Hello

Yes, this is most probably the case. If you are very lucky you might have only damaged the firmware, but, it is a long shot. Have a look if a firmware upgrade does the trick, otherwise, sorry man.

Let me know if you found this helpful.

Kind regards
Andrea

3. replug the power cord to the modem

for best results, wait approx. 30 seconds before re powering the devices.

I cannot connect to my wireless network.


Try choosing the option "Repair" in your task bar. If that doesn't work, most of the time simply unplugging and replugging in your router from the power supply will do the trick.

Wireless connectivity suddenly lost


Have you tried power cycling the router and the modem? if not:

1. Turn off your modem and router by unplugging the power cord at the back of the devices.

2. Disconnect the Ethernet cable from the modem to the router vice versa

3. After a minute, replug the power cord at the back of your modem then reconnect the ethernet cable at the back of the modem as well.

4. After a minute, replug the power cord and the ethernet cable at the back of your router.

5. Try to test the connection.

Warning: You can reset the router if you know that you can reconfigure it back to connect to the internet. If you don't know how to set the router back to connect to the internet, it would be ok to you to not to do step 6.

6. If it didn't work, You can reset the modem. Press the reset button at the back of your router while it's turned on, wait for 15 seconds after that, unplug the power cord at the back of the router while the reset button is still pressed, wait for 15 seconds after that, replug the power cord at the back of your router while the reset button is still pressed, wait for 15 seconds again then release the reset button after 15 seconds.

7. Reconfigure your router's settings to communicate to your modem. ( I don't know if you have cable internet connection, but if so, you can just clone the mac address of your modem to connect to the server, if you are using DSL if it's asking for a username and passowrd, just use the PPPoE type of configuration in your router)

8. If it failed, try to update the firmware of your router.

Check your cables in machine especially the one that looks like an oversized phone cord. (cat5). Unplug replug.

If you have cable modem power down along with any wireless router power cable modem up first wait 30 seconds to 1 minutes. Then power router on

If it is dsl just unplug and replug the dsl modem and any attached routers plug in dsl modem first then plug in router if applicable.

Lost my connection to wire less router , the phones were down last week and after that we have to plug into router


powercycle your homenetwork. this step works 90% of the time. to powercycle your homenetwork, shut pc down, unlpug the power cable from the router, then unplug the power cable from the modem. give atleast 10 -15 seconds for your devices to refresh the connection. then in turning them back on, replug the power cable for the modem first, with for the sync light be turn solid, replug power cable for the router, then turn pc on.. try pulling up websites, you should be online now. just in case you still can't, bypass the router and connect the modem straight to the pc first. try connecting online, if you can't configure the modem to go online, once done, connect the router back to the equation and reconfigure its settings. you the should be up and running. i can help more if you'll tell me what's the modem and the router..
