    I got up this AM and had no Ethernet on my computer, wife's laptop (wireless) OK, Roku (ethernet) OK. I couldn't connect to router even after changing NICs, cables. wife's laptop won't connect via ethernet (fine w/ wireless).
    Tried 30-30-30, no change. Can't get into router 'cause it's set to "nowireless admin"
    The strangest thing is the Roku continues to work on the ethernet.
    I've got K26USB-128.7493MIPSR2-Toastman-RT-Ext.trx that was working fine for weeks.
    Is there any other way to reset the router or clear nvram without assess to the router?

    Got it to come up with a TFTP reload.

    No, it was just that the wired lan was down.
    Could reach the internet on wireless and a wired Roku, but everything else wired wouldn't connect.
    Got it going again with the restore button and a tftp upload.

    I would flip it so that you can get to the admin page via wireless, just in case it happens again. That way you'd be able to figure out what the heck is going on instead of scratching your head (surprised I don't have a bald patch on the side of my head from all the scratching).

    Set a strong password for admin, just in case someone gets on your network (mixed case plus numbers and special characters).
