  @ceejaybassist 

 

Network security and application control

 

I don't have a hardware controller myself, but I think I remember reading that hardware controllers don't have this function.
so if you can't find it, that's probably why.

  @MR.S oh. I hope they will implement the DPI also in the hardware controllers. Just like with ER605 v2, which they said before that its hardware does not support it, so I am still hoping to be implemented in the hardware controllers.

  @ceejaybassist yeah its in the latest notes for the beta controller;

3. DPI: Added support for Deep Packet Inspection in Site view > Settings > Network Security > Application Control, which helps you to manage your network traffic through Application Layer. (except the OC200 and OC300)

 

not sure about the reason, maybe its a work in progress and will be enabled in the final release..

I have an unusual request - could someone with an ER 605 v2 router with Firmware Version: 2.2.3 Build 20240112 (Beta) installed show screenshots of what the new Deep Packet Inspection functionality looks like?
Thank you in advance

@Clive_A Thank you for posting this beta firmware.
 

To describe my setup:

ISP with DUAL Stack, router with integrated cable modem. I'm able to set a switch port of the router to bridge mode to connect a separate router directly to the cable modem. The ISP then issues a second IPv4 address and give a IPv6 prefix /59.

With any other router like a openwrt or similar, this is working fine.

 

The ER605 instead is able to connect initially and gets a /59 prefix delegation but after a short while it drops this and IPv6 connectivity is lost for router and everything behind.

This is the case since I got this router one year ago to get started with Omada.

 

If I connect the ER605 to the router/cable modem (without bridge mode), I get a prefix fine and stable.

 

How can I help TP-Link to debug and finally fix this.

I think I might run into this before. Is this prefix given by your ISP?
