Re: Latest Firmware V2.5.0.38

If you can access the RBRs UI you can reset it there using the ERASE feature. 

Would be recommended to reset the RBS as well. I would reset the RBS after you have the RBR set from scratch and up and running. Add the RBS at a later time.

Re: Latest Firmware V2.5.0.38

Can both devices be reset from the UI (router and satellite)?  If so, how?

 

Thanks!

Re: Latest Firmware V2.5.0.38

Only the RBR can be reset from the RBRs UI, Under Advaned Tab/Administration/Backup Settings. 

The RBS, press the reset button for 15 seconds then let go. Re-sync with sync button on RBR and RBS. Or add via RBRs UI to add there as well.

Re: Latest Firmware V2.5.0.38

Did you find a fix for the seperate wifi bands automatically joining again? Mine did the same after applying this update - After working perfectly for 18 months. I set up the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands again and it works, but after a few minutes, it rejoins them. Painful, as not everything on my network can deal with band steering.

 

Ridiculous that we even have to go through the telnet solution in the first place, given not every product can cope with band steering, but then to reset it after you specifically disable it is just plain stupid. The option to turn it off should be in the UI. Basic sh*t!.

Re: Latest Firmware V2.5.0.38

I'm having the same issue with 2.5.0.38. Also, after joining bands I see my upload speed over wifi went down from ~300Mbps to 30-40Mbps.  Quite frustrating.

Is there a way to rollback to previous firmware?

Re: Latest Firmware V2.5.0.38

I did learn something from all this carrying on at least. These advanced wireless settings? I have never used them.

I mean should I? Implicit Beamforming, MU-MIMO and Fast Roaming?

 

My speed seems to be very good but could it be better?

Re: Latest Firmware V2.5.0.38

Beamforming should be enabled. 

MIMO depends on if you have any MIMO supporting connected client devices or not. 

Fast Roaming can be if you want to give it a try. Supposed to help you while your on the wireless phone conversation and walking about. 

 

Can try them or disable them. I keep Beamforming enabled at all times.

Re: Latest Firmware V2.5.0.38

I upgraded without issue(for the most part). I run as vanilla a setup as it gets. Only change my DNS to OPENDNS and 2  wifi settings(enabled beamforming and MU-MIMO). I do not use guest access, Armor, or Circle services. Upgrade an rebooted without issue.

 

I dont really pay attention to the device list all too much. But I did notice that my ring doorbell pro device now has a name of "Homeboy" which was not there before. Anyone else have this?

 

Thanks

Thank you for your response.

I have 80 devices and they list OK in version 2.35.35 and I can rename and change icons.

Updated firmware and downgraded several times with the same results.

Re: Latest Firmware V2.5.0.38

First time ever I did a firmware update and had a problem similar to everyone else. After the update finished, my router turned on and 2 of 2 sattelites were disconnected.

 

Solution for me:

I unplugged the router and both sattelites. Then replugged. Both turned blue, but only one showed up as connected. So I went to the one sattelite that said disconnected and instead of doing the same thing, I took a paperclip and did a reset. And it worked. I'm sure this is a type of problem that has different solutions for everyone, but I'm glad I didn't have to do a factory reset.

Re: Latest Firmware V2.5.0.38

This may or may not help, and may or may not be pure coincidence - but reading the solutions (factory reset) presented made me irritated enough to post it as a suggestion -- in case it helps.

I decided to try to poke and bang it a little, so to speak, to see if anything came loose - I turned on "Access control" ( [Admin_Base_URL]/adv_index.htm ) - just turned it on, nothing else. After a few minutes, it started showing everything, Could be a coincidence - no idea.

 

One other thing: despite the web interface showing no satellites attached, I used a wireless card in "monitor mode" to verify that the routers were in fact connected and talking. (Aircrack-NG, Kismet, Bettercap etc - tools we don't talk about in polite conversation, but they help here!)

 

Best of luck!
