Goodbye, old wireless router

I bought some new speakers to replace the speakers that died on me the other day. Fortunately, I had the patience to just drive a bit farther to Mwave to get my new speakers at a lower cost.

When I went to plug in the cord to the power strip, I knocked the power adapter to my D-Link DI-614+ wireless router out of its socket. After replugging the router back in, I looked at it only to find that none of the lights on the router were lit.

No way.

I unplugged it again, let it sit a few minutes, then replugged it back in. Nothing.


In a matter of three days, I had lost my speakers and my wireless router. You know, if I’m going to lose things, I’d wish the loss would be spread out over a period of time. Good grief…grief indeed.
