Model: TL-WPA8631P KIT  
Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version:

MR200 v5 is working fine.

Pairing of the extenders seems to be fine

Getting the extender on mesh to extend the wifi network does not work - error message is that the router does not support mesh (it is v5 which should)

@Solla-topee 

Hi, I can confirm this has resolved the problem.  But it shows as a Beta release.  Will I be informed when a proper release is ready ?

@gpweston 

WA8631P official firmware may take longer time as I did not hear about a recent release, but we will forward to related team to expertise the process.

We would update on the above thread if  official firmware is released so you could subscribe it, and you will get an email if there is something new up or you could keep an eye on our official website.
