Hi, I have UK version RE450 V2.0 bought in Singapore. I'm confusing which firmware version to choose to update.

My room have very few wall sockets, some places are akward and not very ideal.
I found the best sweet spot for speed boost and overall located at toilet / bathroom.
And... I help my wifi extender to "wear" a sock to prevent humidity / steam, I know very weird.


1) Will the humidity cause the wifi extender spoil while taking hot shower, etc...

 

2) Do I need to extend the external antenna to work properly?


3) During setup, I can't find for 2.4GHz in list, but it works well on the 5GHz setup.

@Jayson8628 Hello, 

 

If your device is of UK version, please use UK website firmware RE450(UK)_V2__200914 Latest version in UK website

If RE does not see router's 2.4Ghz, you could change a different 2.4Ghz wifi channel for router to a channel between 1-11. 

 

Too much humidity that will affect lifetime of your device, and here is operating humidity for your reference; 

Operating Humidity: 10%~90% non-condensing

 

Unfolding antennas will help with the WIFi  signal, you could have a test in you WiFi  environment.
