I have buyed same version 4, which is not working good (loose connection to ISP provider, DHCP not working after restarting router). Maybe firmware it's the problem ? I have upgraded to latest version found on TP-LINK site. What can i do ?
You have to wait for DD-WRT to get ready for that device. I will arrange it so that a piece is mailed to them for donation in the first days of the new year.
by the way hardwaredonation@dd-wrt is not responding
Thx for the info @checho.
Having in mind that my Asus will end up in service tomorrow and I don't know when it will come back, I decided to search for the TP-Link TL-WR740/741N.
With your help I choosed the V4 hardware version that has the Atheros AR-9331 chip. I can confirm that it is one hell of a router. On a 50M connection I get 5.6 Megabytes download speed on wireless. Haven't tested it on 100M but I suppose it can go higher with transfer speeds.
Also, it was quite cheap[23 euros]. In stores, it is actually cheaper than the Asus with the Ralink, and it works better.
Until DD-WRT comes out, I recommend buying it.
P.S. If possible go to a store where you can see and check the box up for sale. From where I bought it, there were v4.2 mixed with v2.5.
23 euro for that piece of HW... how could it be so expensive, I am taking it for an end-price of EUR 15, and the dealer is making profit out of it. Dealer price if I take hundreds is about EUR 12,- in my place.
I've just received my wr740n from amazon.de (ordered on 29th of December). And it was version 2.5. Therefore it is not guaranteed that you will get version 4.
Yep, my #3 (first 2 v4.2) èdit: all three via same amazon.de reseller] is also v2.5. Strange! This is not replacing the initiative, but I've had no problems running OpenWRT on the v4.2 hardware. Not used a lot, but only broken feature was lack of LAN port indicator lights.
