I bought this recently on EBay and it works fine. I have just checked the firmware version and it displays as 120703 rel 29722. This version doesn't appear amongst the downloads - the most recent is 120427. Has somebody upgraded to the wrong software? Should I upgrade to 120427?

I have version 1.1 and d/l'd firmware 111125. The upgrade ran successfully to 100% and then I got the login screen again. However after checking, then restarting to factory default the version displayed was still the old one

I've downloaded the firmware update 111125 and followed the instructions. The progress bar reaches 100% but the router doesn't seem to restart (judging by the status lights on the front). It does ask me to log back in but when I check the firmware version, it still reads 100722. I also tried factory default settings after the update. Still it reads 100722. I've tried the update 3 times now.

I have just bought this ADSL router. Of course, the first thing I did was upgrade the firmware, or so I thought.It seems that the firmware on the TP website is older than the one which was pre-installed onto the router.Website Firmware: 3.0.0 Build 120524 Rel.05221 ------------- i.e. 24.May.2012 Release 05221.Pre-loaded Firmware on router: 3.0.0 Build 120808 Rel.28888 -------------- i.e. 8.August.2012 Release 28888.I have foolishly uploaded the older firmware to the router from the website. I wanted to see what version number showed in the Router's Firmware page so I did a ROM backup, thinking I could always reload the "current" firmware. As it turns out, the ROM file is just the user settings backup.
It is sad that TP-Link doesn't provide change logs. Where to find later firmwares, or even what the change to the firmware was?And when we can expect a new firmware to be uploaded to the website?

And I have two problems.
1) I can not see any desktops in my local net, and with old router I could see all, for example (diskstation, dm800, etc...) In my macbook air I can not see my NAS Synology and with old router I do.
2) All PCs that are conected to 192.168.1.4 have not IP. and DHCP in TD-W8961ND is activated.

I just bought the wireless router as stated in the subject and I cant get 2 of our PC�s to connect wirelessly for some reason. 4 other PC's are fineAll machines running windows 7, but when the authentication type on WPA2-PSK the 2 computers ask for a password which we put in but keeps saying its wrong, but infact its right.I can connect them on WPA-PSK, but then all the computers drop out after 30 seconds.
Region : Canada Model : TD-W8961ND Hardware Version : V2 Firmware Version : 2.0.0 Build 120608 Rel.34612 ISP : TekSavvy NAT is enabled (under PVC2), as is UpNP
Whenever I enter all the info for a port forward under NAT in the virtual server tab, I click 'save' and nothing happens; chrome and firefox both give the same result.If I go to a different screen after pressing save and then come back to NAT settings, there's no entry updates and no port forwards.Should I install a different firmware (I can't find a newer version to install) or is NAT not supposed to work under PVC2? If I don't enter proper info (like leave the ports blank) I get an error if I press 'save', asking me to finish entering all the required info.

We need to replace the old modem for a small hotel, at the same time we are trying to expand the open (and free) public wifi that we currently offer in the bar area. Before our current modem/router went *PFFFT*, we had managed to get quite decent coverage using the 5 TP repeaters (TL-WA830RE) - but it was ALOT of work. Now we're hoping to replace with a TP modem to make the wifi setup easier.We also have 3 pc's, two wired and one wireless, that are for hotel use. We would like to keep these as separate and as safe as possible from the guest wireless, and i have been told VLAN is the best way to go.So, from what i have read on its spec's, the TD-W8961ND has both VLAN and QoS (which we would also like). It is also well within our price range.Given the setup we wish to implement, is the W8961ND the right idea? What considerations do i need to be bearing in mind for setup?

I have a TD-W8961ND that I got for my Dads internet connection to replace the awful Zyxel Modem/router. Problem is that the TD-W8961ND is Annex A (euroDOCSIS)We actually needed a TD-W8961NB - Annex B (DOCSIS)I already know that it is possible to convert other routers from A to B and vice versa...Just wondering if there is any way of either cross flashing or if there is a conversion firmware for this router.

how to configure QOS on the TD-W8961ND so that the sip packets from a Linksys SPA2102 VOIP ATA which gets its IP address from the DHCP server in the TD-W8961ND is given priority over all other traffic regardless of whether such traffic comes from devices connected via ethernet or wireless to the TD-W8961ND. In my setup I cannot assign a static IP address to the VOIP ATA.

I have two W8961ND, one for may office and the another one for use at my home, I tried to upgrade my device but during the upgrading the power supply plugged out and after that my device didn't boot up any more, so how can I repair my device, Is there any uploader for it's hardware chip because it doesn't work with it's LAN port or WIFI at this moment

I want to add more users to my home network and I couldn't, at this moment I only can connect 8 devices (12 devices at least) when I try to connect the next one its impossible, but if I take off one of the connected devices then the router allows to connect the new one.How can I connect more than 8 devices to my router ? (wireless)Also, is there any limits with Wireless MAC Address Filter ? because I can't add more than 8 MAC addresses in my old router I could do that.

