Please navigate to the link below for step-by-step instructions on how to update your RBR750/RBS750:

Be sure to update the RBS FIRST, then the RBR lastly. 


NOTE: Orbi app or the routers web page may not report seeing new FW updates. NG may not push this to there auto update services immediately and may activate the newer FW update being seen on there auto update services at a later time. User will have the choice to manually update if you want too.


NOTE: The Disable Auto Update feature only prevents ANY new FW from being installed if available. This does NOT prevent the system from checking NG services to see if new FW is available. If new FW is available, this will be displayed as a notification to the user on the RBRs web page only. It will be up to the user to upgrade FW or not. 


A factory reset maybe needed if problems are encountered after the FW update:

NOTE: Recommend setting the default DHCP IP address pool range to the following after applying and a factory reset: 192.168.#.100 to 192.168.#.200


This article applies to:

Which this includes the RBR750 and RBS350 seeing with in the RBK650 series box sets. DO NOT USE this FW for RBK750 series kit systems (RBR750/RBS750).

Re: New - RBK653 Firmware Version Released

I was able to update my RBS350 Sats that were included with my RBR750. In my case the RBR750 had upgraded to by itself and the satellites did not auto update. As a result the satellites were constantly out of sync, errors, etc and not working correctly because they were behind on firmware.

I had to log into them manually after figuring out their two dedicated local IPs. The username/password is the same as the main router for other users that may be coming from google / elsewhere to find a solution.

This fixed that, thank you!
