router dead

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
we used to have a different internet provider and none the less the installers were idiots. we live across from a bigger neighboorhood so we cant get cox or anything but anyway there was an antenna on top of our house and they didnt ground it and every now and then you could here a static pop inside the router. well we had a thunderstorm one night and it killed the router. But when it is plugged up all the lights come on showing everything is connected but you cant connect to the internet. Linksys wants a 150 bucks to send it in and get it fixed. it was a very expensive router. Is there something inside i can fix or do i have to send it to linksys? Is there any other info you guys need about it? thanks!

sounds like it is fried... do you have another router to test that it's not your connection?

you might want to to post the exact name and version of router...

I'd buy a new or used router before sending it in for 150 ...

I'd call the ISP and indicate that a potential improper installation caused customer premise equipment to fail.

That router isn't even worth $100 anymore, I'm not sure if you will be able to get the ISP to accept responsibility but don't repair it regardless. Upgrade to a Cisco linksys e4200 (Newer model of the wrt610n) BTW what was this antenna on the roof connected to? what kind of antenna was it? why were ISP techies touching it?

Well, my WRT610N died recently and after looking at quite a few options, I came down to two: Netgear N900 (really new but hard to get your hands on) and the Cisco Linksys E4200. I got the E4200 and have noticed a nice speed boost with giganews (11MB/s down now instead of 8-9ish) and I'm using a 100/2 connection. if you're using a connection slower than 30mbit down, any router will do the job fine
