The TP-Link Archer C7 v2 is the closest board I can find that has full LED support using ath10k right now. It does have a QCA chip, bit 9880 not 9980, and the same switch. Maybe it will provide some help and be similar however?

https://dev.openwrt.org/browser/trunk/t … rcher-c7.c

Any help on the MACs would be great. I'm sure the MAC's are stored in the mtd/flash somewhere, it's just working out where. Does the stock firmware provide any mappings to it? Happy to test if you get the time to look.

Thanks

I'd be willing to bet it would be the default-mac partition (offset 0x1ef0000, size 0x00200 -- 512 bytes). Someone with shell access would have to dump that partition and compare to their actual MAC address.

Hi guys. I'd like to reinstall the original tp-link firmware for the moment because of some instabilities. Any hint of how best to do this?

You have to do it via the TFTP method of recovery, which is documented in one of the first few pages of the thread.

Thank you. I've never done this before. Is there a chance to completely fuck something up?

From what I could gather, I just do this:

- Run "tftp 192.168.0.66" in a terminal, and then what? What's the syntax to include the .bin file?
- Then just reboot the router while holding the reset button, wait a bit and that's it?

Do I need a certain ip on my pc or is running tftp with a certain ip address enough?

Mess i up? most likely not. Unless you somehow erase the whole flash (which shouldn't really be possible without manually typing some command).

For TFTP, you have to setup a tftp server on your PC and connect via ethernet. You set your computer IP to that required address, and have the properly named bin file in whatever directory you launched the server in. Then when the router boots in the recovery mode, it will look for a server at that address with the file name and download the file. TFTP recovery is the router going out and looking for the file, not the computer looking for the router. Note, I haven't done it for this router, but for an older on, so follow the directions given in this thread and the post linked.

How to extract from that partition?

I have:

root@00-34-56-78-CB-CB:~# cat /proc/mtd

mtd13: 01730000 00010000 "rootfs_data"

Could you provide the correct command to check if the mac is in the default-mac partition as I'm not sure. I will run the command from the SSH console.

Cheers

James

Part of the problem is that not all of the partitions (including the default-mac one) is included in those auto-detected by the qcom-smem mechanism.
So it requires either replacing the auto-detection in the device tree with the full manually specified list, or just reading from the raw flash offset (anyone know how to do that?)

well, if we have dd as a command line, it should be easy, but if it's not even mounted, then I don't really know. It doesn't seem to be mounting a lot of the partitions and mounts some as the wrong name.

Looking back at the log you made from the stock one, it only even mounts the ART and root_fs.

Hi all, no way to flash any version repository Bendavid / Arokh in my Archer C2600, or by TFTPD server (in this case TFTPD32 on Win7 / Win8.1) or by sysupgrade by SSH. Moreover, it is not possible to install any factory firmware version starting stock for WebUI.

By TFTPD I see that the server does reach shooting (.bin) but does not seem to charge at all, so it restarts but even after waiting for hours (not exaggerating) connectivity 192.168.1.1 no light nor the LEDS.

For SSH I get this:

root@Archer C2600:/tmp# sysupgrade -n -F openwrt-ipq806x-C2600-squashfs-factory.bin

Any suggestions?

If the device is running stock TP-Link firmware then the 'openwrt-ipq806x-C2600-squashfs-factory.bin' file should work from the web interface under "Advanced > Upgrade Firmware" menu. What happens if you try?

If you are trying to perform the sysupgrade with the 'factory' image on a device that already have OpenWrt, that won't work as you need to use the 'sysupgrade' image file 'openwrt-ipq806x-C2600-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin' instead...

Load or load seems 'openwrt-ipq806x-C2600-squashfs-factory.bin' file, then restart and then there is no connectivity to 192.168.1.1 and the lights do not come on for a long time to wait.

So after only allows me back to stock firmware by TFTPD method.

It can be some hardware failure?
What logs from SSH can give me a hint?

Thanks.

I was wondering if anybody has been able to get the following features to work: NETMAP and getting VPN connections to connect to devices on the local network. I had both of these things working on my previous router, but haven't had any luck yet with the C2600 that I received for Christmas.

