Asus AC3100 was working perfectly until the last power outage. Since then, when switching on, only the WAN led and the ones to its right first flash. The LAN-1, USB2.0 and WPS leds light up in a very faded manner. I tried accessing the GUI via LAN but could not find the IP. Any recommandations or guidance would be appreciated.

It reads 19.3 V, which is fine... but thanks
That means almost nothing. You need to to check how much power it is outputting amps, watts etc. A bad power supply can be putting out the correct voltage but little power.

You'll be lucky if the power supply only took the hit. Asus uses high main power supply voltage and multiple DC-to-DC step down converters to power different circuits on the PCB. Routers like AC5300 have 10 inside. Some of them burn for unknown reason.

Thanks for your help guys. I bought a new router... and I will open this one up as a little project eventually... maybe :)
