actiontec gt784 problems

Reported by: actiontecproblems Owned by: developers
Priority: high Milestone:
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


  1. Barrier Breaker 14.07: USB doesn't work. Tried uhci, ohci, ehci; nothing works.

Symptoms: Can't get lsusb to work. "unable to initialize libusb: -99".

Even with all of the scsi & usb storage & block-mount packages loaded, listing /dev shows no /dev/sda, no /dev/sdb, etc.

Without USB, I can't get USB storage to work. Without USB storage, I can't get extroot to work.

I know that the GT784 HW itself works, because with the factory firmware, USB flash drives (FAT, NTFS) work.

  1. The current trunk (3/30/2015) won't boot on the gt784 at all. It crashes back to CFE. I'm worried about this, because it means that bugs have been introduced into the trunk that weren't in 14.07.
  1. Can't find the appropriate Attitude Adjustment firmware to try.

Replying to actiontecproblems:

  1. The current trunk (3/30/2015) won't boot on the gt784 at all.

Are you working with a GT784WN or a GT784WNV?

When I flash trunk to a GT784WNV ...

$ ping

comes back with a reply so I can only assume the device has booted but for some reason

$ telnet

gets no response, hence no way to set passwd, hence no access.

I'm getting "unable to initialize libusb: -99".
And USB functionality isn't working.
