I've got a Linksys Wireless (G) Access Point here -- WAP54G. Last I used it, it was working fine, & it's been back in its box for about a year. I plug it in, the Power & Link lights come on on the front panel for about 6 seconds, then they both go out. Grr. Have I got fried hardware? Is there any way I can tell for sure?
There is a reset button on the back -- doesn't help. Don't know of any power surge or anything that might have hit it since it last was working correctly. I don't have another 12V DC, 0.5Amp power supply to try.
Any thoughts before I have to head over to Fry's & drop $50 ?
The only thing I could find about the LEDS said reset the device to resolve it. But that specified blinking LEDS, so it may not apply It seems the reset button has to be pushed for differing lengths of time depending on which revision you have - between 10 seconds and 30 seconds.

I tried holding down the reset from as soon as I apply power, & the lights go out regardless.

*Shouldn't* be any reason it's the wrong adapter. I haven't been able to find anyplace online that tells what the specs on the adapter should be. This is a ver3.1 box, BTW. (There's a post from a moderator on a Linksys message board indicating that they changed the power supply between v2 & v2.2 from 500mA to 1000mA -- yeesh. And I've got a 500mA here, FWIW.)

Thanks...that was actually a little more complex then I needed. I ended up just making copies of the Command Prompt shortcut using the /k option to include the proper "ping" string. Then I just linked to those.
