Head into our firmware repository to retrieve a link to the firmware you need.
https://packages.ctapp.io/firmware/lede-17.01/ar71xx/generic/
Comfast firmware is denoted by the "cf". Once you find that, look for the model number of your device.
E.g b_170515_00-cf-e316n-v2-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin
Then right click and copy the link address.

Connect an Ethernet cable between the LAN port on the router and the network port on your computer

3

Configure the PC with a static IP, e.g. 192.168.1.2

4

Press and hold the reset button on the router while you power it on, re-connect the power without releasing the reset button

In your computer's terminal run the following command, making sure to replace the URL with the one you copied previously:

wget https://packages.ctapp.io/firmware/lede-17.01/ar71xx/generic/b_170515_00-cf-(INSERT_CORRECT_MODEL).bin

Once that command has run successfully, run the following command, making sure to replace file name and IP with your details:

curl -F [email protected]_170515_00-cf-(INSERT_CORRECT_MODEL).bin 192.168.1.2
