It sounds like a hardware failure if there is a red light. Try this: Unplug the router, then hold down the "reset" button on the back with a pen or something for 15-30 seconds. Then plug it back in. If it still isn't working, then it is highly likely you'll need to get a new router.

I agree with RMT2 but perhaps it would be best to first try disconnecting the router from the domestic supply for about 20 seconds. If you happen to get away with it then you won't need to setup the router again. That still leaves you the reset option if necessary.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
