No Wifi Connect on RT-AC68R with r27944: see Ticket #4884

comment:6 Changed 23 months ago by Francois

Confirm: D-Link 868L (Rev. A) with build 10-09-2015-r27944.

Needed to reflash with previous build in D-Link's recovery mode. After a few tries, finally could recovery dd-wrt firmware.

For anyone else that has a bricked router:

  1. Set PC IPv4 address to 192.168.0.100/24, disable firewall, IPv6, QoS, etc. (and other programs/settings that may control the connection)
  2. Connect router and PC (Port 1)
  3. Power-on router with reset button pushed for 1/3 seconds
  4. Open FireFox? (other browsers did not work) - go to 192.168.0.1 (if you're not getting the recovery page, try to hold the reset button a bit longer and refresh the page a couple of times)
  5. Flash the official D-Link 868L firmware (may take a few tries before successful), and you're should be back running on stock firmware
  6. Change IP-address to 192.168.1.100/24
  7. Flash 09-28-2015-r27858 build (upgrade with factory-to-ddwrt.bin, perform factory reset (or nvram erase), flash dir868a-webflash.bin, factory reset) -> See 868L Wiki for details

The router should only been soft-bricked, so keep patience. If it is not working, try another PC.

---

Hope the issue can be solved. :)

If possible, could you remove the build from the download section?

Netgear R7000 - r27944 breaks Wifi

SIDs are available, DHCP Leases seem to work (slow) but nothing else ...

Reflash to r27858 restores functionality.

r27944 bricked several Broadcom units, it should be removed from the ftp. http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=286418&start=30

Problem still exits on Netgear R7000 on both bands, cannot connect to wifi on build 27992

Reverting to 27858 works.

Broadcom stability issues seem to persist with r28072. Some units reboot after some time, others reboot when working in WebGUI: http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=990267#990267

I experienced instability on my Buffalo 1750DHP. Once it went unstable, I got to a point where it was crashing each time I tried to do a nvram commit from the CLI. It got to a point where the web UI would ask me to set an initial password, but the router would crash trying to save the new password.

Reverted to an old build (26947) and everything went back to normal. So issue seems to have something to do with NVRAM.

NVRAM-related crashes on Broadcom fixed in: r28085,r28102-r28108,r28209.

Additionally, NVRAM backup variables are sorted with r28138-r28139.

See related tickets: #4883, #4724 (Broadcom), #4742 (Atheros).

comment:30 Changed 21 months ago by otyg_000

the Linksys / Cisco EA6500 V1 is still having bootloops since r27944 (also a broadcom based router, BCM5300 chip rev 1 )

I made a new ticket #4953, but it seems to be the same bug here. - revisions r27944+(to current) will cause the router to bootloop, and the only way to recover is with TFTP and flash a older ddwrt revision.(r27858)

More info:

The last proper working revision was r27858 (on FTP)- so since the FTP skips to r27944 it could be r27859-r27944 that contains the bug (I cannot test individual builds, if they can be provided I can narrow it down to the exact revision)
