Model: Deco P7  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.4.7

This morning I updated my P7s to the new fw 1.4.7.

My internet Speed was 138MBit. Now I have up to 15MBit!!

In the past the decos we're connected over Ethernet. This is not working anymore!

In addition I didn't find any changes in the fw except it kills the Ethernet.

Hello again @kiliclat and all, thank you all for the detailed info you've provided as for now and the issue is addressed already, we have removed the 1.4.7 version from the official website. We will soon fix and release a new firmware later.

 

As for those who encounter the same issue that the satellite Deco P7 nodes will disconnect from the main P7 (AP mode) after upgrading the firmware to this 1.4.7 Build 20200820 Rel. 60546 version, it is suggested to downgrade the firmware to the previous 1.4.2 version as a workaround, and below is the guidance:

Thanks a lot and sorry for any inconvenience caused on this~

Please leave me a message if I haven't seen your post and your issue is quite urgent!

Same problems here!

Installed the update this morning, and only the main unit worked; every other connected unit had a pulsing red LED-light. My main unit is also connected in AP-mode.

I downgraded to 1.4.2 and everything works again. The other P7-units seem to have version 1.4.7 installed, but my main unit is now 1.4.2.

I will wait to upgrade the main unit until we have some feedback from TP-Link.

Hey, firmware dev team? How long we will be beta testers? We reported an issue - no feedback.  Maybe you just need to hide firmware for now from the site?

What a shame that you do not test your firmware. Such good hardware with so poor support. So many basic things are missing, so upset as a customer and for sure will never buy anything from this vendor.

@Lexivienna Thanks for the heads up. I was already exciting assuming most of my problems would go away with this fw update but I came to the communities before clicking on the update button. @TP_LINK @TP-link_de , if this fw have such problems, it would really make sense having it removed from the downloads area

 

thanks
