Dell Broadband 2350 Router & lack of Support

Q: Dell Broadband 2350 Router & lack of Support

I'm trying to open a port so I can set up my FTP. I've tried port forwarding, port triggering, etc. and no one can ping me. I set up the port as 21 and, using the router's IP address, which isn't my dynamic IP address from the ISP, I'm so firewalled I can't get out.

I did go to whatismyip.com and got a number, which I pinged and got results on all four packets. When I run IPWatch, I get the router's 192.168._._ number.

BTW....this is a Dell 2350 Broadband Router -- brand new.

The wonderful thing is that Dell Support WON'T support Advanced settings -- they DON'T KNOW HOW! However, for $40, they will trnasfer me to a technician who can help me. Figure that one out. For a $70 router, I can't even get support to set it up. I'm dealing with tech support in India, so have the language problem and don't feel I should have to pay for something that the salesman assured me I could do (which was to be able to set up an FTP).

Presently I'm working on a Dell Dimension 2400 desktop with an Inspiron 8600 laptop and okay there re file sharing, etc.

I know I can't ping myself and even called my ISP provider who tried to see if he could see (ping) any or all of the ports. I'm freakin' stuck and MADD AS HELLLLLLLL at DELL!

I want to set up my Titan server so that I can share homemade media shows w/pics to family and also am working w/a company in Atlanta and I'm out here in the middle of the Pacific. I need to work on setting up their website so they need to be able to access me for documents, etc.

If there's anybody out there who can help me, I'd sure appreciate it! Obviously, I'm not a kid (68) and not totally computer illiterate, but this just boggles the mind.......and I don't wanna have the biggie over it! But anyone answering this post can consider me a good looking 28 year year old redhead with green eyes!!!!

P.S. I just did my first reformatting, so I'm still quaking over that...LOL

Preferred Solution: Dell Broadband 2350 Router & lack of Support

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Dell Broadband 2350 Router & lack of Support

You don't need to worry about quoting the "192.168._._ number" - everyone on the planet using NAT uses that (well nearly everyone!). It's the public dynamic IP address you may want to withhold from the rest of us!

For port-forwarding you need to set-up in the router port-forwarding to the LAN IP address of the PC on which your Titan server is operating NOT the IP address of the router. Your external user tries to FTP to your public IP address, that hits the router and the router forwards as per its config to the device on your LAN running your server: that way the external user gets through the firewall without knowing the internals of your LAN. If you have a dynamic public IP address that's obviously going to change from time to time (it does what its says on the box! - it's dynamic) which can make access for external users difficult -- so you may want to look into a Dynamic DNS service (such as offered free at www.dyndns.org or www.no-ip.com) where you can get a domain name and your external users use that rather than an IP address and the DynDNS service keeps the domain name in line with the changing public IP address.

On the ping question: it may be that the router is configured to not respond to pings from the internet - some/many routers have this facility (for security reasons) and it is often the default but I do not know the model in question. If you have the possibility in the management GUI too enebale/disable ping you can switch on response to do your pinging then.

Try resetting the router to factory default settings.

Sounds like a problem with router's LAN port, cable or laptop.

Try different LAN ports. Try a known working cable. Can the laptop connect via ethernet to the modem directly?

Hi all,

I have a Dell 2350 Wireless Broadband Router, and it has worked pretty well the last few years. Now it's acting up, although it works on the first computer (running XP) and the wireless laptop (XP). It has run (wired) on my new computer (Vista) for one week, then stopped. It tells me the network is unidentified, and the connection is local only. No changes were made to the router or any of the computers when it stopped working. I have done System Restore and Factory Image Restore as the Dell Chat guy told me to do, which solved nothing. I have also connected the DSL modem directly to my new computer and verified it works, so it's not a problem with the Vista computer.

Thanks in advance!


A:Problems with Dell 2350 router

May be a bad cable or router port. May be a 3rd party firewall (security suite) that got misconfigured and is now not trusting your router's subnet.

