sorry for the html email :)
In the end I managed to restore it using redboot. The instructions were
perfect. I read somewhere in the blog that the default failsafe image
was broken, so it would explain why it refused any kind of firmware I
tried to upload. I flashed Tantor, then from the web interface I jumped
straight to 188.8.131.52 beta2.
The latest firmware works very well when used as a 3G router, however
the supported internet key list is quite limited.
What information do you need to add a new internet key? USB device info?
Chipset used inside?
It would be great if something like they did on TP-Link 3G router could
be implemented: the ability to upload new "profiles" to extend internet
keys recognition without waiting for a new firmware release.
Keep up the good work,
