netgear router problems

Can anyone help?
I have a netgear wireless router which has worked fine for last year but i have lost the wireless connection to it. There is no wireless light on any more. the access point is enabled and i have tried resetting it.

I would uninstall the sofware(that is if you have the cd)and install t again. It might work. I have done the same with my bt router.

I expect it has had it (the lack of wireless indication gives it away) but you could try a firmware update

I agree with skidd.

But have you tried using a wired connection using an RJ45 patch cable (assuming that your pc/laptop has a network card/port)
If the wireless connection hasn't been stopped in the router settings then I would say that the router has failed.

Check out your warranty details. Netgear offer a 2 year warranty IIRC and are quite good with replacements I believe.

I have tried everything that you guys have suggested but i have now come to the conclusion it has had it!
Thanks to you all for your help
