FIRMWARE V1.11.0.20 (Did it help?)

Noticed there was a new update once I logged into the router so went ahead and updated the router and satellite. I am hoping this will eliminate much of the intermitent drops. I have not been able to pinpooint the exact drop issues, just know that they are intermitent from various devices and they come back online pretty quickly. Never noticed this on the previous router I had in place.

 

Anyone else find good results with the latest release? Based on the feedback from beta users, this looks like a significant release. Went from the previous stable V1.10.1.2 to V1.11.0.20.

Hello Everyone

 

We have release firmware version 1.12.0.18 this firmware has fixes for disconnects and many more I posted the release notes below.

 

https://kb.netgear.com/000044171/RBR50-Firmware-Version-1-12-0-18

 

If you are still having issues after updating your Orbi unit you may want to factory reset the Orbi and test again. If you are still having disconnect issues or other issues with this firmware please create a new thread or contact our support team.

Notice the update when logged on at 6:30 pm Pacific time. Too soon to tell, although my setup running 25 devices on the last FW was running pretty smoothly. Only time I had a issue is when I ran a speed check from my phone and my router shut down, had to reset my modem all the time to get back on line. Going to see if it will happen with the new FW update.

Just did the wifi speed test, and no lock UPS, and faster speeds up and down. Not by much, but a tick faster.
Let's hope it's more stable for the guys that were getting drops😎

This FW Version does not yet address the WIFI drop issues.

This is officially announced by DarrenM Modertor in other threads.

In the latest Beta FW, the USB port is actually opened for Printer Network Share function.

So looks like this may be at minimum be the first USB function to be released soon.

try putting a usb dongle ( with somefiles on it )  in the orbi router and open a windows explorer window and type \\192.168.1.1 ( or what even default gateway you are using ) and see what happens , you may be pleasently surprised

It made all the difference in my setup. I now have consistent connections with my iDevices when connected to the satellite.

When it drops, how long does it take to connect again?

 

And do you see the Wifi logo disappear or does it show full strength? If so, it may be the backhaul dropping and not your connection to the satellite.
