Impossible to access OpenWRT after install on GL-AR300M16

Hello,

I am reaching you guys because I simply can not flash my GL-AR300M16 using an OpenWRT official image.
It fail either using uboot or the official GLi net image (yes I am able to flash using the official GLi net image).

I downloaded the following firmware : openwrt-23.05.0-rc2-ath79-generic-glinet_gl-ar300m16-initramfs-kernel.bin

I also tried older firmware versions.

When I flash the GL-AR300M16, it seems that the device tries to boot, and then only the two green lights on.

I am out of idea, I followed the following tutorial which seems to be easy but it does not work for me

Thank you

Edit : I can see the device with hostname "OpenWrt" on my dhcp server, but I can't connect to it using either http or telnet or ssh.

Don't own the device, but this is bad, because?

Any idea?

If the thing is set to factory defaults, and you're seeing an IP address for "OpenWrt", then you're seeing... the WAN IP address, which blocks inbound connections by default.

You want the LAN IP address which, by default, is 192.168.1.1, and you'll also want the other socket. You'll need an Ethernet cable; Wi-Fi is disabled by default.
