I ask help aurrouter ubiquiti.
I installed the fw dd-wrt, I bought the license but can not activate it.
After entering the activation key, the router will restart, after restart firmware is still in trial mode.
I tried more and more times with the same result.
I did reset and again loaded the fw, yet attempted activation. Same result: the router says "Activation Done, the System will now reboot."
After reboot, firmware is still in trial mode.
Can someone help me?

Can someone from DD-WRT please respond to this and provide a solution.
I have just bought a professional license and am having the same issue with ubiquity airrouter.
ie , I will insert the activation code, for a split second there will be an message saying "invalid code" .
Then it will say "activation done. the system will now reboot "after which it will stay in trial mode.
note: seems that every time I log back into the router, the system key is different from the one that I registered with.
1.Power off the device and power it on again while holding the reset button for about >20 seconds. The color LED signal strengths must flash.
2.Flash NS5M-DD-WRT.bin using tftp to 192.168.1.20 in binary mode
3.Windows: cmd and type tftp -i 192.168.1.20 put NS5M-DD-WRT.bin
4. Wait for about 5 minutes (devices and firmware depending) - do not power off the device ! On version with signal LEDs, the LEDs blinking in different colors during firmware upgrade.
5.after successfully flashing the unit will be accessible with web on 192.168.1.1
After logging in to the Activation Center, copy the entire System key from NanoStation and Activate. Return the entire generated key back to the NanoStation.
After the reboot, Trial disappears, and you can save settings and perform Backup. Interestingly, the activation remains after upgrading to the latest fw, but also when re-uploading fw in binary mode.
Perhaps my approach will help.
Do not upgrade to newer versions (r36330 or r36410). In these versions, setting up does not work and I could not connect to the AP on the 52 5260MHz channel (5180MHz connected correctly). AP sees, I'll join and will not go to security settings anymore. If I choose manually, it will not connect and Channel Unknown.
