Bricked r8500 after successfully firmware installation

New R8500 router upgraded to the 14 November 2016 release of Kong firmware. Router configured and restarted several times. Router was set to auto restart at 6;00 am everyday. Next day no wireless radio so I checked the radio and only the power light is white and antennas lights are on. I tried to connect to the router via cable no luck, no ping, no response. I have tried the 30/30 reset and nothing. The router seems to do a regular boot sequence but goes dead. Fyi I had increased the TX power rate to 213 from 71. That's it. Any advise would be greatly appreciated
