all wires are plugged in...im about to try power but i thought maybe this could be important....the DSL cable (the slot has a label, only reason i know it's DSL) is connected to the black thing that tells me status, not the NETGEAR thing that has an antenna on it...is that right? i don't think anyone switched wires so it should be, just thought i'd mention
nice, the unplugging fixed it, thank you very much
so, is there any way to get this to stop happening? or should i just remember to unplug the router whenever i lose internet on MY (the one i just fixed) computer?
