Deco X20 V1.2 Firmware updates?

Deco X20 V1.2 Firmware updates?
Deco X20 V1.2 Firmware updates?
2022-02-14 00:18:42
Model: Deco X20
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.5.1 Build 20210204 Rel. 50738

How has my Deco X20 V1.2 not had a firmware update in nearly a year?

 

I've never owned a router that does not receive semi regular firmware updates and this is a fairly new device. 

 

Surely it needs security updates? What about simple features like picking the Satellite a device connects to?

 

Is there a beta floating around or have the earlier versions (I see there is now a v2 and v2.6) of the x20 been abandoned?

Hi, welcome to the community. The earlier versions have not been abandoned and they are still on regular maintenance.

Have you experienced any issues on Deco X20 currently? And if you could provide some details, I would love to check whether there is any suitable beta firmware available.

Thank you very much.

Hello,

 

No I don't have any pressing issues with the router but in the age of endless hacks and online threats it would be refreshing to see the router get some security updates now and then. No update for a year makes me wonder on TPs definition of "regular".

 

Is there a beta available? I would love the option to pick the Satellite that each device connects to for example.

Thank you for getting back to me.

I am afraid there is no beta firmware available for manual signal source selection yet and I will come back to the forum if such a beta firmware is ready for the test.

  @TP-Link It's been almost half a year since this message, and there's still nothing for the X20?

 

I just installed the new 1.6.0 on my parents' M5, and that finally fixed the horrendous performance they had on their edge Deco (thanks to being able to set the signal source).  But on my much newer and more expensive X20 - there's still no way of doing it, and of course other features that went into the 1.6.0 are nowhere to be found.  Any hope this won't be measured in years but in days or weeks?  Is there no code sharing happening between the different device firmwares?

 

Thanks,

 

Zeev

I can tell you the Deco x20 does not play nicely with the new iOS 16 beta on iPhone. If they don't get proactive with firmware updates they will have a lot of angry customers when it goes general release to every iPhone/iPad in September.

Thank you very much for the feedback.

I saw this error message at the beginning of IOS15 and based on the user feedback, it was more like a false alarm of IOS.

They will be new firmware for Deco X20 but I don't have the release date.

 

We are lucky to receive your feedback before the official release of IOS16 and would you mind sharing more details about the IOS16 beta test experience on Deco X20?

Thanks a lot.

Best regards.

 

 

 

Please leave me a message if I haven't seen your post and your issue is quite urgent!
