Question about Linksys BEFSR41 Cable/DSL Router W/4 Port Switch, Retail Box (DSLSBEFSR41)
There are two things you can try, however if the router has recieved damage caused by a power surge it is probably cheaper to replace it than repair it if the resets don't work.
You can try a reset by unplugging and leaving unplugged for several minutes.
Check the routers configuration settings (especially if you have a static IP address) as a surge in power may have caused an unintentional reset of the device.
Failing that there should be a small pinhole with an indented button on the back which you can press and hold with a pen or paperclip and cause the router to reset to default settings.
Check the configuration again and make sure it is set up correctly for your network and your ISP
If you are having any trouble checking your configuration please tell me the following:
Static IP ?
Are you able to log into the routers homepage?
Are the lights on the router still behaving normally (turn off and on as devices are connected/disconnected)?
Hope that helps
