 +===== RT150M =====
 +Also know as Pacific Networks RT-150M (9V power adaptor version), this is a [[:​toh:​tp-link/​tl-wr741nd|TL-WR741ND]] v1 //rebrand// for Pacific Networks, and will only accept firmware with Pacific Networks vendor bytes (in the file header). Others 3rd party(OpenWRT/​DD-Wrt/​TP-Link) firmwares does not have those bytes.
 +This is identical to Multilaser RE027 router. Pacific Networks did not have any firmware available to copy vendor bytes but they were found out and are shown below.
 +===== Convert Pacific Networks to a TP-Link =====
 +  - Download this tool: [[https://​​zip/​zFlWAV4Rce/​firmware_hw_id_modifier.html|Firmware_hardware_ID_modifier.exe]]. The software is in Chinese, but it's really simple to use, you do not need to see the menus.
 +  - Download the oldest firmware from [[http://​​en/​support/​download/?​model=TL-WR741ND&​version=V1|TP-Link WR741ND v1]] webpage.
 +  - Open the software, choose the original firmware, than change the values: first col (0x40-0x43) repeat code **07410001**,​ and next col (0x44-0x47) write **00300001**.
 +  - Some message will show in the software, about 5 lines. Then the original firmware was changed (check date modified of file).
 +  - Open your browser, and do the firmware update normally. (don't do this through wireless).
 +  - 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 [[:​toh:​tp-link/​tl-wr741nd|TL-WR741ND]].
 +===== How to update to OpenWRT =====
 +Not tested yet, but should work same as [[:​toh:​tp-link/​tl-wr741nd#​installation|TP-Link WR741 compatibility page]].
 +===== Images of PN-RT150M 9V =====
 +All the internal images are the same as [[:​toh:​rosewill/​rnx-n150rt|RNX-N150RT]] and [[:​toh:​tp-link/​tl-wr741nd|TL-WR741ND]] //v1/v2//.
 +===== Relevant forum links =====
