I have one that my friend gave me, it used to work but then I tried to secure it and it got fvcked up so I stopped using it. Now Im trying to get it to work again and I've reset it, but when I set it up it doesn't appear to transmit any type of signal. Nothing shows up on my computer, and none of the WLAN lights go on. Is it just broken?

Ok, go into your computer and delete all your router profiles from the control panel. Then do a factory reset of your router. After that, call your ISP and have them change the name of the broadcast signal. This is what worked for me, but I had a router and modem combo.

I don't think the isp can do anything to affect a router. A modem I can see, but not a stand alone router.

I dunno, they changed the name for me. I'm not quite sure how though.

@the OP
Try to find a manual online.
