Re: belkin router just died? What do I do?
There are 2 possible cause of this problem;
First the router's power adapter is already busted if you happen to have a spare or another power adapter with the same output as the original one try it first before deciding to purchase a new one.
Second, the routers processor or the entire board insed the router is already shorted, if it is still under warranty(this model has a lifetime warranty according to the specifications) send it back to the store where you purchased it or to Belkin(some manufacturers and stores also provide replacement for faulty power adapters).

1. check the power to the router unit. 2. check with you ISP ( Internet Service Provider) to see if connectivity to your router was interrupted. You may have to reset the router. 3. here are some instructions to follow: 1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox) 2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window) 3.Note router name you are connecting to. 4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses. 5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser. 6.Note router name you are connecting to. 7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet. This is for all routers to set up wirelessly. 8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router
Check the power cord from the back of the router as well, it can come loose from the back. Secondly, try switching to a different outlet or port if using a power strip. sometimes one or two ports in a power strip can go bad
If no signal, check router config. Use your internet browser to look at router's settings. By default the password on most Belkin routers is left blank, and the default IP address is 192.168.2.1 Check all you router's wireless settings in case disabled or incorrect. Make sure the laptop's wifi button has been toggled to OFF. Routers do die - esp the lowend ones. New wireless G router = $20 on sale.
