    Is it really bricked or is it in limbo? I had one I thought was bricked, turns out i just had to wait it out to finish the firmware upgrade.

    What model router is it?

    Were you trying to install DD-WRT?

    if you think that its just a configuration problem, then go to device manager and uninstall your network driver, then click on the action tab on top and click scan for hardware changes, and let windows reinstall them in their default settings. Now try your custom IP.

    Did you do the 30-30-30 reset? (press and hold the reset button for 30 secs, unplug router, wait 30 secs, plug router in while still holding the reset, then after 30 more secs, release the reset.) Do not release the reset at any time, til the end.

    If it has not completed the firmware upgrade then do not do the 30-30-30 reset until its done..

    Hi no I didn't do anything. One day I went to turn on the computer. And I saw no Internet connection. And I look at the router and it had only one blue flashing power light. That's it. I try everything 303030 ect. I think it got brink for good.
