Netgear M1100 keeps freezing and not broadcasting.

I have a M1100 router that has worked perfectly up until the other day.. one morning I went to use it and it wasn’t showing up on the wifi list. I restarted it and no change. I reset it holding the back button but it did not help.. the router isn’t broadcasting a signal, I can’t connect to it via USB and then after about 10-20 minutes of being on, it stops responding.. If freezes and the only way to get it to respond to anything is to restart it.

Is there any way to do a reset/firmware update via USB?

I’ve also tried logging in through the browser but no luck there either.

Thanks

Pablo.

Re: Netgear M1100 keeps freezing and not broadcasting.

IF your referring to the MR1100, FW for this unit is kept here:

https://www.netgear.com/support/product/MR1100.aspx#download

 

As a full power OFF of the unit for 1 minute or more then plug back in been performed?

How would I install that FW on the M1100? I can’t seem to connect to the device at all.

This seems a HW failure. Please do a factory reset and see whether the device can be rebooted.

 

Thanks
