I took my old Fritzbox 3490 router out of a cupboard. I'm trying to access it, the Fritzbox 3490 router, to factory reset it as I've forgotten the password.
I attach it to my laptop and enter the address. It won't respond.
The device is there. No ping No tracert.
I went through this: https://en.avm.de/service/fritzbox/fritzbox-3490/kno...
procedure by procedure..... eventually downloading the Recovery Tool from AVM the manufacturer. This should "brute force" it back to factory defaults...
However I get: "Note: the device contains basic settings adapted for your Internet Service provider (zen_3490_20170_0330). Recovery could make the device inoperable on the zen_3490_20170_033 Network. Please contact you internet service provider instead. Aborting recovery" ..................GAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

I Want to sell it on ebay. Although presetup for Zen It can be manually configured for any ADSL/VDSL2 connection, as can my current 7530 Router...... Any Ideas apart from a hammer ????
