Power light keeps blinking and cannot log into WPN824 router
I did a firmware upgrade on my V3 and immediately afterwards, the system no longer connected to internet. I'm figuring, the upgrade didn't take but now I cannot access the router to attempt the upgrade again. Reseting doesn't help. Is there a recovery utility or something for this router??

Re: Power light keeps blinking and cannot log into WPN824...
Firmware upgrade is very important. You have to make sure that you were able to do it properly.
You have to do a hard reset on the router. Press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds while the router is turned on. Try to see if your computer is able to get a valid IP address. If not, set up a static IP address on the computer and see if you can ping the router, if not then the router has gone bad.

That is a sign of bad firmware of the router, Firmware is the software inside the router that control its activity , so what you can do here to correct the problem is to do a firmware upgrade on the unit and you can get the updated firmware from Netgear web site.....
The firmware has been messed up. DDWRT might be incompatible with your router. I would highly recommend to reload the factory firmware or the latest firmware from Netgear's website. Loading 3rd party firmware will void the warranty of your device.
-- who is your internet service provider -- what is the operating system of your computer?
There is a possibility that the router setting might set back to its default settings. you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router
Step 1: Shutdown the computer. Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable. Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds. Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable. Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable. Step 6: Power on the computer on Step 7: test the Internet connection.
if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router

blinking power light after firmware upgrade sometimes indicates that the upgrade is not sucessful or the firmware that you load is incorrect.
-- try to reset the router for 30secs and check if the power light is still blinking
-- if its still blinking check your pc's ip address while connected to the router
-- if the ip address of your pc is invalid (169.x.x.x.) turn to manually assign static ip address to your computer and check if you can ping your routers ip address
-- if you can ping the routers ip address, upload the correct firmware to your router
-- if you cant ping your routers ip address still, reset the router again and try to ping the routers ip address once again
-- try to change port and cables
-- if still unable to ping the routers ip address, chances are that the router might be defective now
Firmware upgrade is a simple but a delicate procedure. Make sure you are loading the correct firmware. You should get your firmware from the website of your router. Installing a THIRD PARTY firmware to your router voids the warranty of your router. Here is a tip for a successful firmware upgrade. BEFORE FIRMWARE UPGRADE(push the reset button of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power of the router for 10 seconds). Upgrade the firmware. After the upgrade push the reset button again for 30seconds, unplug power for 10 seconds.
