Lets preface this all with me clarifying I know nothing about networking and am fumbling my way through this.
I recently bought a 2nd hand TP Link WDR4300 with the intention of flashing openwrt onto it - as I am looking to use the WISP function. It turns out that OpenWRT is already installed. Unfortunately, I was not provided a password to gain access to the LuCi GUI and have been attempting to work out how to restore to the openwrt firmware to default state in order to remove the password.
I have detailed the steps I have completed so far and the the assoicated documentation I have refered to.
I have connected to the LuCi via webrowser using 192.168.1.1.
The following information is provided:
Top Banner: TRC46E1F08DB7A (My understanding is that this should typically say OpenWRT ... )
Bottom of Page: Powered by LuCi Master (git-16.034.34990-8ae57f6)/OpenWRT Designated Driver r48626
have had a read on how to reset the router to stock openwrt firmware here.
I have also read how to put the router in fail safe mode here, using the System LED function.
I believe I have succeeded getting into fail safe as the light goes hyper fast.
Using cmder/PuTTY, i have tried to SSH into the router but am always asked to enter a password (which I obviously dont have). This is something that I have been unable to bypass and am currently stuck on.
If anyone could assist, that would be much appreciated.
