I wanted to install dd-wrt firmware on Belkin Pre-N F5D8230-4 (version 1002) router and I installed it using tftp. It was installed without any errors but it bricked the router. I am not able to get IP thru dhcp nor I can ping it using static 192.168.2.x or 192.168.1.x ip address. Also, wireless LED on the router is off.
Btw, I used "dd-wrt.v24_generic_nokaid" to flash this router. I would really appreciate if someone can guide me to unbrick this router.
I was able to unbrick this router by installing original belkin firmware after many tries. Btw, can anyone pls tell me which version of dd-wrt will work on this router. I have tried following dd-wrt firmware versions :
Yes i did, however the thread was no less valuable to me as i was installing this morning.
Maybe consider it a bump, for my own sake.
I will take a look at that other svn you mentioned. I did not get very far with compiling the last time i tried though...
Don't give up. It works for me like a charm. I am using dd-wrt.v24_atheros_wifi.bin /I replaced the wifi card with atheros one./
Try ver 24 sp1 first.
I'd suggest full reset before flashing the fw.
1. Power off
2. Press and hold the reset button.
3. Power on and wait about a minute.
4. Release the reset button and wait a minute.
5. Use tftp method to flash the dd-wrt if necessary.
Try to connect your PC to WAN if dhcp doesn't work on LAN side. If that is the case then report it to BS.
