Re: ORBI RBS750 no longer stable in v4.6.3.7 - Possible downgrade assistance

Have you tried a full factory reset on the system then pullled the power adpaters for the RBR and RBS for 1 minute then plug back in then setup from scratch?

Re: ORBI RBS750 no longer stable in v4.6.3.7 - Possible downgrade assistance

Yea like I mentioned, I'm not interested in rebuilding my entire network especially when others have tried the reset option to no avail. I thought it was pretty much agreed that this is a Netgear firmware issue since v4.6.3.7 was forced upon us. Has Netgear taken responsiblity to resolve this issue with a patch and is there a timeframe yet?

Has a power off for 1 minute then back ON with the ISP modem and Orbi system been performed since last update?

Anyone know how we can download that? Could that finally be the long awaited stability fix???  Is it compatible with RBS750?

I see you posting this all over, to contact support, but maybe you should contact support to let them know a Beta is available becuase I just did and they don't know about the beta and don't have access to it. Just spent 30 minutes with them and they have no clue. 

 

So people, don't contact support, they don't know about the beta and it will just result in a waste of your time.

Not that I'm aware of or if it has, not sure if anyone responded. 

 

Was certainly a odd event on mine since I had been using v4 in router mode and hadn't seen any problems up until I factory reset using the ERASE button and encountered those problems and reproduced the boot loop issue on the RBS. Leaving my system OFF until the next day cleared it up. I don't believe 24hours unplugged is needed. It was just the time frame that I stopped trying to figure out the problem and left it until the next day after I got home from work. Then started working for me. Crazy for sure. Smiley Embarassed

Re: ORBI RBS750 no longer stable in v4.6.3.7 - Temp Solution

***TEMPORARY FIX ($$) FOR RBS750 SATELLITE FIRMWARE V4.6.3.7 STABALITY ISSUE***

So after much frustration with the Firmware V4.6.3.7 disaster, I tried something that actually worked...however it goes against my normal willingness to do so. My original setup was at&t fiber (zero issues) in passthrough mode to my Orbi RBR750 in router mode with a backhaul (wired via CAT6) RBS750 satellite which worked well for over a year until the V4.6.3.7 firmware made everything unstable (4-5 outages per day).

 

After rebooting, power cycling, etc. everything to no avail, I purchased a new RBS850 Satellite that came with FW V4.6.3.9 and REPLACED my RBS750 Satellite. (I was planning to add a third anyway and figured I could return it if this didn't work.) Since I made the swap, I have had zero outages and it's going on 4 days!  In my opinion based on this test, the issue is with running an Orbi satellite with V4.6.3.7.

 

ORIGINAL = att Fiber >> RBR750 Router FW V4.6.3.7_2.0.49 >> RBS750 Satellite FW V4.6.3.7 

FIXED = att Fiber >> RBR750 Router FW V4.6.3.7_2.0.49 >> RBS850 Satellite FW V4.6.3.9 

 

Now I STILL need the V4.6.3.7 Satellite issue fixed so I can add my RBS750 back to my network for a third AP so if Netgear could respond with acknowledgement and resolution timeframe, many customers including me may decide not to rip everything out and start over…
