      Sky NETGEAR Router prob, its dead !

      Switched on PC and no router

      NO power light but numbers 1,2,3,4 come on briefly when powered up,

      reset box (switch at back)
      voltage on psu shows about 16v no load
      connected the psu to another 12v device and it worked
      connected a working 12 psu to the router and same problem,
      ethernet card shows green light with cable plugged in, as does the router
      no lights at all

      rang sky, talked me through everything and there sending me a new router (10 days)

      now questions

      1> does it sound like router is knacked
      2> only had it for 2weeks any known problems ?
      3> could it be something on the line or duff ethernet card kNACKERING IT

      any other advice ?

      thankxs
