Yes, this software is currently in beta testing. I have it in my system.

Try a factory reset on the system and setup from scratch. 

 

What is the Mfr and model# of the ISP modem the NG router is connected too?
Is the Orbi system operating in Router or AP mode?

What is the size of your home? Sq Ft?
What is the distance between the router and satellite(s)? 30 feet is recommended in between them to begin with depending upon building materials.

 

What channels are you using? Auto? Try setting manual channel 1, 6 or 11 on 2.4Ghz and any unused channel on 5Ghz.
Any Wifi Neighbors near by? If so, how many?
What WPA security modes are you using?

Try enabling Beamforming and MIMO.

Hi @dan801

 

FW 2.3.0.32 is now available on our support site : 

https://kb.netgear.com/000060603/RBR50-RBS50-Firmware-Version-2-3-0-32

 

Can you please describe further the WiFi issues you're facing with this firmware? Is it the WiFi speed? WiFi stability? WiFi clients cannot connect to the network? 

 

Do you experience this issue with the previous firmware 2.2.1.210? 

 

Regards,
Blanca

@dan801 The 2.3.0.32 FW you received is the offical FW not a beta you received it as part of limited FW push to test the FW process. What kind of WiFi issues are you having can you provide a brief description of that?

They haven’t released it for automatic update yet. You need to manually install images via orbilogin.com that you download from Netgear myprepaidcenter
