    Archer C3150 V1 Beta Firmware update

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    I have been experiencing wifi dropping on my C3150 V1 router which was purchased in June of 2016. I worked with customer support to troubleshoot my problems and when we had exhausted all of the potential problem areas with no success, the representative sent me a link to a beta firmware update (number 170526). So far, after 4 days, my wifi has remained stable. There is a watermark on my router interface now that reads "Confidential - Only for Test". I asked why this firmware has not been made available on the update page, since it has a May completion date. The representative did not know why.

    Has anyone else had this experience? I feel as though the V1 C3150's have been left in the dust vs. the V2's which have received several updates in 2017. If beta firmware update 170526 is stable, why hasn't it been released? And, if it is not stable, am I testing it for them?

    TP-link should provide support for the V1 routers, just as they do for the V2's.

    Following is what was sent to me on August 22nd:

    It actually appears that there is a beta firmware that should help with stability of the Wireless, please download and update and let me know if the stability problems persist:

    Hi. Support is not getting back to me...

    I know this FW says "US" but would it also work on a "EU" V1 router?

    No, EU and US cannot update to each other. You can email the tplink support
