|I can't get a valid IP address, it's almost as if the router isn't there. I do get that unidentified network / limited connectivity alert. But that's as far as it goes. I never get an ip address or the default gateway when I type ipconfig.|
I didnt update firmware. This happened immediately after the cable company sent a surge that made all the cable boxes pop & even knocked out my computer. The computer is fine (I can connect to the internet, so i know ethernet is working). But after that, the router went bricky on me. I tried reseting it, hoping it would knock out whatever kink is in there.
I've held the button in for 10 seconds, up to a minute. Still, nothing is responding.
