What does "latching to tcp sessions" mean? I want this stability.

Re: New Orbi Beta Software for RBK50 is coming soon

it is a setting on the isp provided device/modem/gateway. pace (now arris) called it tcp session time out in the advanced firewall settings.

 

after some testing, having at least 5Mbps upload speed makes a difference.  with the mid-2017 firmware, it worked when i had 1.5Mbps upload.  then there is the underlying OS the orbi runs.....not so much the OS itself but the version.
