Microcell No Power HULU?

My hulu started buffering slowly (and not at all) last night. I went to reset on the wireless router and cable modem this morning and noticed that my ATT 3G (white) microcell tower had no power lights on. I tried plugging Microcell into a different wall outlet, still no lights. Is the problem with Microcell disrupting my internet tv service?

@Oberlin - No, especially if you didn't have any issues before.  It sounds like there was in interruption in your service (power, update, whatever) and whenyou power cycled everything, the MicroCell failed. You have a white MicroCell, which is an older model, and plugging it into a different outlet indicates no power so I would suspect that the ac adapter has, or is failing. You can test it with a voltmeter. It should read 16VDC +/- 0.5 with no load. If not, replace it with a new one of the same rating and see if your MicroCell comes back to life.
