Question about D-Link DI-704P Router
Just speaking from experience it doesn't even take a lightning storm for a DLink wireless router to go out. I had one blow up very similar to your situation a day or two after it was plugged. I replaced with a Linksys.
I hope you saved the reciept.

Probably fried the 10 ohm resistor in the device. Anytime you are connected to a phone line (or DSL) and there is a storm, there is the possibility that it will fry (destroy) the resistor that is put in your device as a fuse to keep from destroying the whole device and causing a fire. Unfortunately, in today's devices this is a surface mount resistor and is not replaceable by the general public. Your solution is to buy a new device OR open it up and replace the 10 ohm resistor (it will be where the large brown spot and funny smell comes from).
This is why they have phone line protection on most of the newer protective power strips. Could have prevented this from happening.
