Default Netgear NightHawk X8 Ac5300 / R8500

Hello everyone, I have the forementioned router that I happened to stumble across at my local goodwill. It seems to at least partially turn on but I can't seem to connect to it to do any kind of resetting. I looked in the back and found the actual reset button but it's been broken out. I could probably rip the router apart to jump the joints where the button would be but I'm not sure if the router is even working properly to begin with.
You can see below the power and internet lights are a amberish color. The internet will blink occasionally and will fully go out if i unplug the cable. The usb and 2.4 and 5ghz lights are a dim white. If i plug anything into the rear ethernet ports the light will glow brightly. I also am not able to see any broadcasted wifi network. I'm not sure if there's something wrong with the router or if it could be set to a different mode like a bridge mode or if the DHCP server is completely disabled. Either way I'm unable to get a gateway hooking up a computer to it.
