I have had a recommendation to buy a modem router to install lede.. and some guys has told me to buy tp-link td-w8970 v1 or v1.2. Then I have bought it on ebay. When it is arrived I have discovered that the oem firmware does not accept (with webgui) lede image because it need only signed firmware. Then I read on the device's page to install the firmware by serial. Then I have bought the solder, the connectors and the usb to ttl interface. When everything is arrived I must learn how to solder because I had never done it. Ok I soldered the connector on the pc I run minicom and I see the boot log... now I discover that the (fucking) uboot prompt don't come up... I mean I press the "t" key early on the boot... then I have tried other key.. I checked the loop test on the ttl usb cable... and many other fucking stuff.. uboot dont want give me the prompt.
Then I will put this "very well" supported modem router on the trash and I will buy an other one.
Please anyone could advice me a modem router with the follogin feature (?):
- have adsl modem
- must support openvpn for just one user.. I have an adsl with 20mbit of bandwidth
- lede must be easy to install
not needed or supported wifi... just it must be work!
