Topic: TP-Link TL-WR741ND first install OpenWRT

Hello dear users)
There was a lot of questions

So here I sit reading about this Open VRT and even do not understand.
The reason for the transition from regular firmware is support because iptv on the factory firmware with support iptv router hangs every day.
Now the questions
1) Will iptv work?
2) I have a dynamic IP is now IP and DNS assigned automatically, this will be no problems?
3) so all still possible or not to flash the access point in the usual way? simply pointing to the new firmware through a standard web interface, simply solder and connect to rx tx does not hunt, and it will be possible to revert back to the factory firmware with OpenVRT without using com port.
4) I have a version 1.9 router as I understand it there for 2 shells Gargoyle and Luci, which one is preferable to choose.
5) If all as is, you can download the firmware from the section
Download a Install Image from this group if is the first flash from OEM firmware: with the numbers 24045 and 24714 all right saying?
6) Is it necessary to prescribe the ip on the computer 192.168.1.2???
7) If I make up my mind to flash, it will look like this:
Download Firmware
Did the usual firmware update via the web interface (but the firmware is already OpenWRT)
Rebutnulsya router and I already went under the Open ART
All right??
Drop pozhaluysa ICQ or mail your (agent communication in the mail) that-be to chat with you who is OpenWRT yes, and then suddenly the future issues arise.

FAQ http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/tl-wr741nd many questions here is the answer, but I have trouble understanding the English language on this has created this topic.

Re: TP-Link TL-WR741ND first install OpenWRT

1) If work with original firmware will work with OpenWrt too.
2)
3) No need to solder serial until there are big problems. Going back it's not as easy.
4) Gargoyle 1.3.9 at this time has many features out-of-the-box that are not possible with LuCI due to memory limits. Notably: QoS
5) http://www.gargoyle-router.com/download … actory.bin
6) No until there are big problems.
7) Right. But... Tell me again: Already OpenWrt? This router has been provided by IPTV provider with OpenWrt already installed? The interface looks like this?
Maybe is a customized router, then:
1) No

Re: TP-Link TL-WR741ND first install OpenWRT

Nilfred
thanks for the reply.
I have the standard firmware. "The interface looks like this?" yes
And on this firmware has support for IPTV, but the router on this firmware freezes about 1 every day.

System Tools -> - Firmware Upgrade -> "5) http://www.gargoyle-router.com/download ... actory.bin" All right?

I want to have OpenWRT firmware to support iptv, but i have the standard firmware.

2) Question
http://www.tp-link.com/simulator/TL-WR741ND_v1&v2/index.htm network -> wan -> dynamic ip
Is there support in OpenWRT dynamic ip?  I think yes or no? (Y/N) )))

please explain to me how, step by step to install open wrt.

thanks for replying to me, and that trying to understand my wrong English.

Re: TP-Link TL-WR741ND first install OpenWRT

Don't do it by yourself. You'll probably brick it.

Re: TP-Link TL-WR741ND first install OpenWRT

Do not even know what to say to you,
I ask you to ping a router, it pleases
But at 192.168.1.1 does not want to go ... upset, although pleased that pinged.

What do I do ?))))

Re: TP-Link TL-WR741ND first install OpenWRT

Here I am)))
It was not as bad as I thought) the router is alive and works fine with the web interface, so only I do not understand anything else out there, but I think of you, and not only your help will deal.

Now the main problem to sort out lost web interface.
And how to get it back.
Do not think that I'm noob, I just have to look into this area, and once everything works, then I'll understand)

About the different browsers.
I tried:

Re: TP-Link TL-WR741ND first install OpenWRT

It's still a browser caching redirection stuff...
Others web interfaces doesn't support https out-of-the-box, these already redirected URLs should work:
Gargoyle: http://192.168.1.1/login.sh or https://192.168.1.1/login.sh
LuCI: http://192.168.1.1/index.html -> http://192.168.1.1/cgi-bin/luci
X-Wrt: http://192.168.1.1/index.html -> http://192.168.1.1/cgi-bin/webif/info.sh
But can't test anymore...
Wiki edited asking newcomers to report here if those work without clear the cache.
Private browsing should temporary workaround too. This time not for watching any porn wink

Re: TP-Link TL-WR741ND first install OpenWRT

I just installed Backfire 10.03.1rc4 with Luci to a fresh TL-WR741ND rev. 1.9 and everything went smoothly. I restored factory settings just in case, then uploaded the firmware with the usual firmware upgrade page following instructions in wiki. Then I went to kitchen for few minutes and when I came back there was the Luci login page waiting for me. I didn't have to click any links. I used Iceweasel browser.

Then later I noticed the batman-adv in 10.03.1rc4 is too old as I need v2011.0.0 so I had to install trunk from the wiki page. But the opkg repository link was wrong, pointing to backfire and I had to change it to trunk repository after which I could install batman-adv. But now when I'm beginning to need drivers for USB WLAN stick I see I'll have to compile my own firmware anyway because there aren't any pre-compiled USB WLAN drivers available.

