Have TP-Link Tl-WDR3600 v1.5, and from status page: 3.14.3 Build 151104 Rel.44824n and hardware version WDR3600 v1 00000000

Have tried to flash from a wired connection with fw at http://www.dd-wrt.com/routerdb/de/download/TP-Link/TL-WDR3600/v1.x/factory-to-ddwrt.bin/4129 with no success and get Error 18005 every time.

Have seen some of the posts re locked firmware and feel that I may have this problem as well.

I have tried to revise the 3600 flash with firmware from other TP-Link sites with TL-WDR3600_V1_150518, with hopes of allowing for the dd-wrt flash, but get the same 18005 message.

So I seem to be stuck and would appreciate any help out of this impasse.

TIA for any help!

You have the US version of WDR3600.
Flash latest build 29048 for WDR3600-US from here: ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/betas/2016/02-05-2016-r29048/tplink_tl-wdr3600v1/
Use file factory-to-ddwrt-us.bin

I created an account just to say thanks for this post and ask a question. Is it recommended to stay on this version of DD-WRT (DD-WRT v3.0-r29048 (02/05/16)) or downgrade to what's in the router database for the TPLINK WDR-3600 (DD-WRT v24-sp2 (03/25/13) std (SVN revision 21061))???

Don't Downgrade, upgrade. See my signature for the link.
33986 is running fine on my WDR3600v1. I have the international version, but the only difference is the header.

For the upgrade, make sure to reset to defaults and do not restore your settings from a back-up file, input them all manually. You want to use the tl-wdr3600_us-webflash.bin file to upgrade.
