We have recently purchased a brand new Belkin wireless/g router model F5D7230-9. Version 9000zh.
After getting it configured and having it run successfully for about a month it crashed (DHCP, Wifi and it's internal webserver all inaccessable). It seems to have bricked itself.
Pressing the reset button doesn't do anything. Holding the reset button in for the requisite 10sec+ doesn't do anything. Holing it down for 60sec or more doesn't do anything. Letting the unit cool down over night and trying again doesn't do anything. Holding the reset in while powering up doesn't do anything.
Searching around the web, this seems to be a common problem. But none of the suggestions I found have worked - one such suggestion was opening the unit and shorting the caps holding charge on the nvram - which I tried - thereby voiding the warranty. It still didn't reset to factory defaults.
Is the unit now a doorstop?
