This Article Applies to:

TP-Link Routers that supports Onemesh, such as Archer C6/A6/C7/A7/AX10/AX20/AX6000/AX11000, etc.

 

Background:

Some customers report their Onemesh routers are emitting a hidden network, which makes them confused and nervous as they cannot turn it off manually on the router web GUI.

 

The hidden wireless network is used to build up the mesh wireless network system, and it cannot be detected by the common wireless devices. You can refer to this article for more details:

https://community.tp-link.com/en/home/stories/detail/728

 

Just like the existing Deco mesh package products, the specific hidden network with high-intensity random password can guarantee the security of the network. So no worries.

 

Available Solutions:

However, if you still want to disable the Onemesh hidden network on the router, update the router firmware to the latest, and you will get the option to switch it off.

 

Models below have already added the Onemesh option on the latest official firmware, which can be downloaded manually from the TP-Link website, or updated via the router web GUI / Tether app:

Archer A7_V5_201029 and newer versions

Archer C7_V5_201030 and newer versions

Archer A6(US)_V2_210226 and later versions

Archer C6(US)_V2_210226 and later versions

 

Models below have a beta firmware to disable Onemesh:

Archer C6(EU)_V2_20201030

Archer A6(EU)_V2_20201030

Note:

1. Please check the device label to verify the country code and hardware version of your device first, and choose the correct file to download and install.

2. For those who experience an unstable 2.4G wireless disconnection issue, it is also suggested to install this beta firmware to disable Onemesh, then monitor the connectivity.

 

For other models that support Onemesh, there will be new official firmware to add the Onemesh option in the near future. Keep an eye on the official website or router web GUI for the new updates. We will update here also if the new models add the feature later.

 

Note: We as always strongly recommend our customer upgrade their TP-Link devices to the latest official firmware, you can try the beta firmware posted by our TP-Link Admins/Officials unless the official firmware doesn't resolve the issue you experience.

I saw that there's already a stable C6/A6 FW with an option to disable OneMesh for the US region:

Archer a6us-up-ver1-1-8-P1[20210226-rel34930].bin - here

Archer c6us-up-ver1-1-8-P1[20210226-rel34930].bin - here

 

If that's correct, does one need to use the beta FW or just upgrade to the latest stable above ?

And the logical question - when the stable version is going to be released for the EU region ?

Thank you very much for pointing out that there is already a new official firmware for the Archer C6/A6(US)_V2 on the official website, I will update the OP. 

 

Regarding the new official firmware for the Archer C6/A6(EU)_V2, I'm sorry I cannot provide an ETA. I guess it will be soon if that for the US firmware is already. I will also update the OP once the EU version is available.

Ensure you've installed the correct firmware on your Archer C6, then login to its web GUI, go to Advanced > Onemesh, there you will see an Onemesh on/off switch, you can choose Disable then.

OneMesh is not available when the router is in AP mode - Q7/A7.

@Kevin_Z 

Hi, will a JP version of this beta be made available soon? I have tried multiple drivers and other fixes for weeks for my T4U but I suspect the 5Ghz issues I am having are due to my C6 router. Please let me know if you require any further info. Thanks and I'll keep an eye out.

@Kevin_Z I'm finding it really difficult to understand why the EU firmware has been in limbo for so much time, still no release in sight. Hell, if you removed that annoying TP-Link Beta background image that you plastered all over the firmware, maybe it wouln't bother so much, because I doubt yoiu're thinking of changinging anything else at all...

Seeriously, what are you guys taking over there?

 

What's the deal here, though? US consumers deserve some special treatment that the rest of the world doesn't? What's the reasoning behind publishing an official firmware update for US routers and only publishing "TP-Link Beta" pseudo-unfinished bull to the rest of us?
