Satellite manually updated fine, but the router update doesn't work. I get the message

 

"Firmware file is incorrect! Please get the firmware file again and make sure it is the correct firmware for this product."

 

I'm defintiely trying to upload the RBR firmware not the RBS one.

I was able to update satellite but it won't update the router "This firmware file is incorrect! Please get the firmware file again and make sure it is the correct firmware for this product.". (file used for router was extraced from RBR50-V2.3.0.32.zip)

You do have a 50 series Orbi system correct? 

What browser are you using? Try IE11, FF or Opera. 

Besure to clear ALL browser caches, then exit the browser then re-open it then try again.

My RBR50 does not "see" this firmware update.  Is there a consistent pattern of the time between the firmware being available on the download site and the Orbi update mechanism learning of it?

I love my Orbi.

Just confirming that you have a 50 series Orbi system is all. I've tagged the mod's on this. 

 

Thanks.

Yes, I have the RBR50 and RBS50.  My reason for asking is perhaps more "idle curiosity" than anything else.  For two years now, my Orbi has silently updated firmware a number of time.  I note that some community members recommend manually downloading and installing the files (sometimes even suggesting a factory reset as part of the process).  When this thread appeared, I logged into the RBR50 and checked "Advanced->Administration->Firmware Update.  I know there is probably an internal clock setting that prevents every RBR50 from hitting the download site at the same instant (i.e. spread the downloads over a period of time, perhaps even a week or more).  I just thought it fascinating that manually checking for new firmware would return "nope.  nothing available."

 

The beta testers seem positive about this firmware.  My personal practice has been to let the public release unveil any "oops" moments before taking any action.   (Such as the comment a minute ago that the satellite updated fine and the router firmware seemed to be an invalid file.)

 

I love my Orbi.

This was posted from another thread from a forum Moderator

"The 2.3.0.32 FW you received is the offical FW not a beta you received it as part of limited FW push to test the FW process."

So NG seems to be limiting the push. To whom or how many, we'll not now probably. 

 

You'll have to keep checking to see. Who know when everyones 50 series will see it in the autoupdate. Smiley Frustrated

Re: New - NetGear Orbi RBR50 / RBS50 Firmware Version 2.3.0.32 now available...

Yup, I have the same. Manual update -> sattelite updated from 2.2.1.210 to 2.3.0.32 without problems. Router won't update. "This firmware file is incorrect".

Tried cleaning cache, tried different browsers, rebooted router, and my Orbi is not ISP branded.

 

I have a feeling issue is on NG side.

Firmware is available on Netgear website specifically for manual update.

My 2 sattelites update fine, router reports Firmware file is incorrect! Please get the firmware file again and make sure it is the correct firmware for this product, so it will NOT update. Obviously the file is bad.

I tried various browsers and also before and after restarting the system.

Hi All, 

 

There is an intermediate firmware that need to be loaded first to manually update the firmware 2.3.0.32. The said firmware should be available too in our support site. However, upon checking, it is not yet posted. 

 

Let me check this with the team and will get back for more information. 

 

Thank you!

Ok, good there is some clarity. Interesting though - firmware worked for satellite, but not router.

Try the intermediate v212 file before applying the .v32 file when v212 becomes available.
