    Can SpeedTest be turned off in 2.0.0 Firmware for C2300?

    I'm setting up a TP-Link AC2300 router for use in a very remote part of Africa. Mainly they just want the router for sharing some files between computers on a USB drive that will be inserted into it. Their Internet connection there is via cellular modem and they only have 2G service - so basically they can only POP email but no browsing!

    I noticed that the new 2.0 firmware on this router has a nice SpeedTest capability built in. But I don't want that to be chewing up their prepaid cellular data, especially when they have so little bandwidth available. I hunted around the advanced settings pages on the router after the upgrade, but I don't see a setting to turn OFF the SpeedTest feature.

    If it can't be turned off, can you tell me how often the SpeedTest automatically runs? Is it only at boot-up or on a schedule? I see that it ran twice since I updated the firmware, although I never manually launched it.
    Thanks much!

    There is no way to turn it off.
    It will run only the device starts to work as a new device or you eanble Qos function.
    Since you update the firmware, that's why you see twice because the router get to work twice.

    Ok thank you Kevin for that confirmation.
    I appreciate the info, and its good to know that it will just run when the device boots up, not recurring on a scheduled basis.
