Zenrossi Posted June 20, 2019 Share Posted June 20, 2019 Yesterday I bought a brand new nighthawk xr500 and was super excited. I have had a R1 right from the beginning. The idea was to upgrade my R1 to a new xr500. I started by completely removing my R1 from the network so I could use it as a spare later down the line if needed. I began to setup the xr500 on its own, but there was some issues with the setup. I reset the xr500 and on the second go it completed the setup, but there seemed to still be some connections issues. Unhappy with the results of the xr500, I decided to try use it as a AP instead, so I connected it up like this: The setup now looked like this: ISP modem + R1(Router) + xr500(AP) The R1 was on the original 192.168.88.1 and I put the xr500 on same network 192.168.88.2, tested both and they worked. I could ping both routers but was getting 2 of the same wifi SSID's in my wireless list which i didn't want. So I when onto the xr500 and put it into AP mode. What this ended up doing is turning both my R1 and the xr500 into APs for my ISP modem. This seemed odd so I disconnected both routers. I then reconnected the xr500 and reset it back to factory settings to start again which seemed to work. I was able to get back into DumaOS without any issues. I then disconnect the xr500 and reconnect the R1 to do the same. I hit the rest button on the back of the R1 and waited for the full reboot but it still just obtained the IPS's IP range. So now I cant get back onto my R1 its seems to have got stuck in this state. I have checked the forums and found this post and followed the directions from the admins https://forum.netduma.com/topic/28580-bricked-router/#comments I disconnected both R1 and xr500 from my network for about 12 hours now. Please can someone help me? My R1 is far more important to me than the new xr500 and I would really appropriate the help. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
