I compiled my own kernel, version 220.127.116.11 using kamikaze (it builds the
tools needed to compile for mips). I also did the debootstrap (second
stage directly on the router, with openwrt). Since I forgot a few things
I had to do the process quite a few times. The only problem which I
couldn't resolve was that I forgot about the need for a rootdelay
parameter (which the kernel on site has set), so I joined this mailing list.
The kernel on site booted without problems, but I wanted wireless (not
supported on 2.6 with broadcom wireless).

No, it's supposed to blink slowly. And it does if I keep the reset
button pressed while switching it off and on. But sometimes, even though
it blinks like its supposed to, I still can't upload (doesn't even
reply to ping).
Also that's the only time I get something

I really don't know this. For me, if I could ping it, then I could
upload an image.

Here, I just put them in:
The archive contains my system (hope I didn't forget anything around
there). It probably doesn't contain my last modifications so some
scripts from /etc/network/scripts which I put don't work. The system is
a bit big because debian has lots and lots of stuff in /usr/share/doc
and /usr/share/locale (which you can safely delete, though you should
also modify the files in /var/lig/dpkg/info so dpkg doesn't complain).
You should make sure the upload process goes well, though. Test with an
image known to work, like openwrt first until you sort your uploading
