Try starting from step 11 on the install/setup guide:

Reflashing it nearly always works.

Try this linux script for a quick flash (nearly always worked for me until I bricked myself out one day, now waiting on a cable for a serial boot);

sudo ./easyflash eth0 openwrt-atheros-root.squashfs openwrt-atheros-vmlinux.lzma

Good luck,

Tell us how it goes.

if you gave it a static ip then you need to know what subnet that was on and set your own machine to one on that subnet, you will then be able to access it. I guess from the 169 address your machine is trying to get an IP through dhcp and failing.

Have a guess at what IP you may have given it then go on that subnet and use nmap to ping scan the network with

nmap -sP 192.168.0.0/24

replacing 192... with your subnet.

If you could go for a larger subnet by decreasing the 24.

Hi digi

I vaguely remember setting my ip to 192.168.1.1 for the router . So i have assingned my pc to 192.168.1.2 and subnet to 255.255.255.0 I tried nmap with following command nmap retruned saying 192.168.1.2 is alive

Am i doing something wrong ? Please higlight to me thanks

Finally i solved it the problem was i set Connection type to DHCP and Type to bridge . Therefor that is why all the problem caused so what i did was i fire up tftp32 . I made my win xp machine as a dhcp server and voila! Im able access the config page and revert back changes . Pheww So digi can you kindly advise anything else i need to revert ? Thanks for the help man

I would just give the Fon a static IP and write it on it so that in a month when you come to play you'll not have to dig it up again. I set any that I'm going to leave to 192.168.1.1 but luckily I have a good setup here with proper DHCP server handling the whole network so even if I leave it on DHCP it still gets an address then the nmap trick works.
