Please help. The 'green power led' is still blinking after 30min.

Looks like I have to turn it off.

Yes, its still blinking green power led. I think router is dead.
Is there any link to fix this.


Sorry. I have no knowledge about the apm812xx devices generally, or WNDR4700 specifically.

Sounds like you might need to correct a serial cable to see the exact error during boot.


What version did you come from and did you preserve settings?
Have you tried booting into failsafe?

I was upgrading from 17.04.1. No, I did not preserved settings.

I dont know how to start failsafe.


I read a lot finally found link to flash OEM firmware

  1. Flashing Guide | https://kb.netgear.com/000059633/How-to-upload-firmware-to-a-NETGEAR-router-using-TFTP-client
  2. Firmware | https://kb.netgear.com/000049008/WNDR4700-Firmware-Version-1-0-0-56

Now my Router is running with stock/oem firmware

Thanks to everyone
