RBS850 Out of Sync error


RBS850 Out of Sync error

Lately, whenever I reboot the router my living room satellite comes up "Out of Sync" - I need to go over and power it down and back up to get a "Good" status.


This node has been problematic in the past - but it seems that Netgear aggresively resists replacing any equipment.


Is this normal? The Pro Support guy seemed to indicate it is.


Don't think it happened before - but then again it didn't happen when I first put on this firmware so I don't think it's a software issue.


Does this happen to anyone else?

Usually a good power OFF of the RBR and RBS takes care of that from what Ive experienced. Or a remove the RBS from the RBRs web page, factory reset the RBS and manually re-sync it. Give it like 5 minutes after it reconnects.

Re: RBS850 Out of Sync error

Furrye38's suggestions are precisely what I've done in the past with an out of sync satellite. I had bought the one satellite 850 version, then bought a second satellite and that one has always been a bit problematic. But a factory reset followed by a manual resync seems to have kept it nicely stable.
