@Brent0n 

 

Hello, thanks for your waiting.

 

I confirmed with our engineer that the Archer VR600 supports TFTP firmware recovery. While unlike Archer C7, the WPS led won't turn on. 

 

You can read the story to get the instruction: https://community.tp-link.com/en/home/stories/detail/582

 

May it help and have a nice day.

Thankyou Marcia,

 

As the TFTP recovery guide you refer to is for a different model, can you please request from your engineer the correct procedure, IP address and firmware file name to use.

 

TFTP INSTRUCTION ARCHER VR600 V2

Eg: Power on while holding down reset button. Release reset button after 10 seconds. 

IP Address: 192.168.0.66/24

Firmware: wdr4300v1_tp_recovery.bin

TFTP will now flash

 

I have previously tried to initiate TFTP and as you say there was no flashing light indicator. But I also ran Wireshark and it didn't pickup any TFTP requests coming from the device either?

 

I will need more precise instruction please.

 

Regards,

Brenton

Below is the download link of the firmware recovery guidance.

For the firmware, you can rename it as ArcherVR600v2_tp_recovery.bin.

 

May it help and have a good day.

Hello all. Did you manage to run the procedure ? I am not picking up any TFTP query on Wireshark trying to run the exact same operation. Thank you in advance.

@MoulDTR No of course it didn't work they don't listen here it's a waste of time. I did the Wireshark too it's not picking up any tftp requests these guys are full of sh!t.

@Zakii no luck with TFTP contrary to the hopeless advice from Tp-Link staff there is NO TFTP mode for this device. They need to provide a downgrade option or they are false advertising services that we paid for and they later removed just because they wanted to include their crap cloud service and didn't have enough memory to fit it all. Furk you Tp-Link

@Brent0n 

Im more alarmed theres is no TFTP recovery. I regard it highly as it assures Ill always manage to unbrick the router. I cant believe how clueless of their own product
