    Question Latest Firmware for VR900

    Via the web interface on my router it says :

    Archer VR900 v2 00000000

    0.1.0 0.9.1 v0069.0 Build 160525 Rel.38143n

    however on the TP Link site it says :

    Archer VR900 (EU) V2 Build 160721 offered as the original and only firmware !!

    I am confused , my router says build 160525 and TP Link site says Build 160721.

    I have tried to check this via the interface in the router and it says I am up to date ?

    So what is correct , or am I reading it wrong ?

    Does the online interface not work that checks and allows you to update the firmware or do I have to manually download the firmware from the site and apply it ?

    Anybody with any ideas on this ?

    I don't want to kill my new router by trying the wrong firmware but on the other hand if there is a firmware update I assume it will improve my router's performance or security.

    I am in UK on TalkTalk VDSL line 80/20 Mbps .

    Exclamation Which firmware is newest for UK VDSL line !!!!!!!

    Hi Uutommi,

    So do I but the bit that worries me is I do not have warranty , so I need a definite YES before screwing up my new toy .

    The bit that worries me is this :

    Archer VR900 (EU) V2 Build 160721 offered as the original and only firmware !! but mine is Build 160525 that's where it doesn't add up .

    I think I will wait and see if there is anyone that can verify this is good.

    I assume the firmware Build 160525 ( means 25th May 2016 ) and Build 160721 ( means 21st July 2016 )

    Just got a reply from TP link :

    And the firmware is not latest, could you please upgrade the firmware to double check:

    If can please download the firmware in the below link:
    http://uk.tp-link.com/download/Archer-VR900_V2.html#Firmware

    Then upgrade the firmware:

    Red face Firmware updated

    Just an update on the firmware issues , did a config file backup and bit the bullet , downloaded firmware from :

    Then upgrade the firmware:
    http://tp-link.com/en/faq-652.html

    If can please download the firmware in the below link:
    http://uk.tp-link.com/download/Archer-VR900_V2.html#Firmware


    All went fine , didn't even need to restore config file , all my settings stayed the same , couldn't really see any changes

    so I assume it was bugs etc that did not really affect me.

    Got a couple of errors on the upload and from looking at Telnet output these are from FEC errors on the upload ,

    which are error correction but ones that have been corrected so not a major worry and it seems only a couple extra every

    hour , during mild usage .It seems that the Upload errors are from the " ATUCCRCErrors=3 " when viewing Statposter results.


    Here are my results , seem like quite a good line ( just had BT put me a new dropline and MK4 Master box in aswell )

    Lightbulb Archer VR900 Firmware Update Help...

    I managed to solve Just use internet explorer

    I was using firefox

    Question?

    How do I upgrade from V1 to V3?

    With Archer VR900?

    An easy answer :) You buy a Newer Version !

    Hi Dacsoft,

    Have you tried scrolling down a bit whilst hovering mouse over "system tools " there is another tab below where you are looking that gives this :

    PICTURE 1

    You then need to go here and get the update file and save it on your Desktop :

    http://uk.tp-link.com/download/Arche....html#Firmware

    PICTURE 2

    Then Unzip the file on your desktop and you will see a " bin " file like this :

    PICTURE 3

    Use the browse button and select this bin file on your desktop and everything else is automatically done .

    Follow instructions in pdf , don't forget to backup your config file first by using the next tab down

    "Backup and Restore " so your settings on router can be reinstalled easy if they get deleted during the update.


    They don't usually and I have updated both my v1 and v2 VR900's recently .



    Not sure about a v3 but both v1 and v2 are different routers , white is v1 and black is v2 ,

    the only difference is one of the Broadcom chips inside which is slightly newer on the v2


    If you go to here there is a discussion on VR900 :

    http://forum.kitz.co.uk/index.php/topic,15833.90.html



    The Interfaces look very similar if not identical and both perform the same on my 80/20 VDSL line.

    Question?

    V1 and V3 have differences on hardware part. No way to upgrade the hardware part.

    How do I upgrade from V1 to V3?
