Mesh Network with Backhaul

I have the RBS 750 Mesh network with 2 satellites installed. I have backhauled my older Orbi, RBS20 into the 750 router.  Everything worked fine for about a year.  Now, I have no access to my router via webpage.  and my Orbi app on my iPhone cannot access the RBS750.  Funny, it is still running traffic, I can connect and get internet access, it backhauls the older networks just fine.  I I just have no access to the admin gui so I can check my port forwarding in the advanced tab.  I am getting a connection refused, check firewall and proxy settings.  I can ping 192.168.1.1; the router IP, I just cant connect.

 

Thoughts?

NG is aware of this. Seems to be working on a fix currently. 

Was your FW updated that you know of recently? 

 

Are you try HTTP instead of HTTPS with 192.168.1.1? 

 

What happens if you power OFF the RBR. Disconnect it from the ISP modem, then back ON and try HTTP and 192.168.1.1?

Re: Mesh Network with Backhaul

I have tried http:  https:  I have also disconnected everything.  Restart the modem, wait for it to fully cycle and begin operation.  I then connect the RBS750, apply power, so that it can grab a fresh connection.  Then try the 192.168.1.1 and it still refuses connection.

My only other step left is to take my laptop, hardwire connection into one of the ports and see if I can connect that way.

Last resort maybe a factory reset or a 30/30/30 reset on the RBR.
