Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 2.0.3 Build 20171018 Rel.36564

Hello all. This is my first post. I recently purchased a TL-WPA8630P-KIT to extend the reach of my WIFI in my apartment. It works perfectly, set itself up almost after being plugged in. I am very happy with it. 

 

At the moment I have "two SSIDs" - the original router at one side of the house and the new SSID from my powerline extender. 

 

It's not a major problem but I read from below that the mesh firmware is "coming soon" on this unit.

 

https://www.tp-link.com/us/onemesh/compatibility/

 

Questions:

1. Will my units receive the update and be capable of this functionality? 

 

2. Presumably my router must also be TP link and mesh capable?

 

3. Is there a particular router you recommend? Note my internet speeds are limited to about 30mbps.

Good day.

Please refer to the following information:

1. Will my units receive the update and be capable of this functionality?

--Currently WPA8630P V2 does not have a plan for OneMesh. You might need to keep attention to our official website for updated news. And it would be much recommended to buy the extenders which are already OneMesh compatible.

 

2. Presumably, my router must also be TP-link and mesh capable?

--Yes, the main router needs to be TP-Link OneMesh compatible as well;

 

3. Is there a particular router you recommend? Note my internet speeds are limited to about 30mbps.

--Archer A7 would be fine.

@TP-Link @Solla-topee 

 

Can you please confirm when there will be support for the WPA8630P onemesh firmware?

 

I had also purchased this product based on the planned availability for one mesh support.

 

Many thanks,

@markstillwell  Hello, 

Thank you for being interested in tp-link oneMesh feature. Currently we did not hear a plan for WPA8630P V2 oneMesh feature. 
For the latest news about oneMesh, please always refer to One mesh Compatibility List on the TP-Link official website :
https://www.tp-link.com/onemesh/compatibility/

 

We would record your suggestion and forward it to team for further evaluation. 

Kindly note that " Planned" is not a guarantee for oneMesh feature, and the Planned models might be updated and modified as the notice on the top compatibility list. As a presale suggestion, please consider the models that already support this feature.  
Your understanding is much appreciated.
