Looking for a select group of Orbi Community members that are interested in beta testing firmware

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.

 

If you’d like to participate and provide feedback in our Orbi Beta Firmware Community please post a reply to this topic with “I’d like to participate in the Orbi Beta Firmware Community” or send a private message to @Christian_R to be granted access. By requesting to participate, you agree to share your feedback strictly within the Orbi Beta Firmware Community. You will receive a private message once your username has been added as a participant.

 

We look forward to working with you!

I’d like to participate in the Orbi Beta Firmware Community.

 

Just to check, does this mean going forward there will be three firmware channels for end users (i.e. Beta Firmware Community, Community Forum, and General Release), or just two channels (i.e. Beta Firmware Community, and General Release including Community Forum)?

Been having some 5ghz issues (I think that is the problem) and would love to see if this firmware fixes it.

Hello @bryandmlee,

 

This is a great question! Thank you for allowing me to clarify. This invitation is dedicated to Orbi Beta Firmware. The other channels could be for Beta Testing new products, firmware and/or software that is not exclusively Orbi. :-)

 

 @jcalex22@craigbailey18@bryandmlee, and @wexwap, Please check your private messages for further instructions and a link to the community.

 

Best Regards,

ChristineT

Apologies @ChristineT, what I meant regarding firmware channels is: after 1) the Orbi Beta Firmware Community has tested say v2.2, will it then be posted in 2) the main Orbi community forum (https://community.netgear.com/t5/Orbi/bd-p/Orbi) for a while first before later 3) being available on the Orbi support pages & via firmware update for everybody? Or will it just go from 1) Orbi Beta Firmware Community straight to 2) full release on Orbi support pages & via firmware update for everyone (i.e. no more separate posts in the main Orbi community forum like Orbi firmware update v2.1.4.16 availability)?

I've had tremendous trouble with the current beta software for the RBR & RBS 50s, and anything I can do to hasten functioning software, I'm in.
