Re: Any New Beta Firmware Soon?

I'm betting there won't be any for awhile. They were notified in January of a major vulnerability in many of their routers. They will be busy as none of the vulnerabilities have yet been patched.

 

Unpatched vulnerability identified in 79 Netgear router models

Found it fascinating that NO Orbi model numbers are on the list.  Sort of a toss up between, "aha. the NEW stuff uses the new software release" vs. "oh shoot, no one thought to test the new models."

I love my Orbi.
