  • Well could you describe with a few more words than "i get stuck at the very start when is asks about my network cards" what your problem is?

    With what you provided so far nobody can help you.

    sorry mate
    well at the very start it asks me about what Ethernet cards i have vr0 to vr3 but i type the names in and i just get the same question come up, even then i press A for auto jsut repeats all the time

    Thanks



  • hmmm.

    Can you describe the exact steps you took?

    What i did when i set it up:
    1: You get asked if you want VLANs –> no
    2: You get a list of possible interfaces. (in your case this seems to be vr0 to vr3)
    3: assign WAN --> type the EXACT name of the interface. (i suppose you want vr0 here)
    4: assign the LAN --> (vr1?)
    5: You get asked if you want additional interfaces. Just press enter here. You can assign the additional interfaces later if you need them.

    After that you should be able to access the webGUI.

    What you describe (you get asked again what you want) usually happens if you type a wrong name for an interface. Double check that you enter the EXACT name.



  • If you are trying to use the autodetect function you first need to unplug all cables from the nics and then plug each cable back in one at the time when prompted.
