    How to recover a bricked Archer d7?

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    Model Archer D7

    Hardware Version : 1.1 (EU)

    Firmware Version : was 170303

    Something got wrong during a firmware update and now my D7 is totally unresponsive. Only the power light is on. I can no longer see the wifi name of the router, wired connection doesn't work anymore and I can't log in the web interface. I have already tried to follow the procedures in this link (https://www.tp-link.com/uk/faq-1482.html), but whitout success. I have also been trying to follow these instructions here (http://forum.tp-link.com/showthread....you-bricked-it) to recover using TFTP, but nothing happens. Does archer d7 can't be recovered using TFTP or the instructions doesn't apply to this model?

    it looks like D7 doesn't support firmware recovery. you need to contact tp-link support and check the warranty

    What about that serial thing? Do you think it supports?

    Have you tried the factory reset option with the reset button in the side of the router?

    If that doesn't work it looks like a paperweight I'm afraid unless there is a shop you can take it to who can do FW level reprogramming, you'll need to compare the cost of a new router to what they will charge you first though, never send good money after bad.
