Hmmmm, thats no good.

My DLink 900AP+ also seemed to have died last weekend.
I wasn't home at the time, but there was a power outage last weekend, so
that may have caused it.

The powerpack looks fine and the device powers up ok and the web interface
works, but wireless connectivity is dead.
In the stats page it reports that no packets are being received on the
wireless side.
I haven't had the time to chase up on it (exams..ergh), but I've tried
resetting it and downgrading firmware to no avail.
Its hooked up to an external antenna at the moment, so it could be the
antenna playing up (somehow I doubt it though).

If the device itself is dead then I hope thier support line is willing to