I am returning the Dell described below. Decided to do that on or about Sept.23 and I began applying to Dell for their RMA number. The timing of my ordering and then receiving the Dell was an almost impossible time. I am blessed with the C.O.P.D. disease and a head cold began to make it's presence known---and how it did!! Still have it and you never want the combination of these two "killers" to hit you together. I began to have my anxiety depleted when I could not get in touch with Dell; or rather no contact with any sympathetic soul and in fact, it was pretty much just the opposite. Support in India is strictly for no one. Well, they got my Scotch/Irish anger burning and I didn't give up---it was like not being able to contact anyone at Dell Support. I really and truly felt helpless; it was like no one was home.
Dell kept saying that I had 21 days to return the computer and I had among the several items in the computer box this one page of printed info with Dell logo in several places so I scanned it and sent it attached to one of my many emails to anyone at Dell I could find a name for. Today, I got my answer. Who ever approved it said he(?) was making an exception and gave his approval. Don't really see how an exception was made when the "letter" I scanned and sent to them clearly said 30 days and in which I was well within the boundary. I did threaten Dell with letting PCMag and Smart Computing know about their lack of support and commu... Read more

Ok, I don't know if there's any solution to this other than to find the username and password, but I'll see if anyone can help me out.

I have a Dell 2350 router that belongs to my brother in law. We've been using it at my house for a while (unsecured) but now I'm trying to set it up and secure it in my college apartment and can't seem to get it to work.

For starters, it works fine as an unsecured router, I can get on and use the internet, but obviously I don't want everyone in my building to be able to access it and drain my bandwidth or do anything worse. I use windows vista, so I get on to the "connect to a network" screen and then I click "set up a connection or network" and then "set up a wireless router or access point." At that point it detects the router and says it can't configure it automatically so I click to configure it manually and that's when it asks for a username and password. I don't know it and my brother-in-law doesn't remember it either, we've tried several possibilities, but can't get in. I have tried to reset it, using the button on the back of the router, but it still needs the username and password.

So, does anyone know if there's a way to COMPLETELY reset it to factory settings, including the username and password or if there's some other way around it? Thanks in advance!

A:How can I completely reset a Dell 2350 router?

Try hardreset of the router, unplug it and wait thirty seconds then plug it back in. Once its powered up, go to start, run, type in cmd, hit enter, then type in ipconfig. It will give you a seires of numbers for your default gateway. Open IE and then put that string of numbers into the address bar and that should bring up the router page. You can configure it from there.

I have a Dell wireless 2350 broadband router but I do no own the power adapter. Nowhere in the manual or on the device are the power parameters marked. Can anyone who owns one measure the voltage an tell me if it's AC or DC? I could try plugging in power supplies but I don't want to fry the router.


A:Need Power Reqs Dell 2350 Router

You are probaby going to have to contact Dell or their support formus and give the complete part number markings, including revison; because the specifications show both 5V @ 2A, and 12V @ 0.5A ratings. Meaning the 2350 router has at least two versions.

I burned our an ethernet switch at work due to a similar issue with a Linksys EZXS16W. When the original quit working I bought a replacement with the same model number, figuring I could use the old 12VDC power adapter. It burned out and Linksys customer support claimed there was ever only one version that used 3.3VDC, so I must have used a wrong adapter. Wrong!

I'm running into some problems trying to network my 2 Computers to my Dell 2350 Wireless Router for Internet Connection and File sharing. Both computers are hardwired directly to the Wirelss Router, so there isn't actually any current Wireless connections.

My setup is of the following fashion.

Computer 1 (Dell XPS w/ Windows XP)-----.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [2350 Router]----[DSL Modem]-----
Computer 2 (Compaq Presario w/ XP )-----`

(Periods to the left of the router for spacing purposes only)

What is working:
The router does see both computers on the network if I do a Statistics/Diagnostic check.

Computer 1 has no problem connecting to the internet.

What isn't working:
Computer 2 I can't seem to get connected to the internet.

I can't seem to get file sharing to work. I did enable file sharing in the LAN connections and I did select the items that I actually wanted to share.

I did set up the router so that it is a secure connection. Both LAN connections have the Firewall disabled.

I have been through a plethora of tutorials with this very scenario and have tried doing everything that I have read.

The last thing that I checked was to turn everything off for a bit, then I turned on the modem, the router, then PC 1, then PC 2 to make sure IP's were being assigned - which they were. Nevertheless I still can't seem to get this working.

