TP-Link TL-WA901ND

This device is NOT RECOMMENDED for future use with OpenWrt due to low flash/ram.
DO NOT BUY DEVICES WITH 4MB FLASH / 32MB RAM if you intend to flash an up-to-date and secure OpenWrt version (18.06 or later) onto it! See 4/32 warning for details.

1) This device does not have sufficient resources (flash and/or RAM) to provide secure and reliable operation.
This means that even setting a password or changing simple network settings might not be possible any more, rendering the device effectively useless. See OpenWrt on 4/32 devices what you can do now.

2) OpenWrt support for this device will end after 2019.
19.07 will be the last official build for 4/32 devices. After 19.07, no further OpenWrt images will be built for 4/32 devices. See OpenWrt on 4/32 devices what you can do now.

The TL-WA901ND is a lowcost b/g/n wireless access point, capable of running OpenWrt.

TL-WA901ND v1.x TL-WA901ND v2.x TL-WA901ND v3.0 TL-WA901ND v4.0 TL-WA901ND v5.0
  • Version 1.x of this device is fully supported since r22353.
  • Version 2.x of this device has been reported to work fine with r29330 (no earlier versions tested).
  • Version 3.x is supposed to work since 14.07 (https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?pid=276512#p276512).
  • Version 4.x of this device is fully supported since r49158 ( trunk )
  • Version 5.x most recent version, hardware seems identical to v4, but the PCB layout has changed.

Starting with version 19.07.4 OpenWrt supports these routers with the new target ath79-tiny, but standard images will be too large. However, you can build own images using the respective ImageBuilder. For instance, to build an image for WA901nd-V5 including LuCI and excluding PPP use the following command, see detailed instructions under build your own image:

  • Atheros AR7240 CPU
  • 4 MB flash memory
  • 32 MB RAM
  • Atheros AR9285 wireless chip

The serial console connector has the usual TP-Link pinout: RX - TX - GND - +5V (Power connector)

However, as with other TP-Link models, a little hardware mod is required in most circumstances to get the serial console working properly. Without this mod, you might see garbled chars when using a Prolific PL2302-based level shifter. This is because TP-Link employed some sort of voltage divider as has been reported for the TL-WR741ND as well: RX will have a high level of only 1,7V, whereas the CPU pin itself has the usual 2,5V.

To fix this, you must remove the 2x 5k6 resistors R249 (→ 3.3V) and R251 (→ GND) as well as the capacitor C278. You might want to replace it with a 1K resistor to protect the CPU pin, otherwise bridging the pads will do the job but offers the risk of damaging the CPU port.

After this, the console will be accessible at 115200bps 8N1. Type “tpl” to escape automatic boot and reach U-boot's prompt. Note this is a crippled U-boot: you can not modify the environment settings permanently which is why OpenWrt kernels ignore the kernel command line.

Comment: The WR741ND had the same serial connection, and I fixed it without altering the board, by simply placing a 10k pullup resistor between the TX and 3.3V pins.

via Web Interface

You can install OpenWrt factory image via the web interface (System > Firmware Upgrade)

via Bootloader and Ethernet port

Using the serial console, new firmware versions can be loaded via TFTP and flashed as follows. This assumes your TFTP server is reachable at 192.168.1.100. You can change IP addresses with:

setenv ipaddr a.b.c.d
setenv serverip e.f.g.h

TFTP loading and flashing is done by issuing:

tftpboot 0x80000000 openwrt-ar71xx-tl-wa901nd-squashfs-factory.bin
erase 0x9f020000 +0x3c0000
cp.b 0x80000000 0x9f020000 0x3c0000

If successful, the firmware can now be started with

bootm 0x9f020000

  • Atheros AR9132 CPU
  • 4 MB flash memory
  • 32 MB ram
  • Atheros AR5416 wireless chip
  • RTL8201 Ethernet chip

The serial console connector has the usual TP-Link pinout: RX - TX - GND - +3.3V (Power connector)

It's 115200 8N1, software flow control. It's a TTL serial port, so don't plug it directly into a RS232 port. You have to build a TTL-RS232 adaptor to attach your WA901ND to your computer:

With that, you can now use a null modem cable to attach it to your PCs COM port.

To access the boot menu, type “tpl” (without quotes) when you see “autobooting in 1 seconds”.

The ethernet port is not enabled in the boot loader. Because of that, TFTP cannot be used to transfer the firmware.

The default image for this device (tested with v2) has no LuCI at all and no room to install it. So, no web config nor web revert. Be advised! The version OpenWrt Chaos Calmer 15.05 LuCI (git-15.248.30277-3836b45) seems to work and seems to have a working LuCI, your mileage may vary

via Web Interface

You can install OpenWrt via the TP-Link web interface, select the firmware upgrade and browse to your local copy of the pre-compiled binary images below.

