Question about Computers & Internet
Possibly the powersupply for the router is dead. Find another powersupply with same voltage output to try OR test the output tip with a meter. If the power supply does work then your router is dead. Replace it. If there is no power (5 volts or 12 volts etc) coming from the tip of the power supply adaptor then replace the adaptor / power supply.

Try to unplug the router and hold in reset button for 30 seconds see if that works, you probably did that already, But if you can get your computer to respond you should be able to open software Bios. and do your firmware update from there. If not I believe a hard reset is with the router plugged in and holding reset button for 30 seconds, I don't know I sure hope that resets it for you. Thanks take care

Hey Raj - Unplug your modem and router. After 60 seconds plug your modem back in. When the lights return to normal (except the activity light) , plug your router back in. Give it 10 seconds and try it. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If not, DO NOT RATE YET. Just add a comment letting me know what happened and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

Try to power cycle your modem and the router for 2 minutes and If your Arris modem has a battery back up on it you must remove it in order to refresh the settings on it.
Keep in mind that after the cycle period you must turn On first the modem and make sure all lights of it are completely stable before powering up the router.

if you mean you plugged the power chord of your modem, into your router, your router's toast. your modem had POE enabled for some reason, your router's toast. if you stuck your ethernet cable (cat-5) into your usb port on accident, your router's toast. if you read your manual and properly did a MASTER reset on your router then there's really no hope. there's not much hope to begin with routers are frale things. but in spirit of fixing the router assumeing it's a family herloom or something, you can bring it to an electronics repair shop they will then estimate the repair cost soldering wil be done if repars are made.......quite costly. unless you know how to solder in witch cae you'll konw what i mean when i sat the board's probably fried.

NOTE: It is
advisable to connect the computer to one of the Ethernet (1, 2, 3 or 4)

successfully configured the router using a wireless computer, unplug the
Ethernet cable which connects the computer to the router for you to
have wireless Internet connection. For instructions on how to connect
the wireless computer to go online using the Linksys router, click here.
Make sure the power adapter is plugged in to an available power outlet.
