Well here I am back on the old faithful dial up due to my connection going down again (only the second time in 12 days mind). Same prob as before with '1' light not illuminating.
What i'd like to check with you good people on here is:-
1)When this problem occurs, as I can't see the LAN icon in network places is it worth my while trying to set up a new connection or will this just mess things up and reconfigure any part of the system?
2)Also as I'm presently using dial up and have connected the modem wire directly between the telephone socket and the PC modem how do you go about rebooting the router?Or is it a case of using dial up with the broadband connections still in place? I know there's probably a very easy answer to this second question but I just want to make sure that I don't do anything inadvertently. If you get my drift....

To reboot the router you would have to log in using 192.168.0.1 but as your 1 light is not lit I'm assuming you won't be able to do this. Have you tried pressing the reset button on the back of the router?

Cheers Mikey.I know I should have paid more attention before but was probably hoping that I wouldn't end up in this position.Can you give me the precise location of this so called reset button.Thanks.
I'm also assuming that you don't think the new connection idea is a good one then really.

It is the hole just under where the power cord goes in. Use a pen tip or an unfolded paperclip.
If you just want to reboot the router rather than reset it simply pull the plug out for a couple of seconds and then plug back in.

Try powercycling your modem, Leaving it off for around 2-5mins! It also usually sorts out any locking-up in your modem/router!

However, if you don't even have the link light try powering your system up with a floppy in the drive to stop windows from booting. If you still don't see the 1 light like this then you probably have a broken network card.

Thanks everybody.Whilst contemplating my navel (like all good ex-matelots do) I suddenly remembered a post where somebody said that they usually turn the power off to the router for approx. 60 - 90 secs when the router isn't detecting associated equipment. So I turned the hard drive off and did exactly this and hey presto this message is now coming to you at fast pace again.

FibreOptic m8.Once something like this has happened is it worth rebooting the router in the diagnostics section of the netgear site? BTW on your 100th post in 6 days!101st coming up shortly.
