ok, i just woke up, and no internet connection. hmmm, look at router...

My jaw drops... Power plug in, but no power light. 1 ethernet port used, all 4 ethernet ports light up. Status off, WAN on. i remove all but the power cable, and the lights stay the same.

ive tried resetting it, holding the reset button, pressing the reset button rapidly, with power in/power out (im getting desperate here).

tried a few internet searchs that come up with nothing. the DLink page sucks too.

the router is completely unresponsive. im about the try the old hammer trick, but before i do, is there a remedy you guys are aware of?

ill take it to a friends house for bashing then.

any suggestion on what to replace it with? i was reasonably happy with it until now. it did need the occasional power down when the wireless connection kinda dropped out, but it worked just fine otherwise.

keep in mind im from australia so probably dont have the latest stuff thats in the US =P id rather just get it from a store, and it will need to support up to 12ppl max with a reasonably fast wireless connection (even though the major limiting factor is ppls wireless cards). i like to lan with my friends sometimes =)

i'd say either dlink or linksys (i prefer linksys because their owned by cisco)...i don't really have a need for most home networking equipment..as i've got one machine at home...and at work...i use corporate level equipment...because of the size of my network...
