Orbi WiFi 7 RBE973

New SXK80 Firmware Version


New SXK80 Firmware Version

New Features:

  • Supports Business VPN service with Insight IM-6.3. This feature is available by subscription for devices in Insight-managed networks. 
  • Adds power table for China. 


Bug Fixes:

  • Fixes VPN pass-through issue in standalone mode. 
  • Fixes a crash issue on UL OFDMA in STA mode during AP operation. 
  • Other stability fixes for AP operation.


Known Issues:

  • After updating the router firmware, existing clients can be steered to the router because the wireless readiness in the router is faster than the wireless readiness in the satellite.
    Workaround: Connected clients might notice slower throughput or a weaker signal, which resolves when the user roams or reconnects.  
  • WPA3-Enterprise might not work with iPhone 11 (supports 802.11ax) and above on iOS 14 and above.
    Workaround: Do not use WPA3-Enterprise. 
  • The device UI can be accessed via the default VLAN network only.
    Workaround: Connect to a WiFi network that uses the default VLAN profile when you want to access the device UI.

Firmware Update Instructions:

If the Orbi Pro WiFi 6 is connected to the Insight cloud, perform a firmware update through the firmware schedule policy, or manually perform a firmware update using the Insight app or device UI.

To update the Orbi Pro WiFi 6 firmware from the device UI, follow the instructions in your product’s user manual. The user manual is available on the SXK80 product support page.

We highly recommend updating the satellite firmware first and then updating the router firmware.

After updating to the latest firmware, make sure to update your version of the NETGEAR Insight app for the best functionality and user experience.
