Model: Archer A5  
Hardware Version: V4
Firmware Version: unknown

I tried flashing OpenWRT C50 v4 on my Archer A5 v4 there was a power outage and now when I turn it on only the power light is on.

I tried recovering it via TFTP when I sniff the packages using wireshark only this shows up:

30997    2.989244    192.168.0.2    192.168.0.66    TFTP    60    Acknowledgement, Block: 15490 

30996    2.989174    192.168.0.66    192.168.0.2    TFTP    46    Data Packet, Block: 15490 (last)        

and then the router reboots

Hello @PalmaBG 

 

As per your description, the router might be faulty or broken when you tried to install the OpenWRT firmware. It is actually not suggested to install third-party software in the Archer A5, which will void the warranty, and we will no longer provide the support for it. Check below:

You may search online to get some help and check if you can bring it back. Good Luck.
