 +===== Multilaser RE027 =====
 +Also know as Multilaser RE039, this is a **rebranded** [[:​toh:​tp-link/​tl-wr741nd|TP-Link TL-WR741ND v1]] from Multilaser (brazilian vendor), and will only accept firmwares with Multilaser vendor ID bytes (in the file header).\\ Other compatible firmwares(TP-Link,​ OpenWRT, Gargoyle, DD-WRT) use different vendor IDs, or does not come with those bytes (which are needed for switching the stock firmware, otherwise you will get TP-Link **error 18005**).
 +===== Switch from Multilaser firmware to original TP-Link (or 3rd party) =====
 +  - Download this tool: [[https://​​zip/​zFlWAV4Rce/​firmware_hw_id_modifier.html|Firmware_hardware_ID_modifier.exe]] - The tool is in Chinese, but it's really simple to use.
 +  - Download a compatible [[http://​​en/​support/​download/?​model=TL-WR741ND&​version=V1|TP-Link WR741ND v1]] firmware. (TP-Link or 3rd party)
 +  - Open the tool, choose firmware, and edit the values: (0x40-0x43) **07410001** [router model], and (0x44-0x47) change from 00000001 to **00280001** [vendor id]
 +  - Some message will pop up. The firmware headers are now changed.
 +  - Open your browser, and upgrade the firmware normally by the web GUI. (don't do this through wireless)
 +  - Your router will then restart with the TP-Link / 3rd party firmware.
 +For the next firmware updates, you don't need to change **vendor ID bytes** again.
 +Everything can now be done like it was an original [[:​toh:​tp-link/​tl-wr741nd|TL-WR741ND v1]]
 +* This can be applied to many other **rebranded routers** using the same hardware.
 +===== Images =====
 +How to change vendor ID bytes:
 +**(2)** is router model\\ **(3)** is vendor ID

 +All the internal images are the same as [[:​toh:​rosewill/​rnx-n150rt|RNX-N150RT]] and [[:​toh:​tp-link/​tl-wr741nd|TL-WR741ND]] v1/v2
