Firmware Upgrade for Archer VR1600v v1

Firmware upgrade for Archer VR1600v v1


Hello TPG,


I am on the NBN FTTC SL Bundle Fast and for the past couple of months I have noticed my download speed slowly decreasing and it is sitting at download speeds of 2.13 MBPs even when I am sitting right next to the router. While doing my research I discovered that speeds should actually reach up to around 60-90Mbps during peak hours*. What can I do to achieve these speeds?


I also noticed that my firmware could possibly need updating.


Firmware Version: 0.1.0 0.9.1 v5006.0 Build 200810 Rel.53181n

Hardware Version:  Archer VR1600v v1 00000000


What can I do to update the firmware too?


Is there a way to have someone from TPG come and investigate what is causing the slow internet speeds and restore the inital nbn speeds from when I first got it?
