Here is my situation I've been searching the forums - and i can not find anything yet. So maybe someone can point me in the right direction. I have a WRT54G (actually i own 2 now and my parents have another one that i maintain for them - i love the linksys routers- they have never been a problem really configuring or using) Anywhoo - the first WRT54G that i got - back like 3+ years ago - is version 1.0 or 1.1 - it doesn't say but it does have the minipci in it. So yeah - it worked great at my parents house - then after a week of my mom and brother complaining that they could not get to the internet - and i could not figure out why cycling the power was not working and all - i finally went there. It turns out that the thing was dead - there was no way to talk to it ( i tried threatening it, bringing out the bat, begging it - it wouldn't reply!) It had no lights on So it now is at my place. sitting there waiting to be played with. I pulled it appart originally before realizing that there were forums about these routers. Because i heard about badcaps.com or whatever and read up on how there are so many bad capacitors out there - and that this could have been my problem.... I used a digital multimeter - and checked the power supply - and i'm getting 5 volts going into the unit (couldn't measure the amperage) I plugged it in again - with no caseing - and i listend - i heard a buzzing noise from one of two 16volt caps near the power input. There were no lights on - but i can still hear this buzzing noise. I then read the forums and heard people say that the power supply may be dead - and buy a new one. But its an old router - its not worth a $30 power supply from radioshack. So if i can't find a 5 volt 2+ amps power supply and solder on this connector. i don't know what to do. I cracked open the Power supply and do not see ANY signs of any problems - the caps all look fine - the board has no burn marks. Nothing. Where do i go from here? Thanks!
