I had changed around the ip settings on my C1000a dsl modem (which I'm trying to set up as a repeater since we no longer have dsl), and the issue is that I can no longer access the gui. I've tried resetting 4 times, and it's still not kicking in. Held down reset for near a minute...

Any ideas?

The following will reset the device to defaults according to the manufacturer. To reset the device, begin with the unit powered up and with a solid Green Power light, then using a small tool depress and hold the Reset button on the back of the device just until you see the color of the Power light change from Green to Amber, and then release it before it turns Red. The length of time that the Reset button must be held to accomplish the reset varies from model to model, but as long as the Reset button is released while the power light is Amber the Reset will be successful.

Read the manual for your router. Some "reset" buttons need to be held down before the device is powered on, some after.

Another possibility is that the button itself is broken. If you feel comfortable, you can try shorting the circuit by hand, or soldering on a new button.

Letting it get amber and releasing it before red worked for me.
