Question about Belkin (F5D72304F5D7000) Router
I suddenly lost internet connection on my home network, when I discovered that none of the 5 ports on the back are working. I can still access the router config through a wireless connection, but it appears that all 5 ports have been disabled. The odd thing is that all of the port lights are on even though there aren't any cables connected. Any thoughts on what might have happened and is there anything I can do? I'm assuming I'm going to need to get a new router, but am hoping there may be a way to fix it.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Unplug the router, wait 2 min, and plug it back in. If that work, on the back is a small hole, marked RESET. Using a pencil, or straightne out a large paperclip, press that the button inside gently. Hold it for 30 sec. Release and unplug the unit. Shut down the whole network. "Starting from the wall", power up the modem, wait 2 min, power up the router, and power up your machine. Your router should be at default now. Remember to reset you security, change the password, etc.
I have had to do this several times, sometimes unplugging the power, and plugging it back while holding the button. (Got 3 hand?)
Have you had a storm, or lightning issues lately? Sounds like it got a spike. Living the Florida, where lightning is very common, I have finally put my routers on a small UPS.
