I have the basic RB2011 model (just Ethernet, n console, wireless nor fibre)
A stupid typo locked me out of the device (firewall action=drop src-adress-list=rfc1918, aciddentally hit enter before specifying the interface)
So now I am trying to factory reset my router to get it back, but I cannot get it to work.
I tried the following methods:
a) power down, press-and-hold reset-button (quite tricky for a longer time), apply power, wait
I see the USER Led start blinking a few time slowly almost right away. releasing the button then doesn't do anything
If I try the same but hold the button longer, there is a singel beep, more waiting, then a double-beep, then more waiting
then all the interface LEDs start blinking for a short while until only the one of the attached interface
blinks (like normal traffic).
When I release the button then, still no luck.
b) anotehr older threat suggested that an older bootloader may be installed and make the reset button just
start netinstall, and that one should press it just AFTER applying power. (how soon is 'just after'?)
tried that, also no dice.
As it stands, I have a bricked RB2011
