Before we proceed with any troubleshooting,please once unplug your router from the wall outlet wait for 2 minutes and plug it back in.

Hi.
I solved that problem: web interface was on different ip address 192.168.1.1 I tried 192.168.0.1.

But now I'm facing with another problem. When I plu ethernet cable into lan port of router speed is terrible: 2 Mbits, on TP link firmware it was about 80 Mbits. I even disabled security on router, first few minutes speed was increased up to 25 Mbits, but later again felt down to 2 Mbits. Can you help me?

That is definitely a firmware issue, may I know why you have switched to OPENWRT Firmware.

I have to turn off/on router for few times per day because it stops giving access to wifi. Found on internet forums that OpenWrt is more stable.
Network Technician: Suhasini Velu,

Alright, but right now we may have to reset the whole router and reinstall the Firmware.

Let me opt out of this and let other experts to handle this.
