hi Rafał,

first question, do i absolutely need a serial console to get an interface
with CFE? i tried telnetenable from NetGearTelnetEnable and it did work so
far as establishing connection with no prompt. so i couldn't run any
command (nvram show) at that point. then made a cardinal mistake of
upgrading the firmware and now it refuses to allow telnet connection. i
might be able to roll back the firmware.

the default firmware does provide upgrading from it's GUI interface and i'm
hoping to try the img you suggested in the thread to see if i can get a
partially working openwrt (mainly telnet/ssh/shell prompt) and take it from

this all has to wait for a while though. i can get back to this towards the
end of December when i have more time. in the mean time please keep your
ideas/suggestions coming. thanks for the help.
