What if the Xiaomi router can't start up properly? After turning on the power supply of the Xiaomi router, the indicator light is always red or flashing red. The important reason for this situation is the startup failure caused by the serious system failure of the Xiaomi router. For this, we can repair the startup failure of Xiaomi router through U disk brushing machine. Here is how to do it.

Step 1. When the Xiaomi router has a startup failure, we can try to log in to the background Web interface of the Xiaomi router, switch to the "routing Settings" tab, and click the "Manual upgrade" button to update the firmware of the Xiaomi router to fix unknown errors.

Step 2. Of course, if the Xiaomi router has a serious startup failure, it can only be solved by the U disk brushing machine. Log on to the official website of Xiaomi router ( and choose to download the corresponding model ROM package from the "download"-"ROM" tab interface according to the model of Xiaomi router.

Step 3. Then copy the downloaded ROM package of Xiaomi router to the root directory of U disk and name it "miwifi.bin". It is important to note here that the file system format of USB disk must be "Fat" or "Fat32".

Step 4. Disconnect the power supply of the Xiaomi router, insert the U disk into the USB interface of the Xiaomi router, use the tip object or pin to press the reset button, turn on the power, and release the Reset key when the router indicator light turns yellow and flashes.

Step 5. Then wait patiently for about 3 to 5 minutes. When the indicator turns yellow, you can unplug the USB disk. At this time, the device is rebooted after the brushing process is completed. After the reboot of the Xiaomi router, the indicator will turn blue and can be used normally.

Step 6. If the light of the millet router changes from a yellow light to a solid yellow light after flashing for a few seconds during the brushing process, it means that the U disk brushing process has failed, and it is necessary to re-ensure whether the brushing package matches and try to do the brushing operation again.
