    better use WPS button while powering on, often works much better than software reset.

    The first four will get your router to a good/known state. Once it's there, the last link will give your router superpowers you never knew it had! :)

    Okay, it will at least let you use a spare USB drive as a swap file. But it can offer much more too. :)