A couple of weeks ago I have bought a TD-W8961ND in replacement of my old modem/router (of another brand, to upgrade from Wireless G to N). I tried to replicate in the new router something similar to my old setup, so I programmed Virtual Servers (under the NAT menu) with the following rules: NATRules.jpg in an attempt to:
- grant access from "outside" Internet to my web server
- have a Wakeup-On-LAN from "outside" Internet ..etc.. without success. Please note that:
- I have successfully setup a DDNS server to reach my modem router from outside
- as for WOL, I defined my subnet mask as 255.255.255.128
- I have not set any other rule, nor in NAT, nor in routing or other
- I tried also with firewall disabled
- I do my testing by means of a smartphone with wireless disabled and Internet connection via mobile service provider
- Both the above mentioned functions were working with my old modem/router (and still work on LAN), and I have not changed other things (PC setup etc)

Using windows 7 and 8 on different machines I am unable access my routers web based set up.
I enter the usual "admin" and password in the login box. 3 goes and then get error message. or hangs on waiting.(connected to the router with Ethernet Cable). Could this be a windows based problem. I think it was ok on XP but that is gone now. Router is working fine but I just cant access it to alter any settings.
My 2 other spare routers which are not TP-link also have the same problem.
Region : France Model : TD-W8968 Hardware Version : V1 Firmware Version : TD-W8968_V1_120926 ISP : SFR Device in question: siemans C610 IP voip phone Configuration:
* The C610 is directly connected to TD W8968 via the ethernet port number 3 >> ethernet port number 1 is connected to the devolo homeplug 200AVPLUS . The PC is at the other end of the homeplug network
* The DHCP address starts at 192.168.1.100 - 192.168.1.199.
1. It takes a long time (about 2-3 minutes) for the C610IP to obtain the IP address of 192.168.1.100 after the synchronisation of the ADSL line is finished 2. In the DHCP client list, I could only see the IP address of the PC (192.168.1.101) but not the C610 IP. However, if I type 192.168.1.100, I could access to the configuration page of the C610 IP. - I only managed to see the C610IP once in the DHCP client list.
I tried to unplug -> replug the router but to no avail.

I had Purchased a brand new TP-Link WifI Modem Router TD-W8961ND with S/N : 12CB5200872 from [URL] and it got delivered few days back. When I am trying to connect it to the internet the modem is not getting connected nor configured. The Power button light, ADSL Light and internet light are continuously blinking and nothing is getting steady. The modem is appearing to be a damaged piece of modem and it is very unfortunate that we have got a modem from flipkart in an unserviceable condition. It came with a warranty of 03 years and I wanted a replacement so that I can use the modem for connecting internet.

Like many others with the W8968 Modem Router we are experiencing sudden disconnections from the internet every 1/2/3 hours with the only way to cure the problem is to hard reset the modem router. For your tech staff on the phone to say 'I'll just have to do this" is completely unacceptable.I have used 3 other modem routers with the exact same setup flawlessly with no disconnections so it's 110% the modem routers problem.I'm pushing this message for you, TP-Link, to release a new firmware version to fix this problem.
I also believe there are other problems incorporating port forwarding,etc aside from this major flaw.I used to believe TP-Link was a trusted and great company but after my experience I'll be thinking otherwise.

I just bought a v3 TD-W8960N and I'm trying to see what is the latest firmware available?On the modem it came with 1.4.0 Build 111130 Rel.56405n.When I look on the website the listed latest version is w8960nv1_un_1_4_0_111108R40398.up (that is the file inside the zip package/link TD-W8960N_V1_V3_111108)Which is the newer version? The revision number on the firmware that came installed kind of looks like it is actually newer. But if it is newer, why is not available for download from TP-Link?
Writing this hoping to see how DLink intends to respond to this very large hole. As someone who works in security this is 2 week old news to me but is probably new to everyone else "Hopefully not dlink devs".
So the DIR 825 along with millions of other routers are vulnerable to an outside upnp exploit basically means somebody from outside can root your router and for example open up whatever ports they want. Upnp has its own issues but it useful for those who don't want to open up a port every time some app might need a specific port but was never meant to be accessible from outside your network, Until now.
This is not some bizarre proof of concept or something that is even hard to pull off and what it would give is access to your entire private network and everything that might entail. You can test if your router is vulnerable at this link. It's owned by Steve Gibson. Many of you probably know of him, Somewhat of a celebrity in the security world. There is a upnp exposure test you can do right off the main page. It also explains whats happening and even shows you the code being used, Quite fascinating actually.
