The power LED came on and turned orange, I lost my connection, and the router rebooted itself. But then I couldn't connect anymore wired or wirelessly. I tried opening up my subnet and pinging the default IPs and the old IP, 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1, and 192.168.48.1, but nothing came back.
So right away, I tried to factory reset by pushing a paper clip in the hole for 7 seconds, then tried again holding it for 30 seconds. Now I see a dd-wrt protected SSID being broadcast and the LEDs are back to normal, so looks like it factory reset itself. However,
When I'm hardwired in set to DHCP/automatic for everything, I get an IP address of 192.168.0.126 but no gateway (and it says No Network Access in Windows)
I can't ping 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1, even when I set everything manually
arp -a doesn't give me any real physical MAC addresses, so it looks like the router doesn't have an IP address
running a layer 2 LLDP scan, I see no devices
running a Wireshark scan while plugged into the router, I see nothing to/from the router
Is there anything I can do besides throwing my router in the trash?

Fixed! I was able to get into the dd-wrt SSID by using the password listed under the router, and from there I could use my restore using a router IP of 192.168.1.1. Whew. No idea why hardwiring wasn't working.
