Any update on USB (3G and/or mass storage) support?


Brainslayer added MR3420 for official support today so I think there will be a test build here in a day or two.

MR3220 is in the pipeline for dd-wrt support, I will do a similar patch of a WR741 build (without USB) in a few days time and put it in a MR3220 thread.

Huawei E398 and usb_modswitch is not working on the actual BS-Version for the MR3420. See the open ticket.

The modswitch hangs with 2 processes in the process-list and switching is not really working. usbserial is detecting nothing with this stick.

Waiting for MR3220 !
I'm using OpenWRT on the MR-3220, but do not know how to do QoS.
In the dd-wrt is easier!
Can I put the firmware of BS 3420 in 3220?

This is a correction on sysupgrade 3849 Smile
The file you download is 3849


3. Using telnet 192.168.1.1:
Code:
cd /tmp/
wget http://www.dd-wrt.com/routerdb/de/download/TP-Link/WR841ND/7.0/factory-to-ddwrt.bin/3849
sysupgrade 3849

4. Success! Now we configure dd-wrt through webGUI

Running DD-WRT v24-sp2 (11/21/10) std (SVN revision 15778) on your TP-LINK MR3420 v1.2

Please note that I successfully installed and am currently running dd-wrt on my TP-LINK MR3420 v1.2, However, I take no responsibility if you manage to brick your router.

Background:
The TP-LINK MR3420 v1.0-v1.2 has essentially the same hardware as TP-LINK WR841ND v7.2 which has a dd-wrt available for download

You will need:
OpenWRT for MR3420: http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/tl-mr3420
OpenWRT for WR841ND: http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/tl-wr841nd
DD-WRT for WR841ND 7.0 (I used factory-to-ddwrt.bin): http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/support/router-database

Installation:
1. Install OpenWRT MR3420 through regular webGUI
2. Using telnet 192.168.1.1:
Code:
cd /tmp/
wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/ar71xx/openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-wr841nd-v7-squashfs-factory.bin
sysupgrade openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-wr841nd-v7-squashfs-factory.bin

3. Using telnet 192.168.1.1:
Code:
cd /tmp/
wget http://www.dd-wrt.com/routerdb/de/download/TP-Link/WR841ND/7.0/factory-to-ddwrt.bin/3849
sysupgrade factory-to-ddwrt.bin

4. Success! Now we configure dd-wrt through webGUI

Configuration:
Read through and configure according to http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Atheros/ath_wireless_settings#Introduction

Wireless Mode
Recommended Setting: AP

Wireless Network Mode
Recommended Setting: NG-Mixed

Channel Width
Recommended Setting: Turbo (40 MHz)

Wireless Channel
Recommended Setting: 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10*

Advanced Settings
Regulatory Domain
Recommended Setting: Your Country

TX Power
Recommended Setting: Highest dBm your radios/regulatory domain support

Antenna Gain
Recommended Setting: dBi value of the antenna(s) used on the router (Anyone know?)

Protection Mode
Recommended Setting: RTS/CTS

RTS Threshold
Recommended Setting: Enable

Short/Long Preamble
Recommended Setting: Enable

TX & RX Antenna Chains
Recommended Setting: Seems like 1+3 or 1+2+3 works best

Issues:
USB not working
Clients seem capped at 130mbs TX/RX
Reverting to official TP-LINK MR3420 firmware not tested

Hi guys,
I'm currently using openwrt firmware for TL-MR3420.
I would like to migrate to change to ddwrt, and finally it seems to be possible.
I also use the router as a NAS, mounting some external disks connected to an USB hub.
I need NTFS filesystem (rw), SMB, NFS, FTP as server protocols.
I've seen the USB is not yet supported but I've not understood if the comment was just for 3G modem or the port is still disabled for any use on DDWRT (last build
from here ftp://dd-wrt.com/others/eko/BrainSlayer-V24-preSP2/2012/07-20-12-r19519/tplink_tl-mr3420/)
Thank you in advance.

Thank you in advance.


Continue to use OpenWRT, there will not be external storage filesystem support in dd-wrt for any Atheros based router with only 4MB flash.
The MR3420 is a 3G router and does not have the needed hardware to become a poor-mans-NAS.
