Did you try a hard factory reset? And, a router should not be used as a NAS! You have learned the hard way.

Sorry, it seems this bug has nothing to do with router as FTP/SAMBA server. Set LAN ip address and pool range, and then set wifi radio could cause it even without an USB device presented.
FYI, ASUS's own 3.0.0.4.384.10290 and 3.0.0.4.386.45934(latest stable from ASUS) also has this bug, you just need to tweak wifi settings couple of times to trigger it.
