    A update to the Canadian version would be nice too since there hasn't been one since 161031 for V2 which is HORRIBLE , thankfully the Beta Firmware in the Sticky Thread is working but it still doesn't support SMB-v2 which is now needed for Windows 10.

    It is irritating that for other countries the latest firmware can be as old as 2015. Why can't TP-LINK produce UNiversal version like before and let users select region? Do they think users should not be allowed to choose? This is easier for them too.

    I also request/demand that you release the firmware released for US Archer C7 v2 to us in EU. It is you have imposed the artificial limit on regions on us, make sure you release firmware for all regions then. No excuses!

    I also request and demand that TP-Link releases the US firmware for Archer C7 v2 to the other regions. Now! No excuses! There is only an artificial limit, just release it already!

    And if you purchased one of these routers before they created this artificial limit, you can't even know for sure what firmware should you upgrade to. Mine does not have any region markings on the bottom sticker or in the firmware. At all. Nor in the box. This region locking of firmwares is beyond stupid.

    Well folks,

    Already owning 2 C7 routers, and my eyes set on the AC3200, I finally woke up and realized that there are no FW updates (Israel),
    since 2015!!!! Unbelievable.
    Many parts of the world already have from 2017, and even 2018.

    I was told I may use EU(V2) FW, but I got the infamous error 18005.

    I should ask for refund, very disappointed that tp-link is not able to provide updated FW support for it's customers.
    Shame on you tp-link for region locking and lack of support.

    It's because different countries have different laws on which bands/channels you can use and how strong the Antenna can be etc....and of course they change the PCB , chips etc each version too...

    Though I am not sure how different a CA model can be from a US model ?

    I thought Archer C7 was not affected by wpa2 security KRACK ?

    Last week, shifted over to the range of Netgear routers.
    Purchased the NETGEAR Nighthawk X6 R8000 AC3200 :-)

    No longer shall I continue to purchase TP-Link Routers with no support nor updates,
    as I'm left out on the cold.

    Only reply I've had from TP-LINK Technical Support on this is :

    The latest firmware is still under the careful test

    My response from Canadian Support was equally inadequate , when I asked why we didn't have V18xxxx Firmware like the American C7 V2 Router

    Thank you very much for your email requesting information about our product.

    As I checked here,yes the latest version for Archer C7_V2_CA is 161031.

    I will send your feedback to our R&D department.

    Latest update from TP-LINK Technical Support :

    Thanks for your patience waiting.
    Some modification has been added to the new firmware version, to make sure the performance and stability, our engineers are doing the careful test on it, so there is a delay post.
