I have the same issue with restarting. Heroeda, did you or anyone else find a fix?
My problem fix Solved.
1).open board and soldering TP18 to TP38 and TP28 to TP48 should be connected.
2).Connect usb to TTL GND,Tx and Rx pins. (Tx from schematic goes to Tx pin of router, Rx from schematic to Rx of router
3).set IP pc 192.168.1.100
4).Install tftpgui anda copas firmware to tftproot rename to code.bin
5).run tftpgui (don't any set up)start only
6) set usb to TTL:
Bits per second: 115200
Data bits: 8
Parity: none
Stop bits: 1
Flow control: none
7). Open PuTTY via serial see set no.6 COMx x see device manager.
8).Once you click "Open", then you should see the router's console.While the router is connected to your computer using the usb-serial cable we just created, then power the device off, then on again, while device boots, (within 1-2 seconds) you need to be on the putty window typing the word "tpl". YOU MUST BE VERY FAST!! If you successfully log in
9). Write comand:
Hornet> erase 0x9f020000 +0x3c0000
Hornet> tftpboot 0x81000000 code.bin
Hornet> cp.b 0x81000000 0x9f020000 0x3c0000
Hornet> bootm 0x9f020000
10).wait ROUTER reboot and 3 led indikator on debrick Solved

Hello experts!
i have a TP-Link WDR4300 wireless router. after a bad firmware flash the router is now completely bricked. i have tried following an awesome youtube video in order to unbrick it make by richard Lloyd
(youtube url + /watch?v=1hWT35w6sVI&list=WL&index=89&t=6s)
in my case, after i turn on the router and release the reset button, i see the router trying to download the recovery file, i see a progress bar comng up for 1-2 seconds...but thats it...nothing happens!
does any know what am i missing?
is there a specific firmware version i need to perform this with?

I'm using WR841N V13. I'm using LEDE fw. I use tftp to restore to stock firmware but not work.
This is Log Viewer:
"Connection received from 192.168.0.2 on port 1237 [24/11 15:52:41.044]
Read request for file . Mode octet [24/11 15:52:41.045]
File : error 2 in system call CreateFile The system cannot find the file specified. [24/11 15:52:41.045]"

How to solve this problem, bros? Does TFTP support 841N V13?

TFTP can't upgrade this model, it will make the device crash. Maybe you can contact your seller or retailer to ask for help now...

Solved - Thanks @Guazi and @Fitz

I signed up to thank @Guazi and @Fitz,


In my case it only worked with:


1 - TFTPF64.460
2 - Straight network cable (can not be crossover)
3 - Firmware of the link posted by @Fit

First of all configure your network card with fixed ip 192.168.0.66 and masks 255.255.255.0 the others (gatway and dns servers in white)

Hello. I have an Archer C7 v4 that when you push the power button, the front leds flash instantly on then off and stay very very dim. It broadcasts no wireless signal and if you plug into ethernet, it doesnt get recognized but, if you plug from another routers ethernet to its(archer c7) WAN port, then attach cord to its(archer c7) ethernet to your computer, it connects you to the other router just like it(Archer c7) isnt even there. So..... ???? How do i fix this? All help will be extremely appreciated. Also reset button and wps button doesnt function for tftp access.
