Hopping someone can help me with this and that my router is not fried.
All is original, no firmware updates done to it. All of a sudden all lights on the front started to randomly blink.
I cannot get wireless or wired connectivity to the router. I figured that I might flash it, but when connecting to the LAN Port, my PC NIC status states "cable not connected". I tried all 4 ports and also tried to reset the router by holding the reset button for at least 30 sec (held it for about 1 min) and still nothing happens and lights keep blinking.
Is there any way that I can get to it to try to flash/reset it or is it toast?
I appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks for the quick reply Matt.
I will give that a try when I get home. Also, should I continue holding the reset button while the power cable is disconnected. Also, do I need to keep holding when putting the power cable back in (if yes, for how long)?
Again, appreciate all the help.

I got a chance to try your suggestion, but unfortunatly it did not work.
After the reset, the lights are still blinking randomly and I cannot ping the router from any of the ports.
by the way I manually set PC's IP to 192.168.1.3 and tried to ping 192.168.1.1. Also, tried to use tftp, but it is not finding the router.
Is my router fried or do I still have some hope?
