I successfully install OpenWrt earlier on my TL-WR841ND 7.2 by installing the factory to OpenWrt firmware from the trunk first and then the SysUpgrade firmware, also in the trunk.
My issue began when I tried to install the Gargoyle WebUI by installing the gargoyle_1.5.6-ar71xx-tl-wr841nd-v5-squashfs-factory.bin firmware from the Gargoyle site. To do that I followed the directions I found here: http://www.gargoyle-router.com/phpbb/vi … =10#p10193 and after giving the "mtd -r write /tmp/fw.bin firmware" command I lost access to the router. It wrote the firmware reset and then I couldnt connect to it anymore.
I was however able to get into the failsafe by following the instruction in the wiki (pressing the QSS button after turning it on). I tried the instructions under the failsafe wiki aswell. I tried mount_root,firstboot and mtd -r erase rootfs_data. After issuing those commands and rebooting I still was not able to ssh or telnet to the router under normal conditions. I can only telnet under failsafe.
Under failsafe I also cant seem to connect the router to the internet. I tried using both wget and opkg to download a firmware but the router could not get a connection.
Is there a way for me to load a firmware on the router through the failsafe mode to revert to openwrt or even the stock firmware? I cant scp to the router and only my Windows 7 laptop seems to be able to connect to it under failsafe. Both my debian PC's cant connect.
