Hello,
My NBG6515 was bricked today after upgrading firmware, very strange, I have upgraded using the web interface twice before without problems, the only difference is this time I had to download the firmware file (V1.00(AAXS.4)C0_20171113.bin) manually and upload it to the router using the web interface.
Currently only the power LED comes on, I tried using the reset button following the procedure in the user guide, didn't help. Router is not working in any mode (repeater/router/AP). Plugging an Ethernat cable from router to PC, connection light comes ON but no IP address is assigned to PC, tried assigning address to PC in the range of 192.168.1.x manually and couldn't ping the router on either .1 or .2 address.
Was wondering if there is another procedure to restore the firmware? maybe via USB or using some application that can access the router over some different protocols?
Please help.
Happy holidays to all.
Mohammed.

    Hi - I have a similar bricked issue with my P870HW-51Av2.  Power light just blinks, does not book and reset does not work.  Any help you can give would be appreciated!
