Linksys E1000: Is it bricked?
I successfully flashed my firmware to DD-WRT V24-16785_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini_e1000v1.bin. I followed all directives as found for my E1000v1 router here: »www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Linksys_E1000. The only deviation was when I returned to »192.168.1.1 after the final 30-30-30 there wasnt an option that I could see to click reboot for router. So, I proceeded to configure, first with a password. Where things seemed to go south was I unchecked the http for configuration to https. When I returned to try and log in via https, the page couldnt be found. I tried a few times but no go. I thought Id reset the router to original settings and start over configuring it, so I pushed the reset button on router for about 30 seconds. Then the power light went out on router and only the wireless light stayed on. I unplugged the router hoping to power cycle it and when I plugged it back in all the lan lights and the internet light only stayed on solid. There wasnt a power nor wireless light. I am unable to ping the router with only a cat 5 plugged into a lan port.
I went through the same thing yesterday, but I did the 30/30/30 and went back to the original Cisco software. It did not come back easily.
I would try the 30/30/30 reset again.
I could not get pppoe to work and I found out that DD-WRT would not fix what is wrong with the E1000. I could not use Open Dns because the router does not honor manual dns entries. It uses the ISP dns first no matter what is manually entered. My D-Link does what I tell it to do.
Router Model Linksys E1000 v1
DD-WRT v24-sp2 (12/20/11) std-nokaid-small - build 18024
I have no problems with dns, my static is setup like this:
DNS 1 126.96.36.199 (opendns)
DNS 2 188.8.131.52 (google dns)
DNS 3 192.168.2.1 (router's dns which copies my RG's DNS, which is my ISP's DNS)
All my computers use opendns, google dns as backup, and my isp's dns if all else fails(which never happens).
Sometimes if you don't do a hard 30-30-30 BEFORE you flash, and the AFTER you flash, not all options work correctly.
