no.. i'm not screaming, i just not change the option since i type my password here. mb

opkg does not include in the builds because there doesn't have enough space in 4/32 targets.


@humanOS please include TP-Link MR-3420 v2. Thank you.

Thank you very much @humanOS for sharing your work. I really appreciate that. I really hope you can keep doing something for this awesome but very forgotten device (WR940Nv6).

I wish you could compile some newer version, like 19

Thank you very much for your answer, and for sharing your work with us.
I'm going to try it on my WR940N v6 tomorrow. I really hope everything works flawlessly. (I'm so scared about it because I read that it's a bit complicated to go back to stock firmware, and I'm a newby on this and it's my only router, I don't have any chance to buy another :confounded:)

Btw @humanOS, I guess it's possible to create a "guest network" (wifi) in this compilation, I'm right?

Yeah. possible. You can create maximum 4 wireless AP. Also You can use mac address based speed control. it is quite simple, if u need i can share a simple custom firewall for mac base speed control

That's awesome. I just need SQM for having a good shape in my broadband (no bufferbloat) and limit the shared broadband speed

Flashed and bricked my WR940N v6... Now I don't know that to do! @humanOS

Recovered my router via TFTP with stock firmware.

There is no way to flash OpenWrt on my router. It gets inmediatly bricked. I don't know what to do.
Via WEB it says "error: incorrect region" or something, but when I use (EU) it proceed, finishes with no errors, restart router and BRICKED!

Flashed via TFTP all 3 versions "squashfs" and each one bricks my WR940N v6. I don't understand what's going on...

do you check region variant of your router? There also has a brazilian variant.
