To update your product’s firmware, follow the instructions in your product’s user manual.

To find your user manual, visit https://www.netgear.com/support/,

If you manually update, be sure to update the RBS first, then RBR lastly.

NOTE:  Update the RBS first, then the RBR lastly. After the FW files are loaded and the RBS and RBR are ready, power OFF the RBS and RBR for 2 minutes then back ON.

Unplug the power adapters from the power wall outlet. 

 

A factory reset maybe needed if problems are encountered:

Re: New - RBR850 / RBS850 Firmware Version v4.6.7.5 Released

Thanks for posting.  Let us know on the release notes...I'm nervous to do another upgrade since the 4.6.6.11 has been solid for me thus far after months of fustration.

My Setup: FIOS ISP(940Mbps/880Mbps), ISP provided gateway (router/modem FIOS-G1100), RBR850 (AP Mode) with 2 wired backhaul satellites via Cat 6 & 5e

How long will it take for this to show up in the mobile app (not there as an option now) to update natively vs download and update?

Don't know. This version of FW is mainly to get users up and running better due to all the problems and complaints users have been discussing. Were hoping this new version brings stability and better operation to all. I persume NG will publish this or something later. NG is looking for some feedback on this from the community. 

 

Currently users can manually download and manually install the FW. Links in the 1st post give information on how to update FW on the RBS then the RBR.

Understand but I think this is a key distinction to update the FW in the way 95% of NG customers will, which is more automated through the app and even the https://www.netgear.com/support/product/rbr850.aspx#download official support page doesn't show this version yet.

Re: New - RBR850 / RBS850 Firmware Version v4.6.7.5 Released

I've had really good results with the unofficial 4.6.6.11 release so I'm very hopeful for this slightly newer, more official version.

 

I'll install it tomorrow morning and let you all know how it goes.

 

Thanks as always to @FURRYe38 for all these efforts on our behalf.

Hoping v5 here will be same if not better. I'll be loading mine up this evening or tomorrow. Very curious about it.

Thanks for this. I felt a bit nervous about trying as the 4.6.6... had been so good, but decided to do my part in testing. The install was very smooth. I think they have definitely improved the wireless links between router and satellites. I'm getting faster throughput than before. So far so good.

Re: New - RBR850 / RBS850 Firmware Version v4.6.7.5 Released

Thanks for the heads up @FURRYe38 , I upgraded like an hour ago, so far no issues, but that's too early to tell lol. Let's see how it goes once I start  streaming 4K HDR later on today and in the days ahead.

 

I upgraded the Satellite first, Then the main unit. Then I power cycled everything by powering off the Satellite, then the main unit, then my Comcast XB7 gateway (In that order). I then waited like 4 minutes and proceeded to do the reverse and turn everything back on.

 

Cheers!

Re: New - RBR850 / RBS850 Firmware Version v4.6.7.5 Released

Thanks for the material @FURRYe38. I went ahead and installed the FW on an RBR853 system using the standard procedures; RBS followed by the RBR. After unplugging everything for two minutes I went ahead using the standard power on sequence. So far it appears the settings under the Advanced/Wireless section have stayed user defined. The installation process was seamless but the satellites appeared to take longer to connect than previously experienced but I did not time it to confirm. I'll let everyone know how it goes.

Has this offically been forced, I mean released, to all users?  

 

I honestly don't want to take the time to mess with this until an official release is provided.

Not officially in production so if your system is working without issues then it's probably best not to beta test.

LOL is anyone's system working without issues unless hacked back to an old firmware blocking updates?

Re: New - RBR850 / RBS850 Firmware Version v4.6.7.5 Released

Things fine after about 12 hours. The only thing (that may or may not be related to updating to this version) is one of my satellites went out of sync overnight. I resynced manualy and now it is fine. This particular satellite had real problems with an earlier firmware but was totally fine after a 30/30/30 reset and then later upgrading to 4.6.6.X after - this was a satellite that was "added on", i.e. I had bought a two pack and then added this one on as an extra and I think that has always made it slightly problematic.

I also noticed this: the "blinking white" phase of the satellite sync seemed to last much longer than before on both of my satellites, although they're working fine now that's completed.

 

No problems to report so far. The Device Summary screen on orbilogin.com is wildly inaccurate - it's reporting a lot of my devices as Wired when I know they're not - but that's nothing new, it's not worked properly on any Orbi firmware I've tried and it's not something I use regularly anyway.

The URL to download that firmware is not an official netgear one: it is a file shared through SalesForce.com hence probably only aimed at specific customers (either as something experimental or fixing a user-specific issue, ...hoping that it is not a hack).

I find the thread very interesting but I am personally definitely not going to try to setup that firmware without having some officialization by NetGear first. Up to you.
