Hey everyone.

Like the subject states, I have a WNR2000v3 that's having some issues right now. I noticed over the week that my DHCPd was starting to drop and not renew client ips. First with one of the other client systems on the LAN, that I don't use. I thought that it may have been the DCHP_BROADCAST_FLAG setting in Vista, so I hacked the registry and tried to fix it, to no avail. The second client that dropped off the LAN was my Android Device.

Now, I know for a fact that Android actually FOLLOWS standards so I wasn't worried about the Vista Machine after that fell off since it indicated to me that the machine wasn't at fault after all.

My focus is now on the Router. I'm running a WNR2000 v3 with the 2.24 Beta software from BrainSlayer. Everything was running fine for about 3 or so months till all this started to happen.

Like I said, I started having clients falling off the LAN and it alarmed me enough to where I was actually trying to revert back to the Stock Firmware so that I could start diagnosing issues.

I booted the router into TFTP boot mode in order to do so. The TFTP PUT transfers over just fine but then the router hangs and doesn't actually flash the file over to the NVRAM like it's supposed to.

I then tried another experiment. I got a copy of the beta from the download area and again tried to use the web interface to do the reinstall and pray method and guess what? The file fails to update again. Then I tried to TFTP it over, and again it failed.

I tried doing some looking around and noticed the reason none of my clients a no longer connect is that the wifi radio can't select a proper channel upon which to broadcast. I do, however, have full LAN capability via plugging the clients I can into the switch directly so I'm boggled. Any advice as to what I can try next without having to JTAG the damn thing since well, I don't have a JTAG/Serial > USB line.
