You might try to TFTP, but you risk bricking it. If you do brick it, you'll probably need serial recovery.


How complicated is it to do that? Where is the serial port located?
This page mentions that Lohuis routers have an emergency firmware recovery via FTFP in case of bricks: http://www.manualslib.com/manual/625206/Lohuis-Networks-Lohu-5160p.html?page=17

It's called TFTP, not FTFP. Read the Wiki, inform yourself: http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/TFTP_flash

I'm still using one of those routers and it's very fast and reliable. After a lot of experimenting I found dd-wrt v15693 to be the most stable build for me. It just works as expected. Anything after that build has some serious issues, including v16214.


I know I'm over a year late- but what did you find other than dropbear doesn't run on boot?

I've had no issues with mine beyond that (and a few tweaks at boot time), and I've been running 16214 for several years.

For what it's worth- I gave up. I'm running OpenWRT now. The initial flash disables the Wi-Fi, so you'll need to set it up over the LAN. I didn't. I ended up building a JTAG cable out of a PL-2303HX USB serial adapter.

Although LuCI and the configuration bits are archaic, I'm likely to stick with it since I get a functional system that isn't 5 years out of date.
