@TP-Link_Deco 

 

It worked for me.

 

The only problem I had was in the first attempt to upload the firmware using Chrome on a Mac. After that, I tried again and it worked. It looks like at the second attempt to upload the firmware, it works.

 

I have 3 Deco M5 and everything looks pretty stable.

 

Thank you TP Link but you could do it better. A lot of users were warning about it since the first iOS 14 beta 1 in July.

If I have 3 M5s and one M4 will installing this cause me problems connecting to the M4? Is a WPA3 update planned for the M4 too?

@TP-Link_Deco I understand it's not possible to use internet ui for the m9. How can you install the beta zip?

@TP-Link_Deco Just installed the new firmware... the Web UI is a bit glitchy... but I'm sure you're working on that... The AES WiFi security option is a bit buried, but I found it and am pleased that my devices are happy to connect without issue, and they've stopped complaining about "Weak Security".

Using the app I'm amazed to find the new "Optimize" option... I've run it and OMG my WiFi is even better that it was before! Brilliant!

@Jarvichi 

What is this optimize option? What does it do? 

I don't have it on my phone app... Latest app and latest android... 

What am I missing???

Hello, 

 

We have released the beta firmware for both Deco M5 and M4, so there won't be an issue, don't worry. Here is the download link for the beta firmware:

While there is currently not a plan to support WPA3 on the Deco M4, you may keep an eye on the official website in case there is any update:

Thanks a lot~

Hello,

 

I think this may have been discussed multiple times on the forum that you need to update your Deco M9 Plus V2 firmware to the 1.4.0 via the Upgrade Tool manually, then you will have the web UI, see this post:

Thanks a lot~
