Re: Support for TP-Link Archer C2600

The Archer C7 can do 5 Mbps through a VPN connection. I'd expect C2600 to do maybe twice as much, but not much more than that. Are you sure you know where you get that 500 Mbps from?

How difficult would it be to get HW support for encryption? Could someone write it if someone else paid enough? Or is it about binary modules or the chip maker not releasing the specs?

It has to be incorporated in the design of the chip -instruction). It is not something which can be solved by software afterwards.

Re: Support for TP-Link Archer C2600

Hi all,

thank you for all the help you provided with this thread.

With my Archer C2600, I moved a while ago to LEDE, it worked flawlessly, and it now makes several days I try to go back to TPL Factory firmware with no success.
I tryed flashing factory firmware with TFTP recovery mode, but while booting the routers reset itselfs and keeps rebooting for ever.

I connected serial interface to check what is going on at Boot prompt.

Hereafter I compare both factory boot log available at the beginning of this thread (forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?pid=310048#p310048) and the boot log I get myself after flashing factory firmware.

The differences I identified between my log and the online official log are :

right after :

[    0.488347] Partition(from smem) rootfs -- Offset:3f0000 Size:1b00000

I receive :

[    0.488378] get_bootconfig_partition: no dual boot info in shared memory

Instead of :

[    0.488784] get_bootconfig_partition: magic not found

I have tun loading here :

[    9.153420] tun: Universal TUN/TAP device driver, 1.6
[    9.157482] tun: (C) 1999-2004 Max Krasnyansky <maxk@qualcomm.com>

This one does not load into online official log, I don't know if it is an issue.


I experience an automatic Reboot right before :

Finally I would like to try this method ("dump full flash with factory firmware" available here : forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?pid=311703#p311703)] but unfortunatly the link seems to be dead. Can someone repost this dump file ?


Any feedback welcomed.

Thank you.

Re: Support for TP-Link Archer C2600

Just to check, I updated my US 1.0 model to the newest Factory Image (v 1.1.8 2017-3-10 that they slipped out quietly recently) via TFTP.

It loaded perfectly fine. And I was also able to go back to LEDE 17.01.1 perfectly fine as well.

The new factory image does have a new uboot version, so I was a little concerned, but I wanted to have all the updated code as possible.

17.01.2 is working fine. And dnsmasq 2.77 fixed the Android IPv6 DNS issue as well (the router is now correctly set to be the DNS provider).

What is the benefit of getting the new bootloader code?
Doesn't it hand over to the OS once it does it job (ie boot)?

I mean, why did you take the risk?

I like the newest version of whatever code possible. And as long as they didn't screw up the TFTP recovery portion, you can always go back.

Plus I take care of some other people's routers, so I wanted to make sure the process would all work.

Re: Support for TP-Link Archer C2600

I'm not familiar with the newest oem software. Does it 'lockout' after market software?


TPLINK C2600 LEDE reboot

No more than it ever did -- which was the point of my post.

Does 17.01.2 have the reboot fix?

I could not find the same patch file in the 17.01.2 tree:

It does not. The fix for that was a sizeable patch to how MTD works, and it was only backported to 4.9, not 4.4, so it should be in trunk, but not in 17.01.x. The byte addressing issue affected more devices than just ours.

If you want a snapshot image with it, you'll need to use the unofficial builds on this thread.

Re: Support for TP-Link Archer C2600

May I know what is the difference between superwrt and LEDE?

Does superwrt work the packages in LEDE?

Will there be an official LEDE bin upgrade with the reboot fix for c2600 v1.1?

