    My Router Has Died (Any Help ?)

    Yesterday we had a few powercuts at home and for the rest of the day and thismorning it was very slow and unstable and then after lunch it finally packed up and while it will switch on and power up when it tries to connect to teh internet it doesnt work and stops the landlines connection :@

    Anyone got any suggestions to what it could be while im at my aunties as how it could be fixed before i go out and buy a new router tomorrow but i dont kno how long ill be on for.

    I'm assuming you've got ADSL from your message.

    I don't know whether you're familiar with the OSI model or not but by the sounds of it a good place to start is layer 1, the physical layer. Try swapping your micro filter on the modem/router with a new one and if that doesn't work try a different cable (although if it's a result of power surges I doubt the cable is the problem).

    If it's interrupting the landline a guess might suggest a problem with the micro filter. Someone else might be able to offer a deeper insight into the problem than me.
