Ubiquiti EdgeRouter Lite and OpenWrt

Hi

I tried to flash Ubiquiti ER Lite. I followed the steps given like here - https://openwrt.org/toh/ubiquiti/edgerouter.lite

Yet failed. After flashing I tried to load the console page. But it is not connecting. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

I'm not sure what you mean "console page". After installing, connect your PC to the "eth0" port on the Edgerouter-Lite and access OpenWrt at 192.168.1.1. It should answer pings and ssh connections-- and if you installed a release build it has a web page.

I tried to access webpage but didnt work and tried to ping but got timeout

I used this build http://downloads.openwrt.org/releases/19.07.4/targets/octeon/generic/openwrt-19.07.4-octeon-erlite-squashfs-sysupgrade.tar

Make sure to connect to "eth0" no other port will work.

If it's not booting take the USB flashdrive out and mount both partitions on a computer to check that the files are in the right place.

Do you have a serial cable? The "console" port uses a standard Cisco-type connection.

I reflashed and now I am able to ping.

But how do I access web page?

Thanks

Open a web browser and enter the IP of the router, then press enter.

Yes, I tried that way. Its not working

My computer connected port 0 and entered IP 192.168.1.1 in browser. Nothing happened.

I am able to ping. Any help appreciated.

In the installation instruction this command I executed.

wget https://downloads.lede-project.org/releases/17.01.1/targets/octeon/generic/lede-17.01.1-octeon-erlite-squashfs-sysupgrade.tar -O- | tar -x

Is it a right one?

Thanks

That is a very old version but it should still have web administration.

Disconnect your PC from all other networks either wired or wifi while you try to access the new install.

Something always happens with a browser. Was there an error page?

My mistake. In chrome if I enter by default it appends https. I modified to http and able to access now. Thanks for the help

I would suggest right away upgrade to 19.07.4 or repeat the flash process with 19.07.4. Do not use the old LEDE version in production.

Someone with this device in his hands should update the installation instructions on https://openwrt.org/toh/ubiquiti/edgerouter.lite#installation, in order to avoid other users installing 17.01 while the datatable above shows up to date 19.07.4 support.

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.

I did submit a PR which would generate a flashable image for the EdgeRouter Lite but I gave up after waiting for a very long time. For now you need to manually create partitions etc.

Mind to tell us which PR (link)? Just connect bits and pieces.

Hi

I tried to setup the router after flashing.

I understood that eth0 is LAN port and eth1 is wan port and eth2 is not usable.

I tried to add a ubnt switch EdgeSwitch 5XP. So that I can connect my console and PC. But If I connect I am not able access internet or even any router configuration pages ( both router and switch ). If connect my pc either only in edgerouter or edgeswitch it works. What is the mistake I am doing? Any one able to give some suggestions.

Thanks

eth2 is fully usable but by default not attached to a network. To make it a second LAN port, go to Network-Interfaces, edit LAN, click Physical Settings, and check eth2 along with eth0.

If you have OpenWrt on the switch you need to change its IP address to something other than 192.168.1.1 so there are not two devices with the same IP in your network. If you are not running OpenWrt on the switch questions about its configuration would be for the Ubiquity forum.

I have added this usefull information to the devicepage https://openwrt.org/toh/ubiquiti/edgerouter.lite#installation1
