RAX120V2 cannot access router after Factory Reset


RAX120V2 cannot access router after Factory Reset

RAX120V2 router

Did factory reset and now cannot access router to setup. When I go to www.routerlogin.net it redirects to

Says Internet detected. Cannot get past Admin Account Settings. The admin username and New password are grayed out and cannot change factory default. I select security questions and type in answers but the NEXT button stays grayed out. Did Netgear brick my Nighthawk RAX120v2 router? How do finish setting up my router?

Re: RAX120V2 cannot access router after Factory Reset

Try the reset 1 more time. Push and hold reset for 7-15 seconds. 

Then reattempt the setup. 

Usually when the next is grayed out, you didn't meet the minimum requirements for something. 

Make sure the password you setup has at least 10 characters

1 special character

1 upper case

1 lower case

1 number. 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80
