Model: Deco M9 Plus  
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 1.2.11 Build 20190926 Rel. 55727

Today I added a new Deco unit to my existing network.

 

The existing 3 units are all on Firmware Version 1.6.2 Build 20230906 Rel. 80158.

From what I read here units running this outdated Firmware Version can only be updated via the Upgrade Tool to version 1.4.0.

But when I use the Upgrade Tool it locates all 4 devices so I am not sure as to how to proceed since installing Firmware Version 1.4.0 on the 3 existing units would be a downgrade.

 

So my question is will the Upgrade Tool online upgrade the 'new' unit from Firmware Version 1.2.11 to 1.4.0 and ignore the 3 existing units which are on Firmware Version 1.6.2?

If not then how should I proceed in order to successfully upgrade the 'new' unit tot Firmware Version 1.4.0?

 

Looking forward to your responses.

Kind regards, CL

You should try the Upgrade Tool. I don't think it is capable of downgrading M9 Plus firmware, but even if it does - this should not be a problem. Starting with firmware version 1.4 M9 Plus can be updated through Deco app.

Which means, after using Upgrade Tool just open Update Deco page in Deco app and all Deco units that are on firmware 1.4 will be upgraded to the latest 1.6 firmware.

  @Alexandre. Thank you very much for your advice.

As you thought the existing Deco units did not downgrade. The 'new' unit was successfully updated via the Upgrade Tool to Firmware Version 1.4.0. After that initial update I managed to update that unit to the latest Firmware Version via the Deco App.

Kind regards, CL
