    My lights flickered and my modem router also flickered. Ehen it came back on there was no internet access but the wifi worked. Tried all the standard reset and power off trouble shooting criteria but nothing works. Please help.

    Call your ISP to see if they have a problem in your area. If they are generally OK ask what they "see" about your connection.

    Let's see if I understand this: you can get on the internet through wifi but you can't get connected by being plugged into the modem/router?

    If that is the case, you might need to reset the modem and router. Sometimes a brownout can cause the DHCP to "lose" the IPs it hands out.

    I can't help if you are using a gateway (modem and router in one). I've only reset a 2 unit setup with a separate modem and a router attached to the modem.
