Firmware Version : factory defoult from 03/2013

Hello

I am really frustrated because just got the router and cannot perform the updates, i tried every firmware that is available on the official website and still nothing: Everything seems ok, the browser informs that the update was successful, that the router will reboot, and after all this nonsense the firmware version is the same as it was. I do all the steps necessary, i use IE as advised, connect with LAN cable,
nothing!

I spent 3 hours trying to install ANY update but failed, and I don't know why

Someone here can give me some hints?

After upgrade the latest firmware (TL-WDR4300_v1_140916), did you reset it to facotry defaults? Disable anti-virus software if there is. Try a different PC.

DD-WRT? So you upgraded a third-party firmware before, right? What a pity...

No I did't, I got the router as it was, just 2 days ago. We were using it in our company network. If it's a third party router is there any way to flash the original firmware?

You are great guys, Mavis, thanks a lot. I would never imagine that there is third party firmware installed. I was wondering that something is wrong because the layout was completely different from the one I saw in the manual. I got the tool from DD-WRT to bring back the original one and was finally able to update router as it should be. Problem SOLVED!!!!
