I just got this in today did the setup was working perfectly until I stupidly went to browse through the settings in routers browser. I do not recall changing anything just simply hit test am boom it goes through its reset period but on the other side of it the router will not recover he power light stays amber and it will not factory reset. It will about every 3 to 5 minutes turn all the lights white including the power light Andy then it will go back to amber I have as I said above attempted factory rest and just letting it sit for 10 to 15 with no power cables unplugged and still nothing.

Any ideas?

Sounds like the router is bad, I would return / replace.
