Model: TL-WPA8630P KIT  
Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version: 3.0.0 Build 20200612 Rel.69906

Hi All

 

I am the proud owner of that useful kit since a couple of days.

However as i was configuring it i was expecting that the Wifi module was implementing WPA3 which apparently it is not.

I need it as my ISP Router has now moved to WPA3 (and all my devices are supporting it)

 

I have then looked on the download section of the TP Link website to find if there are any new firmware and when browsing for that KIT(https://www.tp-link.com/fr/support/download/tl-wpa8635p-kit/) it does not show me any firmware available.

 

I have then looked deeper and found out that in fact the KIT is made with those 2 elements (correct me guys if i am wrong):

-TL-WPA8631P 3.0 (the Wifi module)

-TL-PA8015P 3.0 (the powerline extender module)

 

I have then looked directly into the download section of the TL-WPA8631P 3.0 module and found that there is apparently a firmware that i could use (TL-WPA8631P(EU)_V3_210514)

 

Unfortunately when i try to upload it either via the admin webpage or via the tpPLC utiity; both are giving me an error ("Failed! Incorrect file")

 

Does it mean that TL-WPA8631P 3.0 is not the same product from TL-WPA8635P KIT (FR)?

Where can i grab the proper firmware then?

 

By the way when i want to post that message; it asks me to select a model. The drop down menu does not show the TL-WPA8635P KIT but others.

I have used the TL-WPA8630P KIT instead for the sake of posting (i am not talking about that one obviously)

 

Thanks in advance
