Re: TP-LINK Archer VR900 v1 and V2?
« Reply #105 on: December 03, 2017, 12:31:02 PM »

Hi!
Just joined so I can ask this question.

Sorry to bring up this old thread,  but was there ever a definitive answer to the question  of what the difference was between the VR900 V1 ( white ) and VR900 V2 ( black )?

I've finally upgraded to FTTC with Plusnet, the ' up to 38mb ' VDSL2 product, ( hh5 says 39.99 sync down and 8.319mb up at the moment - day 3 of learning mode ) and I'm coming from their ADSL product. ( had 16mb sync with that )
Of course they've sent me a rebranded HH5 that has pretty much no settings lol.

I've come from a trusty Netgear DGN2000 that  has been rock solid for several years after having replaced the crappy power caps for decent ones and adding a 40mm fan and buck converter to turn the voltage down making the fan silent.

The DGN2000 has quite a decent firewall and  4 WiFi ssid channels all with separate wpa passwords ( handy for separating stuff)
Also has filtering for Mac,  ip, isolation ( trusted devices),  turning off ssid visability etc, url filtering.

The VR900 seems the closest to the DGN2000's feature set in terms of security and line stability,  but I just don't know which to buy?  V1 White or V2 Black.

I'd really like your informed opinion.
I need to get it ordered as soon as possible.

Is the 30 price difference between v1 and v2 all down to the usb3.0 addition?

Thank you in advance,  I look forward to your reply.

Rich.

In terms of features and specification, there's not a lot of difference between the VR900v1 and the VR900v2. Internally, the two devices are completely different, different chips, the VR900v1 is two systems in one box.

The newer model might be supported by firmware updates for a little longer.

Hi Ejs,
Thanks for the quick reply!

When you say v1 is two systems in one,  are you just referring to the way it's laid out ( modem and ethernet seperated ) or are you saying I will still need a seperate modem if I
opt to buy the black V2 ( as you say might have firmware available a while longer )

I'd really like to go all on one.

I've read so many empty of fact retailer pitches and scrolled through so many different pdf manuals I'm now just dizzy and lost  :baby:

Figured I'd better ask the pro's, so I came here to ask you and your knowledgeable friends.  :thumbs:

I'll order it today I think..  Seems like V2, but I'm just double checking again.

P.s. Thankyou!

Just the way it's designed internally.

V2 it is then!
Thankyou so much, I've had days of scrambled brains over this.
I'll go order it now.

Yes, it will work with any xDSL based service.

Thanks for the reply.
I tried different methods to make it work.
Used the 101 vlan, changed the type connection and so on, i need to mention that I do have the username and password from Voda, my last idea is that they gave a wrong username and pass.Tough the guy on the chat seemed that he copy pasted the username and pass.
It somehow connects as the routers pulls the IP and max speed for DL and UP but while I was looking in the logs is giving an error which I can`t recall fully now.
Is there a guide available somewhere or something that you can point me at for an idea to make it work?

I'm not sure if anyone has created a basic guide for the usage of those TP-Link devices but if you have configured a VLAN, tagged 101, everything else should be the quite normal xDSL settings.

Perhaps there is another member, actually using one of those devices, who will be able to assist you.

No, the value assigned to 802.1p is not absolutely vital.

Here is a link to the Wikipedia page for IEEE P802.1p, which will tell you all.  :)
