I have a TP-Link Archer C7 that had DDWRT installed. I used the TFTP recovery process to get the latest OEM firmware installed. Now I'm wanting to install OpenWrt, but I have not had any luck.
- I have tried the GUI, but it complains about wrong image format.
I changed the file named to firmware.bin
- Have tried the TFTP recovery and still have the OEM firmware.
Disabled my Windows FW, all 3 parts.
I changed the file name to ArcherC7v5_tp_recovery.bin
Here is the log file from the TFTP server:
Connection received from 192.168.0.86 on port 2772 [05/05 17:52:28.451]

I have followed the information from this post, which still resulted in have no OpenWrt installed, (I've bricked my Archer C7 V5).
Please let me know how to fix this problem.
