Thanks for the forum help. Succesful flash of a TP-LINK TL-WR740N (TE7WR7NXV5) router from an Ubuntu/Firefox machine.

1) Download DD-WRT firmware for router model from DD-WRT website:

4) Sign on to router with id:admin password:admin

Thank you for your tutorial, I wish to follow it but I have few question before starting.

How to be sure I have international or chinese version of TL-WR740N v5 (I'm in Iran to learn Persian language)?

Which file should be downloaded and used, factory-to-ddwrt.bin or tl-wr740nv5-webflash.bin?
You seems to say to use factory-to-ddwrt.bin, why not the other one?

Then, you are talkin about 30-30-30 reset but I read that we should never do a 30-30-30 TL-WR740N v5 because it's a Atheros board router and 30-30-30 reset is for Broadcom board router.
