ORBI RBR50V2 Iphone HELL!

Have been trying to get my Orbi RB50V2 to get my Iphones(X, 7, IOS14.2) to use the wireless network.  All other Apple products, Mabook Pro, Imac, Ipad, work wirelessly seemlessly, No Problem.  Iphones connect to Obri wirless network, but can not get to Internet.  When I forget the network and resign in I see the Wireless Icon on the phones flash on then off.  Have been talking to Netgear and they've tried and tried.  The answer they give is they'll email the Engineers @ Netgear and see if they have a fix or are working on.... 

I see other folks have the same or close to the same problem, just haven't seen one that will possibly work in my situation...

 

Fios Quantum Gateway as Modem, ORBI RBR50V2

Re: ORBI RBR50V2 Iphone HELL!

First off contact Apple since this is an Apple issue. Espeically if you other wifi devices work with Orbi. Apple has been known to make changes to there iOS that causes problems. 

 

What Firmware version is currently loaded?

 

One User Experience/Configuration:
https://community.netgear.com/t5/Orbi/Most-Stable-Orbi-Configuration/m-p/1941087/highlight/true#M970...

 

I haven't seen any issues with my iphone using iOS 14.2.1

 

Set a IP address reservation for the iphone on the RBR.

Re: ORBI RBR50V2 Iphone HELL!

Thank you for the reply FURRYe38, Apple was next on my Agaenda, just trying to see if Netgear had a fix.

 

Am on V2.7.1.60 on ORBI

 

Am a novice working the internals of RBR where would I find this to do?

Using a Pc or laptop, log into the RBRs web page at 192.168.1.1 or orbilogin.com and navigate to Advanced Tab/settings/LAN setup.
