    I do not find the newest tpPLC utility on the tp-limk.de side. Where can I get the newest version? thank you

    For those interested, firmware v2.4.0-01 for QCA7500 :
    https://1fichier.com/?51iwju01lr

    PIB v2.2.x are OK with it.
    I take no responsibility if you brick your PLC. Don't try to flash blindly.
    Do understand beforehand that it's a full QCA firmware, ie there are 7 modules in it vs TP-Link ones which use 5, and there's might/must be a reason for this choice.

    So if you want to have a 5 modules firmware, you have to :
    0 download and build binaries from Qualcomm Atheros Open Powerline Toolkit : https://github.com/qca/open-plc-utils
    1 split modules (nvmsplit)
    2 merge needed modules - i.e omit "OAS Client IP Stack" and "OAS Client TR069" module - (nvmmerge)
    3 verify the integrity of the new merged NVM (chknvm2 -v + nvmsplit -v )

    Could you please provide a more detailed instructions how to do that? What software is needed? If you could post FW for PL8010P, I would be grateful :-)

    OK, I've added some instructions in italic in my post, about what software is needed, and what commands are to be passed. HTH.
    As for "already-made customisation for TP-Link", I'm a little bit reluctant to provide one this since it defeats the purpose of giving explanations in order for people to understand stuff they are doing but well, here it is:

    Thank you very much! So NVM is the actal firmware whereas PIB is just the frequeny table? So I can mix newer NVM and older PIB for the same product?

  7. #52
    Well to be precise, only module 4 (counting from 0) of the NVM is the actual "Runtime Firmware", but this is nitpicking.
    As for the PIB, it's more like a configuration file which, apart from the frequency table with exclusions according to local regulations (hence the EU, UK, US flavors), contains amongst other things CCo("P2P") or MDU("Master/Slave") configuration, QoS settings, DAK (Device Access Key), MAC @, NMK (Network Membership Key) which are not reflashed except in bootloader mode.
    The format of PIB file is not immutable but a v2.2.x PIB should work with a v2.4.0 NVM. AFAIK latest PIB for a EUropean 8010P is in http://static.tp-link.com/Beta_TL-PA...01.0_2.2.3.rar
    For flashing, it's better to use the old TP-Link Utility rather than tpPLC, but in a newer version than the one packaged by NOLAN (v2.0 build 20150327 vs v2.0 build 20140923), which can be found in http://www.tplink.com/resources/soft...V1_Utility.zip

    Thanks for clarifying! Can I use PIB from 2.0.0 with 2.2, 2.3 or 2.4 NVM?

  9. #54
    I don't have a clear response to your question because I haven't tested that sort of weird mix (and don't want to answer theoretically).
    But why would you want to do such a thing ? PIBs, just like NVMs, are refined/adjusted with time.

  10. #55
    I use the adapters on a really bad wiring across two phases and with fw 2.0.0 I get a stable connection at around 30 Mbps. If I try a newer fw, the connection drops to 4 Mbps and is unstable, or cannot be established at all. So older fw is good, newer doesn't work. That's why I would like to try newer fw with older PIB.

    Some news: 2.2.3 firmware still bugged (random disconnects with PS3, DNS error), but 2.4.0 if perfect for me.
    Updated TL-8015P with tpPLC without problem, but lost MAC adress with the WPA-8635P (thanks recovery, so use old TP-Link Utility instead of). I used the 2.2.3 PIB.
    Thanks again shroeder and NOLAN !

    Uraninium can you please post 2.4.0 firmware for us to use mate? Cheers

    Use 2.2.x PIB with 2.4.0 NVM.

    Hi

    I updated my 8010p and 8030p devices with beta PIBs and shroeder's2.4.0 NVM without problem.

    8010 : TL-PA8010P(EU)_170330_2.2.3_BETA with MAC-7500-v2.4.0-01-NW6__-X-CS_modules_5-6_stripped
    8030 : TL-PA8030P(EU)-170616-2.2.3-BETA with MAC-7500-v2.4.0-01-NW6__-X-CS_modules_5-6_stripped

    I used the newest TP Utility for update, reset to factory defaults. All devices are working. I will test the random disconnects and write soon.
