Longstory short, I bricked my TP-Link WR941ND V5, witch is running as a WR841ND V8.
It was running Gargoyle 1.10.0 with minor stability issues, so I decided to "improve" it by downgrading to 1.6.2 WR841ND V8 sysupgrade image, and got a brick.
Normal bricked status is only PWR led on.
I can enter recovery mode with WPS/reset + Power On. In this cenario, PWR + WPS leds are on, but TFTP won't work.
When in recovery mode, Wireshark (network sniffer) tells me the router asks for something:
Code: Select all
No. Time Source Destination Protocol Length Info
3 0.101446 ba:be:fa:ce:08:41 Broadcast ARP 60 Who has 192.168.0.66? Tell 192.168.0.86
But there are no TFTP requests for a recovery file.
I could try and WinSCP it, but I have no idea if it would help or make it worst. I'd also need some instructions, as I have limited networking skills.
Any help will be very much appreciated!
