Hi, my router suddenly stop working, I conected the Power supply this is the status of the lights: Power ON led is off, the DMZ led is off, WLAN is off and the internet led blinks sometimes during booting, the 4 Ethernet leds are solid on, the router seems to be turned off, but there is not response when reseting the router neither when pressing the Cisco Systems boton. If I run the dianostic from my laptop it says that there is nothing connected. I already proved the Power Supply line and the DC adaptator and it is ok, so it should be an internal problem any sugestion before to proceed opening the router? Thanks

Please make sure that Power, Internet and Wireless Light (or LAN light if trying to connect with Ethernet cable) is there on router if you are trying to connect it wireless .
And if only Power light is there only.Please try to power cycle the router ( turn off the router from power supply wait for a minute, plug the power supply back) and then again check the light status.
Even after this if same light status is there please try to reset the router ( there will be small pinhole button on the back side of router) just press it for 15 seconds and then release it.Wait for 2 mins and check the light status again.
It will fix your problem.
Log in to the router and check that the WPA/PSK encryption ID or passphrase is still stored. If you have reset the router it may be that the encryption passphrase has been lost and will require to be re-entered. If you cannot remember it it may be possible to obtain it from the properties/settings dialog box on one of the wifi cards on your home computers.
Also check if the power light on your router is blinking. If it is blinking, that's an indication of hardware failure. To revive it, do a hard reset. Press and hold the power button of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power. Wait for 30 seconds again before you plug it back in.
the wall plug type power supply (made in China) may be likely bad.
This actually is a switch mode power supply very unlike the old and usual linear power supplies. It is common the capacitors used in this supply are under rated and do not last very long.
The problem usually seen with dim LED lights on the unit, limited range and intermittent operation.
Try to find a replacement power supply with perhaps higher current rating.
if it is the power suplly issue you could pick up a replacement power cord at radio shack I had the same issue with mine only I was in a rush and picked up a adjustable power supply from radio shack and taped the power tip to the router with 3m electrical tape corrected problem no more power lose. good luck hope this helps
-- who is your internet service provider -- what is the operating system of your computer? -- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router
you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router
Step 1: Shutdown the computer. Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable. Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds. Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable. Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable. Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings Step 7: test the Internet connection.
if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router
