Model: Archer C6
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: EU

A lot of users would like to have the ability to disable OneMesh feature, thus stop broadcasting hidden networks that are visible even if the device is in AP mode (OneMesh not supported).

This inability increases unnecessary wireless emissions, even when OneMesh is not used/configured by the user.

Thanks. This feature will be added on the next firmware for the Archer C6, which won't be long. BTW, this has been available for the Archer A7 already.

@terziyski  Hi -- it's end of  May, and no upgrade firmware has shown up.

 

Getting rid of the hidden channel is quite important here.

 

The beta firmware referenced elsewhere does not work on my v2 A6 -- reports 'wrong format'.   Maybe because it has 'eur' in the name, maybe indicating a different router?

 

In any case, can this firmware that stops the problem be released now?

 

Thanks...

For Archer C6EU V2: https://static.tp-link.com/2020/202010/20201030/ArcherC6v2_eu-up-ver1-3-6-P1[20201030-rel60104].zip

For Archer A6EU V2: https://static.tp-link.com/2020/202010/20201030/ArcherA6v2_eu-up-ver1-3-6-P1[20201030-rel60104].zip

 

These are beta FW releases.
A next stable FW release (with OneMesh button added) has been released for the US region - refer to the Kevin's original post.

It's available on the official TP-Link FW download page as well.

@terziyski  Thanks very kindly!

 

The Beta firmware (v2US) is installed, and works very well

- once I turned Mesh off, no more no-name beacon, which may have been troubling others around here

- 152 Mbps on my iPad Air 4, the fastest kit I have for the receiving end -- and that through a VPN (Mullvad WireGuard)

 

I have to say, after 'some  others', this Tp-Link A6  has been just the nicest in all regards. It feels and performs as very well designed.

 

Thank you, and especially so, for coming right back,

Clive
