Topic: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

TP-Link got a nice wi-fi router with 10,400 mAh rechargeable battery - TP-Link TL-MR13U!

Oficial page:
http://www.tp-link.com.cn/product_150m_306.html (in Chinese)

Google Translated:
http://translate.google.com/translate?h … m_306.html

You can get it for about 45USD at AliExpress:
http://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?SearchText=tl-mr13u

Anybody got this beauty? Any pictures of it? Any chance to get OpenWRT running on it?

It would be nice to have it with [Pirate|Library]Box!

What is a Pirate/Library-Box anway???

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

So, PirateBox = opkg-package for OpenWrt + configuration for OpenWrt of kind of Captive Portal + direct connect hub + IRC server /other chat server / forum software

And LibraryBox = it what? and why do they use the piratebox-logo: https://github.com/griffey/LibraryBox/blob/master/piratebox-logo.png

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

Yes, you are right - PirateBox is a captive portal with file sharing and anonymous chat.

PirateBox has several follow-up/similar projects, LibraryBox is one of them. Take a look at very end of this page - http://daviddarts.com/piratebox/

LibraryBox is designed for legal file distribution in libraries, no chart.

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

Hm, GPLv3, so why isn't it available in the OpenWrt-Repository?

I couldn't find a link to the source-code.

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

Yeah, it is quite challenging  to find a link to source code. Maybe because all these project based on Droopy (http://stackp.online.fr/droopy). It was hard, but I found these links to source code:
PirateBox - https://github.com/cr/mkPirateBox
LibraryBox - https://github.com/griffey/LibraryBox

You can write to authors asking to publish source code. It would be nice if they publish direct links to latest versions.

How can i share info here and in open wrt hardware page about PirateBox and libraryBox

You need to register at OpenWRT wiki to be able create/edit pages. It is a separate registration. Credential you have for forum are not working for wiki. Visit http://wiki.openwrt.org/start?do=register and register yourself.

Then learn a bit about how to use wiki - http://wiki.openwrt.org/meta/start.

You can also start a new thread about [Pirate|Library]Box in General Discussion (if it was not already done).

Good luck! And thank you for contributing!

I have running openwrt on tl-mr13u.It works well.

Click here to download the firmware(rev36674) and packages OR here to download what you want.

Here is how I change on openwrt source base r36674.(git diff output)You can download this file from here

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

Wow. That looks like an awesome router!

Are both USB operational? Or is one of them charge only? Basically, can I use one USB port for a USB Flash Drive and another for USB Audio?

Thank you @kamwanlai. Hopefully we can get this router officially supported soon.

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

Great job @kamwanlai! Thank you! I am waiting for my router to arrive!

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

@kamwanlai: could you post OEM bootlog and OpenWRT bootlog? I will add them to wiki.

Thank you @kamwanlai. Hopefully we can get this router officially supported soon.

only one usb port can transfer data,the 2A output usb port is charge only.

I don't have serial cable to read OEM bootlog.

Here is OpenWRT bootlog.

TL-MR13U    US $40.83  with free shipping world wide

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

My unit just arrived. I took some pictures of it: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjGNzqG5

Now I am charging it, will test it later!

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

I went ahead and ordered one this weekend.

Hopefully someone will document the OpenWRT installation process by the time I get it. smile

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

I got OpenWRT running on TP-Link TL-MR13U!!! I made a different patch based on https://lists.openwrt.org/pipermail/openwrt-devel/2013-July/020580.html, it is based on Bleeding Edge, r37237 (kernel 3.8.13):

Tomorrow I would like to build an image against latest trunk (with kernel 3.10.1). I would like to add extended support for buttons developed by @kamwanlai also.

I documented the install process and will publish it tomorrow (you just need to use OEM WebGUI and minor tweak).

Meanwhile if you want to test my build you can get all the files at MEGA:

20130719 (Folder Link, 34.5MB)
https://mega.co.nz/#F!lUI3wBjb!ezMX0G6yn5pUKbGTFzhOsw

Update: I just plugged a USB flash drive and it was powered correctly, in dmesg I got an error:

[  803.180000] usb 1-1: new full-speed USB device number 2 using ehci-platform
[  808.300000] usb 1-1: device descriptor read/64, error -71

Anyway, tomorrow I plan to switch to new kernel and will re-check this issue.
