BT HH5A with Open-WRT 19.07, has been running fine for months including occasional reboots. Last night I was playing with DDNS and installed the service and scripts package etc. Everything fine. Today I installed libustream-openssl (as per recommendations on this forum) and rebooted. My WAN devices (IPv4 and IPv6) are "device not present" and there's no DSL connection. (Zen Internet VLAN101 etc. all working for months previously).
I switched off the DDNS service and uninstalled the libustream-openssl package, which orphaned the main openssl package as well so it removed that too.
Still "device not present". Not sure how to troubleshoot this further, I have GUI and terminal access, but have replaced this as my router for the moment and am connected via ethernet only.
Happy to post console output on request... Any ideas?
HI, yes I found a backup config. So I reset the router, and uploaded the old config (taken at the end of March when the router was working flawlessly). And guess what... boot up and "device not present" on wan interface once again. Is it right to start considering hardware issues at this point?
