Orbi RBR50/RBS50 firmware V2.5.2.4 update severely slowed wireless download speed

After my Orbi RBR50/RBS50 router and satellite were updated to firmware V2.5.2.4, It has severely slowed the wireless download speed from 440mbps to 3mbps. For the most part the upload speed appears to not be impacted. Both router and satellite have the same firmware version. I have rebooted, as well as power cycled the modem router and satellite, to no avail. My internet is provided by TING Fiber @ 1gbps. Also, it seemed that after first updating the RBR50 router, everything was working well regarding wireless download speed but the problems seemed to occur after updating the RBS50 satellite to the same new firmware version. Do I need to reinstall the software on just the satellite again, after a reset to factory settings, or do both, or is there another less drastic solution? I am not sure what I now need to do, or for that matter, How.?

Has a power off for 1 minute then back on been performed since last update? If this fails, try a factory reset and setup from scratch...

Yes I power cycled all after the update. I am going to perform a factory reset next. Thanks
