I don't know what the firmware is, I have not even turned it on.

But I have downloaded 150507.

I will transfer all bits n bobs to the iMac that is 2m from the unit (wired as all is)

I assume that it will auto PPPoE/VlanID etc

 


Yes, everything other than user name will auto setup.

Re: TP-LINK N600 TD-W9980

Thank you.

I'm a little surprised by the lack of top/back/ side venting, I did note comment on the TP forum about overheating although that seemed to be due to excess devices being used.

Can't install 'till morning as the YouView in in use.

It will be just in time, I think, as the HH5A has not updated the firmware to .204 yet. So there can not be any config' downloaded. The 'max data rate' is just stupid and yo-yo-ing. The HH is beginning to emulate the old HH5A I had.

Mine runs barely warm, but is only running 1 wired and 3 wireless devices maximum, mostly just one wired and one wireless.

Re: TP-LINK N600 TD-W9980

licquorice

I see what you mean about the set up.

I also really like the wifi switch, I can just switch it on when our granddaughter arrives and off when she leaves.

Quite a large 'footprint' but I don't like the idea of hanging it.

Reassuring bit of kit.

Re: TP-LINK N600 TD-W9980

Picking brains a bit?

The 'leased time' (DHCP) has a default of 24hrs, same as HH.

I always increased this on the HH due to its method of handling it.

Does, in your experience, the TP-Link benefit from an increase.

Re: TP-LINK N600 TD-W9980

To be honest, I always use static IP addresses on my machines other than my phone so haven't bothered with lease times. Can't say I've noticed any problem with the phone though.

Re: TP-LINK N600 TD-W9980

My one works quite well and runs a lot cooler than the new VR900 model.

 

It does however have a limited media server with a limit of 1000 items.

 

The VR900 seems to have a limit of about 90,000 media tracks (still not enough for me).

Re: TP-LINK N600 TD-W9980

How did you connect/ get your YOUVIEW working with this? We had TP connected, box found router and connected but we couldn't access the channels or ONDEMAND so took it back. Now we have no internet to the TV at all because the HH5 won't send data down the lines.

Re: TP-LINK N600 TD-W9980

I am a little confused by your post.

You seem to be saying that the YouView does not work with the TP or the HH5.

If this is the case then I would look at the YouView box or perhaps with the cable
