I have an Asus WL-300g AP, currently running DD-WRT with ancient 2.4 kernel 
and I'm trying to upgrade it to OpenWrt using TFTP method.

openwrt-15.05.1-brcm47xx-legacy-asus-wl-300g-squashfs.trx does not boot at all 
after flashing (remains in boot loader after reboot/power-up - blinking PWR 
LED) - maybe because it's too large?

openwrt-brcm47xx-legacy-asus-wl-300g-squashfs.trx (trunk) seems to boot - PWD 
LED blinks quickly, then slower and stays on. If I ping 
continuously, I even get some replies during boot (during the quick-blink 
phase). But then the ethernet link goes down (and LINK LED goess off) and I 
can't access the router anymore.

openwrt-brcm-2.4-squashfs.trx (10.03.1) - seems to boot, ethernet link is up 
(and LINK LED on) but can't access the router.

Unfortunately, there's no serial console on this router. Is there any other 
possible way to debug? Maybe build an image with wifi enabled?
