How do I know if my router is truly dead?
My WRT54GL router stopped working a couple days ago. If I wire directly to the modem, my internet is fine.
If I connect the router to the modem and try to connect wirelessly it has the (!) on the wireless symbol and tells me I have no internet access. When I try and go to a website it gives me a DNS error. It was working fine a couple days ago and I didn't change any settings.
I had DD-WRT firmware flashed on it. I did a complete reset and it didn't help. So today I flashed it with the newest Linksys firmware and still nothing.
What are some tests I can do to know if it is dead?
BTW, Linksys tech support is absolutely terrible. All they did was try and sell me a new router, it reminded me why I usually never call tech support to begin with.
