Hi, I just won a box of old network in an Auction. The only one so far that is working is a TP-LINK TD-W8980 v.10 that is a Modem+Router.
I'd like to install OpenWrt on it. It has
Firmware version: 0.6.0 1.5 v000e.0 Build 140408 Rel.49241n
Hardware version: TD-W8980 v1 00000000
I read here about the lower than v12... so I should be OK to use the current TP-web-interface to install. Yes/No??
IF I install 19.0.7 on it and something is not working, can I roll it back to the factory image?
I checked the TP-Link site and the latest is 150514 so if I had to roll back, I'd like to roll back to a less-than 12... image to leave an easy option open to use OpenWrt some time in the future. Where might I get one lower than 12...?
I will make a backup of this 6... image before the install. IF I have to roll back, can I use the OpenWrt web-interface to do so with the backup? The last time I used OpenWrt, about 5-years back, I was not able to roll back with whatever router and version it was and I bricked it trying to use the Serial approach. Once bitten, twice shy.
