    Hello,

    Title says it all, what is the hardware differences between V1 & V2 for the Archer VR600?
    And how can I be sure to buy a rev. 2 model?

    Thanks,
    Park K.

    Hi,

    I don't know the hardware differences between these models, there must be something different I guess apart from the updated logo on the left of the case.

    The firmware now includes the ability for the device to act as a VPN server which is an advantage. I don't believe any of the higher models can do this yet either (VR2600, VR900 etc)

    I got something from specification. V2 just has one USB port. Basically no much difference on hardware part.
    V2 add VPN server , tether remote control and TP-Link DDNS. It has a new VI which is more friendly to use.
    Technically V2 is better than V1.

    Looking through the User Guides, there's significant functionality in the v2 compared to the v1:

    * VPN server (OpenVPN, PPTP, or IPSEC - user can choose which to use)
    * Network security functionality - ipv4firewall, ipv6 firewall
    * Local and Remote management have more settings available
    * QOS capability

    I'm feeling peeved, as I bought a VR600 today and got home to find it's a v1

    It would be great if TP-Link were to issue a firmware update for v1 as it seems these extra features are software enabled rather than hardware enabled, and probably could be added to the v1.

    Do any TP-Link representatives look at these boards?

    I contacted tp-link support, and they stated that no firmware for v1 to bring the v2 extra features is planned.
