I'm in a bit of a pickle here.
I flashed with CoovaAP earlier today - it was working great.
Then, in an effort to get traffic shaping to work (see this thread: http://coova.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=182), I uninstalled and reinstalled a few software modules, includes ipstatus, ip6status, and a few others.
Now, I cannot access the hotspot settings whatsoever - I get a long XML readout that starts with "No space left on device." DHCP is apparently not functioning, and the router is basically useless. I cannot install or uninstall any of the software modules.
The only thing I can do is login to the firmware and look around. Any effort to change any setting gives me "No space left on device."
I thought I could get out of this by going to firmware defaults, with the usual method. This, however, merely changed all of the settings to defaults but left me out of space - in other words, things like the SSID and access lists were defaulted, but the software modules and space remain in quagmire status.
So, as a next step I tried reflashing with the coova bin file I downloaded. No dice. Then I tried reflashing with the linksys default - it won't even do that. Nothing will work.
I cannot SSH or telnet into the router.
Is there a way out of this mess? How did all the space on the router fill and why doesn't it empty when I default the settings?
I am connected to the internet now directly to the cable modem, but I'm going to do some more investigating.
I'm really scared that I have bricked my router and I cannot afford another one. If anybody can help I would really appreciate it - I'll check back on this forum at some point but it would be even more helpful if you could call me at 845.380.8139.
Thanks - hopefully I'll figure my own way out of this mess.
