Hardware Version : Not Clear

Firmware Version :

ISP :

HI,

I've just purchased an Archer D2 and its firmware is: 0.6.0 0.7 v003e.0 Build 140928 Rel.38569n.

The latest firmware available is: Archer_D2_V1_150921.zip which unzips to: Archer_D2v1_0.8.0_1.2_up_boot(150921)_2015-09-21_10.59.54.bin

I presume the only things of interest in these file names is "140928" and "150921" therefore the downloaded version is a later version than the one in my modem.

Is my presumption correct?

If it is where can I find the fixes / improvements in the latest version to my current version?

TIA - Peter

Hello,
you can find the information here
http://www.tp-link.com/en/download/Archer-D2.html#Firmware

theoretically the latest firmwares should be better, but in fact on 02/09/15 they have set up a new web interface that removes many features (firewall settings, ...). Too bad.

Thanks for that and I've loaded the latest firmware and the modem still works - bonus!!

A couple of thing I'm interested in that seem to be missing from the new web interface are:

1) the modem logs - particularly when my internet connection goes down.

2) the ability to save and restore configuration settings.

Do you know where I can find these or are you aware that they are no longer supported?

Again, thanks for your response. Peter

Hello,
I think that you can find:
modem logs: in Advanced tab > system tools (scroll down the left tab) > System log
save and restore configuration settings : Advanced tab > system tools > Backup & restore.
Hope it helps.
