    I've managed to load the latest firmware from Linksys, DDWRTv23 -mini, then finally -std over a wireless link (Yeah I know it was risky but it worked). The reason I had to do it was the LAN ports do not LINK, no lights at all. The internet port is the same.

    Here's dmesg from the router


    Also attempting to SSH into the router doesn't work despite having the correct password.

    Looks ok!

    Everything looks ok, to what are you connecting? (cross-cable?)

    Did you do a factory reset?

    ,"Probing device eth0: No Robo switch in managed mode found"
    ,"Probing device eth1: [switch-robo.c:101] SIOCGETCPHYRD failed!"
    ,"[switch-robo.c:101] SIOCGETCPHYRD failed!"

    The above message means the robo-ethernet switch hasn't started! (broken or wrong nvram settings?)

    Can you check the mac adress? Can you find the LAN mac adress in the firmware admin pages?

    I've tried both a straight through and crossover cable. A factory reset and several attempts with reset button (only during the time the Linksys firmware was installed).

    Would a reset with the current dd-wrt make a differece? I'll try it when I get back home none the less.

    I can see the MAC address in the firmware Admin page. It is the same as the one on the bottom of the unit.

    I also tried a factory reset and there is no change.

    You are having a lan-mac adress, this means the flash went ok!

    If the LAN ports didn't work in the original Linksys firmware too, then the LAN robo-switch is I think broken.
