      Which router do you have ? Not sure about the V2 but a hard reset of the V1 or a fw upgrade will revert it back to standard settings.

      Chri,
      Have a look in the router log and see if anything is reported.

      Could have been the fw update then ? Do you know what it was running previously ? You will be able to see what its running now.
