    I will update the firmware of my CPE210 V1.1 to Pharos 2.0 although TP Link says there may be damage.

    I see. But why did TP-Link not implement a selection box with range filters then like they did in CPE510? There you can restrict the range to the ones useable in most countries.

    With this "feature" the Spectrum Analysis now is absolutely useless in the EU, where only frequencies 2402 to 2482 MHz (mid-frequency 2412 to 2472 MHz) are allowed. So it is actually no feature for me, but a bug in the EU edition of the CPE210.

    In which countries are the other frequencies from test mode allowed?

    It's probably restricted in flash (in the ART partition to be exact) like it is in WBS210(EU). I have installed PharosOS 2.0.0 on my WBS210 v1.20 and there is also no country selection and no test mode with limited TX power, although in CPE210(EU) v1.0 there is country selection menu including test mode.

    Yes I would like to see the selection box too.

    Nowhere, it is allowed only in testing environment/laboratory. But who cares?

    Even better: If they can restrict channel selection and TX power if a certain region is selected, it would be easy to also adjust the range for Spectrum Analysis according to selected region.

    Nowhere, it is allowed only in testing environment/laboratory. But who cares?
    Regulation authorities. Fines in Germany are in the range of 3,000 to 6,000 Euro and are imposed often, but mainly for exceeding TX power with amplifiers (which are sold freely). You can see their investigation teams in action here an there:

    Probably yes there is something writed on the art partition. I solved installing LEDE and after Openwrt. Now i can select 23dbm that is the real maximum power of the device.

    Good question indeed. Is it possible to revert back to 1.3.3 in case something's off with regards to either the setup or performance of v2.0?

    Can we downgrade the firmware back to 1.x ?
    Yes, it's possible to downgrade.

    I installed Pharos 2.0 to my CPE210 V1.1, it works fine, it is in client mode connected to Mikrotik RB Metal 2SHPn.

    Great! Would be interesting wether throughput changes with 2.0 compared to 1.3.3. Please let the forum know if you find out.
