RBK53 flashing white light

Dear,

 

i've a orbi RBK53 and since a last reboot, the router is continously flashing white with no internet as a result.  I can't connect anymore via ip-address or via website to the router.  It appears that the system is death.

I've read how to install manually the firmware update via eternet cable but that didn't help neither.

We've both the orbi in May 2019, so pretty young to have a faitall system error.

 

Any suggestions ?

 

Thanks,

 

Hink

Hi,

 

the problem is solved..

It was a corrupted installation of the new firmware which messed up the whole system.

After a new download (from the netgear-website) and a reinstallation on both Router and the 2 satelittes, the issue was solved.

 

Thanks for the support,

 

Kind regards,

 

Hink

   Thanks for the helpful link(s).  With my weak psychic powers, I can't
guess what you read, or what you did, or what happened when you did it.

 

> [...] the router is continously flashing white [...]

 

   The whole _router_ is?

 

   If what you have corresponds to a flashing power indicator on a
non-Orbi router, then you might be a candidate for the TFTP recovery
scheme.  See, for example:

Glad you got it working. 

Be sure to save off a back up configuration to file for safe keeping. Saves time if a reset is needed.
