Hello,

i've dug out my old router and did a big mistake. I updated the Firmware. Ran into some problems with settings and wanted to go down again. Turns out with build 40559 you are not able to downgrade.

I've seen there was such a problem with a previous build and it should been fixed but it's not Crying or Very sad

Can anyone guide me trough the steps of being able to downgrade from my curren build version?

My hardware:

TP-Link WR941N(D) v2.2

current fw: build 40559

desired fw: build 37442

Thanks in advance.

Which build are you trying to flash? Makes sure the size of the file is smaller than your flash chip size.
It often happens that the builds are too big.

Latest build r40559, which is on the device right now, is the exact same size. Not sure what I'm doing wrong.
