Do you have a multi-meter? You can test the power supply to make sure it's putting out the proper voltage, if it's junk you could get a replacement, but if the talkbroadbox is bad, then you're looking at replacement. If the power supply is good, plug it into the Broadtalk box and when it's inserted try putting a little, very little pressure on the connection at the box in a circular motion. Sometimes the poles that connect the power plug into the main bord can break, if they have, you could probably have it seviced, unless you know how to do that, but if you don.......DON'T. You don't need a fire because you wanted to save a couple of dollars. Also check the cable from the power converter to the connector, make sure it isn't cut or show any excessive wear and tear. Ping 192.168.1.1 then internet speed test

First, make sure that your power source is functional. Hopefully, by switching to another power source, the router will turn on and you will not need to fix anything with the router itself.

If the router is at fault, the power port may be damaged or you may need to replace your LEDs. Check the repair manuals and the Troubleshooting Guide for help.

Verizon EOL’d the MI424WR in 2015 and you’ve probably been paying maintenance fees for quite a few years. Their current lease router is the Greenwave FiOS-G1100. While I dont recommend this because you’re taking a chance the tech will confiscate it, you may be able to get one from a grandfathered contract where there was a 1 year lease clause on paper. The newer contacts after this came out no longer have it, so it’s up to the rep. In addition, the leased ones requiring returns are flagged as unreturned equipment and will be confiscated. If you want the sanctioned lease model from Verizon, buy it new directly from Verizon. However, it isn’t uncommon for them to write the old ones off as customer owned, so it may not cost you anything to keep.

Your best bet is to get a nice 802.11ac router on the open market, especially if you don’t need phone service and can pick from the more common non-eMTA options. If you need a phone, you will need an eMTA combo unit or a dedicated cable modem like the Surfboard and a dedicated router.