Any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you ver... Read more

I have a household with Two Dell desktops and Three laptops the oldest laptop being a 37 month old N5110.  Kids in school you know the drill.  Of course the oldest is mine, the purchaser, the N5110, After reading about Dell not supporting this product for Windows 10 software update. I pulled my old Sony from the retired computer pile in my home office, and with a few auto updates I got a reservation for Windows 10,  So this past week I decided that if Dell drops the N5110 upgrade path I'm dropping Dell from my approved vendor list, Designating Dell to be just another Apple, stranding its customers by not providing a migration path.  The reasoning behind the Intel / Microsoft PC compared to alternatives in the 80;s was the future upgrades.  I have the Intel CPU & MS O/S but I guess I screwed up by purchasing Dells.
Oh I even tried the BIOS fix,  I already have that version installed.  I guess I just wait to see what Dell does after reading N5110 post I'm afraid that I'll have to select another Vendor, I did it to Apple in the 80's, But I'll stay with Windows and find another preferred hardware vendor if they strand this laptop with no future.  I think it is funny that someone defined the laptop lifecycle at three years at dell. Plus I use Dells in the office.   

A:N5110 Windows 10 upgrade and lack of Dell support

I have a similar problem.  The only laptop i have is N5110 Inspiron. It was one of the best configurations of that time. 
I am very much unhappy about the BIOS compatibility issue which stops me upgrading to windows 10. 
I blame both Microsoft and Dell for this. Now its like none of them wants to take up the responsibility to provide a fix. If this has to be the trend in future it will become a norm to washout devices after every 3 years. Which is not value for money. 
I hope dell comes up with a upgrade to BIOS or they reachout to Microsoft to fix the issue and upgrade on what ever is existing. I know its not a joke  cause every hour spent writing that code for a 1 person would cost too much of money.But again its  their duty.

Hello to all,   I recently did a clean reinstall of Windows XP (Home) on my Dell Dimension 2350. All went fine. Now I need to install the correct drivers. I have the Dell Resource disc and this is where the problem starts.    As noted elsewhere, after the reinstall the screen display of the Resource disc is as it would be in "Safe Mode". I was aware of this. As such, the Resource disc Search Criteria screen was a bit larger than the monitor screen. I was able to size it to fit the screen but this is really not the problem it is the following: The Search Criteria options I have from the drop down menus (on screen) are as follows:System Model:   All, Dimension C521, DXC061, Dimension DXP0G1, Dimension E521, DM061, XPS710    (Which, if any, do I pick?)Operating System: (I think I got this one)   All, Windows XPTopic:   (Maybe this one too)   All, Applications, Dell Diagnostics, Diagnostics, Drivers, Utilities   For the life of me I cannot figure out the exact drivers I am to install*. Windows XP only appears in the Operating System menu. I pretty much know the install order but as I said, I'm a bit confused about selecting the correct drivers from the disc. This computer is not connected to the internet at the moment so I can't download and use any sort of driver detection program. Other searches have confused me further and have provided no specific answer to this problem.&nbs... Read more

A:Installing drivers after Windows XP reinstall on Dell Dimension 2350 using Dell Resource disc

You need, in installation order:

Chipset driver
Video driver (depends on which video card)
Audio driver
Network driver (depends on which you have)
Modem driver, if you use a dialup modem

Go to the Support page and put in your Service Tag. It should give you the drivers you need. You can download them on any PC and copy onto a USB stick for installation on the 2350.
You only need the applications, if you actually use them (eg, Roxio, Jasc Paintshop, etc).
Then install your antiviral software and get online to the Microsoft Update site for all the patches and updates.
Keep in mind that XP is no longer supported by Microsoft and they stopped releasing security fixes for XP and IE9, more than 1 year ago. So they're both full of security holes and put your personal data at risk.

I have had so much stress after buying a brand new HP 250 G4 notebook! I've only had it a couple of months but since the start there have been browser and sound issues. Wish I'd got my  money back! I've spent hours on the phone to many HP customer support reps who have tried to fix the issues. I've even had my notebook sent off for repairs. When it was returned to me the sound issues had not been resolved despite the speakers having been replaced. I called HP again who then got me to install new drives. Issue still not fixed. My case has been kept open and I've not heard from any HP rep for a week. I know I'll have to call them! I'm fed-up and wouldn't recomment HP to anyone! Anyone else have any advice on how to get some decent support. My issue has been going on for two months! I'm based in the UK!

