I've looked at the wiki for TL-WR740N
http://dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/TP-LINK_TL-WR740N


and there's no info there on whether v7 is supported, I only know v1,2,3,and 4 is supported.


Some info about my router:

Firmware Version: 3.16.9 Build 160708 Rel.68336n

Hardware Version: WR740N v7 00000000

FCC ID: TE7WR741NXV6

Serial number: 216B873010182



I hope I'm not asking a stupid question Smile

EDIT: The router database only has v1,2,3,4. No v7, does this mean my router isn't supported?

As per the Supported Devices List wiki: http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Supported_Devices only v1 to v5 are supported so I will assume that v7 is not supported.

I refunded that router.

The one I'm currently using is an Asus RT-N12HP Revision B1

Looking through the supported devices list, I see RT-N12 revision B1 but not RT-N12HP, is mine supported?

It doesn't seem obvious as it is not explicitly stated in the supported device list so I must ask.

In addition, may I know what does the hyphen "-" in the revision mean?

For example the RT-N12 has revisions B,C, and a hyphen "-", what does this hyphen mean?


I have screenshots attached for clarity.


Hey thanks for your reply ! Very Happy

It is supported, but it is not so easy to install

After some sniffing with wireshark, i found that router asking for wr740nv6_tp_recovery.bin in recovery mode
only TP-LINK know why they ask for v6 file on V7 HW Smile

But, uboot is modified, so no joy with V6 recovery TFTP image

there is no other option than rs232 console

i tried to:
1. tftpboot 0x80000000 imagefilename.bin
2. erase 0x9f020000 +0x380004
3. cp.b 0x80000000 0x9f020000 0x380004

imagefile was openwrt for 841nd v11
after openwrt is up, you could move to ddwrt very easy

both of them work wery well

hope this will help someone
