I've been working with this router for the last few days. This is actually my previous home router that I now plan to use as a range extender.
First objective though will be to get the thing to fully boot. As of at least yesterday the power indicator has continuously blinked, with none of the LAN indicators lit. I've tried pinging the router after doing 60/60/60 hard resets X3. The the LAN LED is now lit, but still 100% packet lost during ping. From what I can find in my research, the router firmware is corrupted or I have an internal component failure. I have considered trying to use TFTP to push a stable firmware version, but I doubt that would work with this poor connection. I also have no experience with TFTP however.
Which is why I'm here asking for guidance. I've probably already spent to much time with this project. Can anyone confirm my logic and/or give guidance on next steps or how to push this firmware? Thanks in advance.
OS: Windows 10
Router: Linksys E3000 version 1