A:Lack of HP Support



I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

found enough drivers to make it function but its not enough now. i need something that'll let me use the video out.

just incase i figured i'd leave the Vista recovery partition still on the computer.

I'm curious who has had enough problems with the lack of 64 bit software support that they are considering going with the 32 bit version when Windows 7 is released in the Fall.

Personally, the lack of a Cisco VPN client, some poor software support, and a few driver issues, is really making me reconsider going with 64. Then again, I have not tried out the XP virtualization.

A:64 bit software support (or lack of)

Not me. I've got all the driver support I need to productively use x64. The only shortfall I see, for me, is the last of Flash for 64-bit. For that I just use 32-bit Firefox.

Ever since I got my new pc I have been attempting to contact MS Support in the UK to answer a very simple problem.

I bought Windows Media Center from Arvato GmbH in Germany. Their email address is none functional. When I bought it it fitted into the pc great, then my pc broke.

I have a new pc and nobody seems to want to help. I called the UK support number to be told that the number has changed to a 'less expensive' number - so I dialed that. After the usual robitic responses I actually reached a human being, although speaking a barely distinguishable accent. I told her the full history. 'Now let me get this straight, you have Windows 8.1'? 'Yes' I said 'but the problem is Media Center product key not working in Add Features in 8.1 - I have paid for a product that I cannot download.'

*click* nobody on line

After several attempts to call them back, I got a phone ringing somewhere, and ringing, and ringing - you get the picture? Then another robot told me there is an error *click*

After another few attempts I gave up.

If Apple Macs were not so damn expensive I would stick MS where the sun does not shine.

Edit: Wow! finally got to 'speak' to MS via social media software. Gave them the details, we shall see ........

I bought Dell Dimension 2350 Pc about 6 years ago and I've used windows xp pro now and I want to install windows 7 to my pc; but I have some questions in my mind below my questions and my system feature below it. There are also my computer's features link because I've not change any part of my pcs.

Windows 7 is better than windows xp? I think: of course
windows 7 works on My system with better performance than xp???????
Can I setup and use windows 7 on my system; but I will setup xp + 7. I think to use 10 harddisk for xp and 30 gb for 7


My System= Dell Dimension 2350
-Intel? Pentium? 4 - 2.00 GHz
-384 MB DDR SDRAM (128+256) PC2100 (266-MHz) = I can upgrade this if necessary
-64 MB integrated Intel 3D Extreme Graphics
-40GB Ram = I'm think to use 10gb for xp and 10gb for 7 but if necessary I can use all( I will install xp for my family because I want to seperate os after family sent emails from my account that is hosted on outlook)

I'm waiting for each commment. Thank You!

A:7 for Dell 2350

Not sure on some of your questions, but I can say that you will not be able to use screensavers or aero effects because of the video. I would try to push your Ram up in your system quite a bit more. I am running it on my old Dell Optiplex GX260 with these specs:

P4 2.6 Ghz
1GB Ram
40 GB HD
Geforce 6200 256 MB (Just upgraded from a 64 MB so I could use the aero effects)

I am using two hard drives, one with XP and one with 7. I just open the case and swap them them out if I need to go into XP. I did the same thing on my wifes.

I'm sure someone else can give you a better idea, I have seen it run on Computers like yours, but have no idea of the actual funtionality of it.

Right after i installed the 64 bit version, i assumed that chrome already had such a version released, but after a closer inspection i realised it was still a 32 bit one. After looking further into the matter i found out Google only released it for Linux users, which is beyong my reasoning.

After that, i tried firefox, which apparently had a 64 bit version available, yet it asked for no apparent reason for me to give my administrator name and pass, which were incorrect according to the installer, and it exited. It eventually crossed my mind to right click and select 'run as admin' and it worked fine.

Also, i have noticed the built in IE browser is 32 bit aswell, which seems odd.

