Unable to connect to WNDR3300 on 192.168.1.1

Hi,

I had the WNDR3300 set up fine and running for years.
There was a power failure recently and it stopped working after that.

I have very little knowledge of networks and network equipment, so I will try my best to describe the situation.
After the power failure, the internet light turned amber, the wireless indicator lights corresponding to 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz stopped glowing and the blue light on top does not show any activity.

I am unable to access the Router on 192.168.1.1 either.

I am able to access the internet by connecting the cable directly to my laptop.

Do I have a hardware failure?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

First is to hard reset the router and try again

Thanks for the response June.
The reset does not seem to happen at all. I held the reset button pressed for different periods of time ranging from 10 seconds all the way to 40 seconds but nothing happened.
Hardware problem you would say?

Before you give up and junk it you might try holding the reset in with adapter plug removed.

The goal is to drain any charge in caps. Not in manual but if it does work you have nothing to loose.

Usually that works on power button PC to drain but uncertain that it will

Capacitor on these router is small so with power and ethernet cable unplugged , leaving for 15-3in is adequate to drain by itself

Thanks for all the suggestions guys!

I tried the 30-30-30 hard reset technique with no luck. Absolutely nothing happens on the Router.

In the meantime, I have ordered another Wifi Router.
I'll know for sure (next week) if this one is out.
