      Sky Fibre with Linksys WRT610N - Cant get it working

      I have my Linksys E4200 running DDWRT working fine with sky fibre, using the startup command detailed on this forum. A friend of mine on another forum wanted to do the same on his Linksys WRT610N, I ran him through the process, but it isnt working. So far we have established:

      All router settings are correct
      His password and username is correct
      his startup script is correct

      So far all we have is a router running DDWRT and nothing else

      Running the udhcpc script from the command shell freezes the router requiring a reboot, but it seems to be doing something, running ps gives the following output

      PID USER VSZ STAT COMMAND
      1 root 1688 S /sbin/init noinitrd

      662 root 1448 R sh -c alias ping='ping -c 3'; eval "ps" > /tmp/ping.
      663 root 1448 R ps
      As you can see the line I have highlighted shows that the vendor description is changing successfully, so does that mean the router is just failing to start the udhcpc service?

      If so, any ideas?

      Should add, the startup script is as follows

      killall udhcpc

      /usr/sbin/udhcpc -i vlan2 -V "6.14.1a4N_UNI|PCBAFAST2504Nv1.0" -c "xxxxxxxxxxx@skydsl|xxxxxxxxxxxxxx" -p /var/run/udhcpc.pid -s /tmp/udhcpc &
      (user and password obscured for obvious reasons)

      check what the port the WAN Port Assignment is being used by the linksys. if it is anything other than vlan2 then you will need to reflect this in the command line.

      Yeah got him to double check that, its using VLAN2, and its working apart from that, as he has used it on a neighbours VM connection, its just the udhcpc service that doesnt seem to be loading properly

      Is there anyone else using (or trying to use) a WRT610N out there?
