Dear Asus, 

I am attempting to restore firmware on my Asus router, but the restoration utility will not install on my Win10 64 version 1607. 

I get the following error: https://ibb.co/k3Jo5a>>
>If I try to run the program in Win7 compatibility mode I get further in the installation process, but then a prompt appears: "Please Insert Disk 1 That Contains the File layout.bin". It seems the system deletes installation files to early, and I tried to fix this by running the program with parameters -a -deleter, but it didn't work.

Now I am clueless..  Please help.

Regards

Ok, so yesterday the router did not respond on 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1. I want to adjust settings. I've tried Chrome, Firefox, Edge, IE, using my mobile. Does not work. This is why I tried to reset the router, and ended up with a slow flashing power LED. And no wifi. I thought I bricked the router and needed to do firmware recovery. >
>This morning I got the idea of disconnecting all ethernet cables and then rebooting it. Voila! Wifi led's went back on, so I connected cables again and now it works like before. My settings are still there. It is setup as access point, and has my chosen SSID/password etc. So it can't have reset...!>
>I still can't get into the router, not by cable nor wifi. So I will need to attempt resetting it again. Hopefully I will not need the Firmware Restoration Utility as that does not work...
