Reverting from DD-WRT to OEM firmware
1 o VCC 2 o GND 3 o RX 4 o TX
- The USB port is where you can connect an external USB hard drive or flash drive.
- Which can do a multitude of things. You can use in as a NAS, storage for a FTP
- server, use Optware to run external programs like torrent software, samba for
- sharing files to network, share a USB printer with network...
- The list of possibilities is long, it just takes a little research.
- ProFTPd is included in most the newer builds of dd-wrt.
- Check the features chart to be sure.
jffs Issue in DD-WRT
This problem is caused by the firmware encountering an unmarked bad block during an
- erase operation while attempting to setup a JFFS2 filesystem on device /dev/mtd/4.
Most people will probably never experience this problem. The AC66U, the D1800H, and
- the Buffalo WLI-H4-D1300 Media Bridge use the same Samsung flash memory chip.
- One person on one of the AC66U threads reported having the problem; here's a link to his post.
If you have the problem, you will not be able to create or copy directories and files to /jffs.
- Here are some example error messages: (this list was shortened to save space - it can go on for several pages)
Also the Status -> Router webpage will show that JFFS2 has no free space.
To fix this problem try the following at a command line prompt:
This command erases and marks bad any bad blocks encountered so that they can be "skipped"
- and formats the partition to JFFS2 specifications.
I believe the firmware uses the mtd erase command which seems to fail at handling bad blocks.
- The flash_erase command needs to be run only once.
