I am having trouble getting R1 working right now. I have sold a few of these, but no one asked me about anything not working. However, I can’t get it working!

I tried OpenWRT 3.0 and 4.0 Images. I know one of my friends got it working, but I can’t. I just don’t want to ask him though.

While booting, I get many messages about USB failing…

and then it gets stuck. However, I have a green light!!! Crazy!!! R1 as router? not working of course. It does not give local IP’s… Driving me nuts right now…
