TP-Link TL-WDR3320

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 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 has ended in 2022.
19.07.10 was the last official build for 4/32 devices.

Dual Band (concurrent) and 100mbps Ethernet. Advertised as 600 Mbps it is Dual-Stream (2×2) on the 2.4 GHz Band and Dual-Stream (2×2) on the 5 GHz Band. Similar to TP-Link TL-WDR3500

With the TL-WR842ND router, there is a catch: the stock firmware is obtained from the OEM:

The OpenWrt firmware is now in progress on

But it seems the offical firmware comes with a different RSA signature, so the head of modded OpenWrt firmware is different that can only be write with a third-party u-boot or a SPI programmer, but not the offical flash web pages.

maybe this method would work if the firmware is chinese?
