Help Stuck In Bridge Mode

My modem lost internet so wanted to connect router to mobile hotspot until it got fixed. I didn't enter the hotspot password when enabling bridgemode and now my router is stuck.

I can't access the routerlogin to disable bridgemode. I've pressed the reset button for 10 seconds and even 30 seconds. Can't get it to work.

How do I get out of bridge mode or at least access my router settings?

Thanks.

After resetting my router and restarting my PC for the 80th time, it started working again.

Nothing to see here I guess...

   What, exactly, happens when you try that?  Do the LED indicators
indicate anything interesting?

   You might also try doing the reset (and ten seconds should be long
enough -- watch the LED indicators) with nothing connected to the router
(except its power adapter).

Well when holding down the button, the power led starts blinking orange. When letting go, my router starts doing some light display for a few seconds and then everything goes off and power led goes orange. Then some of the lights come back on slowly

It is slowly rebooting itself and running through various checks before it establishes a connection with whatever modem sits in front of it.

 

Remember, when playing around with a mix of devices you need to reboot the network in the right order.

 

Be sure to restart your network in this sequence:

 

  • Turn off and unplug the modem.
  • Turn off the modem router and computers.
  • Plug in the modem and turn it on. Wait 2 minutes.
  • Turn on the modem router and wait 2 minutes.
  • Turn on the computers.
