First, I'm sorry for my bad english (i'm french)
Here's my problem : i just bought the Archer C6 Tp Link router (V2).
I want Open WRT on it for experience and DHCP connection (my ISP is Orange Telecom)
I follow this link : https://openwrt.org/toh/hwdata/tp-link/tp-link_archer_c6_v2_eu
I download the openwrt factory firmware et sysupgrade firmware : both of them don't work with web gui. I have error message : "Invalid file type"
So I decide to go with tftp recovery with tftpd64 software for tftp server.
My IP adress is 192.168.0.66 and netmask 255.255.255.0
The BIN file name is "ArcherC6v2_tp_recovery.bin"
I launch tftpd64, i verify directory, i choose correct server interface.
I push the reset button(with a pen), i power on router, i wait 5 secs...and nothing happened. The router boot normally but no tftp....nothing.
I think the problem is i don't know when i have to release the reset button. I search with other routers like C7 or C5 but th boot led sequence is not the same (i think)
On the C6, at Power ON :
- Power LED light up a few seconds and then off
- Power LED lights up again and blink
- Then WiFi LED 2.4 et 5GHZ lights up (Power LED still blinking)
- Finally Lan LED lights up
Notice : whe the router is powering on and the power led is up and after a few second down, the server interface in tftpd64 go to 127.0.0.1 (loopback). I don't know if there is a part of the probleme too.
I know some people here succesfully flash Archer C6 to openwrt.
Please help meeeeee.
Thanks in advance
