RBK40 No longer works

I have the RBK40, NOT the RBK50, but Netgear's community software isn't aware of its existence.


I haven't had this thing for a week yet. It was fine over the weekend, but this morning I woke up to no wireless connection - the Orbi's SSID disappered. The router and the satellite only flashed white over and over.



When I returned home this evening I power cycled the router. I also held down the reset button (until it clicked) and powered on the unit. I also held down the reset button while it was on. The only change I ever saw was the power indicator turning red and flashing. I removed the push pin, and it went back to sold green. White LED still flashing.


I have no way to factory reset or even connect to this thing. No SSID is shown so I can't even log into it. Do I have a paperweight now?

Model: Orbi High-Performance AC3000 Tri-Band WiFi System (RBK50)
