Thx ralaud for the fast reply... I decided to go ahead and try the luci install via WinSCP as shown in the YouTube video and that fixed it so I am thinking that the official release does not include it after all? Anyway I am in my route now! So glad to be off that original.. bug ridden TP-Link firmware!!!
Anyway thanks again for all the help and to everyone else here on this forum! Also anyone one else out there with the Spanish model in Colombia (and probably anywhere else in South America) you are safe to install this and you really should install this to be free of the VPNFilter malware. And while mi espanol es bueno... I am happy to be back to a router in English
