Nighthawk AC1900 (R6900)while upgrading firmware stopped working

I am not a tech oriented person so please excuse my lack of knowledge, but I have a nighthawk wifi router and was updating it's firmware when I lost internet connection. Either my ISP, or the router lost connection. After loosing my internet connection in the middle of update, I cannot get the modem to turn on. I have read other posts and tried reseting the router and everything but nothing works. I plug the router in and the power light turns orange but that's it. No connection. I am trying to find out if the router is toast before going to Amazon and buying another router. Any advice would greatly be appreciated. Thank you.
