I have the v2000 and I installed the firmware posted on 12/26 but now none of the ethernet ports seem to be working. I can connect to the router with wifi and the menu seems to be working etc, but it won't pickup the modem or any PC's plugged into it... any ideas?

apexj, it seems as if you have the same symptoms thebudman420 had/has? if so, you could have a different switch version, and this firmware will not work for you.

Thanks for the reply. Is there a way to get it back to the POS Belkin firmware?

back on page 7 about halfway down LOM posted a revert and instructions, you must have just missed it. It appears to work, but I guarantee nothing.

Thanks, that did work... I will try again later when a new one comes out... for now, this goes back into the closet.

Now, how do I get my WAN port to work when assigned to LAN? It seems like that port is passing no non-broadcast traffic OUT!

What's really odd is that doing the reverse (upstream router to LAN, and computer to WAN port) seems to work! I really don't want to do that, though... if the dd-wrt router ever loses its settings*, I don't want it to break the upstream network.

Also: whenever I log in to reply to a post, it directs me to the root of the forums!

* I've had this randomly happen three times, with two different pieces of hardware.

EDIT: looks like I found the reason: a messed-up cable. Broadcom Advanced Control Suite tells me pairs 3 and 4 have status "short".

Thanks for your fantastic work so far!

Will there eventually be an universal version which supports the 8366SR and the 8366RB interface on the v2?

Would be a new years dream come true!

"It looks like this archive ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/GPL/D … ar.bz2.zip has all many files required for the switch driver. Just look in Kernel/linux-2.6.20/drivers/net/rtl8366sr."

Okay, my WAN port behavior is getting even stranger: wireshark on wifi and logs on upstream router tell me that the dhcp packets go like this:

computer's request -> dd-wrt lan -> dd-wrt wan -> upstream router

router's reply -> dd-wrt wan -> ???? (it gets lost here!)


The "short" was a red herring... it seems the upstream non-gigabit router ties pairs 3 and 4 to ground.

EDIT: So, for now I've reverted back to the stock firmware.

the v2 (ralink rt3052) based device is now working and tested. attached the firmware which can be installed directly from belkin web interface.
features like nas/samba/ftp are included as well as 3g/umts support.


do not install any other firmware than this. the realtek 8366rb switch is very special. so use only the firmware made for this device. otherwise ethernet wont work


Excellent work mate. Do you have any hints how you pulled it off? I'm quite eager to learn how you've pulled it off as I've got my [as of yet unknown] version arriving shortly.

tftp-hpa is not the easiest tftp server to set up, one has to edit config and scripts file first.
There is from what I can see no linux gui based tftp servers like tftpd32 for windows.

Here is a revert file which should work, unpack the binary from the rar archive and upload it via wireless to dd-wrt firmware upgrade gui page.


Do you have something to put back the f5d8235v2_ww_2.01.08.bin via the serial console flash? Use of this file fails to boot, dwrt was on there and booting to serial port with nothing else working (though my XP Pro pc said ethernet port link up), turns out the chip is the SR (hw 2110/2000 depending on where you look on the bottom). Could not get to the dd-wrt web page Crying or Very sad

So I have a serial port header soldered in and got option 2 to load (using FDMI usb to ttl converter cable). File starts to come down but a stream of bad check sum messages stream in. After flashing and booting the console shows:

0

3: System Boot system code via Flash.
## Booting image at bf050000 ...
Bad Magic Number,48445230


BTW the tftp server I am using is known working, we use it to load our engineering software builds on our products.

Shucks, never mind, after looking over the thread several times, I tried hexedit of the default binary as suggested by LOM, loaded that new image onto the tftp server as test.bin. Rebooted and via menu option 2 was able to reload the router. Not sure if it is truly up and running. . .will test at home later tonight.


Did a full 30 seconds reset. Router boots as normally (Ethernet port LEDs walk up and down....)

So Back to watching for a better release for this thing, limited usb connectivity and sharing controls makes this thing a dog.

Edit, its good to go.

This is working great on my router, SAMBA fired up nicely.

Excellent work brain slayers. Let me know if I can help anyway.


side note: does anyone know the best way to reenable port-forwarding loopback without adding additional iptable rules?
