MacBook Pro Looses Connection -- Reconnecting Solves It


MacBook Pro Looses Connection -- Reconnecting Solves It

Hey guys;


Just wanted to check in.  My RBK50 with 2 sats is much more stable since the last firmware release.


My last remaining problem seems to be with my Apple laptops.  Connection dies at random (still connected, but no throughput).  This might be tied to the Mac going to sleep -- still trying to sort that out.


All I need to do to fix it is disconnect from WiFi and reconnect.  Bingo.


Just posting this in case it is helpful for support/engineering.  


Orbi guys -- it's been a rough couple of months, but I know your engineers are working like crazy to make things better.  Please let them know that we appreciate the ongoing efforts.

I have the same issue. I have to disconnect and reconnect manually. Pretty annoying
