It is unlikely that your router was hacked and very unlikely that it would remain hacked after a reset to factory defaults.

Over the years I've had 2 routers go bad. One just quit working and the other one would run for several hours, get hot and go and would wonkie go would and..... My wife got a new tablet about 3 weeks ago, worked fine. Two days ago fubar - weird screen and won't shut off - warranty time. I always keep a second router on the shelf. The first one knows it's there and can be replace in minutes. Keeps it in line... ;)

Numerous other ones too. I don't think you should invest money. You should invest time and install OpenWRT on that hardware:

If you buy a new one, it'll probably be even worse when it comes to security. Nobody cares...
