Sonicwall TZ210 Access

Not sure what happened when we installed the new firmware to a TZ210   (end of life soon,)  and I have never had to access the router directly.
Can someone give me very easy steps to follow so I can plug my laptop into the device to see why I can no longer ping or communicate with it.
This is a very small secondary network.   3 devices for creating VPN tunnels to branches.   Updated firmware on branches first and then this one.   Now we can't use web interface or can't ping it.    So I am trying to plug in my laptop.

Ethernet port on laptop and then connect WHERE?

The router has WAN and LAN interface cables  with a DSL modem attached.   I tried the LAN port and nothing.   Won't open web page to log in

Sorry, but I am really GREEN.

It may have possibly hung during the firmware upgrade. Try pushing the reset button for 8 second and reboot the unit.

Connect your laptop to it and configure your IP to be 192.168.168.167

The fail IP set is 192.168.168.168.

You should now be able to reach the webUI.

Some quick info on this as well from Sonicwall.
