Hardware is similar TP-Link TL-MR3040 v1, but intended for PRC.
A portable router with an onboard 2000mAh rechargeable_battery. It provides 150MBit/s 802.11bgn wireless connectivity, one Fast Ethernet port as well as two USB ports (of which one only offers power but no data connection).
Note: Many of these routers are marketed as a “3G travel router” but none actually include a 3G modem - the marketing term rather means that the OEM firmware supports a certain range of USB 3G/4G modems because it contains the drivers! Ignore that, because with OpenWrt ANY router with USB supports 3G hardware…
Althought M301 and MR3040 seem similar on the outside, there are differences:
|Model||Version||SoC||CPU MHz||Flash MB||RAM MB||WLAN Hardware||WLAN2.4||WLAN5.0||100M ports||Gbit ports||Modem||USB|
|M301||1||Atheros AR7240||400||4||32||Atheros AR7240||b/g/n||-||1||-||-||1x 2.0, 1x mini-USB (power)|
|Model||Version||Current Release||Firmware OpenWrt Install||Firmware OpenWrt Upgrade||Firmware OEM Stock|
As with most TP-Link Routers this one can be flashed using the TP-Link Webinterface.
Note that some software uses 192.168.0.1 and some software uses 192.168.1.1.
How to configure LEDs in general, see the LED section in the led_configuration.
The M301 has 1 bi-color LED:
|LED name||LED color||LED print||Internal name||Trigger|
