@mehdi_08 

Hi, the firmware with OneMesh on/off switch has no ETA yet.

The hidden SSID has been tested with no security risk. For more details about this hidden network, please refer to

Found Archer C7 v5 or Archer A7 v5 is emitting hidden

In the meanwhile, I will pin your post on the top and if someone had the same request, please feel free to comment below with the following information:

1. the model number and hardware version of your TP-Link device.

2.  Why do you request this feature?

 

And for wireless routers and 3G/4G routers, some of them already support disable OneMesh and pleaser refer to the following links:

WiFi routers:Disable Onemesh Hidden network on Onemesh Routers

3G/4G routers: Disable Hidden SSID on the 3G/4G Routers

 

Thank you very much.

Seeking a solution to the same on the VDSL modems.  This is a common need out there in the market, that other vendors will take advantage of.

Hi David,

I have the same issue and would like to disable one mesh and have a vr400 v3 and have no desire for one mesh.

Thanks very much for the option to test beta but the file link is invalid.
I have updated to the latest stable available on the website.

Many thanks in advance 

Pete

  @David-TP thanks for the test firmware. I have loaded this and disabled the mesh and also turned off the WiFi.

 

The device is still emitting >100,000uW/m2 of RFR when measured with an RF meter so the mesh off new feature does not appear to be working, or the WiFi off feature doesn't work. It is hard to tell which.

 

I also notice that the WiFi on/off physical button only works ~10% of the time.  I have observed this on several VR400's.  This makes it pretty unusable in an environment where users want to only enable the WiFi when needed.

 

 

Comparing the VR400 to the TP-Link C7, the mesh off feature does work on the C7 as tested the same way.  The WiFi on/off physical button also works more reliably (with a 3 second press).

 

Please let me know if I can help with any more testing or information at all.

 

I appreciate you looking at this and making the changes.  It will help you sell more of these devices.

 

Regards,

Kent.
