Model: RE650  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.0.6 Build 20180719 Rel. 36926

When I log in to the RE650, it tells me that the firmware version is 1.0.6 Build 20180719 Rel. 36926.

 

When I visit the RE650 firmware support page, I can find no version number that looks anything like this. I see:

  • RE650(UK)_V1_201112 Is this meant to be a version number?
  • 2020-12-17 is the publication, which is not shown by the RE650
  • It shows that this is for RE650(UK) 1.0, but the RE650 says it is the RE650 (not RE650(UK))

 

When I download the firmware file, there is a binary file with the name: re650v1_en-up-ver1-0-9-P1[20201112-rel66232].bin

This suggests it is firmware version 1.0.9, but I see no confirmation anywhere.

 

If this is indeed the correct firmware, where can I find a changelog?

@TP-Link Thank you for that.

 

But is RE650(UK)_V1_201112 later than that reported by the RE650: version: 1.0.6 Build 20180719 Rel. 36926 ? How can I tell?
