First thing to try here is to get a new power adapter if you have friends that have a netgear router you can use the power adapter of those but if not , you can go to a electronic store near you and ask for a power adapter or better yet take te router with you and check if it will be power ON if you try to plug it using a power adapter from the store before you buy a new power adapter, and if the router will still not power ON using a different power adapter the router is already dead and if its still under warranty better contact Netgear and have it replace....

Hope that helps.........

Linsys ea6500 blinking

If the Power or Diag LED (Light Emitting Diode) on your Linksys router is blinking, it means the firmware is corrupted. If this happens, you won't be able to do the following:
• Access the router's web-based setup page
• Assign IP addresses to computers connected to your router using its DHCP capabilities
NOTE: This also applies if your router's LED is dimly illuminated.
Listed below are the things that you can do to solve this issue:
Powercycle the router
Assign a static IP address to your computer
Ping the router
Reset the router
Update/Re-flash the firmware using the TFTP utility

There are several situations that could be the cause of the problem. I would try to uninstall all software and drivers related to the USB device, reboot your pc and follow the documentation for proper installation of the software, drivers, and device. Many USB devices are not Plug-n-Play, they require the installation of the software and drivers before you plug the device in. If it is not installed correctly it may malfunction. If this does not work you might check compatability with your version of Operating system, PC etc....If compatable then try installing on a different pc to see if the problem persists.

Try to connect the router to a different outlet and try to turn it back on, if nothing happens, theres a possibility that there is something wrong with the routers power supply.

How do you solve the 8013031B error code on the ps3

I have researched your issue and found that people who were experiencing the 8013031B error message resolved the issue in a few different ways.

1. Try rebooting your internet connection. You can do this by turning off the ps3 and disconnecting the the power from both the modem and router. wait 1 minute then plug the power back into the modem. Wait for the modem to establish a connection to your internet service provider (typically takes between 2 and 4 minutes). after the modem gets a connection plug in your router and wait for the router to connect to the modem (typically 1 to 2 minutes). Then power your ps3 on and retest.

If your still getting the same issue try bypassing your router.
If this fixes the problem then there is a issue with the router.
Your best bets are to try updating the firmware on the router and or resetting the router to it's defaults.

If none of the above steps resolve your issue then try resetting your ps3 to it's system defaults. This will cause you to lose all your data so be sure to back it up first on a usb drive.

Please post a follow up to let me know how this goes for you.
If possible please rate the solution I have provided. Thanks.

My D-Link AirPlus Xtreme DI-624 Wireless Router all of a sudden doesn't power up when I plug it in. I've tried other wall outlet on the outside chance that the outlet I tried doesn't work, but to no avail....

Base from the description of your problem that the router wont even power ON this can be cause by several reason , like the power outlet is bad and since you already tried a different power so that is not the problem, this can be a problem with the power cable that you have so if possible for you to try a different power cable to test the router that will be good and if still wont power ON using a different power cable the router is already dead and needs replacement.

Only the printer led is lit

Are there any lights on? If not, then have you checked the power supply, and the wall sockets. Sounds like that may be your problem?

Power went out and now nothing with my router..WGR614. Everything else is okay but router is not powering up, although I can hear a small buzz coming from the router when I plug it in

Do a hard reset while it is plug in. Unplug for 5 seconds then check if it will turn on. If this will not work try to plug it on a different power outlet or use different power adapter with same specs.

1. Try different cable if possible.
2. Check the network port of the laptop. Make sure the pins are in tact and there is no dust/dirt or anything blocking the port.
3. Verify the other end as well. Check the hub/modem/switch or whatever you are plugging into. Make sure it's securely plugged in.
4. If plugging into a router, make sure you aren't plugged into the Uplink or Modem port. If it's a simple 4 port hub, avoid plugging into the uplink port as well.
5. If you have a cable modem that plugs into a router then into your computer, test by powering everything down. Plug the laptop directly into modem's ethernet port. Turn power on to modem. Turn power on to laptop. Check your network light and test internet. If it works there's something wrong with router. If it doesn't, look to the cable for issues.
6. Lastly, if none of those steps worked, remove the ethernet driver and reboot laptop. Let Windows detect the ethernet card, then re-install the driver choosing to overwrite the existing. Know that Windows will tell you you're device is ok just because a driver loaded successfully. It doesn't always know if the driver is the correct one.
