  @Fae 

 

Im having issues with 1.2.1 stable and the end-of-july Beta on my ER605 v1.6 regarding VPN server functionality

 

I get very intermittent and flaky VPN connectivity to the ER605 from remote devices over both L2TP and PPTP, sometimes they refuse to even see the server is running, and system logs on the ER605 seem to indicate no connection attempts were recieved. Other times they will connect but there is no traffic over the VPN.

 

Flashing back to 1.2.0 stable from January resolves this immediately with no changes whatsoever on the remote devices, but i lose the DHCP and Stealth fixes.

 

Note - this did not happen on the very first 1.1.1 beta that had the stealth fix

Owner of: ER605 v1, ER605 v2, ER7206 v1, SG1024DE v4.2 and AX53 v1

Sorry to hear that you have some trouble with the VPN connectivity. To better assist you, could you please start a new thread and provide more details including the network diagram, the vital settings and problem phenomenon so that we can look into the issue further? Thank you in advance for your great cooperation and support!

When can we expect this beta to be released to stable? I'm wondering whether to use the beta or wait until stable as the lack of IP reservation is causing havoc

  @NotYoNetwork Thanks. I bit the bullet and upgraded to the beta. It works ok. I had to manually reconnect the WiFi connected devices and physically unplug and replug the ethernet ones for it to work (rebooting did not help). But now all is working ok.

  @movable. 

I just converted back to 1.1.1. After a reboot or off/on my wireless devices got a total wrong ip adress (see https://community.tp-link.com/en/business/forum/topic/582288 )

It seems to be a DHCP issue, here is a solution post for your case.

  @Fae Thank you Fae!

Just installed it and powered-off the router. After that al the devices got a correct IP address.

 

The software for the TL-ER605 in the first post of this discussion should better be pulled and referred to the new post because of mix-ups (like by myself!).

Thanks for your kind feedback! To avoid further mix-ups, I've updated this solution post with the newer beta firmware. Cheers!

  @Fae I am receiving this error when I try to flash ER605(UN)_v1_1.2.2_Build 20220902 (Beta)  bin to ER605 v2.0 with 2.0.1 Build 20220223 Rel.68551.

 

Gateway upgrade failed: The upgrade file is invalid. Please select a correct file.

 

added: Is there a v2 fw i can try? i'm facing the same issue about 3 tapo cameras randomly aquiring IPs from the dhcp pool even though i've assigned them a static IP.

 

nevermind. i found v2 bin. thanks

 

Any help is appreciated.
