Hi, I am using a tp-link router which is connected wireless with my laptop. Yesterday i was using it and it was working fine when suddenly it switched off without anyone touching it. Now the router isn't switching on and i changed the electric plug, resetted it etc.. The modem is working fine though. Could you help pls?

If the power light doesn't come up on the router then its a hardware problem...try plugging in any other device to the same power socket to eliminate the issue with the power socket....Try a hard reset on the router, if you have backup of the router configurations...If this problem is ruled out then you might have to replace the hardware...
