Summary: The unit would power on when you plugged it in, but if you looked at it wrong, or breathed on it, or changed its position, or touched it, it would power off and all of the lights would go out. It would power up again if you unplugged it and plugged it in again. I hope this is just a sample defect and not a symptom of a larger problem. I don't see other reviews like this, and I'm glad. I am asking for a replacement unit.
Summary: I have never in my life had a problem with wired connections on a router. With this router though I have had several right out of the box. For some reason when I plug my wired machines into this router the machines want to use 802.1x Authentication. Since there are no machines on my network to authenticate against the network adapters all go into an error state "Authentication Failed" and fail to DHCP.
