Hello @Sartus 

The download zip file needs to be unzipped or extracted, and you will see the firmware (BIN.) file in it.  I tested and could unzip it on a Windows, you may try a different Unzipped tool like WinRar or a different computer and see if that helps.

Hello @Sartus 

The bin.file itself is the firmware file for wireless powerline unit and can't be opened, after you login the web page of TL-WPA8631P, try to upload the bin. file directly.

Hello @Sartus 

You could refer to OneMsh compatibility list here, if the model is not listed that means the model does support OneMesh yet.

Please check related thread discussing on this topic here : OneMesh Availability for powerline products
