Re: TP-Link TL-WR841N v8.0

is there news for tl-wr841n v8.2?

Re: TP-Link TL-WR841N v8.0

TP-Link version name scheme is v Hardware . Software  - so any v8.x should work.

Sometimes latest trunk versions did not work - maybe it 's the same problem with AA before it is stable. Ours are running with svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/trunk Revision: 33624 -  for first install, use openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-wr841n-v8-squashfs-factory.bin

Trunk versions come without luci. For v8 eth0 and eth1 might be mixed up (wan <-> lan), you can correct this easily using uci.

This is for v8.x/intl.

Re: TP-Link TL-WR841N v8.0

I got a TL-WR851ND v8.1 (intl). Flashed jnjn's firmware (http://jnjn.homepc.it:10581/files/downl … actory.rar). And I think I bricked my router. Only the status light (the first one) is on. Tried a 30/30/30 reset but no results. Do I have to boy another router or is there a way to recover it?

Thanx in advance!

Re: TP-Link TL-WR841N v8.0

TL-WR851N v8.2 flashed on AA 12.09 beta2 using the stock web interface was a total success!
http://downloads.openwrt.org/attitude_a … actory.bin
Read everything on the forum + wiki and assumed the worse requiring a serial cable to unbrick, but it worked without any issues! First logon through telnet to setup the password and there is no need to install luci separately..!

Re: TP-Link TL-WR841N v8.0

great news, thank you

Re: TP-Link TL-WR841N v8.0

I Unbricked my WR841N v8.2 - without hardware hacks.

I will explain how to revert to STOCK firmware.

1) Set your Computer IP to 192.168.1.2 (Ethernet, not WiFi)
2) Connect to your router, in the WAN port (blue)
3) Ping 192.168.1.1 continuously. (Helps identify when it's ready)
4) Turn Router ON. Press the WPS/Reset button many times.
5) Wait for LED under gear icon to flash rapidly.
6) Wait for PING to respond (Not failed response)
7) Telnet into 192.168.1.1 from your PC
8) In telnet, CD to /tmp
9) Copy stock firmware (Link) to /tmp (wget is installed by default! Download link is ZIP, firmware is BIN!)
10) Rename firmware to: tplink.bin
11) Type: mtd -r write /tmp/tplink.bin firmware
12) Wait for "Reboot" message. If error message appears, manually reboot.

Your router is now back to Factory Defaults.

Installed on my previously bricked v8.2 and works. (Yet to identify any bugs)

Also flashed my TL-WR841N v8.2 with beta 2 from the stock web interface, everything is working flawlessly.
Thanks devs.

Re: TP-Link TL-WR841N v8.0

Hi all, i'm newbie and i've just bought a v8.1 intl. I see that v8.2 works with openwrt AA 12.09 beta2. What about v8.1?
Thank you

Re: TP-Link TL-WR841N v8.0

Step 8? please elaborate/ did you use Putty? can you break down the steps?

Thank you

Step 8) In telnet, type: cd /tmp

I used Terminal on my Mac.
However, in windows just go to Start -> Run -> CMD and then type: telnet

If telnet is not installed on windows, google "enable Telnet Client windows"

Sorry, I'm not good at making tutorials sad

I will try and post something later that explains it step-by step in a simple way smile

Re: TP-Link TL-WR841N v8.0

I got telnet up, i type cd /tmp  -  invalid command.
If you can tutorial it that be amazing.
Appreciate it allot.

You could probably use WinSCP instead.

If anything can be done? How to write the new a good image?

Re: TP-Link TL-WR841N v8.0

hi, I can confirm that this version http://downloads.openwrt.org/attitude_a … actory.bin works also with v8.1 . I upgraded from stock web ui

Re: TP-Link TL-WR841N v8.0

Does AA beta2 have Luci or it must be installed separately?

Re: TP-Link TL-WR841N v8.0

aa beta2 has luci installed

Re: TP-Link TL-WR841N v8.0

stupid question, everyone here has FIXED antennas or rp-sma detachable? WR841ND also exist? 'cause it's NONSENSE that every other version of wr841 is named "nd" while v8 is named "n", generate confusion while choosing image from files list cause v8 is BEFORE other versions!!

Re: TP-Link TL-WR841N v8.0

upgrade from http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/ … ctory.bin. 5 min ago. Its WORK FINE :-) !

Re: TP-Link TL-WR841N v8.0

so, with v8.1 both http://downloads.openwrt.org/attitude_a … actory.bin
and
http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/ … actory.bin
are working??

The first time I flashed from original UI http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/ … actory.bin I bricked sad

Re: TP-Link TL-WR841N v8.0

I have telnet working - not clear what the steps are":
1. open cmd
2. type "telnet 192.168.1.1"


Then what????

(PS AVEYER not sure why winSCP makes a difference?)

this makes no sense.. Snapshot builds change continuously, you can't trust them, and you can't make these comparisions.
