I hope this is a simple question for those that have done it. From reading the Factory install guide I was sure that it is the kernel image named below that I'm suppose to use.
However someone reported on
r/openwrt that this exact file bricked their X5000R and it's the sysupgrade download that should be used so now I'm confused. Furthermore there are two sysupgrade.bin with different checksums from the following two links. Which exact download am I suppose to use with the factory firmware?
Thank you in advance from an OpenWrt newbie.
İ think you need sysupgrade. Because in x5000r device page only available sysupgrade. And kernel file is testing purposes. İf you will install kernel file after reboot it will get erased. Because its for one time use.
Upload the sysupgrade firmware to the firmware upgrade page in vendor fw.
Any idea which sys upgrade download I should be using (URL 1 or 2?). Although they are both 6 MB and named similar they have different checksum.
Thank you all for the pointers. The flashing went well. To get both 2.4G and 5G radio working I did have to ssh in and edit /etc/config/wireless by follow this post
Hi! So I recently purchased this device and installed 21.02 stable on it.
Photos of the issue
here due to new user restriction.
After performing basic configuration I entered the Network - Wireless menu to configure my access points. The following was observed:
With the default configuration, two radios are detected (radio0: MT7915E nac, radio1: Generic bgn).
Activated both APs with their default settings (OpenWrt SSID, no password...) and I could connect my devices.
Hopefully this will help other Totolink X5000R users out if they run into the same problem.
Just to summarize. I used the 21.02.0 squashes sysupgrade from the firmware selector page here
