I'm trying to flash OpenWRT to a Netgear WNDAP360. I've managed to connect fine via UART and write the latest kernel file to an address in memory. When I go to boot it via bootm, it gets so far before it just starts writing gibberish. Has anyone any idea whats going on here? The wiki doesn't say anything about this.
I've attached a screenshot of what happens. At this stage, I can't do anything but it appears like the access point is still booting up.
I can now enter the root@openwrt command line thanks to connecting via 115200 baud rate. However it seems like it enters a blocking state followed by a forwarding state the eth0 adapter and I can no longer ping the computer the tftp server is on. Seems like something has changed in openwrt recently to break it this much.
Thank for confirming. It states it's set to 192.168.1.1 for the br-lan interface for inet which was what I set in uboot prior to downloading the initramfs file. I can't ping the tftp server and vice versa I can't ping the access point.
I had to drop my connection speed from 1000Mb/s to 100Mb/s Half-Duplex (unsure if Full-Duplex works) and it managed to ping. This seems like a pretty bad issue, i'll be curious if a fixed is released soon.
