@Kedare 

 

You are correct. EasyMesh can only extend the main wireless network or build up a mesh network via Ethernet Backhaul. It doesn't extend the Guest Network or IoT Network at this moment. This has been forwarded as a feature request to our developers for consideration. 

 

This latest official firmware has added support for Alexa as stated in the firmware release notes. Can you please confirm if you can add the main C6 to Alexa by temporarily powering off the satellite C6 and RE315 from the network and only leaving the main C6?

Hey guys. I have come across 2 problems. With archer c6 4.0 please fix. 1. Unable to disable dynamic dns. The only option is tplink. I want to disable it completely. I don't want remote access of any kind. Going old school. 2. Group key interval is set to 0 by default for some reason. It should at least be 3600. Changing it greatly improved by speed and removed any issues

  @Bigboobselephan 

 

If I am not mistaken, the two things you've mentioned are just like that on all of TP-Link's modern wireless routers.

@Kedare Is your C6 V4 an EU version or a US version? I guess the latest official firmware for the US may not be available at the moment.

 

Did you install the firmware via online upgrade or via local upgrade?

@balakrishnan111 You're correct. As far as I can confirm, the latest official firmware for the US version is not available yet. But I believe it'll be available soon.
