I have TP-LINK 1043 ND router and have OpenWRT firmware on it.
After some configuration actions I’ve broken IPv4 configuration on it and my Router stopped giving IPv4 addresses by DHCP to the network clients.
To make OpenWRT hard reset (nor factory reset) you have to pass 4 easy steps:
- Power the router up;
- After powering up track the SYS light when it starts to blink, when it does press and hold the QSS button till SYS lights starts to blink faster – router goes to recovery mode;
- Telnet to the router on 192.168.1.1 – no password needed (if your computer doesn’t gets IP address from DHCP assign it manually for i.e. 192.168.1.200 with netmask of 255.255.255.0);
- In telnet terminal type `mtd -r erase rootfs_data` to reset OpenWRT to it’s defaults.
That’s all, folks!
mtd -r erase rootfs_data
