Posted: Tue Jan 29, 2019 22:42 Post subject: Problem after upgrading to 38381
I got a linksys E900 with default firmware
Tried to upgrade to dd-wrt.v24-38381_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini-e900
All done throught default firmware update, done some time, 30-30-30 reset and thought i got it!
Went to browser 192.168.1.1 and was asked to create a new user and password, now with dd-wrt webgui. Applied it and never got the webgui again, just "waiting for response" in any browser. Went to check my phone for wifi connection and found a dd-wrt open network, connected on it and works fine, but no password and no access to 192.168.1.1 either
So i went to support and found i needed to tftp it to another firmware, dd-wrt.v24-38507_NEWD-2_K3.x_mega-e900, that works better on my broadcom device. Hard at beginning to find the right second so the tftp works, got it and waited the 2min requested and then 30-30-30 reset.
Went to browser and got webgui from dd-wrt at 192.168.1.1 again! Filled the admin and password and pressed apply and hang there "waiting for response" all over again.
So now i thought, use the tftp and go back to linksys default firmware. DOne all the process all over again, now with FW_E900_1.0.09.002_US_20180808. It said sucessfull in tftp application, done the 2min wait, then 30-30-30 reset, but wont work, got stucked with dd-wrt wifi and no 192.168.1.1 access

Note to others: this continues from the build thread here.

I'm confused vs your build thread edit that said:
There was a trick to tftp it, done and now working with ur tip! Thx!

But otherwise, if you see the TTL=100 right at powerup, and the TFTP runs ok, but is still showing DD, try an older OEM build. _________________ #NAT/SFE/CTF: limited speed w/ DD#Repeater issues#DD-WRT info: FAQ, Builds, Types, Modes, Changes, Demo#

Sorry about that edit, it was a false positive, because when i try to do tftp and says all done, the 192.168.1.1 asks me for password change and then nothing more.
About the tftp, all builds less then 4mb (old and new ones) all says OK when tftp2 completes, but after the wait time and hard reset, simply they wont work. Any build larger or oficial tftp wont finish
