Belkin Router malfunctions after firmware upgrade

Hi,

Mine is a Belkin Router F5D7230-4. I encountered some network problems after I upgraded the firmware from Belkin.com. But when I tried to revert back to previous state using the saved user.conf, I got the error msg that the file is corrupted. Then I selected reset to factory settings, still did not work. Then I pressed the reset button on the router itself, I got really screwed. Now, I can't even do http to the router. The 'connected' light as well as the 'WLAN' light just keeps on blinking.

Please help if you have an idea on how should I proceed. At this point, I'm willing to try everything.

Thanks again.

The one,

Thanks for the help. You had pointed me at the right direction.

I retried the hard reset, but still does not work. That's when I lookep it up and found out that I could also hold the reset button for 5 seconds and it will go back to factory settings. And it did the trick. The router is working again.

Thanks again for taking the time to reply.

Regards.
