Ok I've tried my best guys, honest, yet I've had zero responses (either through PM or on here).. Can someone at least tell me how to trap the messages generated off a switchport? I've tried TCPDump, nada.. I've checked the syslog, kernel log.. I can't figure out why this stupid powerline adapter doesn't seem to want to link (in case you've missed my other posts, Belkin Gigabit Powerline adapter -- slow (very) blinking link light on the router, no connectivity.. All other GIG-e and FETH connections work fine).
The worst part is that DD-WRT and stock firmware works fine, but then there's other issues.. This build is the most stable wirelessly, but now I can't connect my powerline LAN.
I don't need to be spoonfed, but any tools you're aware of that can give me port level messages on why the negotiation is failing.. Or for that matter if you can point me to where I can replace the switch driver with what's in either the stock firmware or dd-wrt I would really appreciate it! This is my only roadblock on this router at the moment, and I'd like to be able to use my powerline network with everything else that's finally stable.