So there haven't been any real problems and my tests with B.A.T.M.A.N have worked well. Thanks very much for everyone who have been programming this great stuff!

Re: TP-Link TL-WR741ND first install OpenWRT

Did anybody try to install OpenWRT (last trunk) on TL-WR741ND V3 hardware?

I am in a little hurry to install two of them as either a WDS or as a simple Wireless Bridge (they will arrive on Monday and they should be installed on the Tuesday), so I don't wish to test it and spend uncertain amount of time with recovery if nobody succeeded yet...

(These units weren't in stock when I ordered them, so I wasn't sure about their revision until they called me that they received the new shipment. And it turned out to be V3...)

Re: TP-Link TL-WR741ND first install OpenWRT

Open it and take a good picture, like this thread.
Locate and detail flash chip and RAM chip. Look around for another piece of RAM chip.
Is suspicious to have less RAM like 841 V8 do, but all still unconfirmed.

Re: TP-Link TL-WR741ND first install OpenWRT

Well, I opened the boxes and both devices are labeled as V2.1 on their sticker (despite the webshop's SKU).

I decided to install OpenWRT (trunk 2011.08.20) on them but the wiki instructions about partition reset in failsafe mode (confirmed as a required step for V2.1 after the very first flashing) let me down: the specified reboot command didn't work and there is no web interface after a power cycle.
I will keep trying...

By the way... Is there a default (LuCi?) web interface in the trunk images anyway (or those don't come with a web GUI by default)?

Re: TP-Link TL-WR741ND first install OpenWRT

Re: TP-Link TL-WR741ND first install OpenWRT

I could run the package manager but it couldn't install LuCi because I am already out of free space.

I guess I will compile a basic firmware with ImageBuilder to start with.



Do you mean the "howto/firstlogin" page into Hungarian?

The ImageGenerator (aka ImageBuilder) does not compile anything! That's why I dared to ruthlessly change it's name. Avoid the confusion. Today!


Also note, that the wiki-page for the ImageGenerator is quite outdated. I'm not saying its not good, I'm saying I dunno.
This would be it:  http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/obtain.firmware.generate


I would rather start with this: http://wiki.openwrt.org/about/toolchain and do everything from scratch. This will not only compile, but also cross-compile stuff. Thus it will take some time (hours) and also space (3,5GiB).

Doesn't have to be accurate, just see that the result makes sense.

and flash rom.bin from web interface.

Ok, the WR741ND V3 rom runs really well.

Use the same method, I flashed the openwrt rom:
http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/ … actory.bin

Just change the version to v3 and fix md5 checksum as described above.

Now it's running OpenWRT!

And BTW, you can use mtd to flash back the WR741ND V3 rom.

Hope this help.

Re: TP-Link TL-WR741ND first install OpenWRT

Hello. I just tried to install openwrt (openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-mr3420-v1-squashfs-factory.bin) to my new TP-LINK TL-MR3420. after the firmware upgrade, i cant accesS to router (192.168.1.1). when i try to connect to http://192.168.1.1/ its says that web page is not available. ive also tried alternative links that are written on http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/tl-mr3420
does anyone has any solution, how to fix this problem. i just want my router to be working again eventhough on official firmware, because now its useless.

Re: TP-Link TL-WR741ND first install OpenWRT

Keep reading (RTFW) until you realize WTF "Web interface: None" means.
Then proceed to the "Search" facility.

If you use the "Web Interface (None)" package, basically this is what you get. You still need to configure Web GUI & 3G module (if you're using 3G modem).

1. Telnet to router

telnet 192.168.1.1

Set root password:-

passwd root

2. Now you can connect to router using SSH (use Putty).
3. Install Web GUI. (http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/luci.essentials)
4. Configure 3G function. (http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/recipes/3gdongle)

When you completed the Web GUI installation, you can open the Web interface (http://192.168.1.1) & flash the original firmware. After you have successfully flashed the original firmware, you need to clear your browser cache. If not, web browser will failed to open Web interface (http://192.168.1.1).

Re: TP-Link TL-WR741ND first install OpenWRT

Just installed the latest build (r30753). Works great, as far as I'm concerned! Hardware: TP-LINK TL-MR3220, version 1.2.

Re: TP-Link TL-WR741ND first install OpenWRT

Just installed from trunk r30753 on a MR3220

I cannot get diversity to work....

root@OpenWrt:~# cat /sys/kernel/debug/ieee80211/phy0/ath9k/modal_eeprom | grep -i ctl
 Ant. Diversity ctl1 :         11
 Ant. Diversity ctl2 :          6

root@OpenWrt:~# iw phy phy0 info | grep -i ant
        Available Antennas: TX 0x1 RX 0x3
        Configured Antennas: TX 0x1 RX 0x3

Also seems the receive antenna is the internal, the transmit is the external....

I wanted to use this unit on a mesh network with a high gain antenna, for now it seems impossible.

Any idea ?
Richard
