New Orbi RBR50/RBS50 Firmware Version 2.3.1.44

I see a bunch of post around the firmware release of Version 2.3.1.44 ... i had the RBR50 and one RBS50 update, but one RBS50 did not.  I cannot find where to go in order to download the new firmware.  It is not an option on the typical download page.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I also have RBS50Y which will not connect running 2.2.1.204 firmware which i am unable to get connected as well.

 

Model: RBR50| Orbi AC3000 Tri-band WiFi (Router Only), RBS50| Orbi AC3000 Tri-band WiFi (Satellite Only)

There is no direct download for version .44 as of this time.   You have to manually update to .32 per other threads in here and then your Orbi will automatically update to .44.

 

Note: 

  • Update Satellites first.
  • Update Router to intermediate "speed bump" version to allow for larger firmware images (see threads on that explain in detail how)
  • Update router to V.32
  • After final reboot go to Web Gui and firmware page and it will show you .44 is available.

But not for every device in every location.

 

The RBR40 is stuck on older firmware here in the UK.

Thank you for the response ... yes everything was updated to .32 ... on the automatic update, the router RBR50 and one RBS50 updated to .44 .... i had one RBS50 which did not update, so it's stuck in the .32 firmware version.  I have been unable to get it to reconnect so i assume it's related to being on a different firmware version.
