Topic: TP-Link TL-MR3040 - Getting into fail safe mode

Hi, does anyone know how to get into fail safe mode on TP-Link TL-MR3040? I might have bricked it... tongue

Re: TP-Link TL-MR3040 - Getting into fail safe mode

There is no failsafe on the TL-MR3420

http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/tl-mr3420#failsafe

I have brick no.2 and will try the serial debrick method.  DKU-5 cable only £2.29 from ebay, some soldering and some fun!

Not much help to questions on here so trial and error until i get my config right.  I managed to brick mine through LuCI earlier.  The last one i bricked through CLI.

It is a MR3040, the one that comes with battery.

Sorry for my mistake, i am not sure about this device but what does it say on the hardware page about failsafe?

Re: TP-Link TL-MR3040 - Getting into fail safe mode

No problem. Unfortunately, there is no fail safe section yet on the wiki page..

Re: TP-Link TL-MR3040 - Getting into fail safe mode

Is it possible to to install Openwrt on European mr3040 already or only on a Chinese TL-MR11U which is really not the same device?

Some people may brick their devices if trying on the wrong device!

Most installation guides refer to TL-MR11U!!!

European version working fine with OpenWrt.

Hello,

there is a fail safe mode on TP-Link TL-MR3040, using the reset buton :
- switch on the router
- wait 5 sec
- press the reset switch

Et voilà, your are in fail safe mode, as you can verify it with a "ping 192.168.1.1"...

Ah, don't worry with the LED, they are never flashing !

Bye