On top of all those, is the information that adobe flash player does not support 64 bit browsers true? EDIT: i tried using the 64 bit version of firefox to browse youtube, but it keeps saying i need an additional plugin, i install the adobe plugin, yet it keeps giving me the same error, which to my mind means adobe does not support 64 bit yet?

My Dell 2350 keeps shutting down. I have had it for years and use it for work, school, and small recordings. I intended on getting more memory because i know the virtual memory is probably close to the max use..

It did this once and then stopped for awhile. Today I opened it up to whipe out the dust and made sure i did the static thing before touching anything. Now even when I turn it on in safe mode.. It will run for awhile and out of nowhere it shuts down. Please help. I noticed in other forums you need more information. But I cant get the PC to stay on. Cant afford the MAC I want and need this computer to give me a few more years.PLEASE HELP.. I have to use it for work in the morning and dont wanna spend 100's for a geek squad at Staples or somewhere to tell me what you great people could..



A:DELL 2350 Keeps Shutting Down

edit: a quick look shows that as a desktop -

Does the cpu fan start as soon as you switch it on? Does it keep spinning? You need the cpu fan running to cool the cpu.

Is there air coming out the back slots from the psu? You need the psu fan running to cool the psu.

Try running with the side of the case open and another large fan blowing inside.

How clean are the heatsink fins? DO NOT REMOVE THE HEATSINK! Just see if they are clogged. If so, unplug, push the power button and then blow the fins and the rest of the comp out good using canned air or a low pressure compressor air jet.

If, after all that, it still shuts down, and the fans run ok, then you need to check whether you have dislodged one leg of the heatsink (if you don't move your comp this is unlikely).

I was able to get this DELL 2350 started with a Reinstallation CD MSW XP Home Edition Including SP1,

However I want to update through Windows update and am receiving the following error message;

Your computer's date and time appear to be out of sync
with an update certificate. To fix this:
1. In Control Panel, open Date and Time Properties.
2. Ensure that the date and time are correct.

problem (error number 0x80072F8F) yourself.

When following the directions to run the registry files given for three options, the files pop up but what am I suppose to do with them if I opt to open registry files, I do not think this is the problem.

However I am not sure the time has been reset from Pacific to Eastern etc.
Will appreciate any suggestions and or will retry Windows fix if I know what to do.

Hi there all,

I have looked through the forums hoping to find an exact answer to a problem I've encountered in repairing an Dell Inspiron AIO 2350.
Originally the Computer came to me with a cracked digitizer screen, So I replaced this. It was displaying the image from windows fine but due to the damage it was having issues with the touch screen and having "ghost" input (circles were flickering across screen).
So I got an New replacement Digitizer with out the LCD assembly since the LCD itself was displaying fine....
This is where things got "interesting" I assembled the computer back, and turned it back on... and got no display on the screen at all ... I pulled it apart several times and got the same result (was checking to see if anything was missing or misplaced)
I noticed an ribbon cable retainer clip was broken, so I got an replacement board for this and when it arrived I replaced it, re-assembled the computer and ... same thing.
After hitting up google I tried to see if it would display to an external monitor with the HDMI out connection, and it did.... I selected the monitor to duplicate the primary monitor and tested the screen... digitizer worked as intended... but no display on the main screen.
I am now deciding whether it is a cable or converter board issue? I have been on the phone to a person at dell and they mentioned the cables may be reversable (not notched). I will try this to night but I am wondering if anyone else has experienced the... Read more

Hi everyone,

My problem is with a dell 2350 with XP and it has a Bluford motherboard.

It had (2) 128Mg sticks of pc2100 Ram, I inadvertantly installed (1) 128Mg stick of pc2100 and (1) 256Mg stick of pc2700.
My son turned it on, check disk came up and showed it had 384Mg's of Ram and asked to continue, he clicked ok. Windows loaded, at the User screen he clicked on his name but couldn't type the password, "number lock" lights were lit on the keyboard showing power. Without being able to type the password he turned the machine off.
Powering it up again a few minutes later the power light comes on, fans turn on, light on the motherboard lights but it doesn't boot.

