|We just tried to configure a TP-Link TL-WR940Nv6 router for a customer. In the process, we discovered that the router did not forward packets between its switch ports! Devices attached to the switch ports could all speak to the router, but they could not communicate with one another. When I loaded a Linksys E1200 with the same DD-WRT build (39267), its internal switch DID forward packets between ports.
I then loaded the TP-Link with the very latest build (40900) and the problem persisted.
Apparently, the firmware is not setting the switch up properly.
Developers, could you look at this problem?
