NanoBridge m5 not working

I have one NanoBridge M5 that is not working. AirOs 6.1.4 (XM) . I tried to load AREDN firmware, but it seems that I have done something wrong. I cannot connect it; cannot find an IP-address. Is it possible to rescue the machine ??

I have 3 NanoBridges that is converted OK, but they had  AirOS 5.xx

yes, haven't yet meet a Ubiqiti device that couldn't be recovered, unless hardware failure.  Best to use the tftp process to directly load firmware to the device (could be AirOS or AREDN image) to a known state.  The only scenario where you may have 'soft' bricked the device (open up case and attach to serial console to recover), is if you attempted to install an old AREDN firmware from 2016 era.    Assuming you are attempting to load a current AREDN version, then the tftp process is expected to always works and it's a procedural step issue.

NanoBridge M5 not routing WAN traffic to the LAN
Hello guys,
I have an NBM5 that I just loaded with (that was a chore in itself). I have this plugged in a 5 port Netgear switch configured with VLAN ports. 
The first thing I noticed is DHCP on WAN port did not work. I then put in a static IP and found that I could not ping my gateway from the LAN.

I tested my switch and VLAN system by plugging in a Bullet M2, I was able to ping the WAN Gateway.

I am pretty sure that this is an XM board based on what I was able to see in the 6.14 UBNT code.

So my question is, does the VLAN assignments on the NanoBridge work the same as the Bullet M2?

I can plug the NBM5 right into my main network switch and cannot get an IP or ping from a static IP.
When I go into Administration and look for a package to install I get an error that tells me I have no connection to the internet.

I am thinking I have some configuration set wrong:

Here is my settings for the LAN
Protocol - DHCP
DNS 1  -
DNS 2 -

Allow others to use my WAN = Checked
Prevent LAN users from accessing my WAN = UnChecked

MESH RF is enabled
DHCP Server is enabled

Any tips or clues would be a great help!
