While doing a firmware upgrade on my ex7000 wifi extender the unit crashed.

While doing a firmware upgrade on my ex7000 wifi extender the unit crashed. So now the Device to Led light is flashing green and the two link rate led's are a solid amber. The unit does not work at all and will not show up on the attached devices report on my router. I had it set up as an acess point. I tried resetting multiple times to no avail. Is there any secret buttons to push when this happens to get it to reset? Any ideas at all?

You pushed and held the reset button while it was powered on? push and hold it for up to 30 seconds. 

Resetting only removes settings and doesn't over write the firmware. if it crashed during the upgrade, you can try to recover it with a tftp procedure. sometimes this fixes it.

make sure you enable tftp if you're on windows.
