Hi all,

Any chance one of you guys could somehow send the beta firmware to me as Netgear have gone totally silent on my request and my £1500 setup is just redundant at the moment....

If you can it would be greatly appreciated.

 

John

@jltleeds I would suggest lodging a ticket for this if you would like to get one. 

They have asked we not just send the beta out as I am sure they would prefer not having the non-official releases out there.

As you can see from this post there has been a lot of time spent on this. 

I cannot imagine the updated release will be too far away.

@MrJoshW 

 

Hi, thank you for that. Netgear this morning sent me the beta (4.3.1.100 - hopefully the correct one) so I will install tonight and test, see what happens...

 

Thanks John

Re: SXK80 Satellites turn pink as soon as I use VLAN tagged network

I am concerned to see this as I was planning to upgrade to the SXK50 or SXK80 specifically to use as an AP with VLANs.

 

I use an Orbi RBK today as router and wifi because I did not know it lacked vlan support when originally purchased it. This is no longer acceptable with three people working at home and two of us having a fair amount of work specific hardware provided to us for use at home.

 

I will temporarily setup a pfsense router as I am familiar with it, but my company will be providing an SD-WAN device as the main router and will configure VLAN's to split my work domain from all the other stuff in the home. I like the brand and use several netgear switches also.

 

I can understand Netgear wanting to manage the whole pie, but if they are not working well as a pure AP, I need to look elsewhere. Any status update on this firmware fix becoming GA for all of these devices?

@redeagle45 you can move with confidence. Beta has been very solid for 3 weeks now.  GA should be in July, this is what support told me.

Is it possible to get this firmware sent to me? I am experiencing what appears to be a similar issue related to satellite traffic dropping vlan tagged traffic.

Other than SXK80/50/30 that work in router as well as AP mode.

NETGEAR has multiple WAX6xx series of APs,  WAX200 series of APs that support VLAN per SSID tagging.

depending on your usecase, one of these should fit well with the solution.

If you have  PFsense router. Here are the options

 

PF-senserouter/gateway====Poe+Switch=====WAX6xxx. (WAX610/WAX620/WAX610Y etc). (supports wired/wireless backhauls. Easy to setup with Insight cloud UI.  needs more skills to set up wireless backhauls via AP's local UI)

PF-senserouter/gateway=====Poe+Switch====WAX214v2/WAX220 (PoE APs, wired backhauls only)

 

PF-senserouter/gateway=========WAX202/206 (desktop APs, wired backhauls only)

PF-senserouter/gateway=========SXR80(in AP mode)  (supports wired/wireless backhauls. easy to setup with locl UI)

Re: SXK80 Satellites turn pink as soon as I use VLAN tagged network

I'm looking for this beta release as well and would like to join the beta group of possible.
Same problems with AP mode and VLANs configured in combination with an OPNsense firewall.

Also I wonder if there will be an update to remove the need of a full router and satellite restart, when any VLAN is changed. This will disconnect all clients and satellites if the network configuration is not fully static. I'd expect this from a business product.

Thanks in advance!
