The VPN Client Feature has now been added to the official firmware release for the AX11000 v1 and v1.6 and AX6000 v2; with the firmware now available from the model's download page. If your model does not have the new firmware listed, you may continue to use the early access versions below.

 

Please ensure that you have selected the correct hardware version before downloading and updating your firmware, as not all versions have received an official updated firmware to support the feature.

Hello @FGARS2 

 

The VPN Client of the TP-Link router can work with third-party VPN Servers such as SurfsharkNordVPNMullvadProton VPNExpress VPNPrivateTunnelOVPNPIA, etc. 

 

A VPN connection helps provide a more secure connection and access to other networks and the internet, you are able to access websites and online services that would otherwise be blocked in your network. So in this case, using a VPN Client to connect to a VPN server should help you.

Hello @FGARS2 

 

Is this one?

 

As I can see, Riley has replied to you in every detail that we can think of. All these devices, iPhone 14 pro, MacBook Pro, and Apple TV could be 2*2 MU-MIMO, so they could negotiate with the AX11000 in 1.2Gbps in an ideal environment. You can verify this by login to the web GUI of the AX11000 to check what is the negotiation speed on these devices under the Network Map, then please show us the screenshot.

 

If the negotiation speed is 1.2Gbps, but you still only get ~600Mbps when connecting to the 5G network, please confirm if you have tried the suggestions provided by Riley that try running a Wi-Fi analyzer to review the surrounding channels, then choose a less crowded one. Reboot the router and the iPhone to test the speed.

 

Regarding the QoS setting, please check and ensure there is no device in high priority, and it is in Standard mode as described in the following FAQ:

How to turn off the QoS feature on TP-Link Router

  @Kevin_Z 
Thanks alot Kevin !
The thing is was that i made my ISP provide me with modem capable of Bridge mode ! and they chage it for me a week ago !
So what i was asking him if there is anything on the AX11000 that need to be adjusted after connecting it to the modem ( that now is in bridge mode ) or leave as it is ?
ill give a feedback in case someone else pass by this. but before putting the modem in bridge mode with or without Smaert connect never was able to pass 600mb from my 1Gbps and putting the AX11000 as AP helped a little ( was reaching 650mb ) So now after changing modem to bridge , with smart connect still getting 600mb but setting up 3 diff SSID with manual config i was able to get 800Mb and once 850MB i think this is perfect tested for 1 week and im now always getting 850Mb !! and wired usually 950Mb to 1Gbps but now its gibing 1.2Gbps 

thank you

@FGARS2 

 

I see. Thank you very much for all these detailed information, I'm glad to hear that the speed is much better now once changing the modem to bridge mode.

 

We generally configure only one router in the network to avoid double NAT, which may cause a speed loss since it makes the communication more complex when comparing with only one NAT in the network.

  @Kevin_Z  Does this work for hardware version 1.6 and have you fixed the issue with firmware reporting an incorrect hardware version?

  @Kevin_Z Fully aware of that seeing as that links to the stable update from May. As a I said before the early release firmware link you referred people to was a  beta update that has serious issues in this router.
