SRM 1.3.1 is the current operating system of the Synology RT6600ax, RT2600ac, and MR2200ac routers. Version 1.3.1-9316 RC (Release Candidate) was released today, June 24, 2022, and one of the major updates to the software is that it now supports compatibility of the mesh Wi-Fi system between the RT6600ax, RT2600ac and MR2200ac. I have already upgraded my environment because the RC version fixes multiple important security vulnerabilities such as Synology-SA-22:09 SRM. Considering there are multiple security fixes in this RC, it’s actually a good idea to update to the RC version before the final version becomes available which can take a bit more time.
Log in to your Synology router then go to Control Panel / System / Manual SRM Update. Select and upload the file you have previously downloaded at the beginning of this article. Follow the instructions in the image below.
After you click OK at STEP 1 a new pop up window will appear with the following message: The system cannot be shut down during the update. Do you want to continue? Click Yes. Wait approximatively 2 minutes for the update to be completed. Follow the instructions in the image below.
If everything went well, you should see the new SRM Version 1.3.1-9316 correctly installed.
I also installed the new version on my MR2200ac Synology Mesh router. I had to reset it first, but after that, the Mesh router was immediately detected in my network.
The new SRM 1.3.1 will be installed automatically once a new Wi-Fi Point is added.
Everything works like a charm.
Note: After conducting all necessary tests, I have come to the conclusion that everything works perfectly in this Release Candidate 1.3.1-9316. Wi-Fi 6, Mesh Wi-Fi Point, Threat Prevention, VLAN, Port Forwarding etc.
Note: Not only has the upgrade to SRM 1.3.1-9316 been made available for download, but so has the new version of Threat Prevention 1.3.1-0905 which finally fixes a security vulnerability regarding Suricata. Full Threat Prevention Changelog.
Note: New version of Safe Access 1.3.1-0326 is available. Full Safe Access Changelog.
Note: When you manually download an update for your Synology router from the Synology Archive, you will notice 3 different package names (cypress, ipq806x, dakota) which are for the 3 different routers. Cypress is the package for the RT6600ax, ipq806x is the package for the RT2600ac and dakota is the package for the MR2200ac.
