    I have the issue.....of course it starts with the wife...but either way my router won't power on...I tried another adaptor from my modem, and I saw the lights come on....unfortunately the the router is 5v and the modem is 12v so it appears something else may have burned....but either way power did make its' way through...so apparently it maybe just the adaptor plug/wire and I'll try and see if that can be ordered.

    I have had 2 linksys routers that have had power cords/adapters go "bad" after only about 8-9 months. According to Linksys, the warranty for a router is only 6 months. Pretty pathetic warranty. No wonder it isn't listed on the box. The only reason I no longer use the previous router is that it wasn't wireless, and now that we are wireless I'm purchasing a second, generic power cord so we can get back online. I hate to waste the $80 spent on the router and just jump to another brand so I'll just moan and complain about having to buy a $15 replacement and tell everyone I can. haha

Could it be that the power adaptor is burned?
Use another one.

I have a 55" Panasonic flat screen that won't turn


Try disconnecting all of your HDMI cables and plugging the power cord of the TV into another wall outlet. If this resolves the issue, you may have had a small power surge from either your wall outlet or one of your source devices. It is recommended to connect your TV to a surge protector if you haven't done so already.

Try to unplug the power adapter from the printer.

Then unplug the power cord from the power outlet. Wait at least 10 seconds before re-plugging the power cord into the power outlet in the wall (bypass any power strip) and the power adapter into the printer. This will give enough time for the printer to reset itself. If printer won't automatically turn on, press the power button. If that doesn't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Hi. My Belkin wireless pre-n has no power, no lights. Tried different power adapter and reset, but no lights. Mark


If you cant get power to it try another power adapter with same amps if that dont work its most likely shot its most likely a diode if you can solder you can take it apart and with ohm meter figure out the one that is burnt most likely be better off purchasing one,

Has no power


1. Check to see if there is an on/off switch on the router. If there is then turn the router on.
2. If it doesn't have a switch or you've turned it on and nothing happens then you should check your
wall outlet to make sure you have power. You can test it by plugging in a lamp or other small electrical
device.
3. If the outlet is working, check your surge protector (If you are using one.) the same way you checked
the wall outlet.
4. If the surge protector is working, then check the wiring of the router power supply. Look for any
damage like nicks or breaks in the plastic shielding. If it is damaged it will need to be replaced. These
can be purchased at electronics stores like Radio Shack. They may be available at Belkin.
5. If there is no damage you have a few choices to make:
a. Replace the power cable. This may or may not solve your problem but if it doesn't work with a new
power supply then the router itself is defective/broken.
b. Return the router for repair or replacement. If you have a valid warrenty then this is a good choice
otherwise you will have to pay for the repair/replacement.
c. Purchase a new router. If this is an older router, over 2 or 3 years old, it may be a good time to
upgrade.

Wireless light will lit up only if any wireless computer is connected to Belkin's wireless network.

My belkin router wont light up?


  1. Try plugging the router to a different power outlet.
  2. Reset the router.
  3. Check the power adapter specification of your router and if you have another power adapter that has the same specification then try that power adapter to your router.
  4. If using another power adapter and your router will not power on still, it is possible that your router is faulty already.
Hope this helps!

Belkin problem


Try other power outlet first. If the router have a power off and on button, then switch it on. Check the router power specs. If you have other device with the same power specs, try it out. If it is still within the warranty of Belkin, try to have the router replaced by them.
