Is there a way to test the GPIO pins in DD-WRT?

    Hi All,

    First of all, I think the DD-WRT is GREAT!! unfortunately I am not :bash:
    I decided to add some more space in my router, and give the SD-card install a try...
    I took great precaution with soldering the wires of the card holder, anti static band etc. Checked the connections several times, and measured for shortcuts. It was all connected as it should be...
    Strange enough the router started normally with and without SDcard, I tested everything and it was all funtional, except for the power LED, it just keeps flashing rapidly?? Like a bad firmware flash. (I am not 100% sure if it was blinking before... :( )
    I flashed several times with internation, US linksys firmware, dd-wrt v22 and 23beta, but all went fine only it keeps on blinking :evil:
    The other little issue is that the SDcard is not working althoug I did set it in the GUI? Unfortunately I am a bit of a newbie. I did telnet into the router and issued a mount command, but did not see any new mount in there

    # mount
    /dev/root on / type squashfs (ro)
    none on /dev type devfs (rw)
    proc on /proc type proc (rw)
    ramfs on /tmp type ramfs (r

    I also used WINSCP, but was not able to find anything except a mmc folder with no space available.. :cry:

    I used a Kingston 256mb SD card SD256K00H0533

    I was thinking of installing openwrt with the GPIO test, but it frigtened me a bit, don't really want to brick my precious router...
    Is there a way to test the GPIO pins in the dd-wrt firmare?

    Is the fact that I am a newbie causing the issue, or is there actually something wrong here??

    I would really appreciate some help if anyone has a idea what could have gone wrong...or how to get rid of my irritating blinking LED... :)
