[HELP] Lost access to router via both luci and ssh

I've been struggling to setup VPN on my router from past couple of day.

I just made some changes in /etc/config/network and after using /etc/init.d/network reload command I lost not only my internet connection but also access to router even to make or revert those changes.

I also tried connecting via LAN cable directly to my laptop though I can see connection is there but not able to access router.


You should be able to get into failsafe mode, mount_root, then edit changes to get the device back under control.

Setting a static IP of, for example,, on your "desktop" can be helpful.

Making static IP of computer was key, thank you!

If you time can you please take a look at my wireguard vpn issue I raised earlier?
