Question about HotBrick SoHo LB-2 (LB2) Firewall
My router is bricked by upgrade firmware, the wan1 led is blinking forever, ping to the router don't work.
Either the router firmware was not for your system or the upgrade didn't take. If it just didn't take, you will have to reinstall the upgrade or reflash the upgrade manually. Your owners manual or the manufacturer's website should provide specific instructions on how to do this. Depending on the router you have you may also be able to access help information from an administrators screen if it is still accessible. http//: 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or other predefined address for your brand of router.
