I inadvertently power cycled my Linksys WRT1900AC several times and it seems kind of broken.
When I boot it the power LED blinks 1 time per second for 5 seconds. Then it flashes rapidly for another 5-10 seconds until it stays on.
When I connect to the LAN port I do not get a DHCP Address only an auto assigned 169.254.49.109
I tried switching to the second firmware by power cycling it three times - nothing.
I pressed the reset button on the back for 10 seconds - nothing.
Any ideas on how to fix this?
Thanks you for your help!
It can sometimes be quirky.
Switch on - lan ports blink on then off. Wait for the next time the lan ports to blink and
Repeat sequence 3X power up and wait. (4-5X) won’t hurt
Normal behaviour should runs thus:
Should get long blinks along with short blinks for bit, and then regular steady blinks, then finally always on power. Try it.
Use wired connection. Alternate partitions and a try both.
It is indeed quirky. The 3x power up sequence does not work at all. I resetted it, installed luci-app-advanced-reboot and switched over to the working firmware.
Thank you for your help!
