I have been trying to install OpenWRT on Malaysian Unifi Archer C1200 v1 using OpenWRT. It did not work when I use Firmware Upgrade feature of the stock firmware, it gives me "Unable to Upgrade" error. However I managed to upgrade it to EU and US version but even installing from the EU and US version won't work. I also tried to install old LEDE version but nothing seems to work.
I managed to install
1.1.0 Build 20170413 rel.56876 (US) and
1.1.3 Build 20180502 rel.46288_2018-05-02_13.47.59 (EU).
The one still fails is
Have you tried this?
Note: The Archer C7 V2.0's web interface does not accept the image .bin file unless you rename it to something with less dots; like openwrt.bin
I know it is for v2, but maybe it started affecting v1 too.
Yes I have shortened the firmware name but the same error. I even tried using the V2 firmware with name shortened also the same error
@tmomas yes I believe that is the device. It matches the specs and has 3 external antennas.
Model Archer C1200
Like I mentioned above, I tried both firmwares for V1 and V2 but none worked so far. I do not know how else to do it.
Your suggestion is appreciated. Thanks.
This does not fit.
Archer C1200 v1 = Broadcom = unsupported
Archer C5 v1 = Qualcomm Atheros = supported
Please mind that Archer C1200 != C5 AC1200, those are completely different devices.
Based on further research, I think you are right. Is there any effort currently to support this model?
@zorrox, welcome to the community!
Not likely unless you begin yourself. This link will provide you more information: https://openwrt.org/meta/infobox/broadcom_wifi