The current (2015.11.29) trunk is the .bin file openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-wa901nd-v2-squashfs-factory.bin

The current (2015.11.29) stable release is at openwrt-15.05-ar71xx-generic-tl-wa901nd-v2-squashfs-factory.bin

You will want to configure your new OpenWrt by:

1. set your static IP to 192.168.1.x (some of the images already have dnsmasq running so this step may not be required)

2. telnet (some versions only support SSH try both) into the device either through putty or unix terminal:

telnet 192.168.1.1

Full guide found here: First Login

3. Then you will want to secure your router:

root@openwrt:~$ passwd
Changing password for root
New password:
Retype password:
Password for root changed by root
root@openwrt:~$ 

4. then you will want to configure your router to your liking, I suggest starting here Dumb AP

5. then you will want to configure your router with LuCI: (the v2 AP is not able to support LuCI so skip this section)

opkg update
opkg install luci
/etc/init.d/uhttpd enable
/etc/init.d/uhttpd start

(the full guide can be found here LuCI Essentials)

via Bootloader and Serial port

ar7100> loady

Now send the file openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-wa901nd-v2-squashfs-factory.bin using the Ymodem protocol with your terminal emulation.

After the filetransfer has been completed type:

ar7100> erase 0xbf020000 +0x3c0000
ar7100> cp.b 0x81000000 0xbf020000 0x3c0000
ar7100> reset

re-install via sysupgrade

If you have to load the current (2015.11.29) stable version from inside OpenWrt you need the sysupgrade version at openwrt-15.05-ar71xx-generic-tl-wa901nd-v2-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin

A discussion around the version 3.x is in Openwrt forum.

Flashing via Web GUI fails with installed stock FW. A workaround is to use the firmware file from here (including LuCI admin GUI): https://www.dropbox.com/s/dyjxbohh85na0qs/openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-wa901nd-v3-squashfs-factory-12.09.bin FIXME DEAD LINK and use it to get OpenWrt running.

Images for the 3.x version can be obtained from here:

Stable release (Barrier Braker, LuCI included):

Oxxion repository:

port.serial general information about the serial port, serial port cable, etc.

How to connect to the Serial Port of this specific device:

**Photo of PCB with markings**

Serial port layout is:
(1) VCC (3.3V)
(2) GND
(3) RX
[4] TX

Settings: 115200 8N1

There is NO hardware modification needed.

The bootloader is uboot with enabled ethernet network device. To access uboot console type quickly tpl if you see Autobooting in 1 seconds.

uboot + tftp

You can do recovery using uboot and tftp. Prepare a tftp server at 192.168.1.100 containing openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-wa901nd-v3-squashfs-factory.bin.

erase 0x9f020000 +0x3c0000
tftpboot 0x81000000 openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-wa901nd-v3-squashfs-factory.bin
cp.b 0x81000000 0x9f020000 0x3c0000
bootm 0x9f020000

Now OpenWrt should be installed and run.

I got problems when loading image to ram and after that I try to clear the flash range for the os image. This is the reason why to clear first.

Warning!
This section describes actions that might damage your device or firmware. Proceed with care!

Two tiny resistors (R162, R164) that connect the serial console pads towards the CPU are not placed, you need to solder two tiny bridges for the serial to work from the pads! See the detail picture below. It is possible that these were intended as voltage dividers, but R0 bridges Worked For Us™. Hint: solder the bridges before soldering pins onto the pads.

115200 8N1, software flow control, TTL levels.

The serial console pin order is identical to v3:

  • 3V3 (do not connect)
  • GND (plug your TTL UART's “GND” cable here)
  • RX (plug your TTL UART's “TX” cable here, so the UART's Transmit line is connected to the TP-Link's Receive line)
  • TX (plug your TTL UART's “RX” cable here)

…where TX is the square pad, closest to the front side with the LEDs, as seen in this picture:

You can install OpenWrt factory image via the web interface (System Tools > Firmware Upgrade). (Confirmed for V18.06.8)

Warning!
This section describes actions that might damage your device or firmware. Proceed with care!

Same as in v4 but different, two tiny resistors (R162, R164) that connect the serial console pads towards the CPU are not placed, you need to solder two tiny bridges for the serial to work from the pads! See the detail picture below.

115200 8N1, software flow control, TTL levels.

  • RX (plug your TTL UART's “TX” cable here, so the UART's Transmit line is connected to the TP-Link's Receive line)
  • GND (plug your TTL UART's “GND” cable here)
