MikroTik RouterBOARD 951G 2HnD

TFTP Boot OpenWrt manually

  1. boot the RouterOS Image and connect to one of ports 2-5
  2. acquire DHCP IP and telnet to the router ( for me) user is "admin" password empty (hit enter)
  3. Set RouterOS to boot from DHCP once
    /system routerboard settings set boot-device=try-ethernet-once-then-nand
  4. switch to port 1
  5. configure and start DHCP and TFTP daemons (dnsmasq see next topic)
  6. reboot router (router should download and boot OpenWrt by TFTP)
  7. plug your PC to one of ports 2-5 again and ask for DHCP
  8. telnet to and enjoy

manually start dnsmasq as DHCP and TFTP server only

Give yourself an IP within the range subnet, then start dnsmasq:

dnsmasq -i eth0 --dhcp-range=, \
--dhcp-boot=openwrt-ar71xx-nand-vmlinux-initramfs.elf \
--enable-tftp --tftp-root=/tftp/ -d -u test -p0 -K --log-dhcp --bootp-dynamic
