Please can you upgrde my firmware Archer VR1600v

I am also suprised that i have to ask TPG to update this for me, this should be an option do do it ourselves or tick a box that says check every night for an update and do it automatically.....

 

My lan and wireless connections sometimes drop out and i need to reboot the modem.

Hi @ogruca 

 

I have made a request for our hardware team to push a firmware upgrade out to your modem.

Current FW: TP-Link Archer VR1600 v1.0: 0.1.0 0.9.1 v5006.0 Build 180828 Rel.56416n

 

Also, here is some info on wifi improvements.

Wireless interference can cause various issues with your WiFi network. If all of your devices connected to via WiFi are affected, then you may need to change some wireless settings. We've created an article that will guide you on How to improve your home network.

Hi David

 

Thank you for organising the firmware upgrade.  I still have issues with this VR1600v modem where clients in my house both wired and wireless cant conenct to the modem, it wont allocate an ip address or connect to the wireless/wired network.  It only works after a reboot.  i have scheduled an automatic reboot at the lowest configurable time being three days at 2am.

 

Any any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @markglibres 

 

Can you check what firmware version your modem is using and let me know.

 

Thanks,
