Emergency recovery procedure.

If resetting to factory by holding the WPS button fails then do the following, however it’s much more technical and should only be used as a last resort.

NOTESee step-by-step Emergency Recovery Instructions using Windows PCs.

  1. Plug an Ethernet patch cable – one end into a LAN port of the Kibosh, and the other into your PC.
  2. Set the PC connected to the router to a static IP of / SUB: / GW:
  3. Unplug the router, and plug it in. This will reboot it.
    1. 2 Antenna Model: Wait a few seconds until the “sys” led (the star next to the power button) lights up, then press and hold the reboot button until the “sys” led (the star) starts blinking very rapidly
    2. 3 Antenna Model: hold the wps/reset button in, and then plug the power in…wait until the “sys” led (the star) starts blinking very rapidly
  4. On the PC connected to the Kibosh router open up a terminal/dos prompt and telnet into the router, e.g. run “telnet”. The newest versions of windows don’t ship with a telnet client, so you can do this on a mac, or download a free telnet client for windows elsewhere (e.g. PuTTY, www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/)
  5. You will see a login screen and a prompt after using telnet to access the router. At the prompt run “mtd -r erase rootfs_data” The router should then reboot, and be reset to original factory settings.
    1. NOTE: The N600 model usually needs to be manually rebooted after about 5 minutes. The ‘erase’ process only take a minute or two.
