@vladorion

yesterday i was trying it. Unfourtuannely i stopped as i got the "ttyUSB1" but from this point it should be pretty easy!

The main problem was to get the kmod-usb-serial running. If you want to try, try the "packages" which i posted before. At the moment the online kmod-usb-serial does not work.

@anarchy99: I do not understand, what do you need?

Greetings,

I have one (noob?) question about sysupgrade: there are 3 different binaries:
ap96-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin
pb42-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin
pb44-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin
in the repository: http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/ar71xx/
can you, please, explain what's the difference (and how I should choose which-one to use)?

Best regards...

106

hmmm... failsafe mode was working for me so maybe i was doing something wrong?

This week i was working in Dalian (China), afterwork i was trying to get the TL-TR861 10400E at the local markets... no changse this device is not available. At leas i found 2 sellers for this device, i asked about 50+ shops. The market price was betrween 220 Yuan to 250 Yuan.

Also a chinese colleague at work tryed to get it over the internet (TL-TR861 10400E). Nothing! I dindt want to get it to any price!

Hi,

I'm and teacher and I'd like to use the TP-Link MR13U as a LibraryBox/PirateBox for students for get materials, books etc,

So far I have replaced the TP-Link made firmware with OpenWRT firmware version made specially for this device which I got from here. http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/ … actory.bin

I have also been able to telnet to the device set a password and then SSH into it and modify /etc/config/wireless (I noticed there were two lines that said "option disable 0" so i deleted both and then the wifi started working)

I'm now looking to put librarybox onto it.

- Do I need to install LuCI enable me to install librarybox?
- Are there MR13U specific instrcutions or can I just use the instructions written for MR3020 seen here http://librarybox.us/MR3020.php or for the MR3020 (or WR703N) http://daviddarts.com/piratebox-diy-openwrt/

thanks to all the contributors.

I've manage to get this device working with ful piratebox features by using a zustom firmware build supplied by fried zombie.

My backup solution for MR13U:
Mount Flash memory on a small PCB with headers for be able to deattach it.
I have constructed a adapter for use a TotalPhase Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter.

My device got bricked. Now i guess i have to disassemble it and connect a serial cable. Can you explain how to open the case with minimal damage?

112

I first used a knife(that you eat with), to first break the glue, a thin one.
After i have separate it a little bit i take two more knives and bending.

113

Opened it already with a surgery scalpel. Now I need to solder wires to tx, rx and gnd pads, they are very small sad

114

good luck... if you are not expert in soldering i'd try keeping the wires on pads by hand.. call a friend to help xD

Hello!
Search for new firmware for TP-Link TL-MR13U and found that TP-Link relise source of original firmware under GPL - http://www.tp-link.com/resources/gpl/150Router.tar
Maybe somebody can translate original firmware on english?
