Deco M5 firmware 1.4.4 broken
Deco M5 firmware 1.4.4 broken
2020-04-08 23:05:02
Model: Deco M5  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.4.4

After I install firmware 1.4.4 all my Decos keeps loosing connection between then. I was so happy with my Decos, but now It's a headache. I am in quarantine, couldn't leave and my decos are not working.

 

i have 3 decos. Main office with WAN connection. One in TV room and other in Service Area. Before upgrade, TV room deco connect easily with office on 5GHz and service area with TV room on 5 GHz as weel and good rate.

 

now, seen the app, connections on 2.4GHz and very poor signal.

@lfalcao 

 

Next to the TV room Deco or the service area Deco, can you get a good 5GHz signal from the front-end Deco, which is office Deco and TV room respectively. 

 

You can turn off the 2.4GHz on the Deco app and verify whether they will connect to the 5GHz and its signal strength. 

 

Try to move them closer to each other and check the Linked Deco/signal source. 

 

And you can swap the location of the Deco units or switch the slave Deco to the main one to give it a shot.

Good day.

Kevin_Z Quando será resolvido o problema do firmware 1.4.4 do deco m5? Os decos estão inutilizados por o problemas de queda de conexão. Simplesmente não consigo usar os decos.

@leogz, aqui não funciona.

São 3 unidades deco m5 v3 distribuidos pelo apartamento, todas as unidades apresetam o mesmo problema no firwmare 1.4.4 e 1.4.2 em modo router ou ap.

O forum estão cheio de pessoas reclamando do mesmo problema, depois de algum tempo ligados eles começam a apresentar falha na navegação nos aparelhos conectado a rede deco (não importa se estiver conectado pelo wifi ou pelo cabo).

Tenho cerca de 26 equipamentos conectados a rede deco sendo grande parte dele equipamentos IoT. E simplismente param de funcionar do nada....

Já tentei usar a ferramenta GDPR.exe para voltar ao firmware 1.3.x sem sucesso.

Voltei o meu Archer C9 no lugar e encostei esse lixo de sistema, caro pra caramba e inutil.

@Kevin_Z . Yes I can. BEFORE the 1.4.4 everything works fine. I have 3 Deco M5 for more than a year on the same place. Just now it happens. I don't think a link on how configure is the answer, sorry for that.

 

this is a BUG on. 1.4.4 firmware.

Can confirm also. Deco M5 V1 with 1.4.4 fails randomly (when 1.4.2 was OK and all firmwares before that as well), wifi goes off and comes back (probably access points restarting?). Went back to 1.4.2 by loggin into the main device via web and burning this firmware: https://community.tp-link.com/en/home/forum/topic/187114 Hope they will solve it in the next release.

@lfalcao 

go to https://tplinkdeco.net/ and that should help you to log in, then click on Advancded (at the top), then system then Firmware Update, from there select your device model and browse to the file you downloaded before.

Good Luck!

@lfalcao  One observation: You have to download the file. DECOMPRESS, Proof that it is easy, I have been able even ...
  Firmware 1.4.2 is fine, no problems. Cheers

@Kiu I know how to update firmaware but my deco don't accept downgrade for some reason.
