It would be nice if you can bring up another computer and connect it to
the same switch to verify if it works or not.

I assume you have one computer that is connected to one of the ethernet
ports of the router, right?
If that's the case, and you already reviewed
all of the external symptoms (e.g., network sockets blink when a cable is
attached in both ends) there can be happening one of these situations:

- The router has no DHCP server enabled and it is configured to listen in
another IP address that you don't remember.
It's brand new and never been configured before.

If this is the case, a reset could be the fatest way to recover from this
but be careful with resetting because it can delete your ISP connection
settings, so if you are not sure what data do you require to setup your
WAN interface, call to service support so thay can guide you -step by
step- with a reset procedure.

Another option can be also to use a network device discover tool (like
angry ip scanner) to find whee is your router located.

- The router is locked/blocked somehow and does not respond to pings. Try
by power cycling it and check if you can now reach it.
yes,I've tried all this, swapped cables everything.

- The router can be broken, request for a replacement.
No, at least part of the router is fine.
I've just borrowed somebodies XP laptop and been able to establish a wireless connection that I'm sending this on.
I've got a new (well, new, secondhand) laptop coming in a fortnight. I might have to hang out till then.
