The commit instructions say the OpenWrt ramdisk image can be flashed directly from the Netgear user interface, so that's the approach that I took.
I got the following snapshot image:
And uploaded it to the switch (that had Netgear firmware
220.127.116.11) to the first image slot via HTTP then rebooted the switch.
However after reboot I am not able to access the switch via SSH to proceed with the installation (scp sysupgrade, ..). The orange power light shines when it's powered on. I can not ping it. If I plug it into a different managed switch the port is shown as having link status of down.
Apparently the switch should be accessible on
192.168.1.1 on all ports without VLAN according to Support for RTL838x based managed switches - #956 by svanheule
Regardless I used the following to try
VLAN 100 on
port 1 without success:
# ip link add link enp2s0 name enp2s0.100 type vlan id 100 # ip link set dev enp2s0.100 up # ip addr add 192.168.1.10/24 dev enp2s0.100
As far as I can tell I did what I was supposed to and did not make a mistake.
Anyone have some more recent experience with
GS308T v1 or
RTL838x switch to share some advice?
Thanks in advance!
Looking at the other threads on the forum:
- no I did not accidentally flash
- i have tried
vlan 100to no avail
