Hi clever people - I'm trying to do a full restore/reset on my Airport Extreme so I can use it in bridge mode (was previously used as a WIFI router, so repurposing it). I'm trying to do a full restore, following the instructions on the Apple Help, but I'm pushing in the reset button as hard/far as I can and it doesn't seem to be resetting. I'm stuck with a slow flashing amber light and an Extreme that won't connect.

The end goal is to connect the Extreme by ethernet cable to my internet radio (the Extreme will essentially bridge my cable WIFI). I've got the WIFI, I've got the software on the radio, I just need to connect my AirPort to my network! I'd really appreciate any help from people who have repurposed an Extreme...
