Archer C7 Firmware Upgrade Problem
2017-09-03 21:05:36
Model : Archer C7 AC1750

Hardware Version : v2

Firmware Version : 3.15.1 Build 160511 Rel.62683n

ISP : Charter Communications

Ok... So I have an Archer C7 AC1750 that I am running the beta fimware ( 3.15.1 Build 160511 Rel.62683n ) due to the killer wireless bug.

Now I am trying to upgrade to new released firmware ( Archer C7(US)_V2_170525 ) that fixes the killer bug.

When I try to upgrade I get the message: "The selected file is in wrong format, please select another."

How can I upgrade from the beta firmware?

Thank you,
Dean Price

I have the EU version of C7 v2, I tried multiple firmwares,and I think I've seen this message when something wasn't right with the file name (like version number with dots)

So first you can try to simply rename the file removing special characters and/or shorten it.

If that doesn't work, pls check the link below:
http://forum.tp-link.com/showthread.php?81462-How-to-recovery-the-router-when-you-bricked-it

In this case, you can rename the firmware file to
"ArcherC7v2_tp_recovery.bin"
and upload it by using the above method.
might not be obvious at first, but it isn't complicated at all, only a few things to keep in mind :)

The router flashes itself automatically, but it's slower than regular firmware upgrades
Be patient and watch the router LEDs to know when it reboots itself.
When the process is finished and you can login, power cycle the router, and you're done.
