LEDE for TP-LINK WR845N (US) V3

Just bought one of these. The hardware is the following:

CPU1: Mediatek MT7628NN (575MHz)
FLA1: 8 MiB (GigaDevice GD25Q64CSIG)
RAM1: 64 MiB (ESMT M14D5121632A-2.5B)

Have anyone tried to flash LEDE on this model? Seems compatible and i'm going to give it a try. Just want to know if anyone has some on going work...

It should not be hard.
From what I can see it looks similar to WR840N v4 or WR841N v13

If you need help feel free to contact me

Hi @guisenges,
Can You test images for WR845N-V3?

Hi @Heinz,

Thank you! Works like a charm! I've tried using the known tftp method since latest tp-link models have problems flashing the firmware through web interface. I'm going to try the web interface tomorrow. LEDs and ethernwt seems ok. I dont see any error messages looking at logread. Wifi driver is very unstable like other models using MT7628.

Thanks for test.
Can You check MAC address on WAN, LAN and WLAN interface if it is the same like on sticker or in oem web interface.

LAN and WLAN interface have the same MAC address of my sticker. WAN is one digit after.

Did You compare these MAC addresses with MAC addresses in OEM firmware?

Hi @Heinz, thanks for the uploaded image and the good job on the driver.
I flashed it on TL-WR845N v3, configured as a repeater, running now for 4 days, with no problem at all.
Everything working fine and very stable.

Mac Address on the sticker is C0:25:E9:47:28:7C

ifconfig shows the same, except for eth0.2 as folows:

  br-lan    Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr C0:25:E9:47:28:7C
  eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr C0:25:E9:47:28:7C
  eth0.1    Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr C0:25:E9:47:28:7C
  eth0.2    Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr C0:25:E9:47:28:**7D**
  wlan0   Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr C0:25:E9:47:28:7C
  wlan0-1   Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr C0:25:E9:47:28:7C

I did not had time to compare them in OEM firmware.

iwinfo show missing information for Noise, it´s always zero. tx-power is also missing.
