Talking about the TL-WDR4300 v1.1, yes perfectly. Ethernet, switch and wlan are fully functional - EEPROM regdomain is US.

The same as with all prebuilt trunk images, you can download/install LuCI (or build an image including it), install kmod-ath9k and configure your wlan.

Hi slh,

I have built my own image, did you just install it from the firmware upload page on the original firmware?

thanks

Re: TP-Link TL-WDR4310 v1.0 First Steps

Yes, you can flash openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-wdr4300-v1-squashfs-factory.bin directly from the upgrade page of the original firmware.

Re: TP-Link TL-WDR4310 v1.0 First Steps

Any improvements in range/performance over stock?

Re: TP-Link TL-WDR4310 v1.0 First Steps

How to you flash the router, is it through the TP-Link Factory config page or via serial tftp?
Edit - Sorry didn't read will try it now.

Re: TP-Link TL-WDR4310 v1.0 First Steps

Could someone please tell me if trunk works for WDR4300 (or just WDR4310) and how much gbit lan throughput is on this router as it seems quite cpu heavy? (with iperf or smb or ftp)

I mean from PC to Router or Router to PC, not just routed PC to PC. (to use as a NAS with a USB HDD)

Re: TP-Link TL-WDR4310 v1.0 First Steps

I did the openssl benchmark and updated the wiki pages.
Trunk works fine.

Re: TP-Link TL-WDR4310 v1.0 First Steps

Hi, anyone know how to put this router into Simultaneous Dual Band Mode?
I can put it into 2.4GHZ Mode and 5GHZ Mode but not Simultaneous Dual Band Mode
Also during testing the NATing Performance took a real beating.
Original firmware was able to almost hit gigabit routing speeds but OpenWRT only managed 30% of Gigabit speeds.
I am quite sure it is due to the missing hardware NATing in OpenWRT, anyway to fix it?

Re: TP-Link TL-WDR4310 v1.0 First Steps

My personal builds and other files for the WDR4310 V1.0 are available (for a limited time) on my pathetically weak and slow Seagate GoFlex Net server.
E-Mail or PM for the link.

Re: TP-Link TL-WDR4310 v1.0 First Steps

My primary concern with my own build is if I screwed something up is it easy enough to restore a working build, whether it be stock or openwrt?

Re: TP-Link TL-WDR4310 v1.0 First Steps

When I configure one wlan with 2,4ghz and another with 5ghz... is openwrt able to choose the right atheros chips for each wlan? Maybe it doesn´t recognize both of them correctly...

Anyone able to bring HWAccel into OpenWRT?

Re: TP-Link TL-WDR4310 v1.0 First Steps

alphasparc/ vanhaakonnen, you configure radio0 and radio1 individually - you can use the same SSID/ passphrase or use individual ones for each band. LuCI is smart enough to only offer you the frequencies actually supported by the wlan cards.

yes, reinstall latest trunk and then install any kmod package you want.
or just force install it with "--force-depends"

Reinstallation worked fine for me - thanks! smile

Does anybody know how vlan tagging with the 4310 is working?
I tried to let all four lan ports in the default configuration without vlan tagging. Then I wanted to use the default WAN Interface with an IP in VLAN10 with vlan tagging. I tried to configure it but it doesn´t work.... How must I set the configuration?

Re: TP-Link TL-WDR4310 v1.0 First Steps

WDR3600 is new on the TP-Link web site Advertised as 600Mbps it is 2x2 on both bands.
http://www.tp-link.com/en/products/details/?categoryid=2268&model=TL-WDR3600
On the China website New is the WDR3300 (same?)
http://www.tp-link.com.cn/pages/promos/wireless/2012-06-29/
It is likely to be same as the WDR3310 released earlier this year in China.
Note : 3310 has two USB ports 3300 only has one.

Perhaps this new one is already supported smile

Re: TP-Link TL-WDR4310 v1.0 First Steps

If you didn't overwrite the bootloader, try method 2 of this: http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/generic.flashing .
If you succeed in getting back openwrt, DON'T try to flash the 4300 firmware to the 4310, the fw's have differences.

If you overwrote the bootloader you most likely have to burn the flash by desoldering and using a burner that works with the Spansion FL064KIF.

OR you might use your warranty, if you have. (just don't mention what you did)

Re: TP-Link TL-WDR4310 v1.0 First Steps

The TL-WDR4310 v1.0 should be supported since today's trunk/ r32683. The autobuilders will probably start generating the according openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-wdr4310-v1-squashfs-factory.bin images within the next few days, which can be flashed directly from the vendor's firmware upgrade pages.
