I am wondering if it is worth switching to OpenWRT firmware for my TL-WR841N V8.0 ..Has anyone successfully switched to OpenWRT Attitude Adjustment Release (12.09) ? If so are you happy with the features and stability provided ? I checked for the Gargoyle firmware, and t seems there are still some issues with TL-WR841N release 8.0 ... Therefore I am not considering this alternative firmware for now.

We received new tablet and smart tv but cannot use them due to connection problems. The tv will not connect to the router and the tablet shows strong router strength but will not connect to the internet. I checked for firmware updates and there are 3. Do I simply install the latest firmware or all 3?

The sun sign on the modem has been flashing for a couple of days but I am still getting the internet. Is there anyway I can find out why its doing this? I have tried rebooting but still starts to flash.

i bought the TL-WR841N a week back. the problem is that the internet connection has a web based login( wherin i have to go the "login.hathway.com" and enter a username and password provided by the service provider). i was wondering if there is anything i can do so that the wifi router on its own can log on to my account automatically every time i connect a device to the router. This would save alot of time for me.

I have recently purchased and installed a TL-WR841N wireless router to replace an older system. After following all of the quick install guide and the like I got it set up and working correctly both wired and wireless. However one laptop in the household, an Acer Aspire 5315 running Windows Vista 32bit, does not connect. Using an ethernet cable works fine but the wireless signal is seen and appears to connect but does not find the internet and states Local Only Access.When connected wirelessly I also cannot ping the device but when connected with a cable I can and get a good return.The firmware is up to date on the router and the latop is full up to date with drivers and windows updates.

I recently encountered a problem with my router. It's configuration page is not accessible quickly. When I opened it ( by typing 192.168.1.1 in my browser) it took ages to open and even when it did, the page lacked a lot of features i.e., it did not load properly. Then on a suggestion by a friend, I downloaded the latest correct version (I have an IQ above 60) for my router but the problem persisted. And it is only on my PC. When I access it from some other PC, it opens as it should. My router is only 6 months old.

recently i bought wireless router TL-WR841N and there hasn't been a day or should i say few hours without restarting/turning on-off.I have cable(no modems,etc)Longest time it has ran without restarting was around 20hours.The problem is it RANDOMLY looses connection like this , but it's not the only problem , mostly when i leave computer and go to sleep or other business i leave router turner ON (no else have access to it and no one touches it), when i come back it just does not connect to internet, it shows that everything is fine , but i have no access to internet.This happens to all connected computers.I have dynamic ip I have russian version of windows xp sp3 , but i think everything is pretty understandable here. connection timed out/request timed out

FYI the problem is not in my computers(i tried setting up wireless networks from 2 different pc's) and i'm pretty sure it's not ISP's fault too(everything works fine through cable) , because this never happens with other wireless networks, etc.

I bought a TL-WR841N to use instead of our Virgin Super-hub which dropped the wifi regularly. It took me a while but I stumbled with the set up and got it working.Super-hub (in modem mode) - cable - TL-WR841N - 2 x cables running to 2 switches for (TV, Sky+, WII) and (PC, X-Box). Everything is spot on apart from the other half's Iphone and Ipad. Neither of them can get on the web in the bedroom. Both apples will join the network, but none will be able to get onto the web. The Wifi bars are on display on both products but they just keep spinning and searching to get on the web. I bought a Huawei repeater plug hoping that would work, but it just slows down everything else that can get on the network.Remembering that this happens only in one room, is there something that I can alter that would let these 2 apples access the web besides walking out on the landing every time she needs to update a web page ?

I get this new router TL-WR841N from amazon.com, I get no signal/internet connection on my computer when I install/connect the router using the installation min CD (same procedure at listed here: url...The DSL connection is good, since I get internet connection when I connect my modem directly (without the router) to my computer. My modem is the old Siemens SpeedStream 4100 with IP Address of 192.168.0.1 from ATT.Is my router deficit ?
Apparently there is a vulnerability issue which was just discovered with TP-LINK TL-WR841N wireless router running firmware version: 3.13.9 Build 120201 Rel.54965n and below,as described here: [URL] and here: [URL] there latest firmware 3.13.27 Build 121101 Rel.38183n already addressing this issue or is there any other planned correction expected to address this vulnerability issue ?

I have had my WR841N for about a year, supplied to me by my WISP. I like the router in terms of facilities but it seems to have one really annoying problem.
The router becomes inaccessible via the webpage after a random period of several days. I have at times associated the issue with occasional loss of radio broadband service but it is not always so. To try and further localise the problem I set the router up to send emails of the log to me every two hours from 17/04/2013 but today for the second time the emails stopped arriving after the 02:29 message and the router is inaccessible again. The router previously locked up with loss of broadband service on 26/04/2013 sometime after emailing a log at 02:41 on that day but had been running without issue from a cold restart at 12:25 as soon as I noticed loss of service. Today I have not lost broadband service and so even though I am no longer receiving an emailed log or able to access the router via its webpage I am leaving well alone for the present. Some months ago when I originally noticed the web access issue I downloaded and installed the latest firmware TL-WR841N-v7-120201 and I note that there have been no further firmware releases for the v7 model.
My broadband service is delivered via radio link from a local transmitter mast and is reliable with typical download speed of 20-30Mbps and 30-40Mbps upload, seldom if ever affected by weather so I now feel the problem is inherent in the router rather then being the result of some issue affecting broadband service which has been solid since 26/04/2013
Without the log I have no way of knowing what was happening when the router became inaccessible but I attach the last 24 hours of received log below.

