I am absolutely struggling to get openwrt on this thing, any help would be appreciated please!
I have one isolated machine with win server 2008 wired directly to the router (normal port, not internet port). No internet connection or lan of any kind outside of this one wire.
I have assigned the host machine the static ip of 192.168.11.2/255.255.255.0 ~ gateway & dns: 192.168.11.1
The image I am trying to push is: /snapshots/trunk/ar71xx/openwrt-ar71xx-generic-wzr-hp-ag300h-squashfs-tftp.bin
I have setup a static ARP route to the routers "lan" MAC address
arp -s 192.168.11.1 [MACADDRESS]
I have also tried the hard coded mac above:
arp -s 192.168.11.1 02-aa-bb-cc-dd-20
My usual method of trying to push this thing is using:
tftp -i 192.168.11.1 put openwrt-ar71xx-generic-wzr-hp-ag300h-squashfs-tftp.bin
I have tried waiting at various times of the router booting up to execute the command: a couple seconds after plugging it in, before the router is even plugged in, after the blue pc icon flashes once, etc. Each ends in a time out.
I have no idea what else to do, other than use ssh from dd-wrt, which i would rather avoid because if I brick the router i am out of options. (not sure if I should use a factory or sysupgrade version for that method...)
I do not have a switch on hand to try the suggestion a few posts up.
So if anyone can share their success story I would be greatly appreciative!
