I had been getting very well with LEDE and Openwrt before a critical accident happened two weeks ago.
A few months ago, I already succeeded in flashing LEDE(openwrt) firmware into my router and happily enjoyed LEDE which gave me wonderful functionalities including tftpd, samba, NAS etc.
Lately I challenged myself to deal with Transmission, the torrent client, which is my best interest, and I also succeeded in installing and configuration and had used it until I failed in re-flashing the same firmware after realizing that Transmission was not working properly.
I have tried to re-flash the firmware again and again, which resulting in same failures.
- Router(or AP) : Buffalo AirStation WZR-HP-G450H (manufactured by BUFFALO INC in 2012)
- OS : Windows 10
- Procedures I followed according to the guide of LEDE
- IP confiruration
Change pc side ip 192.168.11.2
subnet mask 255.255.255.0,
gate ip : 192.168.11.1
- ARP route
netsh interface ipv4 add neighbors 10 192.168.11.1 02-aa-bb-cc-dd-23
- Upload firmware
tftp -i 192.168.11.1 PUT lede-17.01.4-ar71xx-generic-wzr-hp-g450h-squashfs-factory.bin * 'DIAG' LED not flashing rapidly.
- Result from 3
Transmission completed, 31,525,434 bytes in 1sec, 31,525,434/sec * it looks succeeded without 'DIAG' LED not blinking.
- Make IP of my pc with DHCP, remove ARP route and the router never recovered from bricked state.
- IP confiruration
I guess the firmware is maybe permanently dead. I have survived my router more than 10 times from brick and I want to think of buying new router after listening carefully to the experienced people here in the forum, if there would be no solution.
One thing very wired for the what I noticed during my procedure is that local network connection repeats "identifying..." and "not connected" and at the same time the 'DIAG' LED of the router keeps on and off repeatedly whether the serial line is connected or not.
Is there any one to help me to reach further challenge and get happiness?
