with manufacturer version of firmware (unsure of which version) I have suddently lost all ability to connect wirelessly. The router does become visible intermittently through network connections but... anyway. Through the computer that is hardwired to the router and inherently to the AP I can access my routers configuration through 192.168.1.245, but can see no problems. It has been hard rest and powered down for a period of time as a dummy troubleshoot. All indication lights appear as they would when it is normally functioning. I've scanned the forums (searched) and did not see anything similar so I know ask... Is it dead?
