Model: Archer MR600  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.2.0 0.9.1 v0001.0 Build 200511 Rel.44954n

With the MR600 4g+, the 4G+ light is not ON and I could see only one band (40) in the router console, I am in India and have tried with Airtel and Jio? also no improvement in the speed. Please suggest whats needs to be done.

Hello,

 

Please check the Network type of your SIM card.

Here is the Network type of MR600: https://www.tp-link.com/en/home-networking/3g-4g-router/archer-mr600/#specifications

 

Please insert the SIM card to your cell phone, then check if your cell phone can get the 4G+ speed?

 

You can try to move the router to another place, then check if you can get the 4G+ signal.

 

How much speed can you get from your Internet provider? And what speed can you get from the MR600?

 

May it help and have a nice day!

Update:

There has already been a beta firmware that could manually choose the network band.

https://static.tp-link.com/2020/202007/20200714/LTE_GATEWAYv3_1.11.0_0.9.1_up_boot(200325)_2020-06-12_15.48.55.zip

If your sim card carrier supported 2CA, you could go to basic>internet to fix two CA bands.

Thank you!

Re:MR600 4G+ model - Not working as expected(with dual band 4G+) (Carrier Aggregation not working)

@Satheskumar @TP-Link 

 

I recently bought MR600 as i wanted high speed with 4g+. I am in India & using Airtel SIM card. When i use Airtel Sim card with my mobile (Redmi K20 Pro) i get 4G+ icon on my mobile and download speed reaches 70Mb. When I use the same sim card with MR600, it shows signal strength 100% but doesnt show 4G+. The download speed is about 20 Mbps.

 

I tried placing MR600 at various location in my house but couldnt get 4G+. Router is running with latest OS.

 

As per Airtel - 4G Advanced will combine 2300 MHz (TD LTE) and 1800 MHz (FD LTE) bandwidth capacities.

 

As per MR600 specification --

 

4G: FDD-LTE: B1/B3/B5/B7/B8/B20/B28 (2100/1800/850/2600/900/800/700 MHz)
TDD-LTE: B38/B40/B41 (2600/2300/2500 MHz)
3G: DC-HSPA+/HSPA/UMTS: B1/B5/B8 (2100/850/900 MHz)

 

As I can see both Band are supported on MR600 & available with Airtel, wondering why is it not working?? Do we have any workaround??

 

This is extreme disappointment as i already had 4G router but wanted to get high speed and bought new MR600 for high speed 4G+. But now stuck with low speed on 4G only. I couldnt find any option to manually select 4G+.

 

If the problem doesnt solve, i will be forced to return the device back.

@Satheskumar 

Hi

Can you share snapshot from MR600 showing Band used for 4G+? You can find it under Advance --> Status.

 

Thanks in advance.
