I killed my router with an apostrophe.

My router appeared to die last night, after I tried to setup a new WiFi network. The admin interface for the router was completely borked, and the browser console kept showing javascript errors.

Turns out, because my network name contained an apostrophe, the javascript code behind the admin interface became completely unusable.

So how did you fix it? Did you have to reverse engineer the API request to make with curl, since you no longer had the admin UI?

Or did you just hit the factory reset button? :-)
