OpenWrt doesn't know LEDs or buttons for this device yet, so it won't
change your LEDs.

Except for ethernet LEDs which are controlled by the hardware.

Oh, OK, so this sounds like a problem :( It seems OpenWrt didn't boot
correctly for some reason.

Could you get a serial console (the most comfortable is probably some
USB TTL one), open the box and connect serial console to the board?
With serial console you could see all OpenWrt messages and we could
see what went wrong.
