Hi,

Brand new VR600v2 installed on ADSL with an IPSEC VPN to a remote site. I want to add a static route to point to a second router on the same site but the wizard has nothing in the "Select WAN Interface" drop down. Consequently I can't add a static route for my other router.

I tried changing the WAN from PPPoA to PPPoE, but that made no difference.

There appear to be no updates available on the Australian TP-Link website for the VR600 v2, and when trying the firmware check in the router itself it says there are non available.

Anybody else had this issue?

Sean

Hello Sean, I've contact TP and confirm this is a bug. I think they will push an update to fix this problem. I suggest you can contact to the technical support team and see whether there is a solution right now.

Thanks, Pacoo. I have sent them an email. Hopefully there is an updated firmware available.

They have sent the beta firmware and I have installed it. The WAN interface now shows up in the static route page, so I can add routes.

There are a couple of other minor niggles, though, and I have asked if my particular niggle can be addressed.

The beta firmware turn around time was quite quick (compared with say Cisco/Linksys)!
