- Under the most recent Attitude Adjustment repository, under ar71xx, find the image named "openwrt-ar71xx-ubnt-rs-squashfs-factory.bin" or "openwrt-ar71xx-ubnt-rs-jffs2-factory.bin".
- Connect to the Routerstation's WAN port, the LAN ports will not work for loading the image.
- Boot the system in recovery mode by holding the reset switch until the RF LED lights up while powering on the device.
- Set your PC to a static address of 192.168.1.100.
- Check connectivity by pinging to 192.168.1.20; there may be an issue with the automatic ethernet polarity negotiation not working properly; if that is the case try to connect through a reverse polarity cable.
- Upload the new firmware to the device through WAN port using TFTP on the default IP address, 192.168.1.20.
GNU/Linux: tftp 192.168.1.20 -m binary -c put openwrt-ar71xx-ubnt-rs-squashfs-factory.bin Windows: tftp -i 192.168.1.20 put openwrt-ar71xx-ubnt-rs-squashfs-factory.bin
- Connect to 192.168.1.1 on the LAN port after router reboots.
GNU/Linux: telnet 192.168.1.1
If you have already installed OpenWrt and like to reflash for e.g. upgrading to a new OpenWrt version you can upgrade using the mtd command line tool. It is important that you put the firmware image into the ramdisk (/tmp) before you start flashing.
- Browse to http://192.168.1.1/cgi-bin/luci/mini/system/upgrade/ LuCI Upgrade URL
- Upload TRX file to LuCI
- Wait for reboot
- via tftp mode
- put RouterStation into tftp mode by holding reset button when turning it on
tftp 192.168.1.20 -m binary -c put openwrt-ar71xx-ubnt-rs-squashfs-factory.bin
- run tftp command from same directory where you downloaded firmware
- wait for 5 minutes and then you can reboot the router if it doesn't reboot automatically
- Note that the RouterStation does not have a LED labeled DMZ, but instead LED labeled RF.
- The RouterStation only has hardware button which is the reset button.
- Unplug the router's power cord.
- Connect the router's WAN port directly to your PC.
- Configure your PC with a static IP address between 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.254. E. g. 192.168.1.2 (gateway and DNS is not required).
- Plug the power on and wait for the RF LED to light up.
- While the RF LED is on immediately press Reset button few times.
- If done right the RF LED will quickly flash 3 times every second.
- You should be able to telnet to the router at 192.168.1.1 now (no username and password)
