i apologize right away for my massive stupidity:
i accidentally flashed the openwrt-15.05.1-ar71xx-generic-tl-wr841n-v10-squashfs-factory.bin firmware on my router, i actually wanted to flash the hedy-1.0.0-tl-wr841-v10-sysupgrade.bin firmware (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freifunk).
now i can see the LEDE wifi and i can also connect to it, but i do not have access to the router via 192.168.1.1. (as described here: https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-quick-start/basic_wifi) in order to reflash the freifunk firmware.
is there any other way to access my router on the LEDE wifi?
thanks in advance!
WiFi is disabled by default and has to be manually enabled on a new flash, unless you ticked the box to save your current config... if you did not tick that box, you're likely connected to someone else's network.
thanks for your reply.
i followed your link, a few lines down it says:
Caveat: Failsafe mode is only available if you have installed firmware from a SquashFS image, that includes the required read-only root partition. To verify whether your device has the SquashFS root partition, check for “squashfs” either in the LEDE image name or perform the following check on your device: grep squash /proc/mounts
i tried and entered that line but didn't get any response from the terminal.
does that mean there's no failsafe mode available with the image i accidentally flashed (openwrt-15.05.1-ar71xx-generic-tl-wr841n-v10-squashfs-factory.bin)?
