Bricked Teltonika RUT955

Hi all,

Decided to switch to OpenWrt as the Teltonika firmware is buggy as hell.

Followed these instructions:

Used the URL for the factory image from here:

Terminal downloaded the image and proceeded with the install (bypassing the checksum checks).

But now the router doesn't seem to be doing anything. I have connected ethernet and is not addressable. I am not being assigned an IP.

What should my next steps be?!

Any help gratefully received!




All OK, I had my ethernet connected to the WAN port (as I'd set it as a LAN port on my previous setup).

All sorted.
