disconnect the power cord from the wireless router and
leave it unplugged.

Landmark Wireless outdoor wireless antenna and check the
Ethernet cable connections as follows.

rectangular "Power Over Ethernet" (POE) power adapter
should be connected to either the Ethernet port directly
on your computer OR if you have a wireless router, it
would connect to the port marked "Internet" on the
wireless router. Sometimes this port on the router is
also named a "WAN" or "MODEM" port depending on your
brand of router. If you are using an Apple Airport
wireless router, this port is identified by a symbol
which looks like a circle of small dots next to that
port. Please check and make sure the plug is connected
firmly into the power adapter as well as firmly
connected to your computer or router.
