OpenVPN oops... did I brick my router?

    I have a few static IPs assigned on my E2000 router from 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.6.

    I stupidly configured OpenVPN with TUN (for iOS), and set the subnet to 192.168.1.0 with subnet mask 255.255.255.0.

    The first time I connected (remotely), it assigned the VPN device 192.168.1.6, which was already in use. I immediately lost all connectivity to other devices on the network.

    I had a friend go over and restart the router, etc, but I'm still not able to reach anything.

    Did I manage to brick my router from afar? Am I an idiot? What am I going to have to do to rectify this when I get home?

    (FWIW, she told me that the lights indicating connections for the 4 ports and the WAN port are lit.)

    EDIT: Solved! I was actually able to connect to the VPN from another device (a desktop PC), get to the router, reconfigure the VPN back to the default 10.8.0.0 netblock, and reboot. Fixed!
