Router issues after cat sat on it...HELP PLEASE

Hey
I'm wondering what to do.
our cat has a habit of sitting on the warm router and usually it takes internet 30mins to come back if it fails when he get's off.
Last night he did it but the internet has not come back since so im worried its now gone for good. I have tried unplugging it and back in again but no joy.
The 3 lights are on for power, broadband and internet but not ethernet and no wifi signal coming on.
Anything else I can try or will I have to get a new one ordered?
Thx  Crazy

love the site, haha Smiley
Oo, is that the black power button on the back? I'm guessing not, in which case he might have done. Where can such button be found - I'm at work currently so not next to my router

It's on the top, on the black strip, labelled Wi-Fi. To the right hand side of the lights.
