RBR50 Slow Speeds and Intermittent Connection

I have an rbr50 system (1 router, 2 satellites) purchased from Costco one year ago. System was working fine until latest firmware update. I have it in AP mode with Comcast modem. Every 12-24 hours, the speed of the satellites slows to around 40mbs. After resetting the satellites, the speed jumps back up to 250mbs, but drops back down to 40mbs 12-24 hours later. I am now having to reset the satellites every day which should not be the case. Anyone have similar issue?

What is the Mfr and model# of the ISP modem the NG router is connected too?

Try a Factory reset and setup from scratch.

Is the Orbi system operating in Router or AP mode?

Try a factory reset and setup from scratch.

I have an Arris SB8200 modem. My connection randomly stops altogether. Rebooting the Orbi base fixes the problem. Never had to do this until last few weeks. Nothing has changed hardware-wise.

If the FW was updated via auto update, please try a factory reset and set up from scratch.

Tried as suggested. Still randomly cuts connection to internet. Reboot router only and works again.

Try a Manual FW load:
