Model: Deco M4  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version:

Second time i open the thread, the other vanished.

 

Is there any way to backup the M4, i mean you drop it it breaks and you buy a new one. Can i restore all settings, reservations port forwarding etc. ? 

 

thanks,

Vassilis

Good point, unfortunately, if you have one Deco, then you will need to redo the settings.

 

In a multi Deco layout, the main Deco would be the one wired to the modem, and the satellite unit would be any not the main Deco. However, for a single Deco unit, it can just be referred to as the router, no different than a typical wireless router since there is only one of it.

When you posted the original thread you were at our global forums so your post is here: https://community.tp-link.com/en/home/forum/topic/233350

 

This is the US region-based forum, as the URL has US rather than EN.

 

With respect to your questions, you are not able to back up the settings. They are saved across the other nodes. So if the main node breaks you can swap that with one of the satellite nodes. If a satellite breaks, adding a replacement will be updated with the current settings.
