Topic: TP-Link TL-WR741ND version?

Hello
I purchased TP-Link TL-WR741ND router, version 1.6. I didn't find this version in the supported devices at this page:
http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/tl-wr741nd

So OpenWRT can be installed correctly on version 1.6? or only supported versions at the page will work?
As I knew from tp-link website, TP-Link TL-WR741ND has 3 main categories for version: V1, V2, V3, i.e v 1.x has one original firmware. Is it the same for OpenWRT?

Thanks

TP-LINK changes hardware between subversions, most notably, flash memory maker/model.
Read a lot more and try hard to figure out which file you should test.
Report back if you succeed, fail or desist.

Thank you for your help.
I managed to install LuCI web interface successfully on my router.
http://downloads.openwrt.org/backfire/1 … actory.bin

Installation was done smoothly without facing any errors!

Also I installed a web server on my router, uploaded my files via winSCP and I can access my web pages via port 81 from any PC in my LAN, via 192.168.1.1:81

Well, I have another question please, Is there a tutorial to explain how can I make port forwarding for this port, 81? I want my pages can be accessed over the Internet!

Yes, there is. But that isn't port redirect, just firewall port open.

Where can I find tutorials about port forwarding and firewall, please?
