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.
  • When the SXR80 router is connected to multiple SXS30 and SXS80 satellites, it is possible that the SXS30 satellite cannot ping the SXR80 router, and the bar LED lights magenta. However, clients can still access the SXS30 satellite and the Internet.
    Workaround: Reboot the SXS30 satellite and the SXR80 router.
  • When the SXR80 router is connected to multiple SXS30 and SXS80 satellites, wireless clients that connect to wireless network 3 with the VLAN feature enabled cannot access the Internet.
    Workaround: Reload the wireless configuration or disable the VLAN feature on wireless network 3.


Read and follow these warnings before updating your firmware:

  • If WPA2/WPA3 Mixed mode is enabled on wireless 1, you must reapply WPA2/WPA3 Mixed mode after upgrading the firmware.

Firmware Update Instructions:

If the Orbi Pro 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 local browser interface.

To update the Orbi Pro firmware from the local browser interface, follow the instructions in your product’s user manual. To find your user manual, visit https://www.netgear.com/support/, enter your model number in the search box, and click Documentation on the product 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
