Model: TL-MR6400  
Hardware Version: V5
Firmware Version: v5

Hi, 

I was unable to find a setting to manually force the use of a specific 4G band in my modem.

For example, sometimes the router uses the band 8 instead of 1/3/40 which are much more faster than the 8 one, resulting in a drastic reduce in network speed.  Band 3 in my country Indonesia can produce 30 Mbps meanwhile the band 8 only reaches 4 Mbps. It makes me and my friends very frustated with this situation.

I know for sure that with router of other brand like H is possible to set this option. Is it possible to enable it with next firmware update? 
We are in indonesia very need this feature, I hope TP-Link can release this feature in a few weeks forward. Don't take much time. Please push forward this issue to the software department ASAP.

 

Thanks

@Keripik_Kinta 

Thank you very much for your time and patience.

We do have the plan to release the firmware which supports manual band selection.

But the estimated date is still not clear.

For more updated news, please keep close attention to our official websites;

 

Thanks a lot.

Sorry for keeping you waiting, while we still have no ETA for the new firmware that supports band selection, it's expected to be released later this year, please kindly wait and pay your attention to the official website.

@Kevin_Z 

Hello


I just purchased MR6400 to replace the small huawei modem provided by my network operator.

Firware is up to date (1.1.0 0.9.1 v0001.0 Build 200511 Rel.43036n)

 

It’s all good until the speed drops dramatically, and after digging a little bit I see there is the same problem for almost all your modem... it constantly switch to the worst band (20) and there is no way to force it to the fastest bands (1/3/5).

 

Do we really have to beg on this forum for month until you finally realize how big this problem is?

How hard is it for you to implement that while you have done the exact same thing with other modems like the MR600?

 

I can’t believe what’s going on. It’s really a shame.

 

Please provide a firmware with the option to select band asap, without it the product is 99% useless.

Maybe as an in-between, you could make a firmware which simply doesn’t use the band 20?

 

Sincerely
Josh
