Model: ER605 (TL-R605)  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version:

Dear @TP-Link @Hank21 @Fae

 

Why does the TL-R605 have 1.2.1 Firmware (https://www.tp-link.com/en/support/download/tl-r605/v1/#Firmware) and the ER605 have 1.3.0 (https://www.tp-link.com/en/support/download/er605/v1/#Firmware)?

What is the difference between TL-R605 V1 and ER605 V1?

Hi @MauriceGee 

Thanks for posting questions here. I see in this post you have two questions.

First, they are the same products. The naming thing was a legacy of old formatting.

Second, the page was not updated after the name format was changed. Omada was later on introduced as a new product family. It is actually the same as the ER605. That page was a legacy page.

  @MR.S 

Then why do the two support pages state a different firmware version?

  @NinjaMonkey 

I can upgrade. That id not the issue.

I want to know why the two support pages state a different firmware version.

There was a name change on the ER605 a few years ago, so that's probably why it's like this, tp-link hasn't cleaned it up properly.

But both are the same so you can use ER605 software even if it says something else on the router.
