Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Sadly, no.  I have the pc set to fixed ip on the ethernet adapater, have the network cable pluugged into one of the LAN ports on the router (not the WAN port.)  I just tried powering on, giving it a moment and then doing the 15 seconds you suggested.  Was not able to see in the web browser.


I also have tried the steps recommended to manually update the firmware with the same hardwired setup but was unable to get a connection to even if the router had been powered on for like 10 minutes (with the white LED still blinking.)

Re: SXK80 stuck flashing white

did you get it working with a tftp client? 

You can try recoving it with either tftp or nmrpflash.

are you on windows? if so, follow this guide
just make sure you enable tftp

and here's a video walk through using a tftp client. Use the built in one for windows 10 though. the video is more of an example of how its done with tftp.

and if that doesn't work, you can try using nmrpflash

I haven't used nmrpflash on the pro line but I've used it a couple times on the consumer equipment with good results. 

Current setup: CAX80->Trendnet TEG-S380->GS716T-> RBK752->pi-hole
