Model: ER605 (TL-R605)  
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 2.1.2 Build 20230210 Rel.62992

I have tried configuring the USB modem on my router via the browser interface but am getting weird behaviour of the web page and my modem won't work, presumably because the APN etc isn't configured correctly.

 

When I make changes to settings they randomly flip back again and initially it kept on switching back to country Argentina (the first on the list) whenever I selected UK.

 

I did after many attempts manage to select UK and 3 Mobile but nothing worked with Auto setting.

Attempting to select manual is impossible as it constantly flips back to auto even after saving manual settings.

The root cause of all this weird behaviour is probably due to this error in the browser log of Chrome:  

 

 

I have tried Edge and Firefox, and they all behave exactly the same way.

I'm guessing this is probably a bug recently introduced as I've seen nobody else complaining about it, and its only on the USB modem page that I see an issue.

Dear @Psquared , @Hoamboy ,

 

Thank you for taking the time to report the issue in TP-Link Community!

 

May I know if you both use the ER605 in standalone mode?

 

If you use it in standalone mode, the issue has been located and it's confirmed to fix the issue in the subsequent firmware update on the ER605 v2.

So please keep an eye on the official website and this thread.

Have you tried an earlier firmware version yet?

  @d0ugmac1 I'm nervous about rolling back as the config may not be compatible and break even more things for me.

I am wondering if I can work around this by using the Omada controller interface rather than the browser as it will be using an API to talk to the router instead.

 

However, I'm a bit worried that trying to add this may cause me even more issues, (a quick search and I saw issues of it totally wiping peoples config) has anyone tried it?

  @Hank21 I can confirm that I am using it in standalone mode. When is the software update likely to be available?

Sorry that I don't have further insights into when the subsequent firmware will be released.

But as far as I'm concerned, this issue is only with the front-end display, the actual configuration has been issued.

My dongle behaves as though it isn't configured right, and won't connect to the mobile network. Whilst the issue may be related to the display, it really isn't clear what setting you have, assuming that you've managed to change it in the first place. Is there any work around other than waiting for new firmware?
