I think my router has packed up

I've had a Netgear DG834GT router for approx 2 year.
Today I go to switch it on, and nothing. No lights. I have tried plugging it in diferent power sockets, but it still won't work.
Question is, is it the router itself or the cable.
It was working fine yesterday.

try a differant cable and see if it will work, if not then you have a problem with the router.

Check the date you bought it, I think Netgears have a 2 year warranty.

Thanks guys.
My son checked the cable and it seemed ok. Will open it (router) today and see if there is a fuse inside and replace and see what happens.

Don't open it if it could still be in warranty or you'll void it.

Yes I know, but I cannot find the reciept. I'm normaly organised with reciepts etc.

Check the power supply unit is supplying the 12-15 volts before opening the router

Check fuse in the plug also

Check fuse in the plug also,oops,is there a plug?

Thankfully I registered my original purchase with netgear, and even though I cannot find my reciept they have agreed to send me another one.
That is what I call GOOD service.
Anyway, thanks guys for your help.
I'll tick as resolved.
