C7 ac1750 v2 bricked - how to enter recovery mode?
2015-08-23 21:28:09
Model :

Hardware Version : Not Clear

Firmware Version :

ISP :

Have tried several times to be able to tftp a new firmware to the routers expected ip-address in recovery mode: 192.168.1.68 but so far without luck. When powering on the router I hold down the WPS / Reset button until the WPS LED lights up, but have also tried for much longer time. When I try to scan for connected devices I can only see my PC's ip-address 192.168.1.66 - shouldn't I be able to see the router?
During the routers power up process the system LED blinks for a while but then turns stable

How did you make it bricked?
I see someone shared the method here. You may give a try.

I installed OpenWrt and tried to unbridge the wireless network and LAN as I would like to use the AC1750 as a holiday house router connected via VPN to me home network. Thanks for the link, which is the exact method I have tried now for a while without any success. The problem is that either is the routers ability to go into recovery mode missing/defect (as some people claims) or I have used an incorret method. What should work is holding down the WPS button while powering on until the WPS LED lids up. But no this doesn't work on my router :(

:( If so, I'm afraid that you have to buy a new router.
