R8000 kong dd wrt not working

Hi,
Brand new to this stuff. Just followed a tutorial and installed the latest chk file, the router revooted, but the dd wrt page did not come up in my browser. I then factory reset it by holding it for 30seconds and then turned it off and on again.
When plugged in the router doesnt appear at all. I tried arp -a and nothing was found . I tried ipconfig and no dhcp was working at all (address was random and no default gateway).
Only thing that seems to be working is the wifi ssid name is dd-wrt. But i dont know the wifi password.
Any help would be appreciate.

Device is an x6 R8000

Instead of Kong builds it's better to use beta DD-WRT firmwares worked fine for me.

dd-wrt wifi network password

dd-wrt wifi network password is the one printed on the bottom of the router.

For me, to fix ethernet port issue I used a build from ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/betas/2018/

I don't think many of you are

I don't think many of you are waiting for the proess' to complete. I've set up 15 R700/R8000 routers for the offices and all work perfectly. The only way I could get the posted issue is if I jumped ahead instead of being patient. Currently at this site I am running the R8000 and I only use Kong version software for any of these.

The password is the one at

The password is the one at the bottom of the router, the best firmware to use in any broadcom device is Kong’s, the wan problem prolly has to do with lan mismatch if your modem is giving 192.168.1.1 change it to 192.168.2.1, 192.168.0.1 or 10.0.0.1.

Not an expert, but I always get the job done and look good doing it.

Btw the 30/30/30 doesn’t work

Btw the 30/30/30 doesn’t work on the R8000 if you want a clean nvram, run command: “erase nvram” on the administration tab.
