well i have a 2100 fon running 239mhz no problems
its running DD-WRT v24-sp1 (07/26/0 std
i have 5 heatsinks there... one on memory chip, 3 next to the stock heatsink and one behind...
with no external case, rocks a lot
this is my first post here, I am looking to get hold of a fon router and and hove one that seems to be broken so am just wondering if anyone knows what could cause this problem;
On plugging in the power cable the power led comes on, but when you plug in the ethernet cable the internet led flashes, the WLAN never lights up and it doesnt broadcast a wireless conenction point for my laptop.
Could it be someone has tried to overclock it and bricked it??
This is the model number which unfortunately means nothing to me;
Would flashing this unit make it useable again possibly??

You could try the 30-30-30 reset.
While the Fon is plugged in, hold in the reset button for 30 seconds.
While still holding reset button, unplug it and hold for 30 seconds.
While STILL holding the reset button, plug the Fon back in.
So - you're holding it for 90 seconds total.
This should reset to factory defaults.
If you still can't get some kind of IP address via DHCP, it may be bricked.
You can try to ping the default IP's by connecting directly to the fon via cat-5 cable.
As far as default IP's, can't remember off top of my head,
but they are listed in the forums.
Do you know if someone had flashed this with DD-WRT?
Or was this running Fon firmware? _________________ Soylent Green Is People !

Hi BrainSlayer.. I just changed my firmware of my router(dlink dir300) to ddwrt v24sp1 2 week ago since i am having problem with the stock firmware. After toying it for 2 days,i find the firmware very good.
Recently,i came across this thread which teach u how to overclock your router cpu.So i decided give it a try. i encounter some problem(the cpu clock still the same).
root@DD-WRT:~# nvram set cpuclk=200
root@DD-WRT:~# nvram commit
root@DD-WRT:~# startservice overclock
size = 196608
unknown board or no redboot found
board is now clocked at 200 mhz, please reboot
i don't know what is causing the problem. Am i missing out any steps?
