Yes that 1000 times over. Should be SOP for anyone administering electronic or digital gear over or close to 10 years. Leaky caps are probably the number 1 reason wall wart adapters go bad and start putting out dirty power.

That would explain it, that router takes a 12v adapter.

Note:

"The power adapter included with the device is a HON-KWANG HK-Q106-A12 (12V, 0.5A)."

Very few routers take a 5v adapter.

Get a 12V 2.5A adapter and check the on-board caps for signs of leaking. You may have to replace all the capacitors on the SoC board.




My apologies, I accidentally wrote 5 volts. They are both actually 12 volts, one 0.7 amp and other 0.5 amp.

I opened mine to check, don't seem to be having any leaks, I have a feeling this most likely was some kind of on board firmware issue.
