I was using TP Link Archer C7 v5 with OpenWRT ver 19.
Then I updated some packages via LUCI http. Since then the TP Link Archer C7 V5 (EU) won't boot.
When I power it on all lights are lit for a brief of a second, then all lights but power turn off.
I have tried tftp, but didn't have success.
The TFTP sends the file to the TP LINK ARCHER C7 V5 (EU), then for a while
all lights flash, power button blinks once and power light remains lit. Seems that router doesn't initiate erase and flash the file I send but discards it.
I have tried almost every possible BIN file there is, but couldn't put a life in a router.
Have tried TP-LINK and OPENWRT bin files (TP-LINK stock, Openwrt snapshot, Openwrt upgrade, different versions of Openwrt (18,19,21)).
I have read in forms, that ARCHER C7 V2 checks for HW_ID or Serial_ID and refuses to load if HW_ID isn't matching. I didn't find this numbers in Archer C7 V5. Could this be the same case?
If anyone has been in the same situation and got out of it successfully please advise.