The TP-Link managers surely have read the constant complaints about the performance of the WR1043ND, are innumerable and of all kinds, but especially, due to instability.There are two beta versions, but they are very unstable.I beg, TP-Link, keep us informed on the development of the new firmware.When I bought this router, I was hoping a correct performance.

I'm having a problem with my TL-WR1043ND becoming non-responsive after a few days of uptime.This is actually my second 1043. I bought it because my first one (hardware version 1.4) has been rock solid -- I've not had to reboot it for over 2 years. (I don't have its firmware version handy at the moment, but I recall it's from 2010.)I needed this new router for a second location, but it has not been functioning correctly. It is hardware version 1.10 and shipped with the latest firmware, 120405. is it safe to downgrade the 1.10's firmware to the one that's running on the 1.4? Or is the hardware sufficiently different (e.g. different bootloaders)
Region : UnitedKingdom Model : TL-WR1042ND Hardware Version : V1 Firmware Version : 3-14-4 to 3-15-4 ISP : Primus Saver
I had it all working fine, then I wanted to upgrade the firmware. The original firmware was 3-14-4. I downloaded and applied the 3-15-4 firmware. Now when it powers on the power light is on all the time. Immediately the sys, 4, 3, 2, 1, Internet, usb and wps lights flash once. Then about 5 seconds later the 4, 3, 2, 1 & Internet lights flash once, then a second later the cycle starts again. When I connect it to the PC it starts to make a connection on the NIC, but then the router resets. Model: TL-WR1042ND, Ver 1.3 . Is there a way to reset the firmware or get it working again?

Is it possible to extend the functionality of USB in future firmware for data transfer? More detail about the problem [URL]can at least in beta partially implemented increase data transfer USB?I bought this router, and as all users lose .... With the Internet, download files faster than with external screw via USB.

How to successfully get VPN passthrough working with the W8960N?
I have the W8960N providing internet to local device. I want to setup a second router, TP-Link 1043ND with WW-DRT and PPTP set up to provide a separate access point for PPTP tunnelling to VPN servers outside of the UK. HideMyAss are providing VPN servers I wish to connect to.
I have followed instruction to set up both routers but would like to know if I am missing something. First router 192.168.1.1 is basically untouched but with ports under NAT added: ports 1723 and 47 for my second router at local IP 192.168.1.111 Second router is set up according to [URL].
I know VPN work via just my first router. I can tunnel through using an Android tablet and connect to any HMA VPN server without changing anything on the 8960N.
(1) E3000 as root router - IP: 192.168.1.1 - DHCP Server: Enabled - Start IP Add: 192.168.1.100 (2) TL-WR841N as bridge - IP:192.168.1.2 - DHCP Server: Disabled - WDS Enabled
The problem:I bridged (2) Wirelessly to (1).when i'm connected to (1) there seem to be no problem at all, the internet is working just fine and i can even ping & connect (2), i guess that means the bridging is working.But when im connected to (2), I get a 'limited connection' & I can't connect the internet. I also can't ping & connect to (2).The IP assigned for the computer that is connected to (2) Wirelessly is not matching the DHCP confg. (169.254.228.216).I have reason to belive that the problem is somehow from a wrong configuration with the LinkSys router but i dont know what it could be. i started from scratch, reseting the two routers over and over again while trying different configurations but with no luck.
I've spent parts of the past five days buying and exchanging several WAP4410N units because I was not able to achieve anything close to a 300Mbps data rate. I also tried various wireless-n network cards which were known to be configured correctly for 300Mbps speeds with no luck.
The highest speed I was able to achieve was 130Mbps, which is an indication that channel bonding is not in effect.
Then I came across another post in the forums:
WAP4410N does not exceed 130Mbps in N mode at close range.
where the OP mentions recently upgrading to firmware 188.8.131.52, though not treating that as the cause of his problems.
On a lark, I tried downgrading to both firmware 184.108.40.206 and firmware 220.127.116.11, and to my surprise, I was able to achieve the full 300Mbps data rate with both firmware versions.
When I reverted back to 18.104.22.168, I was not able to achieve the full 300Mbps data rate.
So, right now, I downgraded to firmware 22.214.171.124 so I can get the higher data rate, though there are other quirks to deal with.
Furthermore, when I do a web search of reviews, I can see that the inability to achieve the 300Mbps data rate is a huge source of complaints.
