@iamsammajor Just grab a new flash drive for your Edgerouter Lite and flash it. Really simple to repair, you don't at all need to replace the router as the Edgerouter Lite is a very capable device.
Before anything - backup the configuration from your Edgerouter.
1) Grab Etcher - https://etcher.io
2) Grab the following firmware bundle - https://files.murfy.nz/ER-e100.v220.127.116.1166937.img.tar.gz
3) Untar - 7zip can do this until you get a .img file.
4) Insert your USB stick in your computer, load this file into Etcher and "etch" it to the USB drive.
5) Pop the flash drive in the router - you're done. It is a brand new router from this point. Restore your configuration and it'll route packets as per normal.
Flash drive I use for Edgerouters as it fits without any modification - very overkill size wise (considering you only need 2gb), but works well: https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/MEMSAM61132/Samsung-32GB-Metallic-Bar-USB-31-DriveChampagne-Si - you can extend the ext3 partition on the flash drive using a tool like gparted on Linux to fill up the flash drive if you like, however not really required.
I've just made that flash drive image to repair a flash drive in an Edgerouter tonight. It works, and I've done a number of these in the past which are still working to this day.
Hi, I tried last night with the usb you recommended. it works like a charm and a lot easier than mine. I was getting 940/300 at 7pm, and 500/100 at 9pm.
just out of curiosity, how long ago that you use the samsung usb? is it still going?