1.SuperWRT is an alternative firmware for compatible wireless router equipment. The files are provided free of charge on the site and compiled from the public sources of the LEDE project with adjustments in the kernel and system configurations.
2.Yes

Re: Support for TP-Link Archer C2600

I got a TP-Link Archer C2600 to work on CenturyLink Fiber using a LEDE build: lede-project.org/toh/hwdata/tp-link/tp-link_archer_c2600

I followed most of the instructions from here: scottrmcclure.com/centurylink/

(apologies for the link as text, the forum won't let me post urls)

The ports are not the same on the AC2600 so these are the settings I used:
VLAN ID: 1, CPU(eth0): tagged, CPU(eth1): tagged, LAN 1: untagged, LAN 2: untagged, LAN 3: untagged, LAN 4: untagged, WAN: off
VLAN ID: 201, CPU(eth0): tagged, CPU(eth1): tagged, LAN 1: off, LAN 2: off, LAN 3: off, LAN 4: off, WAN: tagged

Now, I still don't understand tagging but the above works. If someone could double check my settings that would be appreciated.

I'm not including the PPPoE or wireless settings because they're pretty straightforward. The PPPoE instructions are also in the tutorial I followed.

Re: Support for TP-Link Archer C2600

Dear members,

Can I turn off ac2600 remotely over ssh? I tried poweroff and halt commands but c2600 only rebooted.

I have build my image from nbd git repo at Jul 4.

Re: Support for TP-Link Archer C2600

Hello, I am completely new to openwrt and have a couple of really newbie questions that I couldn't find reading the FAQ (most probably my fault though).

Will my current configuration settings (DHCP tables, NAT rules, etc) be wiped if I flash the new firmware?
In case the answer is yes: I do not have wired access to the router (would need to find an adapter for my eth card), will I  be able to connect through a default wireless network to contol it?

Thanks

  • SuperWRT has no credibility, as there's no repo, no forum, no source, no nothing, and should not be trusted.

  • It's a private, not public, site and essentially, for all intents and purposes, is nothing more than a personal project of Daniel Petre, who claims copyright protection

    • As @nitroshift eloquently stated, "Anyone claiming copyright protection on opensource code is NOT to be trusted."

If one is going to install router firmware, of which is the literal gateway to one's digital life (and anyone else behind the router), one had better be 100% sure they can trust the firmware. 

  • For example, someone flashing DD-WRT, LEDE. or OpenWrt doesn't need to know how to read or write code, as there's thousands of others who do that review the source code and final files weekly, if not daily.


It's strongly recommended any users who flashed SuperWRT to flash a different firmware that's opensource, via USB-TTL, not through LuCI or SSH.  Since there's no way to determine if SuperWRT is malicious, as it's not opensource and appears to have copyright protection, and to ensure it's fully wiped, flashing via serial should be performed.

@magnum44 Please stop trying to get forum members to flash SuperWRT, as SuperWRT has no credibility and should not be trusted


All of your posts on this forum have thus far been about advocating for users to try potentially malicious firmware, and if another post is made advocating the same, I will request to admins for you to be banned.

Re: Support for TP-Link Archer C2600

now that I have more than two routers to test, I have noticed that my tplink cant achieve the same speeds as the others. Is there a setting or settings I should try?

thanks

Speeds for what? wired, wireless, VPN?

The NAT speed won't be as high as on stock, because the QC custom HW NAT acceleration isn't being used.

Wireless that is

Re: Support for TP-Link Archer C2600

I've bricked my C2600 with LEDE in a stupid way.  sad
Because i had several custom files spread over /etc, /bin, sbin, and some more, I wanted to create a simple backup by scp'ing everything over to my Windows laptop.
When I wanted to drag all folders on the LEDE to my laptop, I accidentially dragged one folder over to another and the SCP client started a MOVE operation. I canceled that directly, and tried to see if I was able to see if anything was moved. But I did not know either source or target and did not see anything wrong.

But after the next power cycle, the router now only has a blinking power LED.  sad
Is there a way to re-flash from this state, where it seems like about nothing is loading/working?

Re: Support for TP-Link Archer C2600

I had no luck with the tftp'ed original tp-link firmware. After that there was only a lede without luci and with an unknown ssh access password. Probably this was a mix of the old and new files.  I uploaded the latest lede-factory bin file instead and now I have a clean working lede again.

Re: Support for TP-Link Archer C2600

Do wifi's LED already work? Any news?
