Fingbox seems to be dead

My fingbox cannot be seen on the network. When I power it on, I get a few flickers of network activity in the Ethernet Port LEDs, then those stop and there's no activity on either the fingbox or router LEDs for that connection. I've tried multiple cables and even connected to a gig switch, but I still get nothing. Did a reset and allowed factory firmware to load. Fingbox still doesn't show up. White LED is showing on the FingBox.


Any ideas? Is it bricked?

    Since the white LED is showing the hardware should still be working.

    Could you try rebooting your router? If that doesn't work go ahead and remove and reinsert the Fingbox power cable one more time.

    When you say you tried multiple cables, do you mean LAN cables or USB power cables?

    Hey @rooted I did reboot router, and I did try unplugging and replugging network and power cables. I did try different network and power cables.
    Still same behavior -- just white light on top.
