The cause is the power-supply "brick" to the DI-514.
It has failed.

So, it's time to buy a "surge-suppressor" (sometimes integrated into a high-end power-bar) and to buy a new router, for less than $80, in total, to be protected and be ready for the "next" storm.

Had a lightning storm,now brand new aircon wont restart,remote is ok

The electrical storm may have caused a power surge and burned out the circuit board. Especially, if the power went out briefly and then came right back on. Most manufacturers recommend turning the unit OFF during a power outage/electrical storm.

Hope this helps you.

Wireless router

That will depend in its just the power adapter that got friend there is still a big possibility that the router will work with a different power adapter but if the router also got damaged during the storm. Then there is nothing that we can do about it. you will need to get a new one.
