boot looping? after power surge...

Had a power surge/short caused by an old/bad light switch yesterday.  Tripped the breaker.

I powered the breaker back on, and now my r7000 just seems to be in some wierd boot loop.

I tried holding the reset button while powering it up, but that doesn't help.

 

so - guys? Thoughts?  help?

The router was running tomato, if that matters.

Little to late but if someone

Little to late but if someone else gets into the above descriped situation you can try this:

  1. Shutdown the router
  2. Remove all ethernet cables from all ports, including the wan port
  3. Start the router
  4. Wait about 2min till 5 LEDs showing white (at least in my case)
  5. Connect all cables

I have to do this every reboot since a day with a voltage interruption.

Maybe I'll reset the router and start from scratch.
