Multilaser RE027

Also know as Multilaser RE039, this is a TL-WR741ND v1 rebrand for Multilaser, and will only accept firmware with Multilaser vendor bytes (in the file header). Others 3rd party(OpenWRT/DD-Wrt/TP-Link) firmwares does not have those bytes.

Convert Multilaser to a TP-Link

Steps:

  1. Download this tool: TP-Link_hardware_ID_modifier.exe. The software is in Chinese , but it's really simple to use, you do not need to see the menus.
  2. Download the oldest firmware from TP-Link WR741ND v1 webpage.
  3. Open the software, choose the original firmware, than change the values: first col (0x40-0x43) repeat code 07410001, and next col (0x44-0x47) write 00280001.
  4. Some message will show in the software, about 5 lines. Then the original firmware was changed (check date modified of file).
  5. Open your browser, and do the firmware update normally. (don't do this through wireless).
  6. After that, your router will restart with TP-Link original firmware.

For next firmware update, you DON'T need to change the vendor bytes again, just download the latest firmware from TP-Link website and proceed to update.

All new mod/change now can be done according the original wiki page of TL-WR741ND.

How to update to OpenWRT

Not tested yet, but should work same as TP-Link WR741 compatibility page.
