Hi @nguyenvq ,


Welcome to the community!


TPG customised the firmware of the supplied TP-Link Archer VR1600v modem/router for security purposes this caused the modem's back up configuration no longer available.

Hi @Shane

I want to blow away the TPG customised and restore the original TP-Link Archer VR1600v firmware, can i do that if so tell me the detail.
can you explain backup and restore feature that cause any security issue? or you guy to lazy to help customer to configure their router?

Hi @nguyenvq,


The TPG supplied modem, TP Link VR1600v does not support the backup and restore function.


If you want to restore the original firmware of the modem, you can check TP Link's website or contact TP Link directly for assistance.

TPG have you fixed the Backup function yet? This discussion has been ongoing for the last year?
