I’ve encountered connectivity issues which I managed to resolve with a factory reset. This post is just to record my findings.
I have a Beryl and this morning it was refusing to route both Ethernet and WiFi clients traffic to the internet.
I connected to the control panel and I found a new UI which looked nice.
I noticed the tethering device looked connected but all the VPN configs were gone.
I figured out there must have been a firmware, which I scheduled to run automatically overnight.
In fact the version running was:
Firmware Type: release3
Compile Time: 2023-07-28 18:55:39(UTC+08:00)
I thought something could have been messed up since it was all empty; I loaded and enabled a new config and with VPN on I was able to browse. I tried to toggle the ‘Block Non-VPN Traffic’ on and off under “VPN Global Options”, but the problem persisted.
I was able to ping 188.8.131.52 from the router shell but not from my machines unless I was connected to a VPN.
Eventually I decided to do a factory reset since, fortunately, my settings haven’t diverged much from the defaults and the problem has gone.
Hope this will be helpful for anyone encountering the same issue.
