rb 951-2n pwr and act green lights ON, no ethernet lights

i have a RB 951-2n that when powered on, both the power and the act light are solid green and stay on. none of the Ethernet lights light up, nor does the other side of the Ethernet link show a link.

Ive tried holding the reset button prior to powering the device, and after powering the device, nothing seems to cause any difference. Ive used netinstall several times on other RBs both via serial ports and via eth, successfully so its not an issue on the PC side.

ive tried netinstall on this 951 with no success.

this is the 2nd of 5 RB 951-2ns that have been bricked or unresponsive.

(is there any point to keeping trying netinstall if the pc side ethernet port never shows a link light, ive tried 3 different laptops as well as another 951 and a RB 433, i never get a eth link light on either side)

any suggestions?


EDIT: Im positive the reset button is being clicked as well.
