See if all connections to and from the power supply are secure.
Confirm that the power outlet has power.
If the problem persists, power supply could be faulty.
2. Improperly Connected Cable/Damaged Cable:
If this problem arises in the router,the Internet LED remains off, you can troubleshoot this problem by :
Connectors at both ends of the cable must be properly and tightly connected.
See if cable is not physically damaged, if it is, then, order another cable from Cisco.
