Downgrade and then disable auto update rbr750

Hey guys, abour a year ago I was lucky to find an amazing post on how to downgrade to a stable firmware and disable auto update.

It worked for around a year until I moved and made the mistake to factory reset 😢 now back to small cuts that mess up all my calls.

I would love to find that post again but I cant find it on my bookmarks or history.

Please help RBR 750 back to crap 😢

Please @Fury? Anybody?

What Firmware version is currently loaded?
What is the Mfr and model# of the Internet Service Providers modem/ONT the NG router is connected too?
Be sure your using a good quality LAN cable between the modem and router. CAT6 is recommended. 

 

What is the size of your home? Sq Ft?
What is the distance between the router and 📡 satellite(s)? 30 feet or more is recommended in between RBR and RBS📡 to begin with depending upon building materials when wirelessly connected.

What channels are you using? Auto? Try Auto and 48 on 5Ghz. Or try setting manual channel 1, 6 or 11 on 2.4Ghz and 40 to 48 channel on 5Ghz.
Any Wifi Neighbors near by? If so, how many?

 

Current and last version of FW now supports disabling of Automatic Updates...

 

Has a power off for 1 minute then back ON with the ISP modem and router been performed since last update?
Be sure to restart your network in this sequence:
Turn off and unplug modem.
Turn off router and computers.
Plug in and turn on modem. Wait 2 minutes for it to connect.
Turn on the router and wait 2 minutes for it to connect.
Turn on computers and rest of network.

 

Has a factory reset and setup from scratch been performed since last FW update? A complete pull of the power adapters for a period of time after the factory reset then walk thru the setup wizard and setup from scratch.

Re: Downgrade and then disable auto update rbr750

Hey, ive tried it all, its the same as last year and I have enough of wasting hours of my life on making this netgear boxes work. 

Do you remember that article? about downgrading to 3. something version? That had worked wonders until I made a mistake and factory resetted it all. 

Please? 

That was the solution, you were in that discussion it was September last year. 

Please

Disabling of FW updates is only supported if v4.6.9.11 and beyond. 

Orbi 7 and 8 systems work on this version of FW.

Re: Downgrade and then disable auto update rbr750

I'm having the same issue...
The RBR750 is dropping the internet connection on wired and wireless every few minutes. I updated bot the RBR and RBS750 to the latest firmware. It seems to be less frequent, but it's dropping every 10-20 min now. I know it's the Orbi as I have a stable connection to the built in wifi of my cable modem.

I was just on with support and they told me to change the DNS to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 and wait for 24 hours to see if it happens again.
