Thanks this worked on my older system and cleared up the DHCP lease time clock not decrementing. It also loaded on the new V8 system but alas, I forgot to change the default IP and it also exhibited the same issue I had before with the other system in that the DHCP lease time clock fails to decrement. it stays on 1 day 00:00.

Can you point me to the proceedure to change the software loaded to use the MAC that comes with the unit?

[edit] changing the mac address

login with telnet

then nvram set et0macaddr=00:11:22:33:44:55 nvram commit

this will stay until you reset your unit to factory defaults. i'm currently working on a new vxworks killer which automaticly uses the mac address originally defined by the unit. so this change is not required anymore in future.


Thank you Brainslayer for the help on changing the MAC address it works fine and I look forward to the change in the file vxworkskillerv8.bin.

I am still having problems though with the DHCP lease time not decrementing. It is stuck at 1 Day 00:00.

I have not found any topics on this on the forum. Maybe I am not doing the right search.

Any ideas?

Also I find that my login and password work for this web connection, but does not allow me to log in to DD-WRT.COM forum. How do I resolve that?
