TP-LINK TD-8816 Version 3.2 firmware

I have a TP-Link TD-8816 ADSL modem+ router, version 3.20
Looked for a same or newer firmware on TP-LINK support/download webpage, however only User Guide/Install Guide listed there......NO FIRMWARE FOR VERSION 3 !
My google search also found nothing for version 3.

When emailed to TP-LINK Customer Support, received the following reply:
"You can download the firmware version for V4. They share the same firmware."

However, on the download page, they also say:
"Please verify the hardware version of your device for the firmware version.Wrong firmware upgrading may damage your device and void the warranty"

Did anyone used a Version 4 firmware on a Ver:3.20 device ?



Ontario, GTA
Received a following email from TP-Link.
Followed instruction, and used version 4 firmware.
Upgrade went well...did a factory restart after

Modem still shows:

Firmware Version : 3.0.2 Build 090522 Rel.24389

I guess, sharing the same firmware means, the version 4 model is using firmware made for version 3 !

You can download the firmware version for V4. They share the same firmware.
