Topic: TP-Link WDR7500 V5.0

The content of this topic has been archived on 19 Apr 2018. There are no obvious gaps in this topic, but there may still be some posts missing at the end.

Hi,

I`ve just bought one of those TP-Link routers from China.
On the back of the router, near the serial number it says V 5.0

Is there anyone that has any experience with OpenWRT on this router ?

Thank you,

I've already done that, was just hoping that maybe someone got to play with it.

Anyways, I am planning to open it and have a look at the PCB when I get some time.

Thanks,

I've bought that router on aliexpress and a seller was promising that it's with openwrt firmware. But of course it's with chinese firmware. I opened a dispute at aliexpress and the seller sent me that link http://pan.baidu.com/s/1dm0Ce .
He says that there's no hardware difference between v3, v4 and v5 and difference is only in software.
I have a problem with programming that router, I can't write 'tpl' and get into the console. I did it many times and I'm sure that I do everything right.
Here's full uart output:

Ok ...
So it seems i am unable to access u-boot console ...

The serial connection is ok, as i get to the following login prompt where I am able to type:

starting pid 441, tty '/dev/ttyS0': '/bin/login'

Any ideas ?

The same for me. I'm going to program flash chip on board directy when will receive needed tools

If you are successfull in doing it, please write a post detailing exactly what you did to get it right.

Thanks,

Hello,
I also bought mine at Aliexpress, it is WDR7500 V3, but you wrote that hardware is the same as V5.
It came with English openWRT, but it is one of the first releases of  Barrier Breaker and repositories do not work anymore, so I am trying to flash a new Chaos Calmer firmware with serial connection.

If I digit "tpl" a couple of times during booting I get:

It seems this is the u-boot console. Isn't it?

Do you know which values to use now for RAM memory, bytes to erase, value to start etc?

Hi!

any success with flashing rom?
I have same router V5. I have no serial adapter.
How can i upgrade firmware to openwrt?

angelovAlex wrote:

I've bought that router on aliexpress and a seller was promising that it's with openwrt firmware. But of course it's with chinese firmware. I opened a dispute at aliexpress and the seller sent me that link http://pan.baidu.com/s/1dm0Ce .
He says that there's no hardware difference between v3, v4 and v5 and difference is only in software.
I have a problem with programming that router, I can't write 'tpl' and get into the console. I did it many times and I'm sure that I do everything right.

U-boot password for v5 is 'slp'. Type it instead of 'tpl'. However I could not get any further in updating the firmware. If anyone has any success with v5 please share.

It is identical with archer c7 v2.0

Hi,
any update about V5.0 ?
Thank You in advance !
Piotr

I have TP-LINK TL-WDR6500 V5 and also stuck in SLP Login

Any one know how to login to SLP please tell me

Please press Enter to activate this console.
