Topic: Is TP-Link TL-WR741ND Ver 1.4 supported ?

Hi,

I bought today a TP-Link TL-WR741ND Version 1.4.
The "Table of Hardware" shows that TP-Link TL-WR741ND Version 1 is supported, does that mean that Version 1.4 is also supported ? Or the support is for the especific version (version 1, as stated on Table of Hardware).

Thanks,

Well, after install, the status page shows the following information:

     Firmware Version:      3.11.1 Build 100312 Rel.42991n
     Hardware Version:     WR741N v1 00000000

Maybe the router is not version 1.4 after all.
Does anyone flashed a similar wr741ND with success ?

Thanks

hi there,

I tried Ver 1.4 yesterday and it did not work, actually I managed to brick it. :X

I'm going to get a new one tomorrow and try it agian.

I used the Web interface to install Backfire 10.03 but then lost connection somehow. Any suggestions what to do different this time?

btw, status Page:

Try the newer 10.03.1 RC4 branch.
Also report how did you manage to recover from brick.
"lost connection somehow" mean: no DHCP? no telnet? Lost connection to some extent is a standard behavior. Hope you know what you are talking about.
Thanks for reporting.
