netgear wireless probs

  LivEviL 20:16 21 Oct 2006

righto iv got a netgear router/modem its a netgear DG834GT the wireless has suddenly stopped working!

every thing is set up as it should be iv been using it for about 10 months! and its been fine only the odd loss of connection!

but now the little wireless led on the router isnt flashing only for a second on power up and from the wireless devices no network is there! when i go into the routers setup screen ( it says there isnt anything connected is there any way of fixing it? i have checked the arial! do you reckon there mights be a wire dislodge or somthing? im an electronics engineer so i can solder mostly anything!

many thanks xXLivEviLXx

Guess you have tried disconecting the router for a while then reconnecting.

also have you tried resertting your router using the reset button at the back?

Listen for a buzz from your router could be a cap on its way out.....i.e transmitter side on its way out

Also check the power supply voltage (12v)
