First of all - I'm quite new to all this linux stuff. My brother introduced me to OpenWRT, and I found that I quite liked that compared to Stock Firmwares.
Yesterday I upgraded from 15.05 Chaos Calmer on my WRT1900ACS and had some issues with it not booting properly. I managed to fix it, and it now quite happily runs LEDE/OpenWRT 17.01.4
Today I'm trying to upgrade my small access points to 17.01.4, and I seem to have issues with them not booting properly either. The light (on/off light) is constantly on, so it doesn't seem to be rebooting.
However, I cannot connect to it after upgrading. It doesn't request an IP from my main router either.
I have tried updating it from LuCI as well as the console (putty on a windows machine). Both times it seemed to do it as it should, but both times I could not connect to it afterwards.
Is there any known issues in regards to booting after upgrading? And anything I could try to do differently for this AP to work?
I have tried installing both *.3 and *.4. Both seem to result in the same behaviour
Between attempts at flashing LEDE on it, I've entered fail safe mode and uploaded factory -> OpenWRT. I haven't changed any settings in OpenWRT before attempting to flash LEDE.
Yes, I am accessing it from the LAN port.
Testing with a cable from my PC -> Lan port and another cable from my WRT1900ACS -> LAN port, I don't have any internet access.
Testing with a cable from my WRT1900ACS -> WAN port, I can see that the DIR810L doesn't request an IP address.
I haven't attempted to configure it from the WAN port since I doubt that's possible
