@TP-Link Upgrade works flawless

Wired Internetspeed is half of provider speed (tested with deco app 500 mbps, provider speed 1gbit)

Was with fw 1.5.3 the same

@TP-Link Thank you for releasing this. It is working good so far.

 

On my side I haven't noticed any impact on ISP bandwidth, and speed tests are looking good.

Just had to reboot and run network optimization once because one of the units was ignoring the selected source choice.

Besides the much awaited and needed source selection feature, all other feature were a great addition!

 

On a side note, being able to fully manage the network without the app would be very useful.

Looking forwared for the public release!

 

PS: running 6 units here

@Seb80  Hi, I have not been informed of the estimated date for M9 Plus yet.

 

@Holger 

Were you trying to say, after updating the 1.6.0, the wired speed from main Deco is still 500m/s, half of the bandwidth from the provider, no improvement comparing with 1.5.3?

If yes, Did Deco work on the wireless router or access point?

Since the current issue is not related to firmware 1.6.0 anymore, would you be kind to start a new thread and provide me some screenshots about the speed test results, from Deco, from the ISP modem?

@TP-Link working perfectly on my M5's, would be great to get the same functionality on the M9's. 

 

As previously noted, once the manual source had been set - the device needed a reboot. It's trippled the download speed from my 3rd floor M5 😃 Which is now routing via my 2nd floor M9 to my 1st floor M5 😃 

 

Thank you for yours and the dev teams work :-)

@TP-Link After upgrading to firmware 1.6.0 I am having trouble with my wifi enabled treadmill not connecting. I shows up as an connected client (192.168.0.105) in the Deco app but the treadmill sais it is not connected. I have checked the log and see some errors but I dont understand what it says. I see that it has something to do with the treadmill connection because of the ip address (192.168.0.105). Here is some of the log.

Updated my 5x Deco M5 to the 1.6 firmware.

 

Unfortunately even when selecting the connection preference to the closest deco devices are still connecting to decos alot further away.

 

Rebooted both all the decos and the device's made no difference. Here is a TPLINK tapo plug and a wyze cam. Both ignoring the much closer and preferred deco

@Lordvader 

Hi, the feedback is very valued for us and May I know the model number of your Tapo plug and wyze cam?

Would powering off/on these smart devices make any difference?

By the way, I would like to follow up on your case by email and please have a check of your email box.

Thank you very much.

@RoarE 

Hi, Did this issue just start updating the firmware 1.6.0?

Would restarting the treadmill and Deco make any difference?

By the way, may I know the model number of the treadmill?
