If you can SSH into the MR3020 or WR703N...

If some part of the process didn't quite go as it should, or you got an odd error, or things just generally didn't go smoothly, you can re-flash your MR3020 with OpenWRT and start from Stage 2 above. Here's how:

  1. Power off the MR3020
  2. Unplug the USB Drive from the MR3020, and plug it into your computer
  3. Download this file: http://stable.openwrt.piratebox.de/ar71xx/openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-mr3020-v1-squashfs-factory.bin
  4. Copy the file onto your USB Drive
  5. Login to the MR3020, then:
        cd /mnt/usb
        mtd write openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-mr3020-v1-squashfs-factory.bin firmware
        reboot
    

After the reboot, you should be able to start again at Stage 2


If you can't SSH into the MR3020 or WR703N...

  1. Unplug the USB Drive from the MR3020, and plug it into your computer
  2. Download this file: http://stable.openwrt.piratebox.de/ar71xx/openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-mr3020-v1-squashfs-factory.bin
  3. Copy the file onto your USB Drive
  4. Connect the MR3020 to your computer via Ethernet
  5. Manually set the ethernet IP of your computer to 192.168.1.2, and turn off your wireless temporarily
  6. Launch Terminal or Putty, and then:
    ping 192.168.1.1
    and let the ping command run...it will fail, but that's ok.
  7. Power the MR3020 on and when the WPS Button starts to blink , push it. This should cause the button to blink much faster
  8. At this point, you should see the ping from the previous step starting to respond. Once you do, stop the ping command with Option-C
  9. You should now be able to:
    telnet 192.168.1.1
  10. Plug the USB into the MR3020
  11. Try these commands:
      /etc/init.d/boot start
    This will return some error messages, just ignore them.
  12. Then:
      mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
      cd /mnt/
      mtd write openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-mr3020-v1-squashfs-factory.bin firmware
      
  13. Once you see the command prompt again, you can unplug and reboot the MR3020. At this point, you have just finished Stage One of the LibraryBox install instructions.
