Hello! I have a new e8450, just flashed that I am unable to get internet access through. Thinking I might have screwed something up, I did a hardware reset (used the reset button on the back). These are the things I've done after reseting the router: System Administration Router Password changed Ping, traceroute and nslookup tests are good System Software Update lists worked fine and shows a long list System Administration HTTPS Access Redirect to HTTPS checked and is redirecting System Administratioon SSH Access Interface = lan only No other settings have been touched at all, not even changing Wireless SSID, encryption type, radios are still off, etc. Status Overview: Model: Linksys E8450 (UBI) Firmware Version: OpenWrt 22.03.3 r20028-43d71ad93e / LuCI openwrt-22.03 branch git-22.361.69894-438c598 In Network Interfaces is shows the lan is fine (I'm connected to it, ethernet from laptop to lan port 1 on router). Other land properties: IPv4: 192.168.1.1 IPv6: whatever::1/60 WAN: Protocol: DHCP client IPv4: 192.168.10.166/24 IPv6: none WAN6: Protocol: DHCPv6 client This router's WAN port is connected with cat6 to lan port 1 on the back off a Verizon FiOS G1100. This will be gone once I can get the new router to connect to the internet. G1100 is DHCP server, dishing out 192.168.10.0/24 IPs, matches e8450's WAN's 192.168.10.166 ip. I have confirmed I can use my own router without the G1100 as I had another linksys as the only router in the house for a week and everything works fine, so no need to set the G1100 to bridge mode. Connecting the OpenWRT directly to broadband's ether cable shows it can get an IP from the ISP, but no joy for anything connected to the router. I've searched the forums for other thread's for this type of issue, but none of the things on those older threads helped. I'm a DBA by trade, no nework experience other than I know what TCP/IP is, what a router is, and other basic network things, but no idea about anything else. If I can get this OpenWRT router to give internet access to whatever is plugged into it, I can get rid of FiOS' G1100, which tells Verizon what your passwords are the minute you change them (you can see your new passwords by logging in to FiOS website and looking them up in your account settings...) Ready to get you whatever information you need right away. Thanks in advance!
What is the complete IP info from your computer plugged into the e8450?
- IP address
- subnet mask
- DNS server
from the computer that is plugged in, what happens if you run the following ping tests:
- 192.168.10.1 (I assume that is the IP address of the Verizon rotuer)
I guess asking the questions alone fixed the issue. I turned off WiFi adapter completely off as before to make sure the only valid network was the ethernet to the OpenWRT and ran the tests you requested. Unlike the hours I spent on it yesteday, they all worked. Not even the pings were working yesterday.
Regardless, here's the info you requested, as I still have to disconnect the router rom the g1100 and make sure it still works after I connect it directly to ISP's ethernet cable.
Maybe you can still see something that should be not configured/misconfigured that could cause more issues later.

I swear I spent hours on this yesterday and it was not working even after 3 resets using the button on the back of the unit.
I'm curious, is there some sort of time that has to pass between connecting the router and it starting to fully work? It's the only thing I can think of.
I don't think it was time... it might have been an issue with the computer's IP addresses (wifi + wired, maybe it didn't like it for some reason, etc.).
Hard to know. But the great thing is that it's working now... sometimes going back to first principles is the way to find issue (or confirm operation).
If your problem is solved, please consider marking this topic as [Solved]. See How to mark a topic as [Solved] for a short how-to.
Yup, incredible. The moment you try to show someone how something does not work, it refuses to malfunction...
I have disconnected the entire setup, plugged the OpenWRT's WAN port to the ISP's ethernet cable and everything still working. Even pulled the power plug from the G1100 to be absolutely sure it was no where to be found in the airwaves.
I'll definitely mark the post as resolved.
Thank you very much anyway. Were it not for performing the steps you requested I'd still be wondering.
You're welcome! Glad I could help.
