I own a ZyXEL WRE2205v2 wireless repeater. This week the device tried to update its firmware but was interrupted due to a power drop. Since then, I can't get the device to work any more and even a factory reset by pressing WPS for 10 seconds does not work. What should I do?

    Even I am facing the same issue - unable to perform a factory reset. I have started facing this issue after performing the firmware upgrade (WRE2205v2_V1.00(AANK.5)C0_20171101). Please advise.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi guys,

    I tried it in my side and it works.
    My laptop is directly connected to WRE2205v2 via Ethernet cable, then I push the WPS button of WRE2205v2 for reset it. After that, if my laptop doesn't get the IP address, I will set a static IP address ( in my network card. And open browser to type, I'm able to access the web interface of WRE2205v2.

    If it is still not working, I recommended to recover WRE2205v2 via below steps.
    1. Download firmware from ZYXEL FTP (ftp://ftp2.zyxel.com/WRE2205_v2/firmware/) in your computer or laptop.
    2. Download TFTPD software.
    3. Set a static IP address in the network card of your computer or laptop.

    4. Directly connect WRE2205v2 and your computer or laptop via Ethernet cable.
    5. Power off WRE2205v2.
    6. Pressed WPS button and don’t release it then power on WRE2205v2.
    7. Wait for 3 sec till signal led is steady on, now WRE2205v2 is ready for firmware upgrade.
    8. Open TFTPD software, then select "Server interface", type "Host" is and select "Local File" which firmware stored path.

    9. Pressed "Put", it will start to upload firmware file.

    10. After the firmware is uploaded, pressed "OK", WRE2205v2 will do upgrade automatically.

    11. Now, you should able to access web interface of WRE2205v2 .
