Greetings @RocketSquirrel

 

Thank you for your interest in participating!  Are there specific issues that you are experiencing that I can ask the engineering team to confirm has been fixed in this release?  

 

Thank you kindly,

Christine


Yes, @ChristineT, a couple of issues. Thanks for asking.

 

1. Setting up wired backhaul is a long, frustrating process. Instructions imply it should "just work", but users (including me) have experienced network storms and long waits for stabilization before wired backhaul begins to work.

 

2. Wired Orbis tend not to recover after a power glitch, bringing down the entire LAN. They require tender loving care and quite a bit of time to get back up and running. A split-second power glitch has caused me to spend 30-60 minutes baby-sitting my network to get it up again. (I now have all 3 Orbis on UPSes.)

 

3. The QOS GUI page confuses users because there's nothing there but a speed test.

Exactly. I will not be interested in testing the beta firmware unless it fixes all the convergence issues with wired backhaul

Hello @toe,

 

I can confirm we have seen some positive feedback about backhaul functionality but would really appreciate your feedback. I'd be happy to provide access this beta forum if you're interested. Please let me know how you'd like to proceed.

 

Kind Regards,

Christine

I always have issues with the wired backhaul coming back up after a system reboot or power outage.  To fix the issue I have to physically disconnect the ethernet cable from the Orbi Satellite (RBS50).  Then reboot the Orbi Satellite to allow it to establish a wireless connection with the Orbi Router (RBR50).  After a wireless connection is established and shows as a "Connected Satellite" under attached devices I can then reconnect the ethernet cable to the Orbi Satellite.  2-5 minutes later it then shows wired as the "Connection Type".  At that point everything is back to normal.
