connection to FritzBox: LAN, serial (optional)

Use FTP if Web Interface is not available or image is not accepted. Flashing a non fitting image causes Box not to boot showing “Invalid PC Value. <ERROR: FIRMWARE_CHECK_SUM>” seen at serial console.

Flashing Bootloader not tested & recommended (watch out for mtd2).

  • set your IP to: 192.168.178.x, Sub: 255.255.255.0, Gateway: 192.168.178.1
  • start serial console (optional), power on FritzBox → interrupt boot immediately pressing a key in serial console, then start FTP connection
  • OR power on FritzBox → immediately start FTP connection (did not work - try again connecting a bit later), first 5seconds it accepts FTP connections → ping 192.168.178.1 for 5sec can help
ftp 192.168.178.1
