A new TL-WA901ND v2.3
Installed 01-24-2013-r20548 › tplink_tl-wa901ndv2
No connection anymore
Found this thread
Followed the instructions with the MAC (used the MAC written on the bottom of the device)
No success, no chance to connect.
Now only a serial connection can help?
As I've bought two devices, is there any definitly working version?
and ... sorry, I'm a little bit disappointed.
I don't understand, how such an extremly buggy FW can be offered whithout any notes. I know, this is beta. I know an accept installing beta is my own risk. And maybe I had to take a look here before. This was my fault.
But hey, as written here, the problem ist not very new. Is it too much to ask for a little note, or readme.txt at the downloads, when such a heavy problem exists?
OK, configured both APs with DD-WRT. Working fine.
But pity, can't get 300 Mbps connection, only 130 Mbps. At home, I use a TL-WR1043ND with DD-WRT, and get full 300 with my Thinkpad (Centrino Advanced-N 6200 AGN).
But OK, fast enough and faster as before. And the main reason, we bought the APs and wan't to use them with DD-WRT is, to set up a separted guest WLAN, only with internet access, here in our company.
This will be the next step.
Have given this router, don't know what version has been flashed but it shows Wifi SSID: OpenWrt
Unable to ping from 192.168.1.1
Have followed your instructions but no response to ping.
Do I have to manually assign IP address,Gateway and DNS to the card or leave to DHCP (which is assigning me a strange random ip)?
What am I doing wrong?

I flashed WA901NDV2 with 01-24-2013-r20548, fixed MAC with netsh and connected wireless to router (SSID dd-wrt).
So far so good. The webgui started on first attempt, I changed password and did some minor changes (telnet allowed). After second save I lost connection and was not able reconnect anymore. I did reset, cold start, 30/30/30 reset, no success.
OK, after few hours I tried once more and I was connected suddenly - hurray - once more changed password, did minor change in setup and saved it.
Since this moment no connection anymore. Router is alive, arp -a shows the router wireless/wired, I can connect to router wirelessly and with wire, status shows the communication, ping is not succesfull.
Tried all combination for recovery from wiki and forum, nothing.
Many thanks in advance for any hint

As I mentioned above, I fixed MAC address: the original (and wrong address) was 00-25-86-D9....... Address was corrected to 74-EA-3A-EB.... But other computers (XP, Android) are showing router MAC as 2A-BF-F2.......
I am confused, may be this is the problem, I am not expert on networking. Any ideas?
