Question about 2wire 1800HG Router (RG1800HG00)
All 3 indicating lights are dead. However I checked the power supply and it is putting out 6 volts. Are there any internal fuses?
Your power adaptor might be faulty. Yes, you can measure to have 6 volts. But due to faulty electronic component in the power adaptor, the 6 volts will be dropped to a very low level due to "loading effect" when you connect to the router.
I had the same problem but could not find the original power adaptor. I replaced it with a 3rd party power adaptor. You must ensure that the 3rd party power adaptor can provide 6V output with minimum 2000mA (2 amperes) and correct connector size.

Are you using the same power adapter that came with the modem? output on it should read 5.1V. also try plugging it in other outlets; like the kitchen or bathroom, bypass all surge protectors and plug it straight into an outlet on the wall. if lights are still off, then that might indicate a defective modem. however, if one or 2 lights turn on after plugging it on another outlet, push the reset button at the back, hold it down for at least 30 sec. see if all 3 lights will turn on. if not, then you really have to replace it.
