Can't Factory Reset WNDR3700v4 after power outage

Hi,

 

After a power outage my router (model WNDR3700v4) cannot be factory reset. I have attempted the 30-30-30 power cycle by pressing the reset button for 30 seconds, then unplug for 30 while keeping reset button pressed, and then plugging back in for 30 seconds with reset button pressed. With nothing plugged into the router except the power cord, all the lights are steady on (channels 1-5, the 5 GHz light, and USB light are steady on) except the internet light is off. The power light is stready green. Is the router fried? I thought the power light would be amber or show a different color if there was a fault. I confirmed with an older router I had lying around that the internet from the modem is functioning. 

 

Any ideas?

   Now that we have two copies of the same complaint (three, if you
count the entirely redundant full quotation here), with no additional
information, perhaps some of us might stop wasting everyone's time and
effort with all these unproductive "Please post elsewhere" requests.

   Still more information of absolutely no interest to practically
everyone.  But the animated personal icon is even _more_ annoying.
