Router Restarted During Firmware Upload

    Hey, I was wondering if anyone knew anything I could do. My router is unfuctional after the power in my room reset which caused the computer/router to restart, in the middle of a firmware upload. Extremely bad coincidence. It's a modem befsr41 v2. Right now, when it's connected, the Link light is solid, the Act light does nothing and the Diag light is blinking. I can't ping in anyway or go to the router control panel. I've tried using the reset button but that didn't do anything no matter how long I held it down. I've tried everything in the linksys easy answers page and didn't come out with anything. Does anyone know anything I could do or try? I've tried to look about "debricking" but couldn't find anything on this specific model. Thanks alot

    try opening a command prompt window and start to ping the router continuously

    ping -t

    whilst this is happening, trun the power off and then back on to the BEFSR41.

    seem if there is a "window of opertunety" whre the router can be pinged at all for say about 5 seconds on bootup.

    if so we shall take it from there a further stage.

    I've tried about 30 times, turning it on and off and it has hasen't pinged at all, just timed out.
