Re: Looking for a select group of Orbi Community members that are interested in beta testing firmwar

Yes, there is a beta program (I was one of the first few in it), and I believe most of the first 14 or so pages of users would have been invited/added previously already. There *currently* isn't a beta version of the firmware though, after v2.2.210 was publicly released.

Greetings Orbi Community,

 

We are looking for a select group of Orbi Community members that are interested in beta testing current and upcoming Orbi firmware to help broaden our scope of use cases in real environments. We are kicking off this beta testing program with OrbiOS Rel. 2.2 that is currently available for testing. This release contains the following:

  • Significant bug fixes for stability & performance
  • Update on Guest WiFi Schedule usability
    • Update as of 8/22/18: Upon further investigation the Guest WiFi Scheduling feature has been removed from this release as it requires further testing. We will reintroduce this feature in an upcoming release. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

 

Please note: This Beta Firmware is available only for RBR50 & RBS50. Beta firmware for other Orbi systems will be available soon.

Possible that the beta testing opportunity is over since they started this last year and have had alot of people post. They may have acquired a certain amount of beta testers and may not long need any more.

Then they should close the thread or update it with new information. There are pages of people posting and getting no replies. If they can open a thread they can reply in it or close it.

I agree, they should close this thread if the beta opportunity is closed. 

Most of the correspondence for beta is being handled via PM. NG doesn't respond in this thread at all.
