But I have another question- is this working on Windows 7?
I bought the adapter from eBay, put it into USB and Windows downloaded and installed the driver on its own. But I have read some kind of problems with W7 an TFTP.


Just use Windows 7's own TFTP client, which you enable in Programs --> Turn on/off windows features.
I have been running Windows 7 x64 for a long time, never had a problem with TFTP.
Do know when you like to debrick using a TFTP Server, youneed something like TFTPD32 server and unblock it in local Windows Firewall to allow incoming connections.

Hi,

I'm in a "I bricked my router club" too. I managed to bricked it after flashing from openwrt- tplink firmware through web interface. Now I'm looking for solution for unbricking my router and for this purpose I read all the posts.

I understood that i must have usb-serial to ttl converter but I'm not sure about my choice. I found in eblay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/USB-2-0-UART-TTL-6PIN-Module-Serial-Converter-CP2102-/150607115182?pt=UK_Computing_CablesConnectors_RL&hash=item2310e233ae. My question is if this converter is the right one and should I use something else to complete the procedure.

Thanks!

Kind regards,
Joro

Yep, it's pretty much the same one I got, same chipset same functionality.
You only need the GND, TX and RX pins from the TTL adapter to hook up to the router.

I still a few USB-TTL adapters on stock in The Netherlands. If interested, contact me for prizing and shipping.

1. Download modified original firmware that has first 0x20200 cut off, or use firmware attached below.

Where's this file, please?
Googling won't help.

Hey Guys!

I´ve got a really weird problem with flashing over serial.

I did everything like the How-To says, but i just get cryptic symbols with putty. I also got an TTL adapter, but it wont work, and yes, i double and triple checked the baud-rate.

I´m really getting crazy about this. I want my router back Sad


Thank you in advance...

The "also" was related to the executing of the how-to.

TTL-adapter works if it is a correct one and it is correctly connected.
Which TTL-adapter did you buy?

Oh that tells me exactly what's wrong, those given by friends are bad ones and never works. Rolling Eyes
I guess its not much more to do than consider it an eternal brick.

Well, i don´t hope so. Is there any reseller who´s residence is in germany? I´ll just buy another one.

I just saw, that the symbols are always the same. Due to this i guess, it´s really the bootloader which is showing up, but the Interface can´t connect well. Or is there anybody who´d revive my 1043 for a little fee if i send it to him/her?

Best wishes

Why don't you connect tx to rx of the TTL serial adapter you have and verify with PuTTY?