When I attempted to install the package for NETMAP (iptables-mod-nat-extra) it gave an error about kernel dependency (wants 3.18.23). I can install it using okpg install --force-depends, but obviously there is some incompatibility that keeps it from working, but I was wondering if anybody else had gotten it to work somehow, or have a way to get a compatible package.

The second problem I've been having is that I also haven't been able to connect to computers on the LAN from a VPN connection, which I was previously able to do with custom iptables rules on my old router also using OpenWRT. Does anybody happen to have a setup example where this is working for them? This is my openvpn config:

config openvpn 'myvpn'
    option enabled '1'
    option dev 'tun'
    option port '1194'
    option proto 'udp'
    option log '/tmp/openvpn.log'
    option verb '3'
    option ca '/etc/openvpn/ca.crt'
    option cert '/etc/openvpn/my-server.crt'
    option key '/etc/openvpn/my-server.key'
    option server '10.8.0.0 255.255.255.0'
    option dh '/etc/openvpn/dh2048.pem'
    option topology 'subnet'
    option client_to_client '1'
    list 'push' '"redirect-gateway def1"'
    list 'push' '"route 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0"'

The only difference is that I used to be able to use the command "option push route" instead of list push route but openvpn won't start on this router with the old command. I am also using the following iptables commands:

# Allow traffic initiated from VPN to access LAN
iptables -I FORWARD -i vpn0 -o br-lan -s 10.8.0.0/24 -d 192.168.1.0/24 -m conntrack --ctstate NEW -j ACCEPT

# Allow traffic initiated from VPN to access "the world"
iptables -I FORWARD -i tun0 -o eth0 -s 10.8.0.0/24 -m conntrack --ctstate NEW -j ACCEPT

# Allow established traffic to pass back and forth
iptables -I FORWARD -m conntrack --ctstate RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT

# Masquerade traffic from VPN to "the world" -- done in the nat table
iptables -t nat -I POSTROUTING -o eth0 -s 10.8.0.0/24 -j MASQUERADE

Anybody have any ideas? Thanks!

It looks like some sort of adblocker is enabled in the firmware, and it is preventing the use of some TV networks' sites.

Is there a way to access and disable this blocker? I already have my own adblock selectively enabled in the browser.

Update: Found it /etc/config/adblock, and disabled

Hi, I can't say if I have the same ssh output as you since I have not enabled ssh. However, I have the exact same end result, no lights, no ping, nothing. Nothing on the ethernet side, nothing on the wifi side either.

I tried all the factory.bin from here: http://luci.subsignal.org/~trondah/c2600/ without any success.

I tried upgrading using the web UI and also using the tftpd method.

Once the router gets the firmware and reboots: no lights, no activity, router doesn't ping or show any sign of activity. I waited literally half a day to see if anything would come up, but nothing. I also tried rebooting it multiple times (like about 20 or so) and still no light, no activity.

I always end up reverting to the stock c2600 firmware from TP-Link to get it back under control (using the tftpd method, which works every time perfectly).

Btw, I'm not sure about your router but mine says version 1.1 under it. I don't know if that could explain it or not.

Btw, I'm trying to install OpenWRT over TP's latest firmware: 1.1.2 Build 20150924 Rel. 66045
Maybe the upgrade only works from the very original firmware ? I can't test, it is nowhere to be found it seems.

The hardware shows up as: "Archer C2600 v1.0" in the UI, even though the router shows 1.1 under it.

This router is really a great piece of hardware but I find the stock firmware quite limited unfortunately...

Hope this helps and thanks everyone for all the work you did so far to get this working for all of us.

It seems like you got a newer hardwareversion. Mine says 1.0. This could be the source of the problem. We need to find out what changed...

Agreed that the 1.1 vs 1.0 hardware version is the likely cause of the issue.  On the other hand it's strange that apparently the same tp-link firmware works on both.

Exact same conditions.

Back to Amazon, I'm afraid...

Thanks!
