ErrorCode:18005 trying to load OpenWRT on TL MR3040

Reported by: edndc@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: ErrorCode, 18005 Cc:


Got an ErrorCode 18005 - "Upgrade unsuccessfully because the version of the upgraded file was incorrect. Please check the file name" when attempting to install OpenWRT onto a TP-Link MR4030 Version 2.1 with file: openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-mr3040-v1-squashfs-factory.bin. This version stated it worked with Version 2.1.

Attempts installing other versions resulted in the same ErrorCode. Was successful in reinstalling the factory firmware from TP-LINK.

Is there something I'm doing wrong? This is my first time flashing a device.

Yes. Firmware is for v1, not v2!

Okay. Operator error. I was trying to install V1 on V2 HW.

Now that I've successfully flashed the unit, I'm simply having a problem trying to access OpenWRT on the TL-MR4030 using a Macintosh laptop. Any suggestions?
