I have a D-Link DGL-4100 wired router for my home network. Connected are desktop PC, laptop, Apple Airport Express (which provides iTunes playback through my home stereo and also provides wireless access), and a Hauppauge Media MVP media player. Internet is through DSL modem.

This setup was working perfectly until recently when some stormy weather went through and we lost power. When the power returned, there was no connectivity through the router. No internet, no laptop-to-desktop, no media, no nothing. I have tried resetting the router, rebooting everything. I followed the specific setup instructions included with the router. But I can't seem to get it working.

The lights on the router all appear as they should. However, the router docs say I should be able to access the router at http://192.168.0.1, but when I type this address into my browser, it does not connect.

I'm trying to determine if the router is fried, or if I simply lost some settings somewhere when the power went out. Any advice on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated.

When resetting everything did you turn the modem on first, then the router, then the computers?

Yes, that is the order I turned everything on as per the instructions that came with the router.

If even laptop to desktop doesn't work then it doesn't look good for the router. Are you getting an address (via DHCP) from the router on your devices ? Can you see the other devices at all in your network neighborhood (or equivalent for your OS) ? If not, the switch chip is probably fried on the router. Time for a technology upgrade.
