Re: latest firmware

Since you say it is running you must have recovered the router.

Make sure that auto update is disabled so no unexpected surprises.

Re: latest firmware

Sorry I have not been able to recover router. Cannot get a new firmware load via TFTP to work either. Not sure what else to try. Any ideas ?

   "Cannot" is not a useful problem description.  It does not say what
you did.  It does not say what happened when you did it.  As usual,
showing actual actions (commands) with their actual results (error
messages, LED indicators, ...) can be more helpful than vague
descriptions or interpretations.

   Not sure what you _did_ try.

 

   The TFTP recovery scheme is a multi-step procedure which offers
multiple opportunities for user input, hence user error.  Saying that
you tried TFTP, with no details (your preparation steps, the actual
command which you used, the actual error message which was emitted, and
so on), conveys practically no useful information.  Especially when
using a command-line program, copy+paste is your friend.

 

> [...] Any ideas ?


   As a start, provide a problem description with some useful
information?  What, exactly, does "bricked" mean to you, in terms of LED
status/activity and/or router response to a web browser or TFTP client
program?
