If you have experienced an issue of disconnecting or slowness on the 4G Wi-Fi router’s network due to the auto band selection, Please download and install the following beta firmware on the router to manually fix the band

Please be sure you have read The Beta Test Agreement before proceeding!

TL-MR100(EU)V1 supported via latest official firmware

 

Note: For MR600 v1/v2, Please note that not all combinations of the 4G bands are supported in 4G+ mode. Only when the router and the SIM card support the same combinations of 4G band in 4G+ mode, the bands might be aggregated successfully.

 

Besides from the beta firmware, it is also planned to release the official firmware for Band selection. Keep an eye on the official website or router web GUI for the new updates. 

 

If you are not sure about how to select the band manually on the router web interface, check the instructions below:

The firmware for MR600(EU)_V1 in your message is version 1.1.9. But I have already installed version 1.2.0, which is from May 2020 (1.2.0 0.9.1 v0001.0 Build 200511 Rel.44954n).

Why does a new firmware version have a lower version number?

Hi, the beta firmware version was provided prior to the latest official one, so this band selection is no included in the official yet.

I'm afraid we cannot provide you the beta firmware to manually select the band on the MR200(EU) v2.1, sorry.

Band selection settings made in beta firmware should remain set if you then update to release. Been using it that way for a while now. You'll need to revert to beta to change them of course.

 

This beta fixes the SMS problems so I'll stick with it for now.

Since I upgraded to the new beta the router (MR600) has locked up multiple times in two days, only solved by a reboot, so I've reverted to the old beta firmware. I'm beginning to think it's simply unsalvageable. I wish they'd release a stable firmware with band selection, but I won't get my hopes up.
