Router R8000

I am locked out of my router gui, I am currently connected through ethernet and still cannot access. my son changed one of the wireless mode to Client Bridge. now I cannot access gui. I tried the 30/30/30 several times, does not work. the reason he changed is because his laptop kept getting kicked of the network. any help is appreciated an thank you in advance.

Do you have ssh or telnet enabled?

Are you confident enough to do a serial connection?

All you should need to do to reset it is hold the reset for about 10 seconds or so and release and let it reboot. This is after you hog-tie the son up and hang him by his ankles and tar and feather him.

reset did not work. I think the reset feature is turn on because of the kids and parental control.

Then you will need to set up a serial console so you can break boot or login to the serial tty and issue an `nvram erase && reboot` and configure from scratch.

The only thing I recommend is using a multimeter to verify the pinouts. At least Netgear devices already have the header pins installed, usually. Thanks for reminding me, I need to find a jewler's lighted magnifying glass, or whatever the heck it's called. The lighted kind you can mount to a bench.

I am afraid to ask what build you have on it. I'm curious if you set a username other than root or what. Normally, the username would be root and the password whatever you set for webUI, telnet, or ssh. Can you log into the webUI via wireless?

Right now I can browse through ethernet and wifi.
I am using V3.0[beta]build 40559
yes I changed the default username and password (I do know it, have it written down)
I cannot access the webUI, I think the physical interface is unbridged.

I attached a picture to show what I'm talking about if that help, I googled the image

have you considered restoring to stock firmware using recovery mode, then reflash (and reconfigure) DD-WRT?
serial cable is optional https://khomenko.org/?p=412

So, basically you went straight to the router database and flashed a problem build. The one thing I would *try* until you get your supplies in is to shut it down. Push reset button. Power up. When the power light does it's thing, let go and try to TFTP a newer firmware to it or stock. If that doesn't work, I would try nmrplfash, and flash it back to stock and don't flash that @#$%^&*! 40559 build. You may want to check the build release threads, I have linked the most recent release, but you may want to check for issues with R8000 builds. 40270M kongac is better than that God-forsaken 40559 build.

Sorry, when you've been dealing with people daily who have done the same thing you did, none the wiser, you get a little fed up lol. No fault of yours, you didn't know any better. A disclaimer was proposed for the router database page, and it's not there yet...
