I tried uploading the factory firmware through the dd-wrt firmware upgrade interface but it keeps on failing to overwrite it. How do I restore my router to factory firmware?

  1. Plug the Ethernet cable that connects your computer, that was plugged into one of the LAN ports,
  2. Setup your PC with static IP - ex: 192.168.0.2 (different from 192.168.0.1)
  3. Make sure the PC has the new firmware
  4. Unplug the power
  5. Hold the reset button for 3~5 seconds and re plug the power WITHOUT RELEASING THE RESET BUTTON. 6.Open a web browser to 192.168.0.1 and then you should see EMERGENCY FLASHING page then click browse/upload locate the file and click UPLOAD FIRMWARE NOW
  6. You should see a SUCCSESS page, If you don’t then re do steps 2-6

You need to hold the reset button in until the amber power light keeps blinking on and off
