Problems resetting LAN Turtle

Recommended Posts

I am following these steps from the wiki:

Factory Reset / "Unbricking"

 

In the extreme case that a LAN Turtle has become permenantly inaccessible or inoperative, there is a quick method for recovery using a special web interface.

 

  1. Download the latest factory image from https://downloads.lanturtle.com/turtle-2-factory.bin
  2. Carefully open the LAN Turtle case by removing the two screws underneath the sticker on the bottom
  3. While holding the button on the bottom of the LAN Turtle, plug the device into a computer
  4. After 3 seconds let go of the button and wait an additional 30 seconds to receive an IP address from the LAN Turtle
  5. If you do not receive an IP address in the 192.168.x range from the LAN Turtle within a minute, statically assign the LAN Turtle's interface to 192.168.1.2 (netmask 255.255.255.0)
  6. Browse to the LAN Turtle firmware recovery web interface at http://192.168.1.1
  7. Follow the on screen prompts to upload and flash the factory image downloaded in step 1
  8. When the flash is complete the LAN Turtle will reboot and will be accessible again from 172.16.84.1 with the default username root and password sh3llz

I do not get an IP in the 192.168.x.x range any time I hold down the button.  When I hold down the button on my Kali linux box it comes up as 172.16.84.245 with a gateway of 172.16.84.1.

If I manually set the adapter IP in Kali to 192.168.1.2 I am not able to get to a website using my web browser.  I have tried this on a Linux Mint laptop, Kali linux laptop and Mac computer with all the same results.

I have tried holding the button for 1 second and for 30 seconds and places in between with the same results.

Do you think my LAN Turtle is defective?

I was able to get my LAN Turtle working so I want to share what I did.

I had to manually set the IP address as explained in the instructions to 192.168.1.2 for my wired connection.  I set a gateway of 192.168.1.1.

I then added a route for the network 192.168.1.0/24 with a gateway of 192.168.1.2.  Once the route was added I was able to go to a browser and navigate to 192.168.1.1.  The upload and restore of the firmware went perfect.

BOOM!  I am back in the game!

Could you by chance outline the exact steps you took?

I am having trouble with mine as well, however it seems as though it isn't working. I can't connect to it at all, even after adding a route. Unless I'm adding it incorrectly?

 

Would it be possible for you to take pictures of the steps you took as well, so that I will be sure to get it correct?

I am using Linux Mint

I edited the properties of my wired connection which was the LAN Turtle, in my case it was Wired Connection 2

Under that I have an IPV4 tab and at the bottom is a Routes button.

I went into Routes and added a route for the network 192.168.1.0, subnet mask 255.255.255.0 with a gateway of 192.168.1.2 (which is the ip I statically assigned to that Wired Connection 2)

That is all.

Old thread but dusted off my turtle the other day and encountered the same issues. What I found was that I had to plug the device in first so it is detected then set the static IP as per @CrashOveride first. Next unplug the turtle, hold the reset button for 5 seconds while plugging back in and the static IP configured is assigned to the turtle and you can then update the firmware, remove the static settings and reconnect.

Only remaining bit to figure out for me is getting internet to the management interface so i can update etc. Currently I can browse internet via the turtle lan cable but I cant get the turtle itself to use this connection. any tips, or screenshots of routing config appreciated.
