Telnet enable Wn2000RPT

Hi everyone,


I have looked around to find an answer to my issue, but to no avail.

I am trying to convert a WN2000RPT (no version written on the back, so assum V1) to openwrt or DD-WRT. However, my understanding is that the first stage is to "telneenable" the extender. I have tryied and followed all the telnet enable methodes and versions that I could find, wether the python version, C version or windows version, as well as using the three different official firmwares, but to no avail. I keep getting "connection refused" or with windows test, "send failed 10057". An nmap of the extern shows only 2 ports opened (80, 3333).

Has anyone managed to access this extender via telnet or convert it to DD-WRT or openwrt?

What do I do wrong?

I have been on this for a few days now, so any help will be welcome.

Maybe shifting to another

Maybe shifting to another version of firmware will do the trick. I rooted my WNR2000v4 via downgrading its firmware.


Good Luck!
