Cannot connect to 3700 in 1Gbps

So to start off all of this started after a power surge.
My computers were all connected to my Wndr3700 by Cat6 and everything was working fine till yesterday. I noticed it after my computer restated and was connected at only 10Mbps. I could force it into 100Mbps/full but thats it. I've tried multiple computers and different Cat5e and Cat6 cables on all 4 ports but nothing will connect at 1000Mbps. Is there anything I can do besides buy a new router?

Always hard reset the router and reconfigure it.

I've already tried to hard reset it and I've always flashed the firmware. I guess I'll just have to buy a new one.

Are you SURE that your computers, or at least the E-net ports, were not damaged?

Re: Cannot connect to 3700 in 1Gbps

Strange that it would work at 100 when forced. Each port should have it's own Opto-Isolation chip, and the 4 ports then combine to go to one single chip... So if it's failing to connect at 100 then I'd hazzard a guess that the chip or it's supporting hardware is damaged.

Have you checked your power supply?...
