      RTN66U connection timed out issue/Sky supplied modem

      Hello Sky Users

      Having a little bit of trouble getting my RT n66u access to the internet just getting a time out message every time I try to connect.

      Background
      Couple months ago I decided to pick up a Asus RT-n66u was able to setup the router fine to work on my network. Recently had turn off power around the house so turned off every plug most devices at the time was in stand by mode apart from modem/router. After doing that my modem can now connect to the internet. RT n66u now can't connect at all just times out.
      RT n66u was connected to the modem which is connected to the phoneline.

      Package is sky unlimited fibre

      Equipment
      Sky Hub SR101 / Sky or BT modem?
      Asus RT-n66u

      Spent a total of 2 hours today trying to troubleshoot what going on.
      Compared and checked my extracted username/password even extracted the username/password to check against the one recorded. Username is the same however the password is different now along with shorter. Yet just getting on the connection setup page connection timed out.

      RT n66u is flashed with a custom firmware so I can enter in a username/password.

      Not sure what else to say anybody got any ideas why my RT N66U just gets timed out and can't connect to the internet at all now.

      No idea what is happening and got no idea how to fix it would rather use RT N66U as my main router again due to being better.

      Try resetting the router back to default and set it up again. The power outage may have caused some sort of glitch.
