When upgrading firmware, popup shows the countdown of 300 seconds and after that 300 seconds it is stuck at that loading screen. Opening a new tab of 192.168.1.1 doesn't pull up the dashboard unless the router is restarted. Help

When it comes up, is it still the old firmware version? If so, you're probably going to have to flash via CLI or TFTP: https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Installation

TP-Link devices seem to be notorious for issues flashing via webUI. You're also s'posed to wait at least 5 minutes before trying to restart or power-cycle the router.

BTW,

I just reflashed two Archer C8 V1s without a problem using the CLI.

The WebGUI flash continually failed to complete the update.
