R7300DST - Nighthawk not turning on at all.

I've tried everything, power cycling, resetting, changing the outlet, changing the adapter. I think it got fried during a thunderstorm that happened the other night. Is there a way to fix it?

   Does that mean that all the indicator LEDs stay dark?  As usual,
showing actual actions with their actual results (error messages, LED
indicators, ...) can be more helpful than vague descriptions or
interpretations.

   That's a pretty broad claim.

   What adapter?  Do you mean the remote unit ("DST adapter")?

   Probably not any practical way.  The R7300DST doesn't have an
external power adapter, so there's nothing external which might have
failed.  You could open it and look around for some easy-to-replace
fried component, but I wouldn't expect to find much.
