Moderator Note:

1. The availability of EasyMesh Ethernet Backhaul may vary by region even for the same model. Please check your local website for more information.
2. The above list might not include all models and hardware versions. It is recommended to keep watching the firmware releases for your router, as the EasyMesh Ethernet Backhaul will be listed in the patch notes if/when it is added to your version.

 

 

Some of our EasyMesh Wi-Fi routers have added support for establishing a seamless mesh network via EasyMesh Ethernet Backhaul. You can now connect two or more EasyMesh devices together by wiring the satellite device to the main EasyMesh router. Please check for the updates on your router web GUI or Tether App for the new firmware, update and install the latest official firmware on the router to explore all the new features like EasyMesh Ethernet Backhaul.

 

Or you can download the latest official version from the local website and upgrade the firmware manually as follows:

Pretty excited about this feature, waiting for the AX55 too. One question, Ethernet Backhaul works with routers in AP mode?

Hello!

 

Is this the temporary fix for the local LAN reset after reboot too? Just updated one of our clients A8 v1 to 1.12.0 and after the update, the router was reachable through remote management, but none of the port forwards worked.

 

The router is working in router mode but no DHCP is enabled on it, we got a separate DHCP server on the network. The router just dial up the internet and works as a wan gw and DNS. 

After 30 mins of debug, I found out, that after every reboot, the router forgots its LAN ip 192.168.1.254 and resets to 192.168.0.114. Here is the log, it not completly forgets the good ip. After reboot it sets the desired IP and after a few steps it changes back to 192.168.0.114

 

Here is the log

Please install this early release version on your Archer A8 to check if the issue gets fixed.

  @Kevin_Z Where can I find the 1.12 version of the firmware with EasyMesh support for the Archer C80(BR) v2.20 hardware? Based on this post (https://community.tp-link.com/en/home/forum/topic/578810) that is already available but I cannot manage to find it. Thanks!

Do both routers in the setup need to support Ethernet EasyMesh or is it fine for only one of them to support Ethernet backbone if the other one can still do EasyMesh (like for instance the second router supports EasyMesh but hasnt been updated with Ethernet EasyMesh)?

Hi @oqferraz, thank you for asking.

 

We are providing an early released version of the EasyMesh Ethernet Backhaul for Archer C80 V1.0 version here, and it is not applicable for Archer C80 V2.20.

 

I was informed previously that the official versions for Archer C80 V1.0 and V2.20 are on the way, you could get the online upgrade very soon in days or weeks. It's suggested to wait and check for the updates on your router web GUI or Tether app later.

@LinkFX Thanks for asking.

 

Only when both routers support EasyMesh Ethernet Backhaul can you build up the EasyMesh network via Ethernet Backhaul.
