Do not know about Macs, ask about Linux or Windows.

Basically, it is closed hardware - you either have it repaired (with warranty or not) by authorized company or buy a new one.

Sorry.

Although, you probably can connect to it with a wire since you are able to write here, worth trying anyway if it has a RJ-45 connector (standard Ethernet "plug").

I suppose you have already tried the usual things: removed power completely, left for one minute and then connected power again?

Powering off is a slightly more powerful option than reset - in general, still do not know about Mac devices.
