    Hi, I have some question: Test_mode with max power 27dBm still work? And can we downgrade the firmware back to 1.x ?

    Could you give us the download link of the new firmware?

    Thanks very much.

    Yes, downgrade to 1.3.3 works. But you will not want to do it, the new version seems loading web pages much faster in old browsers.


    Note: On the German TP-Link website there are two different firmware versions for CPE210 V2 and other Pharos devices:

    CPE210 V2: CPE210(UN)_V2_161102 rel. 39691 http://www.tp-link.de/download/CPE210_V2.html#Firmware
    This version will not install on a CPE210 V1 hardware. Probably V2 hardware will have modifications?

    WBS210/510/CPE220/510/520 V2 only: TP_PharOS_2.0.0_161117 rel. 38185 http://www.tp-link.de/download/CPE510_V2.html#Firmware
    Despite the warning, this version installs also on CPE210 V1 and all other PharOS V1 devices as Alessio pointed out already.


    Some changes in PharOS 2.0.0:

    DNS settings for LAN in AP/Client/Repeater/Bridge mode. Management VLAN added:

    Channel width setting 5 MHz now available in Wireless menu (if region set to Test mode, might not be available in certain countries).
    Also, extension channel (upper/lower) field is enabled if fixed channel is used in Test mode (was hidden field IIRC):

    Wireless survey lets you restrict scan range in client mode (screeny from a CPE510 V1):

    New speed test modes: field parallel sessions disappeared, unidirectional test now distinguishes for RX and TX directions:

    Bug still not fixed in PharOS 2.0.0: Spectrum Analysis on CPE210 still displays range 2312 to 2712 MHz instead of 2402 to 2482 MHz as shown in the CPE210's Quick Installation Guide making it hard to find best channels. Either the range or the labels seem to be wrong (reported to TP-Link several times already):

    My pleasure, you did make it possible!

    I update my cpe210(EU) v1.1 with this v2 firmware and alls go fine, but the max allowed power still 11dbm. No possibility of select country or test mode on the main screen after the reset. There is a way to get 27dbm from (EU) hardware version?

    All of there 3 features were available in firmware v1 too. The third one isn't a bug, it really shows the spectrum from 2312 to 2712, I was one of them who requested this feature because in test mode you are able to use channels from 2312 to 2712MHz.

    Try to downgrade to v1.3.3 TP_PharOS_1.3.3_160705 and you will see that was the same. Maybe you had very old firmware v1 so there features weren't available.

    Which version did you update? This one? http://static.tp-link.com/TP_PharOS_2.0.0_161117.zip, which option did you select during flashing? Keep settings or restore default? Maybe you can try this one http://static.tp-link.com/CPE210_V2_161102.zip, and don't keep the current settings.

    Nice job R1D2, thanks for the quick and thorough mini-review!

    Any indication of beamforming coming back? Any changes with regards to in-situ performance differentials, anyone performed quick tests to check actual throughput compared to previous version?

    Here's a quick flashback to CPEs management VLAN tested in beta firmwares back in 2015.. http://forum.tp-link.com/showthread....N-introduction

    Hola alegara

    En la configuración wireless, qué región tiene la configuración de tus CPE? todos trabajan a 27 dBm?

    Hola John, en país elijo la primer opcion Test_mode para que funcione sin limite de canales ni potencia... el foro es en inglés, deberías escribir en esa lengua. Saludos!

    ----------------------------------------- IN ENGLISH -----------------------------------

    Hello John, in Country I choose the first option "Test_mode" to work without limit of channels and power ... the forum is in English, you should write in that language. Regards!
    Thanks and regards!
