Make sure the power adaptor you are using is the correct one for the router. the adaptor will be labeled with an output voltage, make sure it matches the label on the router. In the case that the router requires the typical 5-volts, and you have connected a 9-volt, you may have made a brick.

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

We have been using the Netgear router WPN824 for about 3 years and all of a sudden it stopped working. No flashing strobe lights - nothing. any suggestions?


Will it even power on at all ? If there are no lights at all make sure its plugged in securely. Maybe even try a different power outlet to see if the one you are using has not gone bad. If that still doesn't help then there is a chance that your router has failed. Being 3 years old it is possible. A failure can be from a power surge, storm, manufacture defect etc. In which case you will have to replace it. Sorry for the bad news.

Thank you for choosing Fixya,

Haven"t used in years need

The best brand in my opinion is a Linksys for customization. If you want easy, then try D-link or netgear.

Best of luck

Most Netgear wireless routers use 12 volt power adapters. The label on the Netgear shows the voltage input required.

Hi! I have NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router. I was using this for last 2 years. After I moved to new place this piece is not having the power ON. Not sure why

Try to hard reset the router. There is a pin hole at the back panel. Press and hold it for 30 seconds while it is power on. After doing so, unplug it from the power for 5 seconds then check if it will power on. If this will not work try to use a power adapter with the same specs.

No Power to my Netgear Rangemax Next Wireless N-Router WNR834Bv2

This happens from time to time with these routers. It happenned to me with a Linksys and I found that the power unit in the router failed. One thing you could do is try a couple of different wall sockets or see if another adapter might work. Is your Netgear new enough to get replaced by the store?

Netgear WGR614 Power light goes off.

I understad that you need to powercycle the router for it to work. In this case, please note that this indicates failure with the router hardware. The only thing you can do now is upgrade the firmware on the router. You may check for firmware updates by visiting the site below:

After uploading the firmware on the router, reset the router and reconfigure it.

If the issue persists ten the best bet for the router is to either get it replaced or trash it.
