I have recently purchased a AR750s and I an unable to perform the debrick process EVEN on a windows machine, AND with a supposedly compatible uBoot from (Aug 16 2018 - 07:51:15). I have also updated to the latest stock firmware, but still unable to access the uboot interface.
I have tried also using a Linux machine, with the same results. There is no response from 192.168.1.1 at all no matter what i do.
What am I missing?
Uboot does not have relationship with your firmware. So upgrading your firmware does not affect uboot.
to use uboot web failsafe, the key is to obey the sequence:
- Plug only one cable to the router from your windows. Do not plug 2 cables to the router
- Hold down the reset button
- Power on the router, wait and see one LED flashing, until another LED light up
- Release your finger.
- Set your static IP in your windows (you can do this first) and open your browser.

I managed to resolve this issue. For reference, I had change to use a CAT5e cable. The cable that I was using was probably a CAT5 cable. Very obscure issue but there you have it.
