Nighthawk R8500 will go to ready status


Nighthawk R8500 will go to ready status

I attempted to reboot my router and it will go to the ready status (white power light).  It seems to keep rebooting itself.  Does anyone know how to fix this?

Is this after you did a firmware update or there was an auto update? This sounds like an udpdate that failed.

If the power LED stays white, that is as expected.The real problem is when that doesn't happen.


What about the other LEDs?


If you visit the support pages:

Support | NETGEAR

you can feed in the model number and find the documentation, and, if there are any, firmware versions and drivers for your hardware.

Did you reset the router to factory settings after the firmware flash?

New firmware sometimes introduces changes that are not compatible with the old configuration.

So while it isn't guaranteed to fix problems a factory reset is the first thing to try if you have issues with new firmware.

Just another user.
