Did you tried on 703n v1.2 or 740n v1.2? v4.0 is for 740. It is supposed to be the same as 703n v1.x. 740n v1.2 is different.

I flashed my 703n v1.5 directly from openwrt using the factory.bin. It works. However, there are a few issues I don't know if I didn't set it correctly or the problem of the firmware.
1. I set it address to one of my local network ip and connected an ethernet cable from my local switch to its lan port. I can connect a computer through wireless. The computer can connect to the web and I can access its web interface. However, I cannot access its web interface through the lan address.
2. Whenever I try to change the wireless security to personal mixed, the computer got disconnected.
3. I can only connect to it using telnet but not ssh. I cannot enable ssh for remote web access either. Is ssh installed?
4. The LED does not work.
If you tested it on 703n also, please share your experience.

Yes you did something wrong Very Happy

You can not use a dd-wrt webflash file unless you already have dd-wrt on the router, you should have used the factory-to-ddwrt file.

The webflash file has an extra dd-wrt header and you can not mtd write such a file, it is intended for the dd-wrt web gui update only.

Does the firmware support 3G USB Modems?

I can't get my Huawei e173s working with OpenWRT Rolling Eyes

Hi there, you sure? ddwrt states that devices with 4MB flash does not fully support 3g WAN connections...

Plus on my install I cannot for the life of me get my E220 modem to work!

If anyone can help it would be great!

I flashed the latest version of dd-wrt for 703n. It appears that the LED still not working. SSH is not available still. I can login using telnet though. Are these others observing?

Yup, same problem here. No SSH. I can't do much without it. I guess we have to wait for that.

Is the WR703N only available as domestic Chinese model?

TP-Link's international web site does not have it in the product list and the only firmware I can find for making a revert-to-factory file is from their domestic web site.

I guess the interest for a revert file is minimal if gui language is Chinese?

U possibly can use the file for TL-MR3020 as it is built of same hardware. Only difference is a hardware switch and a few more leds. http://www.tp-link.com/en/products/details/?model=TL-MR3020
