I'm a newbie who owns a TP-WR740N v6 but I went to download the firmware for v5 below and tried to install the firmware.

https://download1.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/downloads/betas/2018/06-01-2018-r36079/tplink_tl-wr740nv5/
factory-to-ddwrt.bin 01-Jun-2018 12:29 3932160
tl-wr740nv5-webflash.bin 01-Jun-2018 12:29 3932188

I got the Error code: 18005
Upgrade unsuccessfully because the version of the upgraded file was incorrect. Please check the file name.

Is this due to the mismatch version number? Anyway i can overcome this issue cos I can't find a v6 build for my router.

TP-WR740N is unknown to wikidevi

Don't presume a V5 and V6 is equal. It can be different router with different chip-sets.

Most likely the fw will not load because board id differs.
