Question about NetGear WNR854T Router (WNR854T100NAS)
Router stopped working. Broadcast signal light is not lit and 2 of the 4 ethernet connections do no light and the 2 that do are only yellow.
Yes...... it is a defective router completely. The components inside it are notorious for going bad. Thank goodness they will ship you another one (But you gotta pay something like $16 USD)... too bad it is the same exact router. UGH I'm sticking with Linksys. This darn thing was pretty expensive too..... Check www.netgear.com and read their forums and customer support sections. You guys (and myself included) are not the only ones this is happening to.

Just face it. This router is one of the worst of it's kind. Alot of people worldwide are experiencing the exact same problem.
Netgear will keep sending you a new one, but it will crash again and again and again. If you are not into N yet.. go for the WPN824 MIMO router. This one is excellent!!!

Weird--same problem! Just out of the blue. Cable modem connection to the internet it fine; right now I'm just connecting the modem directly to my computer. When the modem is connected to the WNR854T router though, only the power light is on. I've checked the cable connections and they're fine.

Please check your cable connections; are the lights blinking? try connecting your computer directly to the modem dsl port that is connected was to the router if connection can be restored.
