Technicolor TG588vv2.


Symptoms: No light / No Wifi connection


I turned it off and on again- no change.

I reset the router (pressing in the micro switch)- no change.


Ran a scan on the router using Avast it stated it as 'secure'.


Any ideas?



I've yet to contact the provider as its late and just off to bed.

Best you can do if this is an ISP furnished router is to be sure the router is getting power to avoid getting hit with an idiot charge when techs show

up to repair/ replace. Check for blown fuse (or plug some other appliance into outlet to check), loose power adapter and power plug at router.

what type of internet does your isp supply? dsl, cable, wireless dsl?


depending on the type of service, resetting the router could have dumped your ISP login information that may be required if it's a pppoe account.

Some routers have a physical switch to turn WiFi on or off.  Perhaps it's been accidentally moved?


EDIT - see page 8 of manual for location of Wireless button. http://c7942337.myzen.co.uk/routers/zen/technicolor/TG588V_V2/TG588V_V2-manual.pdf


Alternatively you can turn it on and off via the Web interface.
