NOTE: Orbi app or the routers web page may not report seeing new FW updates. NG may not push this to there auto update services immediately and may activate the newer FW update being seen on there auto update services at a later time. User will have the choice to manually update if you want too.

NOTE: The Disable Auto Update feature only prevents ANY new FW from being installed if available. This does NOT prevent the system from checking NG services to see if new FW is available. If new FW is available, this will be displayed as a notification to the user on the RBRs web page only. It will be up to the user to upgrade FW or not. 

 

Best,

I've tried this version of FW and can confirm that the mysterious reboots no longer happen with email logging disabled after a factory reset. Hope this works for everyone else that saw this issue on prior versions of FW.

Color me scared to install.  The current firmware seems to need a daily reboot to maintain clients.  However, the current firmware also doesn't detect that there's any newer firmware available.  I know my model, and this should work, why isn't it detected?

I skipped the previous version but might try and play the Netgear lottery this weekend. Having the option to disable automatic updates sounds nice.

 

Plus hoping I don't randomly lose my guest network anymore and never was able to work out why my Samsung TV wouldn't reconnect to wifi since the 4.6.x updates, so hoping that might be magically fixed too.

Be sure to save off a new back up configuration to file for safe keeping. Saves time if a reset is needed.

Re: New - RBR750/RBS750 Firmware Version 4.6.9.11 Released

Applied this fw yesterday (updated from 4.6.8.5)

I did not have any issues with 4.6.8.5, but i liked the option to disable automatic updates just so you can plan your updates rather than an update happening just before F1 race (for example)

First i could not find this option in the new fw, but it is "hidden" in the advanced/Administration/firmware page but strangely enough on the "Manual update" tab.. 

I performed the update by individually updating the RBS satellites one by one, I waited for every satellite to complete and connect to the RBR again before going to the next. Finally updated the RBR. the whole process took about 20 minutes (4 satellites, 1 Router). I did not power cycle anything before, during or after the update.

Finally also disabled the log emails.

After updating to V4.6.8.5_2.1.9 on my satellites and router. I still have issues with majority of my devices connecting to the router even though the device is closer to the satellites. Is this normal? Is there anyway I can change this? Should I relocate my router seeing as majority of devices connect to that.

Did you update to v.5 or v.11? This thread is about the v.11 FW and experiences.

Re: New - RBR750/RBS750 Firmware Version 4.6.9.11 Released

Updated earlier this evening on my RBR750 and 2 RBS750 satellites, then took everything down and reset cable modem and the network.  The biggest issue I have so far is that it seems to have degraded my throughput and range…  When I run Speedtest on my iPad while I’m in the same room as the RBR750, I get a pretty decent reading — 11ms ping, 700+Mbps downstream, 40Mbps upstream — but if I move only one room away, my results are significantly lower:  25ms ping, 175-200Mbps downstream, 20Mbps upstream.  Previous firmware versions did not show that much of a drop, and I had pretty good (and uniform) coverage throughout the house.

 

Also, the Connection Type for my satellites on my Attached Devices list appears to have gone a little squiffy post-update as well.  At one point, 1 satellite was showing type as 2.4GHz and the other as wired (which it’s definitely not wired), but a few more refreshes of the list got them to finally both show 5GHz.

@RockTheGlobe @Talk2Mike 

Has a power off for 1 minute then back ON with the ISP modem and router been performed since last update?
Be sure to restart your network in this sequence:
Turn off and unplug modem.
Turn off router and computers.
Plug in and turn on modem. Wait 2 minutes for it to connect.
Turn on the router and wait 2 minutes for it to connect.
Turn on computers and rest of network.

 

Has a factory reset and setup from scratch been performed since last FW update?

Yes, all of those things were done.  I took down the entire network (including cable modem) for the better part of 5 minutes last night before powering everything back on, and I did reboot several devices (laptop, iPad, iPhone, etc.) as part of that process as well.

I just took down my 7 series after being online for 11+ days on this version of FW. Worked great. 
I use manual channel 1 and 40. SIP ALG enabled. 

DHCP IP address pool size of .100 to .150 for my needs.

50% power with a ethernet connected RBS out at around 35 feet. 

Armor and SPC disabled as I don't use them.
