Suggestions:

  • Include Release Notes with firmware updates, in both the web content and FW Zip Package.  I have now found V1 release notes in the Forum under "Firmware Release", but this is NOT intuitive
  • Display installed Firmware version on footer of all GUI pages
  • Add silicon information to data sheets (inquiring minds want to know)
  • Clarify what functionalities are available without and with a controller (2 column list)

 

Question:

  • Can the USB be used for data including backup of device config?
  • Are the V2.0 and 2.6 the same other than location of MFG (like posts I have seen on 1.0 and 1.6)?
  • What is the processor in this device (see above)?
  • When may we be able to push browser traffic through the VPN?
  • Regarding OpenVPN, what is the encrytion and is this HW or SW/

Re:ER605 v2.6 supports inseego 5G MiFi M2000 USB Hotspot

I looked on the USB modem compatibility site and saw only 1 inseego modem supported (USB800) but not the one I am using. I have an inseego 5G MiFi M2000 purchased from Calyx Institute and using T-Mobile service as an internet service provider and this setup works very well. I also have T-Mobile 5G Home Internet using their Arcadyan KV021 modem connected to the WAN Ethernet port as primary. The inseego is connected to the USB port as backup. Running a speed test from the OC200 controller interface tests and reports the speed of both the WAN and USB modem with one click.

 

The ER605 is a good, inexpensive firewall/router. I wish it had better detailed logs. I'd like to see source and destination IP addresses in the logs like other firewalls I've used (i.e., Palo Alto, SonicWall, Fortinet and NetScreen).

After a firmware update early February 2023 to my inseego M2000 MiFi Hotspot using T-Mobile 5G, the TP-Link ER605 router/firewall was not able to connect the device to the Internet. I turned the M2000 off then on, then reset the M2000 to factory. When the OC200 controller continued to report the M2000 as "off line", I wondered if the problem wasn't with the M2000, but the ER605, or other TP-Link gear. I tested the M2000 connected via USB to my Dell Win 11 laptop; which worked. I then powered off then on, the TP-Link ER605 (router/firewall), TP-Link 8 port PoE SDN switch and OC200 controller. Tthe router then determined the M2000 was connected to the Internet and available as a WAN connection.

  @Fae I have tried to adopt the ER605 in my Omada environment. But everytime I do, the 4g connection that I use for the primairy connection gets lost. COuld it be possible that the USB driver / 4g connection isn't supported (yet) in the Omada environment? When I reset the router and disconnect it as known device in Omada, the 4g connection is back again.

Did you know that adopting a device to the Omada Controller would reset the device?

If it is reset, all configs are lost which will make you lose Internet.

But, it does not affect your Omada Controller adoption. Just configure again the router on the controller.

 

If you are new to the controller, please watch videos and guides from the place where you download the software. Download for Omada Software Controller V5

Hi  @Fae ,

 

It looks like the feature gap between v1 and v2 has grown since this article was published (e.g. Wireguard).

Is there a full comparison somewhere else or can this post be updated?
