Router is about 2 years old. All lights are off. Power source is connected to a surge protector which is producing power to other components. I have no way of telling whether the power adapter is dead or the router is dead. The adapter is warm when plugged in.

Is there a way to have it checked out or repaired? I just ordered a Wireless-N router, but I hate to throw the Wireless-G away on principle.

if you can find an adapter with the same type of plug and the same power ratings (they're usually written on the big part of the adapter) you could try using it to see if it's the adapter...other than that there's no real way of telling if it's the cord or the router

Thanks for the reply. I expect when my Wireless-N arrives today it will have the same power source and I can check it out. I was just wondering if these things can be repaired. Nothing on Linksys web site addresses anything but warranty work.

When something like this dies, it's usually far quicker (and cheaper) just to replace it than have the original repaired. Plus the replacement will probably be far superior in some way or another to the dead one anyway.
