EX8000 Power Light Flashing Red

Decided to factory reset EX8000 while the power was on (not sure if thats good or not), since I wasnt able to access the internet even if my computer was connected to the EX8000 through ethernet. When I turned it back on Power light was green for a few seconds and then flashes red. I pinged the EX8000 through cmd prompt and I get a reply, however Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds: Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms (not sure if this is bad either). Also tried to reinstall the firmware through tf2p2.exe but nothing seems to be working. Do you guys know any other solutions?

Re: EX8000 Power Light Flashing Red

I'd first start with a factory reset. Push and hold reset for 7-15 seconds while its powered on. 

If that doesn't help, then you can try recovering with 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.
