WNR after lighting strike

My comcast modem got zapped by lighting last night. My netgear WNR2000 seemed to have taken a hit as well. After a few power cycles and leaving it unplugged for a few minutes I plugged it back in and it gave out DHCP address.
However, when I plug it in my replacement cable modem (RCA DCM425) it will not connect.
I did the following:
Confirmed modem good by connecting to PC
Unplugged modem and router and waited 2 minutes
plugged in modem and waited 1 minute then plugged in router.
When I try the setup wizard it does not find a signal.
I tried release and renew as well
The modem PC link light does not come on like when I plug it into my PC.
I also tried mac spoof but still not link light or connection.

Is my routers wan port dead?

Any help?

Thanks

Re: WNR after lighting strike

sounds like it. strikes can also travel via ethernet cable when other devices get hits.

Try to reflash the firmware and then hard reset the router and reconfigure it. See if that helps.
