Orbi RBR 50 dropping wifi connection with Circle enabled

I've noticed that our wifi is dropping away several times per day when Circle is enabled. After disabling Circle, the connection is stable. Since Circle was one of the reasons for buying the Orbi, disabling it is not a fix. The issue was occuring on firmware 2.3.1.48.

I too noticed this. I upgraded my firmware in hopes of it stopping and am currently waiting ot see what happens next.

I've upgraded my firmware to 2.3.1.60 and tested over the weekend, but the result is the same. Will have to do a factory reset next and try again.

I had the same issues without Circle enabled.  I have purchased a new Orbi RBR50 and am testing without Armor enabled.  No dropouts.  After a week or so I will enable again to see if it was the old router or an issue with Armor.
