TP-Link Archer MR600 exploration

Awesome work guys, looking forward to trying it!

Is sending SMS possible with this build? Via AT to the modem maybe?

There are different possibilities to configure the wan interface. With the default config there is a tool (sms-tool) and external luci app but I use ModemManager(mmcli) with a script to forward sms by mail.

Hi @Djfe

I have an Archer MR600(EU) v1. Is there any way I can help with implementing OpenWRT support for it?

I only want to use it in bridge mode. My TV has a crappy wifi interface, so I want to connect it to the MR600 using ethernet, and connect the MR600 to my home wifi network.

I didn't find enough time to look at v1, yet.
Last time I stopped because I'm trying to figure out whether the modem works on stock rom.
Right now the mr600 v1 doesn't detect my nano sim (with adapter). Could be due to the adapter not sure. I want to know whether it works before figuring out implementing OpenWRT support.
Anyone else has problems with the device not detecting your sim card?

For your use case you could use any other router that already has support.
The MR600 v1 is only feasible if I can find a way to install openwrt without serial access.
I don't want people to need to open the case to install openwrt since it damages the case.

I can confirm that the WiFi signal is really bad. Even my roommate (who didn't know that I flashed OpenWRT on the router) noticed it, because now, the signal doesn't reach our kitchen...
Does anyone know of a possible solution? Or how to find out what the issue is?

hey can you help me install the openwrt?? I don't find any tutorial for that. Plzz help me. Thanks.
