WR850G erratic rebooting
Picked up a WR850G v2 from a dude on craigslist with the intention of flashing dd-wrt onto it. From the get go, the router reboots erratically, sometimes even tumbling into an endless reboot cycle.
Strange thing is that every once and a while i'll come back to it, plug it in, and get the thing operational for 20-30 minutes max, 3 minutes on average. Its been enough to first flash Motorola's 6.14 onto it, then a mini version of dd-wrt.
When i am able to login to the dd-wrt GUI i notice that the mac address is generic.
Just wanting to know if there is a fix for this or if I should just throw away the router. Thanks.
