Router will not power on

My router will not power on.  I reset the modem and nothing.  tried unplugging and plugging back in, nothing.  Is there anything i can do besides buy a new router?

   Is that accurate?  Not an R6200v2?  Look at the product label.

   Not even a flicker from any LED indicator?  Bad router?  Bad power
adapter?

   If the router is not functioning, then you can't have "reset the
modem".  You can press the button, but it can't do anything to a dead
router.  (Also, an R6200[vX] is a router, not a modem.)

   Test/replace the power adapter?

Re: Router will not power on

Yea i tested the power cord this morning its fine.  Strangest thing. It was working fine yesterday morning and a website said to reset it because i forgot my password so i did that.  Then i wasnt connected to the internet so i shut it off and when i went to turn it back on, it never powered back up...strange.

We still don't know what the LEDs on the router look like after you turn it on. Power LED in? Colour?

Just another user.
