Model: Archer MR600  
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 1.3.0 0.9.1 v0001.0 Build 210208 Rel.61056n

MR600 V2 cannot detect band 8. I have used MR600 V1 before with beta firmware to lock band and I can lock band 3 + band 8 no problem. But today I bought MR600 V2 which said can lock band already but when i search it does not detect band 8. 

On V1 beta firmware no problem can lock 3 + 8. My phone also rooted and no problem detecting band 8. So I am sure V2 latest firmware does have problem. Is there any firmware that I can use that can lock band 3 + 8 ? PLEASE I really need band 8 that's why I buy MR600 V2 but when I setup the first time, i notice this issue. I am very sure the coverage does have band 8 here because i have been using it all this time. So it is not a coverage related issue. It is V2 latest firmware. PLEASE fix asap.

In the list the V2 does not reveal the band 8 of your sim carrier, so you can not select it. It seems to me that the selectable bands are 3 and 7.
In V1 with beta firmware, you can select any band but no check is done and it is not said that what you select works.

Hi,  There might be some differences in the band selection mechanism on the beta firmware of Archer MR600 v1 and the official firmware of MR600 V2.

On the V1, The beta firmware would list all the supported bands that hardware is capable of no matter which SIM is installed.

While on the V2, it would only list the available bands that both the hardware is capable of and the SIM is supported according to the distance and signal strength of the cell tower.

The latest version installed in the MR600 V2 00000002, (last purchase in Italy)
is 1.4.0 0.9.1 v0001.0 Build 210727 Rel.33453n
The version you write is the latest available on the site.
I don't know if your problem depends on this (since you claim that band 8 is received in your area).
It's very strange the behavior of Tp-Link! I also come from MR600 V.1 with beta firmware.
