Returning Open Router to FutureShop

I bought a router two days ago thinking mine was dead, turns out it wasn't the problem. Can I return the open router to Futureshop? Should I reset to factory defaults if I can?
How can an ant carry twenty times its body weight, but root beer floats are still delicious?

I've returned plenty of computer parts to FutureShop. Usually for the exact reason you say, I'll get a part from there to see if it's the problem in my setup. Even if it IS the problem, I'll usually return it and get a better price somewhere else.

That said, I've never returned a router...don't see why they wouldn't take it back though.

As for whether you can return it, might I suggest you read their return policies, either online or on the back of your receipt? Your answer will be there. When it comes to resetting the factory defaults, most definitely you should. It'll only take about 30 seconds to do that often just needs a button on the back to be pressed while the unit is powered up.

Totally agree, but it shouldn't be a problem returning it.
