Deco M9 Plus v1 updated firmware versus neglecting the v2
Good morning, afternoon and evening everyone.
I need an advice regarding the Deco M9 v1 and v2. I’m used to using the v1 and decided to expand the network so I ordered more Deco M9 but received the v2 this time. At the beginning, I thought this is a welcomed upgrade. Not so fast…
I have discovered that v2 is more limited than the v1. For example, the mobile app will let you know what devices connected to the v1 pods, but not the v2. The v2 cannot be accessed through the web link designed by Tp-Link, while the v1 is accessible!
Now, the straw that broke the camel's back, yesterday I get a notification that my v1 has a firmware upgrade available, while my v2 does not, with so many features available in the v1 upgrade. Seriously??
Published date for the latest firmware for the v2 is 2019-10-14
While the v1 latest firmware is 2020-06-08
Is TP-Link not going to support the v2, and keep it handicapped compared to the v1? I need to know so I can return the v2 that I bought or seek to exchange them with the v1.
