Re: TP-Link Archer MR200

OK, Getting there now.
But I can't install
https://downloads.lede-project.org/rele … pgrade.bin
as it says that the file is too big.

I can install https://downloads.lede-project.org/snap … pgrade.bin
But that has no web interface,right?
Well I can't ssh onto 192.168.1.1 to install LuCI without a password, so I am stuck again now.

There must be an easier way to do this...

Re: TP-Link Archer MR200

OK, I got it sorted now.

I got
https://downloads.lede-project.org/snap … pgrade.bin installed
then used ssh to install LuCI (I found that it defaults to user root with no password).

Now it seems to be working great, however the TP-Link modem web interface seems to be the old one even after I restored to mr200_back_to_stock.bin then updated to the latest OEM firmware before re-installing ArcherC2V1_tp_recovery.bin, installing LuCI and upgrading LEDE again (I am getting used to the procedure now).

One of my objectives is to get accurate stats from each device attached to the MR200 by MAC address so that I know exactly how much data each device is using. There is a stats page in the newer OEM firmware that lists each MAC address but I find that this intermittently resets itself so it is not reliable. Now, after installing LEDE, I don't have anything like this stats page from which I can check the stats for each device.
Is there any way to achieve this?

I already monitor bandwidth from the MR200 using Cacti, but can't see any way of getting cumulative data throughput for each device using that either.

Re: TP-Link Archer MR200

Hello, when updating the firmware by tftp of the Archer MR200, the router has stopped working, I have turned it into a brick.
I want to recover it through the serial port, with the hyperterminal of windos, can you tell me how it is done?
Or where to find as of.
I hope you understand, I use an automatic translator.
Thank you

Re: TP-Link Archer MR200

It can also be with putty.
Thank you

Re: TP-Link Archer MR200

I just came here to thank thank you Heinz for the work you put on it!
I followed your instructions closely and it worked / works like a charm.

Running LEDE Reboot 17.01.2 r3435-65eec8bd5f now.

The only thing I noticed so far is that the 3ginfo output does not correspond with the modem's web-UI.
I got one bar out of four on the modem ui (ht tp hmm/ 192 . 168 . 225 . 1) (that's also what the stock firmware gave me), while 3ginfo says

oot@LEDE:~# 3ginfo

Re: TP-Link Archer MR200

yes, and the point I was trying to make is that this can't be true.

pre-LEDE (OEM FW): 25% or 1 bar

LEDE ('unlocked' USB Modem Web-UI): 1 bar

3ginfo: 90%.

Something doesn't add up.

can I somehow manually send the AT commands to the modem, just to make sure?

Yes, use

Or install picocom, run and manually write at+csq

Any ideas how this corresponds with 1 bar out of 4 on the modem's UI?

Router openvpn client (on mr200)connect to my first home to openvpn server.

Now from my first home i can reach che router web page, but i cant reach modem web page (192.168.1.225). How i can reach this?

Many thanks

Re: TP-Link Archer MR200

Any help with IPv6?

I've tried to setup the MR200 to use IPv6 but I can't seem to get anywhere. I can get an IPv6 address from my ISP but that only means the external rmnet0 interface in the modem gets an IPv6 address. My fumbling with manual config has gone nowhere and there doesn't seem to be anything on the modem that could do router advertisements or DHCPv6. There's no radvd and dnsmasq is version 2.55 which is too old to support IPv6 except for DNS.

Has anyone had any success with IPv6 on MR200? I guess I could look into building a toolchain for the modem and building a newer dnsmasq or radvd. Hoping for an easier solution... Or does anyone have a toolchain ready that I could have?

Re: TP-Link Archer MR200

Just for future reference, there's a typo in your post @Heinz.

The DMZ IP is 192.168.225.100, gateway is 192.168.225.1, DNS is 192.168.225.1

Modem have enabled DMZ to IP 192.168.255.100

Re: TP-Link Archer MR200

Is there a way to configure the LTE modem itself? The GUI reachable via 192.168.225.1 is pretty crippled, say useless.

Funny. I never noticed despite putting those in a bunch of times. I guess I just copied the DMZ IP which is correct and pasted it everywhere, just removing the last two zeros from gateway and DNS...

To reply to myself, as others may be interested:-

I just found a great new monitoring package for LEDE
https://github.com/openwrt/luci/pull/1259

Looks good. I have been struggling to get YAMon running on the MR200 router running LEDE but it is difficult to get that running without a USB drive in the router. I did try to install YAMon to an NFS share without much luck.
I have now re-installed the latest LEDE on the router and installed the nfs client packages.
I have mounted an nfs share manually from the router and set up luci-app-nlbwmon to use the NFS share for the database directory to store the "one file per accounting period" for luci-app-nlbwmon and set "Commit Interval" to "60 s -- commit every minute, useful for non-flash storage" and it seems to be working a treat.

Re: TP-Link Archer MR200

Dear @marvx,
I am facing the same issue. How did you solve your problem?
Did you leave WAN at static?
Have you done anything to WAN6?
Please share this info, as I already spent days sorting out the issue of port forwarding that doesnt work for me.

Ur a genius....it worked....

last question:

I want to set up ddns to all inkl.com, which is supported out of the box. but which interface do i need to select to send the public ip instead of the static set one, or do i need an update script for that.

EDIT: fixed it myself. All fine now. Fingers crossed it willl run stable....

Re: TP-Link Archer MR200

Dear @Heinz,
I am having the same issue as Marvx. I set WAN to Static. Should I do anything to WAN6?
Your help will be greatly appreciated, as I am struggling to open ports for some time right now.

Re: TP-Link Archer MR200

Hi guys,
It seems that your board has mt7620+mt7610e like Archer C2/C20i, in Archer C2 discussion user yoq has ported mt7610e driver from Padavan project and made it works
You can compile the driver for your kernel, upload on your device and configure over console it should works on your tplink too

Here there are instructions:
forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?pid=347117#p347117

I integrated the driver in the kernel and made it LuCi manageable
forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?pid=365213#p365213

I hope this can help you

Is it possible to enable band LTE cat 2 and 5 in this modem?
