An up-to-date firmware provides better and more stable network performance, so we highly recommend you always updating Deco to the latest firmware version.

Here are two ways to update the firmware.

Method 1: Update the firmware via the Deco app, which applies to all of the Deco models.

Step 1: Log into the Deco app and tap “More”, then click on “Update Deco”

Step 2: Here you can view your current firmware version if your firmware is the latest one, or you can see if any updates are available. If a new firmware is available, you can see the new firmware info. 

(Take Deco P7 as an example)

Step 3: Tap “Download Firmware” to download the latest firmware.

 

Step 4: After the firmware is downloaded, click on “Install” to install the latest firmware.

After the firmware installed, the deco will reboot. Then you can see the deco is updated to the latest firmware.

Tips:

If the firmware update fails, please reboot the main Deco, move the Satellite Deco closer to the main Deco, then try to update again.

 

Method 2: Update the firmware manually via the web UI, which applies to the Deco models that have the web management page.

Step 1: Go to the Download Center > click on your Deco’s model > select the hardware version of your Deco unit > click on Firmware, then you can download the latest firmware on your computer.

 

Step 2: Unzip the downloaded firmware and you will see a bin file.

Refer to the link to log into the web management page of your Deco. If you fail to log into the web page, please refer to the link to troubleshoot.

 

Step 3: On the web management page, click on Advanced > System > Firmware Upgrade, select your Deco’s model, then click on BROWSE to select the bin file, and then click on UPGRADE to update the firmware.

Note: Currently, some Deco models do not support the web management page, but don’t worry, they will support the web page via firmware updates in the future.
