Idirect 3100 NB Not booting properly

Hi all.

I have an iDirect 3100 NB and had done something wrong during the updating of cumulative_update-7_1_1.pkg and remote-7_1_1.pkg.

At the moment I can not access it in any other way than console. Root and iDirect as username and password.
When I want to access it via lan cable it does not allow me to.
I can ping it with Ip address but not logging in with either iSite nor WScp.

Is there a way to bring the router back to original factory settings?
Is there any other way I can solve this problem?

I have managed to load the option file and pointed it to the the satellite C-band and status is as follows.
Power green
Status off
Net Flashing Orange
Tx off
Rx green

Hope to hear from someone soon.

When you loaded the cumulative package update it should have went like this -

On console (so it is implied that you have a connection to your iDirect modem and you KNOW the root password):

1.  type: service sshd start (this starts secure shell daemon)
2. Using WinSCP copy the cumulative update file to the /tmp directory on your modem
3.  Once you have confirmed that the file is in /tmp type the following:
4. mount -t tmpfs -oremount, size=16M /tmp
5. cd /tmp
6. package -mx -a cumulative_update-7_1_1.pkg
7. rm -f cumulative_update-7_1_1.pkg
8. chmod 744 package_install.sh
9. ./package_install.sh

Do the above then load the image.  Do not tell the modem to reset after image is loaded. Load your options file with iSite, then reboot it.  It should come back up as a usable 7.1.1 modem.
