If you have not converted (and do not know what the DSA setup should look like) I would recommend taking a backup of your current setup, force a flash without keeping config, backup the OOTB config, reconcile:
changes from the OOTB config into you config, and restore that backup. Not hard to do.
As far as DSA, search this forum which has many relevant threads which should yield requisite information.
Guarantee you that you ain't as old as me, (Out Of The Box), what gets generated by the default setup scripts on an install with no config, or what you might get with a run of firstboot (image dependant).
you can use "scp" to copy the file to the temp directory and then "ssh" to log into your router
if you are using windows I think that the free program "putty" contains ssh and scp and you can download it
@FCS001FCS , it is more a matter of removing the switch stanzas from the /etc/config/network config (switch, switch_vlan). Since you appear to be at default there really is not be much for you to do here. An example from a rango which will run as is (ignoring the obvious)
It was required to get the HW MAC set for the WAN device, the mamba has to set both WAN and LAN devices. Should be in agreement with your actual HW.
Just a note: I have no idea what the bot generated images use for build parameters on compiling packages. You might want to look at anything you consider critical to your use-case. To point openssl if used
Thanks, I got a Snapshot build done on Sunday and it worked fine (DSA=OK) but then I realised I forgot hostapd-common & wpad-basic since my wireless did not work.
I tried to build a new image but now there are big issues with the Snapshot buildbot: "Heads up, new fakeroot package has failed in a major way in buildbot, and the phase2 packages buildbot has failed to build any package for master for 1-2 days."
I am trying to install the packages manually via Putty but I am getting errors. How do I force an IPK install and ignore the kernel matching errors?
