Power Light Flashing Green

The power light keeps flashing green. Holding reset does nothing and the app won’t find the router. What can I do to get access to the router again?

   You may be a candidate for the TFTP recovery scheme.  See, for
example:

   Any triggering event like, say, a firmware update, or EMP from a
nuclear attack?

Our internet was messed up. But we thought it was fixed. Tried to update firmware but then internet connection was lost. Now it just blinks a green light on the power button. What are the best steps to take to fix this?

You can try to hold the reset button for 30 seconds to see if the router resets. If that does not work you can try and recover the router using the TFTP method that I linked below.
