More Network Trouble

So now that the dust has settled from the network crash, i noticed that one of my printers was not doing its job. It's on a Netgear print server that i must admit i bruised a bit over the past 6 months, but it had always been pretty strong. I bruised it by plugging the wrong power supply into the server without noticing for about 6 months. It turns out that a 12 volt supply will work with a 9 volt device, at least for a while.

What is odd is that I could talk to the device, but it has somehow had it's memory erased and I can't figure out how to get it to take new settings. I even tried upgrading the firmware, but the upgrade complained that i had the wrong hardware. I am at a bit of a loss since it seems the device 'could' work, but somehow, it's gotten amneisia.

If anyone has any idea how I can make this thing remember what it is, let me know. The print server is a Netgear PS121.
