@Pito_ 

Hi, currently, 6*M4 are on three different firmware, and could you please try to update all of them to the 1.5.0 build20210804.

Since this firmware has not been uploaded to the cloud server, it could not be updated automatically and we might need to manually upload this firmware.

(I also see that you mentioned before you can not update, but since one M4 is on the 0804 firmware already, it is suggested to log in to each Deco's web UI via its IP address and upload the firmware one by one. The IP address of each Deco could be found on the Deco APP.)

As for the poor performance mentioned before, could you please provide more details about it, like constantly dropping the connection or very low speed?

Could you please also send me a picture of the network topology of the whole mesh system?

Thank you very much.

@TP-Link Hi There,
Just wondering will Deco M4 be able to get WPA3 updates in the future and will there be an update to enable direct speedtest from Deco M4 itself and not thru third party like on the apps which will allow direct measurement of ISP Internet Speed.

@TP-Link thanks for sharing the beta firmware. I have two M4R decos and it fixed the download speed, we use Apple devices and the speed on the mbpro (2020) got up to more than 200Mbps on the fast.com website and the mobile devices got from 50Mbps to a sustained 120Mbps.

 

I tested it on the rest of the smart TVs and also in the cinema room where the main deco is located and all content comes from an Amazon fireTV.

 

So I can't wait to get the new official update.

 

Thanks!, you made my day!.

 

PS. We are adapting our house as I'm in a wheelchair and I thought that I would like to update the setup to the latest home devices, which do you recommend? will the solution pair with the current setup?.

 

Thanks again :-)

Still no news for New firmware ?

 

Beta firmware on August and it's mid november.

 

I installed 3 in my parents home and was amazed. 

 

Bought 5 for our own home. 

 

Told my mother in Law to buy 3 for her School.

 

I'm starting to maybe regret it. Support ain't that great...

@Camsheim 

Hi, the new firmware has been released already.

During the firmware release process, there might be some delays in some regions.

And here is a new official firmware link if you like:

Deco M4 V1& V2 1.5.2

 

Modifications and Bug Fixes:
1. Optimized the IPTV/VLAN feature.
2. Added Network Optimization feature.
3. Added the switch of "ignore Ping from WAN".
4. Added the feature of changing the owner account.
5. Add the "Service name" and "Access name" options when the Internet Connection Type is PPPoE.
6. Fixed the issue that Port Forwarding doesn't take effect in some cases.
7. Optimized the problem that Kasa devices can't be added through Deco APP in some cases.
8. Fixed the problem that Zoom applications are banned by the Pay-to-Surf category under Parental Control.
9. Fixed some other bugs and optimized the overall performance.

Notes:
1. This firmware can't be downgraded to the previous 1.4.x version.
2. Please update your Deco APP to the latest version for the new features.
3. If there are other Deco models in your Deco network, you may miss some new features till other models release updates in the near future.

 

Thank you very much.

@TP-Link This is occurring for me on S4/E4 units also. Is there a patch I can use to help?

@TP-Link Is it okay that I still don't see the update? All my M4s are still at version 1.4.3.
