Broadband issues

I currently don't have broadband at home.

The router I have is a Belkin F5D9630-4. The manual is here (PDF).

In normal operation it has 5 lights on. Power, one network port (there's only one PC connected), wireless, ADSL and Internet. Currently only the power and network port are lit.

When I try to get a wireless connection from my phone, the phone reports that the router is not in range. When I try to login to the router itself via the wired connection I get connection unavailable.

I've tried a hard reset, and a factory reset. I've tried swapping out the broadband filter, though not the RJ11 cable as I didn't have a spare.

Does anyone have any other suggestions to try, or am I right in thinking that, basically, I've got a dead router?

IF after the factory reset you've followed the setup instructions in the manual, and used the info from your ISP, then yes I think you have a dead router.

Haven't followed the instructions, as I basically couldn't even connect to the router itself to put the settings back.

I think it's definitely gone toes up. :(
