Topic: OpenWRT Kamikaze on TP-link tl-wa501g?

The content of this topic has been archived between 31 Aug 2014 and 5 May 2018. Unfortunately there are posts – most likely complete pages – missing.

I was looking for a fix for my WR340GD (the wan port is dead), but after reading the tutorial for using the vxKiller FW, I'll rather try to replace the damn HST1025DR IC.

P/S: Good job xssa.

hi

do you know how to update md5 for TL-WA5210G firmware? i've tried following jvvh5897's method described in this thread https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?pid=327259 but it did not work. maybe it would be possible to squeeze basic networking, ssh server and wifi driver in 1.1MB image?

Where is original firmware for it?

Anyone ?

I have TP-LINK 340G V2.3 (on sticker) REV 5.4 on PCB:

I read all topic and download this files:

  • wr340v5_linux.bin (tl-340g-linux_606fe38dda4014fb8f16b9b8a27cee3e.rar)

  • downgrade340.bin

  • openwrt-atheros-vmlinux.lzma

  • rootsq.rom

Please write how flash to work OpenWrt. I understand that it works only serial console and TFTP Server/Client and no work DHCP, Wifi, WebUI, SSH and RootFS is read only - right?

I need flash like in WR542G ???

P.S. I was programming already original firmware using SPI LPT:

The download links (here: Kernel RootFS ) are not working anymore. Can someone post these files again?

wr340v5_linux.bin (there is only wr340v3_linux.bin)
Kernel (custom load address for kernel is 80033800)
RootFS (IP Address is 192.168.1.55 logon with root/ar2317)

I have got problem with wr340g v3. I 've upload wr340v3_linux.bin via website, but I didn't back it to default settings before (router IP was set to 192 168 0 9). Now its working when I connect it to router with dhcp and to pc via lan, but cannot ping and telnet 192 168 1 1, even when trying to get into redboot nothing happen... only "192 168 1 1 HOST UNREACHABLE" response, any solutions?

Hi! Can you help me? I have wr642g with wan port broken. If it's possible i would like to use it as WiFi-repeater (to catch other router's wifi and then connect by cable to my pc). If i'm not mistaken this is it's specs wikidevi.com/wiki/TP-LINK_TL-WR642G_v3.6
Maybe model of flash and ram can be different - i don't know, but in generally like this: atheros ar2318, 2 mb flash and 8 mb ram.
I wanted to try this issue wiki.openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/tl-wr542g
But links are broken, i couldn't download images. Can you help me? Maybe you could make openwrt image exactly for my case and tasks? I would be very grateful

@aleks-krivich
You need to know exactly what is inside your wr642g. Good internal photos would be enough. Depends off there 2 different solutions for you.

The discussion might have continued from here.
