    TL-PA9020P AV2000 losing network pairing/dropping connection

    Model : TL-PA9020PKIT

    Hardware Version : Not Clear

    Firmware Version : 3.2.4_902111_170118_901

    ISP : Sky Fibre[/COLOR]

    Hi all,

    Thought I'd post to see if anyone else has the same problem or has found a solution to a problematic adapter I have.

    I bought 2 * TL-PA9020P kits and have synced up all 4 to be paired and all seemed to work fine, with all 3 LEDs green in colour.

    A few weeks ago I noticed my Apple TV wasn't connecting to the network and looked at the AV2000 adapter and noticed the 2nd / middle LED was flashing red intermittently. I looked via the Windows app "tp-PLC" and noticed that the troublesome adapter kept joining the network then dropping off.

    I am able to reset the adapter and re-pair it to the network. However, after no more than 24 hours, the LAN light turns red once more, flashing every 2 or 3 seconds.


    All the adapters have the most recent firmware 3.2.4_902111_170118_901


    Any pointers, much appreciated.

    These adaptors simply don't work reliably. I have the same type of issues. See the similar other posts here...

    Still no updated firmware after the previous version was removed.

    Does anybody have a backup of that Firmware? I'm a little frustrated at having to reset the whole network every day, switching off all the appliances which are using the through-socket isn't ideal either?

    How to update the firmware of TP-LINK Powerline Adapters using the tpPLC Utility.zip


    Yes - see above - ONLY upgrade ones you are directly connected to via Ethernet, etc - don't upgrade any across the Power line network or they will mostly brick...nb - this doesn't really fix anything. Marginally better maybe.

    Many thanks - I will update if any further issues.

    I will also go through a list of devices that are attached which seem to instigate the network instability ...

    So far:
    - I've tried creating the group as a 'secure' network, yet this did not solve the problem.

    Does someone have the 20170118 firmware EU version?

    Hi, here you go.

    As above you must be connected directly via Ethernet to each adaptor for this or they will most likely brick...

    (Disabling jumbo packets and IP V6 on every device I could seems to have helped. It's still not 100% stable, but it's better.)

    Same speeds with 3.2.4 version

    Looks like with 3.2.4 version 9020P works better with my old PA8010P,

    Here is the newer 3.2.4b version. https://1drv.ms/u/s!AAXXYwUIK3q_jZQL

    Make sure you update with the newest TPC utility or the update will likely fail!

    Thanks but not recommended, at least for v1.0

    Both adapters gave me errors updating. One finally was updated and one is totally bricked. Returning both to seller

    Worked for me (via the recovery utility) on bricked 1.0 hardware. See the thread with the utility on.

    http://forum.tp-link.com/showthread....s-lit-Try-this.

    It seems nuts to me that TP-LINK don't provide it on this forum or on their website, but I have uploaded it as they don't seem motivated to do so.
