I have purchased/implemented 100 Netgear FVS318 VPN firewalls. In two of the units (installed at the same location) there is no outside connectivity. The test mode blinks amber continously. A hard reset does not reset the unit. Is the problem due to a DC (y-cable connection) surge? Any help is greatly appreciated.

If you just plug it in - it should work. Are you using DSL or Cable - in either case just plug router WAN PORT into modem and then plug computer into and LAN PORTs on the router. Now configuring the unit is a different question
It probably has something to do with the fact that this particular model is not meant for personal use, but in big corporations. It does not support UPnP which allows possibly harmful programs that are accessing your router to auto configure the security settings on your router. If you got any more problems with your router, maybe you should check out this cool users manual. It really helped me a lot, maybe it will help you, too :)
The netgear prosafe VPN router is a high-end component ment for business and corporate use and does not support UPnP
UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) allows programs accessing your router (limewire, utorrent, etc...) to auto configure the security settings on your router which would be harmful to a business/corp. network.
Well, the issue is the router. Who owns the router? If it is yours, you need to call netgear for router setting assistance. if it is a company router, speak to the administrator, and stay off facebook while at work or School!
