Re: RBR850 frequently issuing DNS REFUSED responses

@Slara- Honestly, if you're still in the return window I would 100% recommend swapping the Orbi for something else. Even if you can get it working, it's not worth the trouble for something so expensive that should just work out of the box. Plus, every new firmware that fixes something tends to break other things.

The only way I've found to make this thing actually reliable is to stick it in access point mode and let something else play router for the network, and that's just not something that should have to be done with premium priced products like this.

Well since downgrading isn't support officially by NG, you might take the system back while you have the chance. I guess if your seeing thsi problem and NG is aware of it, would let them resolve it. It was resolved on a beta v3 months back however since v4 arrrived, for unknown reasons, NG doesn't support downgrading back to v3 from v4 even though users have found ways to down grade. Kind of technical for those who can do it. Otherwise, your best to take the system back while you have the chance now and maybe come back here later one and check to see if the problem has been resolved.

Yes, I agree. What’s another option similar to Orbi? I have a big lot and need good coverage. I’m done with Netgear. It’s been hell trying to fix this DNS issue and it’s affecting my school.
