    Angry RT-AC5300 - Will not do a factory reset even with 30-30-30

    Hi there. Am I missing something? I have tried everything to factory reset this router. Something seems seriously wrong with it to the point that I cannot even log into it with my password anymore. It works but it needs to be reset because I need to be able to log into it and make changes. Does anyone have this issue?
