Am having problems trying to install openwrt on D-Link DIR-835 (KA2IR835A1) router currently running stock firmware version 1.04. I used the following page (see https://openwrt.org/toh/d-link/dir-835 ) as instructions and the source of the files. Flashing lede-17.01.4-ar71xx-generic-dir-835-a1-squashfs-factory.bin from the stock firmware seems to work fine but when the router reboots itself at the end of the flashing procedure (or at least that's what I think it does) the router light stays steady yellow and I can't ping the router at neither 192.168.0.1 nor 192.168.1.1 Rebooting the router again manually does not help, still shows steady yellow light after reboot and still can't be pinged, connected to and used.
Was able restore the router back to the original stock firmware by going into the emergency recovery mode and flashing the original firmware from there. With the original firmware the router seems to work fine.
Any ideas? Thanks
