You will have to connect by Ethernet. OpenWrt does not start with any wifi enabled.

I tried connecting by ethernet ..when i plug it into my router i just get this ..

Up..Down..Up..Down..

Make sure to set a static IP on your wired interface.

i did set a static ip of 192.168.1.254 on my laptop

It might be bootlooping, if the link keeps coming up and going down. If there's a recovery procedure, try that (best you try it with the OEM firmware first). If not, you might need serial.

Plug the Litebeam to the power adapter and the LAN port of the power adapter direct to the laptop. Do not use a router.

A good OpenWrt boot the top signal LED will first be out, then it will flash fast then slow then go out.

I tried Litebeam -> Power adapter -> laptop with static ip...Sounds like its looping

Ok..im back...Not sure what i did wrong but i used tftp to flashed OEM 8.70...then started again and was able to get OpenWrt installed... :grinning:

Remember im a noob..Now what? Its a snapshot and i understand need to install LuCi.. do i just plug it in my router ? Does it use DHCP?
