AX_1800 Flint going dark after reboot

Hi all
I have had Flint since it was launched after having tweaked out the dropouts and some other issues specially with QoS, yesterday I rebooted the router and it went dark… nothing was happening it did not boot up again until I had to reset it back to factory settings not once but 3 times in a row for it to come alive again. As annoying as this is to put back all the settings what worries me is having to do this procedure (ie resetting) after every reboot or just having a power outage.
Any one has any ideas on what this might be or suffering the same thing ?

Firmware Version OpenWrt Chaos Calmer 15.05.1 a828782+r49254 / LuCI Master (git-20.353.27956-6404588)
Kernel Version 4.4.60

nope, but may I recommend you to do backups?
ssh root@ 'tar zcf - /etc' | dd of=/path/to/backup.tar.gz
this is saved me many times.

You can also do config backups on LuCI → System → Backup / Flash Firmware.

Thank you both but the thing is why is router acting up and needing a full reset when I do a reboot ?

Does the router go dark and has to be reset after every reboot, or did it only happen one time?

You can try reflashing the same firmware. If the issue persists, there may be a hardware problem.
