Help with installing OpenWrt on tp link TP-Link TL-MR6400 v4


I'm new to this and I wanted to install openwrt on my TP-Link TL-MR6400 v4 EU version so I followed these steps :

  1. serve tftp-recovery image as tp_recovery.bin on

  2. connect to any ethernet port

  3. power on the device while holding the reset button

  4. wait at least 8 seconds before releasing reset button

as I understand step 1 is to put my local windows ip address to which I did
then connect the router to my pc using ethernet and power it on while pressing reset for 10 sec and the Tftpd64 program showed the file name with percent 100% I waited for 5 min the reboot the netwrok name change to openwrt but nothing is working no internet or not working did something went wrong ?

please help me with this I only bought the router to run openwrt on it, it's still brand new

if it picked up the image, then it should be OK, but the reflash might take longer than 5 mins.

try running the TFTP recovery again, and give it more time.
