I'm pretty new to this firmware and am trying it out on an WRT54GL. The firmware prior to coovap installed on the device was dd-wrt. After flashing it with the coovap firmware I somehow cant seem to change my ESSID. Although the change seems to be happening in the web interface, it still shows up as "dd-wrt". I tried "mtd -r erase nvram" to erase all old settings. But once it reboots I still can login with the previous root password (although the network settings and other settings have changed) and most importantly as per the documentation I can't seem to get the ESSID "Coova". What could be wrong? Am I using the wrong command to reset it to factory settings?
Another thing I noticed is that the router does not do a rest if I keep the reset button pressed. Is this normal behaviour?
Also how do I change the default timezone?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
