Mine is v1.8 and I am running v24 presp2 [Beta](Build 14896 and not experiencing any issues.

Beware that I haven't found any files to flash back to the original firmware.

Hi guys.

I've read the entire thread and i still have a few questions ...

I want to buy TP Link TP-WR1043ND router but the only HW models i can find in stores are 1.5 & 1.8

I've read that the 1.4 is the only HW version which works flawlessly.

I need to know which one is better : 1.5 or 1.8

My needs are :
1 pc connected through LAN, 1 NAS connected through LAN, Xtreamer connected through LAN, iPhone 4 via WiFI, Motorola Defy via WiFi, 1 laptop (Dell Latitude D630) via WiFI.
I'm connected to Cable ISP and i need a L2TP dialer.
My internet line is 12Mb/1Mb

Please help ... which version should i buy and what issues i might encounter if i install DD-WRT ?

Hi all,

I just upgraded to DD-WRT v24-sp2 (08/07/10) std - build 14896 and my connection has dropped from the 130mbps it was before on the factory firmware to just 65???

Any ideas or is this a bug with the current firmware?

Should I downgrade to another version?

Many thanks

yeah, the new build 08-10-11-r17461 completely fckd my router...
it starts, one diode after another flashes, then all together, then it restart...
i tried 50/50/50, but no reponse.
will keep it shut down over the night, hopefully it works tomorrow again.
can anyone tell me, how can i possibly repair it?
i thought about flashing with tftp, once it starts, but i've never un-bricked my router.
any help is highly appriciated.
thanks

Yep, I said to myself, "Oh this guy just had some bad luck, or screwed something up, or his router has just gone bad."

So I went and upgraded to 7461, and now my router is completely fuxxored. Does anyone have a guide on how to unbrick a WR-1043ND? I've tried holding the reset for 40 seconds both with power on and power off and neither helped. The router appears to be stuck in some kind of boot loop.

For anyone who hasn't upgraded yet, don't do it! And this version needs to be removed from the downloads, asap. I honestly don't see how this can be fixed. My feeling is that my new router has become an expensive paper weight...

Sorry about your router. I guess I will not be updating, thanks for the heads-up. Hopefully someone could help you out un-bricking it, I wish I could but it's out of my scope.

I'm confused, the router database offers 14896 as the latest version?
Is that the safest one to have based on these issues?

Sorry to hear about your bricked routers guys, I'm terrified of that happening.

Mine's a V1.4

martyp, the newest versions are here
http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/support/other-downloads?path=others%2Feko%2FBrainSlayer-V24-preSP2%2F2011%2F

It seems, that last version of FW may kill the TP-Link 1043ND routers. Take one step older version.

I very sorry guys, who suffer from bricked routers, but you helps others don't do it. Thanks to all of you!

+1 seems to restore it not as easy as breaking.

Thanks B@R, do your N devices run at 65mbps? Was this a bug or have I set something wrong?
