Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version:

I'm planning to get the AC1900 Archer VR900 V2 or V3, and I'd like to know if there're relevant differences between the two models?

 

While searching for this, I've only found people linking to technical sheets about chips and etc....But I'd like to know what are the relevant differences that might be decisive for purchase, as I consider every feature as usefull, as I might need it someday.

 

I've tried the emulators for both V2 and V3, and while V3 seem to have VPN server, V2 seem to lack it.

 

Also, V3 seem to lack IPTV.

 

Can anyone tell me what are the relevant differences between the two models?

 

Thanks

The Archer VR900 V3 supports VPN server, including IPsec, PPTP, and OpenVPN, while V2 supports IPsec VPN only. 

 

And the V2 supports bandwidth control, while it is been replaced by QoS on V3. 

 

V3 supports firewall while V2 does not. 

 

For more information, you can refer to the user manual.

 

Good day.

The Archer VR900 V3 should be available now; you can contact the retailer/distributor before you buy it. 

 

The hardware version can be verified on the box package. 

 

Good day.
