Resistance Value?

My solution is based on observing that an infinite number of parallel
resistors approaches zero resistance. Each row and column of resistors can
be reduced to a short circuit connected to the "center" elements through two
series resistors.

  Awaiting your drawing. :-) The proof of Fermat's last theorem required
358 years but this problem isn't that difficult to solve.
In fact, it's intuitively obvious and a good exercise for EE's. :-D
