thank you again for the help! I just need your help one more time...
I can't seem to connect my TR703N to my apache on my PC. when I telnet it keeps saying that i could not connect to my PC's ip address.
My current connection to the router is through an ethernet cable that is plugged in to my PC. I have turned DHCP off and set my PC's ipaddress (IPV4) as 192.168.1.2. This is the only way that I can telnet into the router.
Is this connection right? or do I need to put both my PC and TR703N on another router and LAN them and then disable DHCP and set individual IP's for my PC and TR703N? If this is correct how would I go about doing that? Furthermore do i telnet into the IP i have set for my TR703N? I've done a lot of trial and error and the only telnet IP that works for my router is 192.168.1.1
One more thing that I have noticed, I've seen your WR841N router on the network infrastructure while I was in window explorer. Could it be that the WR703N's openwrt firmware was set to your router's setting so that http://nas/ is no accessible through using other routers?(I used a D-Link).
Thanks again for the help! Sorry that I have tons of questions and hopefully didn't bother you too much!
The fist connection setup you mentioned is correct. You need to connect your pc with static ip address like 192.168.1.2 straight with a cable to WR703N's etherenet port.
When WR703N is in failsafe mode (fast flashing led light) it will assign itself an ip of 192.168.1.1 and you can telnet that ip address from your pc.
As James pointed out please disable your firewall if possible just in case it blocks the apache's port 80. Please also make sure that apache is working on your pc by opening http://192.168.1.2/ from your pc and you should see a "It works" page.
After you logged into (via telnet) WR703N. Run the following commands one by one:
Assume you have set your pc's ip address 192.168.1.2 and replace FIRMWARENAME by what ever the filename you copied to your apache's folder.
If the wget reports no error you can then start flashing the firmware as mentioned in my previous post.
The firmware I created does not have any ability to broadcast its name/services over network. Therefore the WR841N you saw on your pc has nothing to do with it. If for some reason that WR703N cannot be accessed from http://nas/ (blame your router for that) then you will need to use ip address to access it, which usually can be found on the "dhcp client list" (refer to your router's documents) and remember to cross check the mac address printed on the back of the WR703N.
