CAX 80 power light only, won’t hard reset


CAX 80 power light only, won’t hard reset

Started 2 days ago, I’ve made no recent updates to firmware. An internet search revealed that apparently multiple people have had this problem recently.

Supposedly Comcast pushed out a firmware update that causes CAX80s to brick. I can’t access the router through the IP and as I mentioned in the title it won’t hard reset, nothing happens. Does anyone have any insight or a fix for this?
