Orbi WiFi 7 RBE973




My Orbi RBR40 has been intermittently disconnecting from the internet. I ended up doing a reset. But I now cannot even connect to the internet to complete setup.
Firmware is up to date. Using with a Netgear CM1000 cable modem. Direct connect from modem bypassing the Orbi connects okay.
Any suggestions?

Re: RBR40

Did you reboot the whole network in the specified order?

Be sure to restart your network in this sequence:

  • Turn off and unplug the modem.
  • Turn off the modem router and computers.
  • Plug in the modem and turn it on. Wait 2 minutes.
  • Turn on the modem router and wait 2 minutes.
  • Turn on the computers.
