U-boot not working after flashing openwrt clean firmware

edit: was able to resolve the issue by manually setting my ip address, netmask, & gateway. Does anyone know why the clean firmware on gl-inet’s website doesn’t work though? I’ve tried install the most recent version of openwrt (dd trunk). However I’ve always had issues getting luci to work properly…

As you modified your post, I am not sure what is the problem. The clean firmware should work! It will not affect uboot.
