Write a short, relevant description of the device. Include a technical overview, but avoid marketing buzzwords/useless stuff. Two to four sentences is about right. A picture is good, too. Edit the page to see how to add pictures.
Warning about bricking your device
You need to use TFTP to install. Do not flash from the stock UI because you will get an lzma kernel decompression error and you’ll have to use serial console to recover from soft-brick.
the directory after –secure is the actual directory where you should copy the file, eg. /srv/tftp
On the device hold the WPS button during startup.
After 10 seconds the router will start trying to download a file ArcherC20V1_tp_recovery.bin via tftp from a server with the IP 192.168.0.66 for 10 more seconds. After finished a white LED will light up.
The ArcherC20V1_tp_recovery.bin provides the basic OpenWrt. If you want to also install the rest of the components like the LuCI GUI, after the above process completed and the router is now up and running, download the latest version of the “Firmware OpenWrt Upgrade” from Installation section above.
Upload the file to the router in /tmp using scp (after first install the root user is allowed login without password)
Router's default IP is for example 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1, etc.
