Is it plugged into an outlet controlled by a switch? Maybe the switch is in the off position.

Are there any lights, especially the power light (is it blinking green and amber or is it solid green) showing on the router when you power it up and turn it on?

(A blinking green and amber power light indicates corrupted firmware in the router which may be rectified by reinstalling the firmware).

If so which lights are on?

If not have you got a compatible known working power adapter to see if it works with it.

(see image , select for your location - they are all 12V DC 1A output only the input varies to suit your location - make sure that the DC plug is compatible with the router as well)

If there is still no light indications at all with a new adapter then there is a problem with the power circuits in the router.

On my charter modem, all lights are on except the power light. Is it possible it is on and the light is just burnt out. Thanks


Hi @ skellsfam,

Is the modem working OK, i.e. can you access the internet or your email servers etc?

Can you access the modem's User Interface OK?

If the answer to both of the above is yes then there is a good chance that the modem's power light is faulty, possibly due to a bad connection to the light somewhere in the modem, as it is unusual for LED lights to fail. (although it can happen).

What is the model number of your modem?

If the answer to the above is no, it may be that the modem is locked up somehow, if so try resetting it by operating the reset button which on most modems is located under a pinhole in the back of the modem case. (don't know your modem so I'm only guessing it is the same)

If it resets OK you'll have to re enter all your ISP relevant settings again
