Deco APP 2.6.x version (iOS and Android)
Some customers may found that they cannot change the Deco working mode from Router to Access Point, or vice versa. There are 2 cases:
With the upgrade of the Deco APP, the alteration of operation mode needs to be under the local network since 2.6.x, which means you are required to connect the Wi-Fi of Deco to change the operation mode.
You are connected to the Deco network, but still failed to change the Deco working mode, the option is grayed out.
Check and ensure your phone is connected to the Deco network. Try to disable the Wi-Fi, then enable it on the phone to confirm.
Make sure there is no VPN connection on the phone.
Kill the Deco app, restart the phone, re-launch the Deco app, check again if you can change the working mode.
If none of these works, send an app log to the support engineers for further investigation with the subject ‘TP-Link Community- [Forum ID 262816] Fail to switch the Deco working mode’.
