Default WNDR4500 - Blinking power light after firmware update

I've had this router since Oct/Nov 2011 and recently applied a firmware update (1.0.1.6). After the reboot, the router has a blinking green power light. I'm not getting DHCP from all my devices (windows 7 x64/32, Mac OSX Snow Leopard, iPad, PS3, iPHone, etc.)

With the router connected physically to a PC, I get a auto-config address of 164.x.x.x.

I've contacted Netgear support and advised me the steps to manually recover the firmware but it was not possible since I could not get a address from the router.

Any ideas or do I need to request an RMA?

Thanks,
Joe

hard reset the router .

if still the same, return the unit for RMA since it's new and under warranty

Hard reset was unsuccessful. I was able to receive a RMA after MANY calls to tech support.
