hi;

I would like the ability to turn of wifi at night such that there is no wifi at all.

in Tp links general routers you can switch off wifi. 

can this be implemented in the deco M4 (or deco family)?

thanks

Hi All,

Thank you for all your feedback.
The feature request for Wi-Fi schedule has not been accepted yet.
Deco is mainly controlled by Deco APP and the smartphone needs to connect to connect to Wi-Fi for local control.
And the frequently used backhaul for Deco Mesh is 2.4ghz/5ghz wireless backhaul.
Once they are disabled by WiFi schedule, satellite Deco units would fail to maintain a connection with the main Deco, and is unable to be back online after the Wi-Fi schedule.

@gkatz 

 

You can open Deco app, click more-Wi-Fi and disable wifi function to disable it at night. 

 

While there is no wifi schedule available, we will remind our R&D team and they can work on it and evaluate the feasibility.

@Kevin_Z thanks; so this makes 2 features I am waiting for in the next firmware update  

any time table for the next release?

also, can I assume I would be able to disable wifi seperatly for each deco? or is this a all or nothing thing? (personaly I would like to configure this for each deco seperatly)

thanks again

@Kevin_Z 

Hello Kevin, I tried the same on my Deco M5, but it says, at least one band either 2.4 or 5ghz should be on, in order to manage decos. It tere, any other ways to turn off wi-fi from mobile app ?  o_O

Hi, 

       Great to hear you will hv this for yr next FW released for Deco M4.

Btw, is it possible to allow the admin to set a schedule for WIFI turn on and turn off time?

This is common in Xiaomi Wifi router.

 

Thank you

I have the same issue, which is a strange behavior as the deco M5 can be manage from the cloud, there's no need to be wired via wifi.

@Kevin_Z : Is there something we can do about that ? I would really like to be able to turn off wifi when it's not needed. Thank you :-)

@Viki 

 

The firmware has been released already. https://www.tp-link.com/support/download/deco-m4/v1/#Firmware 

 

You can check the firmware upgrade on the Deco app.

 

Best regards.
