So today I managed to soft-brick my router … I hadn’t done that in a while. The repair process is fairly simple, but is a huge pain in the ass. Why? because it involves tftp (trivial file transfer protocol) and a whole lot of timing so be patient.
Now keep in mind that depending on the brand, age, and model of your router you may have to perform these tasks in a slightly different manner, but the gist is the same. I’ll keep the instructions generic.
