Recently I bought a DIR-605L wireless router. It was working fine for a week until the power went out. I have tried resetting it but now the wifi router won't work. However, the modem works fine. So now I have a reset wireless router that won't work when I connect my modem to it. I have tried resetting and rebooting everything but the problem remains. I have also tried troubleshooting countless times. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Wifi router: D-Link DIR-605L
Ver: B1

Modem: Cisco 2100

Computer: Dell
Program: Windows 10

When I lose power and things get confused, I pull the power plugs on the modem and router.
Then I plug in the modem and wait until all the lights are solid or flashing as they should be. When that is up, I plug in the power to the router and wait until those lights are showing correctly. Then I fire up a computer and see if it can find the internet. usually that's all it takes to get things working again.

Please give more of a description of the problem; "doesn't work" is insufficient.

Could have been surged when power came back on. I can also say I have had terrible experiences with D-Link equipment in the past and won't use them myself.
