MIsmatching router/satellite firmware.

This may be a silly question... But my orbi purchased in december of 2017 from amazon and it has model number RBR40 for the router and RBS20 for the satellites.   I see that there is a new beta firmware for the router that might help connection drops and reboots.  But there is no corresponding firmware for the RBS20 satellites.   

 

My questions are:

 

1. Is it odd that my firmware is RBR40 and RBS20?

2. Will there be a beta firmware for the rbs20?

I will have to check if there is a beta firmware for the RBS20.

Thanks that would be appreciated.  Also is there any issue with running this combination of models?

Re: MIsmatching router/satellite firmware.

I have the RBR20 with firmware 2.1.4.10 and a satellite RBS20 connected via ethernet cable thru a TP-Link gigabit switch.  The firmware for the RBS20 is V2.0.0.64 and when I try to check firmware to update to newest version the status says "Service unreachable" in the status column in the Firmware Update page. 

 

Is this an issue becuase of the wire connection?

Just manually download the FW file for your RBS20 then manually install it to the RBS20.
