Netgear router problem

  1832bchs 15:51 15 Jul 2005

I have been using a Netgear MR814v2 Wireless cable router with my Blueyonder connection for 2 years with no problems. Yesterday I unplugged all cables on my machine to move it to another location. Since then I cannot get the router to access the internet, which I find strange as when I had a new machine I just plugged it in and away it went .
I have pinged the problems. But I cannot access the router to set it up. It has the latest firmware and I have tried all the suggestions on the Netgear support pages.
Has any one got any ideas, before I consign the router to the dustbin?

Have you seen this?
they are having problems with the wireless connection though. click here Looks like this router has a life expectancy of 2 years.

Has your warranty expired?

Of course it has!!!!!
Have solved the problem by throwing it in the bin. Will buy a new one.
