I have just bought 11 WPJ344 boards and have flashed two of them with OpenWRT CC then OpenWRT DD, both from downloads.openwrt.com and then the latest LEDE nightly. All of these images have some sort of Ethernet problem or the boards themselves have an Ethernet problem.
Both of these boards now have completely unresponsive ethernet ports, even in U-Boot. Tx and Rx bytes show 0 bytes.
I can't ping the boards, the boards can't ping anything and i can't GET or PUT a TFTP file to reflash them to something else.
I flashed the boards straight out of the box so i can't confirm that the issue is present with CompexWRT, however, I have left the 3rd board powered on overnight and will check if it is dead when i get to work in the morning.
On both boards the issue occurred after power was disconnected completely, up to that point the boards could ping and be pinged, as you would expect.
is it normal that a Compex board can't be pinged at 192.168.1.1 when in the bootloader?
I'm stuck on this one, there seems to be plenty of posts with WPJ344 having Ethernet issues but they all appeared to be solved.
I have lots of experience with 802.11/Linux/OpenWRT/LEDE and Compex, I've never seen this problem. If it helps i do this stuff for a day job and I have lots of resources to throw at this problem if someone can tell me what i can do.
