Model: Archer C7  
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 180114

Model: Archer C7
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 3.15.3 Build 180114 Rel.39265n
My Archer c7 v2 (CA) router has the wrong region firmware installed.


It currently has version 3.15.3 Build 180114 Rel.39265n installed which I believe is the US version.
I want to fix this and upgrade to the latest CA firmware (Archer C7(CA)_V2_180305)
When I try, I get this error:
Error code: 18005
Upgrade unsuccessfully because the version of the upgraded file was incorrect. Please check the file name.
 

The bottom of my router says Model: Archer C7(CA). How do I get the correct region firmware to install?

hi Kevin Im confused with instructions. I applied firmware Build 180114 to my TPLINK Archer C7 v2 and it was successful, the router is working fine However when I attempt to apply firmware Archer C7(CA)_V2_180305 it gave the following error: "Error code: 18005, Upgrade unsuccessfully because the version of the upgraded file was incorrect. Please check the file name." Im still not clear what exactly needs to be done to apply 180305 successfully. Appreciate your response thanks
