Firmware update (automatic, through Orbi app or manual with connect laptop)

My current setup is an Orbi Router with 3 Satellites.

Two Satellites are connectes to the Router and the third Satellite is connect to another Satellite.

 

I noticed that there is a new firmware update 2.1.4.16, but all my Orbi's are still on v2.1.4.10.

 

Why is my system not automatically detecting that there is a new firmware available?

 

When I do a check for updates in Router Settings on my Orbi App (version 2.2.0.363), I get the message "Wait about five minutes while your orbi checks for new firmware", änd after a few minutes I get the response "Your system is up-to-date" or it stays in the previous messages for ever, but without a firmware update.

Why is my system not updating through the Orbi App?

 

So, the only way to update the system is manually, with a laptop connected to the Orbi system.

NG may have pulled v.16 from the auto update servers. I would not worry about.

 

If your systems is working, then don't fix it. Your not gaining anything with attemping an update.

Yes, my system is working OK, but I did receive an email from Netgear:

 

Don't Forget! We've Enhanced Your RBR50 Product Security. Update to the latest firmware!

I know that it will be fine, but I had expected that the functionality of Firmware update was working in the Orbi App, when the new Firmware is to download on the website of Netgear.

You might ask the forum Moderator if there is a problem with the app.

I updated my firmware manually. My reasoning is, that if the update software is as bad as the Orbi firmware, I don't want to trust it. My manual update went perfectly.
