Via the web interface on my router it says :

Archer VR900 v2 00000000

0.1.0 0.9.1 v0069.0 Build 160525 Rel.38143n

however on the TP Link site it says :

Archer VR900 (EU) V2 Build 160721 offered as the original and only firmware !!

I am confused , my router says build 160525 and TP Link site says Build 160721.

I have tried to check this via the interface in the router and it says I am up to date ?

So what is correct , or am I reading it wrong ?

Does the online interface not work that checks and allows you to update the firmware or do I have to manually download the firmware from the site and apply it ?

Anybody with any ideas on this ?

I don't want to kill my new router by trying the wrong firmware but on the other hand if there is a firmware update I assume it will improve my router's performance or security.

I am in UK on TalkTalk VDSL line 80/20 Mbps .

Hi Uutommi,

So do I but the bit that worries me is I do not have warranty , so I need a definite YES before screwing up my new toy .

The bit that worries me is this :

Archer VR900 (EU) V2 Build 160721 offered as the original and only firmware !! but mine is Build 160525 that's where it doesn't add up .

I think I will wait and see if there is anyone that can verify this is good.

I assume the firmware Build 160525 ( means 25th May 2016 ) and Build 160721 ( means 21st July 2016 )

Just got a reply from TP link :

And the firmware is not latest, could you please upgrade the firmware to double check:

If can please download the firmware in the below link:
http://uk.tp-link.com/download/Archer-VR900_V2.html#Firmware

Then upgrade the firmware:

Firmware updated
2017-08-03 02:16:46
Just an update on the firmware issues , did a config file backup and bit the bullet , downloaded firmware from :

Then upgrade the firmware:
http://tp-link.com/en/faq-652.html

If can please download the firmware in the below link:
http://uk.tp-link.com/download/Archer-VR900_V2.html#Firmware


All went fine , didn't even need to restore config file , all my settings stayed the same , couldn't really see any changes

so I assume it was bugs etc that did not really affect me.

Got a couple of errors on the upload and from looking at Telnet output these are from FEC errors on the upload ,

which are error correction but ones that have been corrected so not a major worry and it seems only a couple extra every

hour , during mild usage .It seems that the Upload errors are from the " ATUCCRCErrors=3 " when viewing Statposter results.


Here are my results , seem like quite a good line ( just had BT put me a new dropline and MK4 Master box in aswell )
