and my "Default Gateway" reads "2002:c058::1"
Under that the "DNS Servers" read "" & "".

I also completed a "Ping" test and it worked the first time, now it's showing "Ping request could not find host Please check the name and try again."

Now the buzzing is almost constant and growing louder from the modem...can someone please tell me is going on???!!!

Also, yes I tried logging onto the Linksys Website Config (the and it timed out.

If the buzz is coming from the router it sounds like it's shot (never heard one buzz before) but see what other think.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Post the entire output of ipconfig /all.

You won't be able to get off your local subnet without a default gateway. You can try setting your TCP/IP settings statically to see if that works.

From my experience, the flashing power light on Linksys devices means that the firmware is corrupt or needs to be reflashed.
