On Saturday we had a rumble of thunder and some lightning. Shortly afterwards I realised that the house internet was down. My Balance 30 runs firmware version 8.x and it is connected to 3 lines. One is a feed from a 4G modem, which passes through a Ubiquiti wireless link, so that it is connected to the Balance by ethernet. The other two are xDSL lines. The Balance is connected to the house’s switch, from which lines run off to LAN sockets in each room.
I found that one xDSL modem is apparently dead, though the other seems fine. The Balance red LED status light is flashing. If I reboot it, it goes solid red for about 60 seconds, then flashes. I cannot seem to reset it by using a paper clip to hold down the reset for 15-20 seconds.
Is my Balance dead? Is there some way to interrogate it? (Currently I have removed it from the attic and it is sitting on my desk).
