Netgear WNR2000v3 -- won't connect to modem

Cheers,

I have a Netgear WNR2000v3 router .

A few days ago, this router stopped talking to my modem. Power cycling, trying a new firmware version, changing channels, trying to use it as a switch (as opposed to a router) have all yielded no results.

Does anybody have any experience or advice on what I can do to fix my problem?

I'll try anything at this point -- I'm not ready to have bought a $50 brick.

Best,

What is the brand and model of your modem?

WNR2000v3.

I'm pretty sure it's a brick. It refuses to get an IP address from my modem still.

Netgear has a lifetime warranty.

Just to be thorough, Did you try Power-Cycling the MODEM as well AS the Router itself?
Many Modems must be Power-Cycled in order to release/renew the MAC Address mapping of the device directly connected to it's LAN port (IE: Router or PC)...

Just a thought,
