Hello gents,
I have a very strange situation.
I have a Archer C9V1 (EU) and a tried to install the last version (beta) of ddwrt.(12-04-2017-r33986)
I install successfully this file: factory-to-ddwrt.bin. After this step when I tried to install the second bin file archer-c9v1-webflash.bin this hasn't been possible. I have to admit that I forgot to make a hard reset (30-30-30) of the router before to start to install the ddwrt firmware.
At this moment the router is working fine but the wan led is all the time orange and when I tried to make a repeater bridge for both frequencies(2.4 and 5 GHz) connection the router freeze. Is working fine with one wifi band (2.4)
I suppose that the router is not bricked since most of the function are active, but since the second bin file wasn't installed I think the firmware is not installed.
Any advice ?
Thank you in advance.

My Archer C9 v3 bricked different from anything described.
It happened while working, few hours after I enabled jffs.

Router on power-on brely flashes all lights, then turns off all but WPS light.

In this mode I can enter recovery page at http://192.168.0.1, but any firmware I try to restore it with fails at 40%.

I can't enter standard recovery mode by holding reset during power up. It always goes to this single wps light mode.

Used dd-wrt on different routers for years, but nothing like this ever happened. (hw issue?)




Exactly what happened to me Sad Confused Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

Happened to me as well, AFTER a successful implementation of factory-to-ddwrt. I tried to update to the latest build, now I'm bricked on a WPS light and I don't know what to do.

Same. Nothing works when I try. I am able to upload a bin file using Tftpd, but when I check 192.168.0.1 I get the recovery page. Tried to upload everything US official fw, EU offical fw, dd-wrt fw, even D9's fw... nothing...

Also, that damn recovery page always fails at 40% on Edge. On Chrome it fails right away...

Did you fixed it yet?
