Hi, does this new beta fimware finally allow ping to WAN interface? It would be useful to track home connection's availability.

Hi, yes, you can enable the WAN ping on your Deco app (Network->WAN-IPv4).

Any way to downgrade from 1.5.0 to 1.4.7 or 1.4.2?

The web portal doesn't accept the downgrade for M5 HW V2.

I also need to downgrade from 1.5. I think this version is unstable.

@dafon5 hi. I have downloaded and used the beta from the day it was released here and have not experienced any issues whatsoever (performance and stability are identical to 1.4.7 plus the new features).

 

so I am curious - what are your symptoms? are you using it in AP or Router mode?

 

I have been using the beta on 2 different (separate) networks with 3 x Deco M5 each, and in both cases they are in AP mode.

Ever since upgrading to this version ( that shouldnt exist since 1.4.9 is the oficial beta apparently), the cloud service keeps on failing, the decos go offline frequently and the speeds dont go over 150Mbps on a 500Mbps connection. I had to go back using my deco M4R pair since, on the SAME setup and positions, the second node reached 300Mbps easily (throught two walls at 10m distance)!

 

M5 Deco is an expensive mistake to buy..

@dafon5 it would really help if you share your setup/config :

1. are you using AP or Router mode?

2. are you using wireless or ethernet backhaul?

 

this way folks on this forum can confirm having similar issues with a similar setup or the contrary.

 

as I mentioned in my previous message - my very stable setup is based on 2 separate networks (2 different locations) with 3 x Deco M5 each, in AP mode using ethernet backhaul
