Anyone got any suggestions what to do here? Seems the Lede packages are gone:

The 2.xx firmwares are no longer supported, you should updated to the latest firmware from here:

Thanks for the update Johnex! Kind of sucks for me though because I have many of these all over the country with only access via SSH. I use them as a way to control other hardware within firewalled networks by using reverse SSH tunnels.

You can remote upgrade all the routers via SSH using the API, or you can port forward via SSH to access the UI that way as well. Here is the API:



Ya, the proxy via port forwarding is probably the easy route but the API may allow me to script it. The routers all call home via HTTPS and can then get some commands or scripting changes back.

My recommendation is you make a custom image, that already contains all the ā€œcallbackā€ home settings you might need. You can then remote update using that.

You can make custom images with the imagebuilder:

Hope this can help you.