I've swapped back to the (2) 128Mg pc2100 memorysticks, checked all plug connections and it still won't boot.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

Just purchased the DELL ONE 2350 with the i3 processor.  I know that version with i7 has an MSATA included, so is it possible to add one to the other versions?  Could I upgrade the HDD to include an MSATA drive?  Looked in the manual and does not show how.  Don't want to open the computer and find out I can't do that.
Has anyone tried to add an MSATA drive to this computer?


Hi Don,
Some systems that take an mSATA SSD require a daughter board and others don't. I'm not able to tell from the manual what the specifics are for your system, so I'd suggest calling Dell customer support. Of course, you do not need to buy the mSATA SSD from Dell.

The pci 6200's and 5500's are generally the fastest pci cards.

Here's a 6200, but it's out of stock atm.

Here's a different pci 6200(256mb)

Here're two fx5500s.

I'd get the cheaper 6200 if it was in stock, but since it isn't then maybe a fx 5500 and oc it some(if you're into oc'ing).

How do I find out what memory I can use in a Del 2350 pentium 4 machine? Not
necessay what is recommended for it but what is posssble to put in it. For example I think the 2700 memory is recommended for it but is it possable to put 3200 or 4200 memory in it? Maybe some for the higher level memory that is backward compatable?

It appears that some of the new memory chips are lower priced that older ones
when I look at tiger directs webpage. So what what can I use?
Thank you,

A:Memory for a Dell 2350 What can I use

Crucial indicates that you can use up to 1GB of either PC2700 or PC3200. Crucial guarantees compatability.

You were supposed to make your own repair disks. Try rebooting the computer, start tapping F12 without waiting for any screen and see if you can access the boot menu. Run the diagnostics to test hardware. Include the Custom Hard drive test. 
You can download the Create Media tool on your other computer, select make disk for another computer, download the iso file for windows 8.1, burn it to disk and boot to that. First thing to do is to run the diagnostics to test for hardware failures. No use reinstalling anything on a failing hard drive or with any other hardware failures.

Hi! I inherited my daughter's Dell Dimension 2350. I upgraded it by reformatting and installing Windows XP Pro. It came w/Home Edition.

I now have no drivers for my network card. So I can't connect.

Hello, I know this Dell is rather old but it is all I have for use until I have saved for a new laptop. My problem with it is that it is very slow.

It has a 1.8GHz Intel Celeron CPU and 512MB of RAM and it runs Windows XP Home Edition, but when I attempt to browse the web via Google Chrome or Firefox or any browser, it's really slow. Trying to load a video on YouTube on this thing is pretty much impossible. I assumed this was just normal behaviour for a machine this old but I was told by a friend that 512MB should be more than enough to run Windows XP without it being this slow.

I constantly get the "virtual memory minimum too low" message while trying to visit Twitter or Facebook or even when checking my mail. I've just tried increasing the virtual memory and I will check if that has made any difference but I'd just like to know if there's anything else that can be done to improve this machine's performance. Thanks in advance for any help.

here are things I do to maintain my computer at its top potential:
1. update OS
2. update antivirus definition and regular scanning with antivirus and antimalware will help.
3. update device driver.

Hi, my dell dimension 2350 won't start up (at all). There is no sound whatsoever when I press the power button (the fan's don't run or anything). The only sign of life is when I have the power cord plugged into the computer the motherboard light turns on (green in color). Other than that, nothing. Instantly I thought it must be the power supply...but I bought a power supply replacement, installed it...and still nothing. I don't know what else it could be. I was thinking maybe the motherboard? but the motherboard looks fine visually (no broken capsules) and wouldn't the fan still run and the cd drive still be able to go in and out if the motherboard was damaged? I don't know...I'm out of guesses.

Also, the diagnostic lights on the front and back of the computer are not lighting up in any way.

Anyone have any ideas on what the issue might be?
Any help would be great....thanks!

My Dell Inspiron 2350 All-in-One  was damaged by a power surge during a storm. I took it to Best Buy since this is where it was purchased.  They wanted way to much to fix it so I was going to replace it myself. The tech said that the internal power supply inside the PC needed to be replaced. After I opened the PC I could not locate an internal power supply. I have looked at the manual and can not find the internal power supply. Where is the power source or internal power supply that they said needed to be replaced that was damaged during the surge?
