Hope someone can help me with this or I may need to go get a new router....hopefully not! I came in this morning and found I could not connect to the internet. I was getting a message that a network cable was unplugged. My connection is DSL and I have a Westell modem. I noticed the router was not blinking as usual and only had the power and diag lights lit up. I unplugged the ethernet from the router and plugged it directly to the computer and was able to connect. I then unplugged and powered down everything and started turning everything back on to try and reset, but this not work either. I did it in this order: powered down computer, then router, then dsl modem and let sit for a couple of minutes. Then I turned on power to dsl modem and waited until it set; then powered-up the router (still no lights on but power and diag), then turned computer back on. Still can't connect through router, but can through DSL modem. Thanks for anyones help!

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. The router may have lost its configuration. If you had saved a backup, you could reload it. If not, just try re-configuring it and see if you can get it to work. Refer to the owners manual should tell you how. If you don't have that, try going to the manufactures web page to get one.
