I have the TP-Link Archer C58HP router ( https://www.tp-link.com/ae/support/download/archer-c58hp/ ) V1.0 (I don't think it has any other version). I was wondering if there is plan for adding support of this router in near future. The hardware details of this router are available at http://en.techinfodepot.shoutwiki.com/wiki/TP-LINK_Archer_C58HP_v1.x. These seem almost same as Archer C58 V1.x (http://en.techinfodepot.shoutwiki.com/wiki/TP-LINK_Archer_C58_v1.x). There is an OpenWRT version available for C58 (https://openwrt.org/toh/hwdata/tp-link/tp-link_archer_c58_v1) but I am not sure if it is safe to use the C58 firmware on C58HP.
Any help will be much appreciated.
try it only if you have opened the device and gained console access (most probably voiding your warranty)
Tried the C58 TFTP recovery sequence on C58HP (i.e. press and hold Reset and power on). However, C58HP does not ask TFTP server for the recovery image. I do not have C58 but I have WR841N which asks for recovery image when I use the same sequence. Probably need to look for serial console access to get some insights.
Hi Guys.. I am trying to add TP-Link Archer C58HP using [OpenWrt Wiki] Adding a new device. This router has same hardware as TP-Link Archer C58 so I have added reference for C58HP in all places where TP-Link Archer C58 is referenced (based on git.openwrt.org Git - openwrt/openwrt.git/search). I have also added .dts for C58HP. TP-Link Archer C58HP shows in make menuconfig and I am able to run make. However, I only get the openwrt-ath79-generic-tplink_archer-c58hp-v1-initramfs-kernel.bin image on completion of make. There is no openwrt-ath79-generic-tplink_archer-c58hp-v1-squashfs-factory.bin and openwrt-ath79-generic-tplink_archer-c58-v1-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin. If I change to TP-Link Archer C58 in make menuconfig, I get 3 images for that router. I do not have lot of experience in this area so I wonder if someone can help me understand what am I doing wrong. Thanks in advance.
So after some digging, I found that I missed the
tplink-safeloader.c file. So I added Archer C58HP section in that file. Also found that the partitions defined in
qca9561_tplink_archer-c58hp-v1.dts were a copy of Archer C58 partitions. I have not been able to figure out how to modify the partitions to match Archer C58HP. I have following information about Archer C58HP partitions. I wonder if someone can guide me how to fit these in partitions section of
