I searched for mirrors and downloaded it from other mirror, but when I make the tftp flash, appears as succesful, but then the router dont get any ip, and in the computer i tried to do static ip has 192.168.1.1 standard or 192.168.5.1 (router stock) or 192.168.0.1 with no response, and if i take windows to get one ip by dhcp gets a 169.x.x.x weird one with 255.255.0.0 and no gateway.
I did other tftp flash to stock fw and works correctly, but I'm looking to make it work because already got lede in my edgerouter x and my tplink1043, and works like a charm, soo any thoughts or guidance my fellow router friends?
Hi, finally was a problem with the firmware file that i was using. (i dont know why)
I tried with an older one from a .de mirror repository and it worked doing it using tftp in ip 192.168.0.1 (default ip for this router is 192.168.5.1).
Then i configued it as modem router for bt adsl (uk), i put here the config for anyone wanting to configure a modem router lantiq to work with adsl because there is not a lot of documentation about this topic.
yes as I said, the info is probably somewhere on that page, just would like someone more knowledgeable to point out what I should be looking at!
I could probably work out what is needed but the amount of hours I would need to determine this i.e. reading/researching/trial-error etc is not something I have copulous amounts of, hence the reason for me posting here !
There are knowledgeable people here who in a number of minutes could tell me what the boundaries are and what the command is to flash, I hope to hear from one of them.
You are doing exactly what I was doing and that is making educated guesses. Unfortunately it will be me who totally bricks the device if I erase the wrong area of the RAM, hence the reason I was asking for assistance from someone who knew what they were doing, LOL
The erase command is not recognized in this version of uboot that is on this Netgear.
It seems to me that something has been broken in the snapshots, as other peeps have been successfully flashing there DM200's.
I have two here and both get bricked when flashing through the Netgear interface with a "bad magic number" error message.
Have to recover with tftp method...............
So as things stand, no expert is willing to provide any assistance
After flashing from the Netgear GUI the device goes into 'recovery mode'
Exact message below
** check the 1 image **
Verifying Checksum ... OK
** check the 2 image **
** Bad Magic Number ** 0xc5a65360 **
The router is in TFTP Server Firmware Recovery mode NOW!
Listening on Port : 69, IP Address: 192.168.5.1
Upgrade Mode (This part is flashing)
Thats as far as the boot process goes.
In this state the device will accept firmware pushed to it via tftp transfer.
