Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

Why dont you make a patch for Attitude adjustment? Its released, where as the  trunk will keep changing.

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

@kamwanlai: thank you again for sharing your script!

@ron: I am interested to complete the patch against current trunk and submit it to openwrt-devel list for official inclusion. Later I can produce a patch for  AA.

Here goes the instruction of how to flash TL-MR13U with OEM firmware to OpenWRT.

I got my unit from AliExpress shop named DNS, exceptional attention, very good price and extremely fast delivery.

TP-Link TL-MR13U has a button on the left to check the battery level. If you press it you will see several blue leds turning on on the left side of the unit, right where you see a blue line, on its right side. My unit came with 3 leds charge level.

I put it to charge for several hours with 5V 1A charger (I understand that we can use 5V 2A charges too) I had from ebook reader. While charging it has a blue leds turning on as the charge progress, all leds go off as soon as it gets fully charged (4 leds).

I have not tryed to connect to the router with Ethernet cables as I did last time with TP-Link TL-MR10U and directly started the unit trying to connect by Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi came up (SSID: TP-LINK_XXXXXX, where XXXXXX is the last 6 digits of MAC address of your router printed on its back), but I was unable to get an IP address lease from the router. I had the switch on the router in position "AP", so I turned off the router, moved the switch into the middle position - "Router" and turned it on again. This time I got an IP lease.

Pointing the browser to http://192.168.1.1/ I got following screen:
http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2843/9328289087_127af8d7f6_m.jpg
where I just put "admin" (it was printed on the router's back) and pressed the button.

I got next screen:
http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2863/9328288939_62386a3a16_m.jpg
Sorry, I have no idea what it means, I just pressed the button and moved to router's main screen:
http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3681/9331084272_19fa0aa25c_m.jpg
From this screen I can see following interesting information:

3.15.1 Build 130517 Rel. 51827n
TL-MR13U v1 00000000

I assume that first line gives us information about firmware used and the second one - about hardware revision we have.

Taking steps to last item in the left column, and then selecting third item from top of the new list you reach firmware upgrade page (you can try to navigate to http://192.168.1.1/SoftwareUpgradeRpm.htm). Click on the button on the right of the input field, select firmware image "openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-mr13u-v1-squashfs-factory.bin" (the factory component in name is important) and press the button lower on the left. This will start the file upload to the router and you will advance to this screen:
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7399/9331084560_c36c192590_m.jpg
You will see it for some time without any change as the file uploads to router. As soon as upload had finished you will advance to this screen:
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7319/9331084502_1c1318e791_m.jpg
I assume that this progress bar show the flashing process progress. At some point you will loose wi-fi connection, I think in this moment the router reboots. As flashing finishes you will get this screen:
http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3730/9331084402_bacbb5f903_m.jpg
And few moments later the browser will refresh the page and you will get "Error 404" as the OpenWRT is running now and wi-fi is disabled by default:
http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5457/9331084382_67cf9d33d5_m.jpg

That's it. Your router now has the OpenWRT firmware, you need to connect by Ethernet cable, telnet to 192.168.1.1, run "passwd", type twice your new root's password and exit. Now you should be able to connect by ssh and continue with router configuration. Probably you want to edit /etc/config/wireless and remove this line to get Wi-Fi working:

# REMOVE THIS LINE TO ENABLE WIFI: 
option disabled 0

To start wi-fi interface just run "wifi" on command line.

You also may find useful to instal LuCI for easy web-based configuration:

opkg update
opkg install luci
/etc/init.d/uhttpd enable
/etc/init.d/uhttpd start

To transfer package files to router for further installation I use scp:

scp packagename.ipk root@192.168.1.1:/tmp/

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

They fixed MEGA so here comes build r37513 for TL-MR13U:

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

thanks for the update @otlabs.

I would also love to see a patch for AA 12.09 r36088.

My MR13U is on the way!

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

You are very welcome @grayman4hire! Thank you for testing. My roadmap is following - I am waiting for acceptance of the patch for TL-MR10U unit in main trunk, ASAP it gets accepted I will submit a patch for TL-MR13U and right after that I will do my best to add support for TL-13U in AA. Hope your MR13U will arrive in one week, maybe I will have an AA patch that time ;-)

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

You can also take a look of this
http://www.yoobao.com/en/product.asp?b_ … p;a_id=739

I think it is tl-wr703 inside.

That router has a built in flashlight! Too funny. Is it a Cree?

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

Nowadays most of those external battery also include "light".
And that LED light can last for over hundreds of hours !
(that one claimed that able to light up for 380hrs)
It is quite useful !

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

I made some final changes to patch, now it applies against current trunk (r37561). So far latest firmware based on trunk runs fine so I submitted this patch to openwrt-devel list. Here comes the latest version of the patch:

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

@jamc928, thank you for the link! It would be better to use https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=45631 and provide short descruiption about what we will find following this link, something like:

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

I made a mistake in my patch, Cezary Jackiewicz was so kind to comment me about it - we need to use "001301"*) in ./target/linux/ar71xx/base-files/lib/ar71xx.sh. Please, take this into account.

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

My MR-13U came this Saturday, but no one was around to sign for the registered mail (of all days they had to come on a Saturday). Of course, my wife can't find the notice they left, so now I'm trying to figure out what post office to pick it up from.

Anyways...any status on the AA patch?

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

Sorry, no AA patch yet - I am still waiting for any response on patch submitted to openwrt-devel list.

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

Thanks for the update and no problem @otlabs.

Just got my MR13U!

How do I go about building my own firmware image using the patch you provided above?

cd ~
mkdir mr13u
cd mr13u
svn co -r 37561 svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/trunk
#cut/paste the content of your patch above into mr13u.37561.patch
patch -p1< mr13u.37561.patch
make menuconfig
#select mr13u

Just want to make sure I got it right. From @slboat pictures (thank you so much!) I would hate to have open it up to recover.

Thanks

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

There is no need to checkout r37561, this patch should cleanly apply on top of latest r37734 (I just checked).

Yes, all steps are correct, if you get any complains from patch - publish them here.

IMPORTANT: do not forget to change 130101 -> 001301 as it stated in msg #38!

UPDATE: I have corrected the patch in msg #35, you can just copy from there.

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

Thanks @otlabs!

Call me paranoid, but I'm going to stick with r37561 since its been tested by you smile

I copied your patch to my dropbox to make it easier to pull down. Here is what I'm running:

cd ~
mkdir mr13u

What am I doing wrong? Can't image those FAILED messages are normal.

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

It's not so bad idea to use r37561 ;-) Trunk is so unstable.

If you copied the patch from this message board you can get some problems with white spaces, e.g. tabs were changed to 8 spaces. I assume that's the problem.

Do you know an option for patch to ignore whitespaces?

I am unable to attach any file to my messages here. Can you download the patch from MEGA?

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

Yeah, I'll give that a try. Thanks

[Edit] - That was it. I used the patch file from mega (with the minor correction you noted in post 38) and all is good now.

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

Hi,

does somebody know how could we use it with a solar panel charger ?
https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=45680

Which panel must we use and which charger control must we use to have it as an autonomous router ?

Sincerely thanks and have a nice day,

Miguipda ;-)

Re: TP-Link TL-MR13U - small router with built-in 10,400 mAh battery

@grayman4hire: Great! You are welcome!

@miguipda: great start on so important topic of solar energy for autonomous routers! Keep researching and sharing your results! It's my huge dream to put MR13U on solar only power supply (and MR10U with built-in webcam).
