    Current TM-AC1900 Firmware?


      What is the current firmware for the Personal Cell Spot? Mine is



        • 1. Re: Current TM-AC1900 Firmware?

          Yes, I would like to know what the current firmware is also. In looking over the various threads on the subject it's a bit confusing. I have what tricon23 states above but a confirmation would be appreciated.

            i called asus support they told me to download latest firmware here


            they said it is the same router just rebranded...

            • 3. Re: Current TM-AC1900 Firmware?

              You will get an error when trying to upgrade the firmware of the AC-68 even though its the same router. I think T-Mobile has locked out the ability to upgrade the router with any other than T-Mobile (Asus) firmware.

              • 4. Re: Current TM-AC1900 Firmware?

                They are the same but the software is different. There are other provisions for T-Mobile with a deal with Asus. That's why they have different upgrade paths.

                • 5. Re: Current TM-AC1900 Firmware?

                  Yes but this does not address the point that ASUS has been keeping up with firmware updates regularly and none for a long time with T-Mobile (TM-AC1900). It should be as simple as a code change anytime that new AC-68 firmware is released. I don't know why this is not being done at least for security reasons.

                  • 6. Re: Current TM-AC1900 Firmware?

                    T-Mobile Router (Asus RT68U AC1900) Changing Firmware - YouTube

                    If you do this you should be able to flash the newest 68u firmware....

                    • 7. Re: Current TM-AC1900 Firmware?

                      Doesn't matter different update schedules

                      • 8. Re: Current TM-AC1900 Firmware?

                        Once you flash the 68u firmware though you can always flash the 68u firmware from then on

                        • 9. Re: Current TM-AC1900 Firmware?

                          I wish T-Mobile would do an amazing announcement around this...


                          * The Forum Software used here isn't even updated with fixes for Facebook login / Yahoo login. Both are broken.

                          * Just like their inattention to the Forum Software, they are not paying attention to ASUS updates. Several revisions later, the TM-AC1900 is far behind the RT-68U updates. Here is a change log of what is different now - in bold are critical security updates. Now I don't want to 'downgrade' my router to just an ASUS router, instead of a T-Mobile / ASUS router...but I have to and I URGE EVERYONE ELSE TO DO THE SAME. These are CRITICAL security updates that leave your network UNPROTECTED!!

                            since 2016-06-04,....

                            Product ID: TM-AC1900

                            Firmware Version:

                            The router's current firmware is the latest version.

                            • 11. Re: Current TM-AC1900 Firmware?


                              • 12. Re: Current TM-AC1900 Firmware?

                                This latest update seems to have broken the ability to use a connected HDD for Time Machine. I have two disks connected. One is a media server, the other is for backup. Using the Time Machine setup pane I had identified that disk and it showed up on all the Macs in the house as AC1900-7330. But since this update AC1900-7330 no longer appears. The media server disk is still there. Help!

                                • 13. Re: Current TM-AC1900 Firmware?

                                  I am also having trouble with Time Machine. Every time the disk image is mounted the CPU and RAM on the router starts pegging. The backup then gets stuck on Preparing for Backup for hours. Eventually, the backup just fails. For a while it did get to start backing up, but it did only a few MB, then pause, then some more, then long pause. After maybe a few hundred MB total, the backup failed. That happened for a few days. Now it never gets past preparing. And the whole time the CPU and RAM are pegging. As soon as I dismount the drive from my computer, the router settles down. Needless to say, I haven't had a successful backup since the upgrade.

                                  • 14. Re: Current TM-AC1900 Firmware?

                                    I'm unable to mount the disk image, since it doesn't even appear on my network (I checked this from two different Macs). So you're ahead of me here. I wonder what the difference is?
