Model: Deco M5
Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version: 1.4.7

Has anyone else updated their Deco M5 with the latest firmware:. 1.4.7.  I haven't noticed any real improvement yet after upgrade.  What I did notice is they still haven't added the ability to select channels....this lack of functionality and ongoing issues is making me return the Deco M5's.

Thanks @Chiswick_Singh for his professional and valued suggestions on this changing channel concern.

 

@AnonyOne 

 

We will soon release an official firmware to allow you to change the wireless security type on the Deco system in weeks, as for disabling the DHCP feature when Deco is working at AP mode, we will also give you the option on the later firmware updates in the future.

 

As for the changing channel request, just as Chiswick_Singh stated, this is how the Deco mesh system builds that it is conjunction of 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks, so the channel is not manually configurable. While our developers are working on this and will publish new official firmware in the near future, which will optimize the current channeling picking mechanism, it is suggested to wait for the new updates and confirm if that will help address any of your concerns.

 

Good days.

I have V2 still on 1.2.4 because I've been put off updating by all the issues people were having.

Did you upgrage from 1.4.X?

 

Has anyone else got any comments on this version?

No issues with the update here. Didn't lose any config settings. Haven't noticed any difference. I have been satisfied with the M5.

@dk61 

updated 6 x Deco M5 to the 1.4.7 and have not seen/noticed any change whatsoever - neither good or bad.

tbh - i am not at all sure what exactly has been modified from 1.4.2

Updated 7 days ago.

Version seems more stable.

I use the M5's in router config, with previous version I had problems with internet connection (Wifi connection without internet access) a few times (1-3) a week. Had to reboot the Deco's to fix it.

With the new firmware this didn't happen anymore (so far). 

 

Indeed, waiting for the option to manually configure the channel. Support told they expect the feature this quarter...

No problem with the v1.4.7 Firmware Update - Very Happy.

Virgin Media 200Mb+ SuperHub (Modem Mode) -> ASUS Router (WiFi Off) -> three Deco M5 units (in Access Point operating mode).
