Just bought a WCR-1166-DS on ebay with intention to convert it to openwrt.
I downloaded this image:
Get in the GUI, found "update firmware" area (in japanese, pretty fun...)
launched the update.
There was a gauge in original firmware, so I waited to reach 100%
then it started to blink yellow/orange every ~15sec, but no 192.168.1.1 available.
After a while, I tried a reboot, no change...
So I searched the forum and found this topic:
The router seems to find the tftp image, because on my laptop acting as tftp server, I can see this
tail -200f /var/log/syslog | grep tftp Jul 2 21:03:08 celestin tftpd: tftpd: trying to get file: linux.trx-recovery Jul 2 21:03:08 celestin tftpd: tftpd: serving file from /tftpboot
The power led blink during about ~10sec (firmware download ?)
and then, the power led stay ON.
Other leds are off (no 15sec blinking like previously).
Still no 192.168.1.1 openwrt page...
I did a power cycle after a few minutes, and no progress....(maybe a few minute is not enough ? is it possible that it was in flashing process?)
What can I do ?
(PS: this is my 1st flashing of openwrt...all is new to me in this)
