Topic: TP-Link-WA830RE V2

The content of this topic has been archived on 20 Apr 2018. There are no obvious gaps in this topic, but there may still be some posts missing at the end.

Hello to all,
I bought the router (extender) TP-Link-WA830RE V2 , someone has already installed openwrt for this router?
Openwrt is compatible with the TP-LINK-WA830RE V2?

I searched on the "Supported Hardware - Router type" site openwrt but it is not present.

Thanks in advance.

Hello, I saw that you're the only one who has posted information about this repeater .. I find myself stuck with repeater. I think something went wrong during recovery from ddwrt to OEM. I have a serial interface, and I have already solder the pins to connect. Could you help on this?

My mail is anto.auteri@gmail.com
