Default Wireless stopped working on Dlink DSL-2640T router

Hi there,
Sorry to make my first topic as a help request but fate has chosen !
I have Dlink DSL-2640T router, it was working for about 2-3 years in a row until last couple month, the WLan green light stops flashing after boot, and wifi is not detected by any computer.
I tried to reset settings to default, upgrade frimware to the latest version, but nothing is working, could it be a hardware problem ?
Best regards

I think I would replace the the table and probably the bit. If that doesn't work, buy a new one, a Festool 574342 would be a good choice. On the other hand, you could look for a forum about computer networking and routers, LOL!

In a word - yes.

I've replaced routers twice because they just stopped working. One was about 2 years old. My current router is a linksys (my prefered brand) and has been working fine for about 5 years now (longest time of all I've owned).

My advice - buy a new one. If it doesn't fix the problem, you can usually return it.

BTW - this is a woodworking forum for these kinds of routers:

It sounds like a hardware failure. I would replace it with a Linksys router, they have always been trouble free for me. I am also very pleased with my Motorola gateway. This is a woodworking forum but we try to help. One thing we have no solution for is operator headspace.

You should check out this link: Networking forum - Google Search

You might have better luck on a pure networking forum. Sorry we are a woodworking forum

OK, have you got it now? This is a WOODWORKING ROUTER forum, a forum for machines that spin little pieces of metal around very, very fast, and cut shapes in wood. Robert already showed you a picture.

Cheers,
Roger

I'm sure with the right bit this router will start flashing green, no problem! Though, frankly, Dlink routers are junk, I'd take my Bosch or Porter Cable over these any day ;^)
