Re: New Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.48

My two sbs50 are still dropping the connection with.48 and separate ssid’s

How do I undue the separation and get my satellites working again? And once that is done how can you turn off 5.4ghz when adding difficult devices?

Re: New Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.48

Every time that I either reboot my Orbi or update the firmware I lose wifi calling on my iPhone and either I have to turn off my broadband supplier modem and turn it back on and/or ring my mobile phone provider and get them to reset my profile on my iPhone 😡

Never mind.  It was an automatic update from Netgear.  Should have checked first.  "My Bad"

I love my Orbi.

Re: New Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.48

If having the wireless carrier reset something in their backend systems works, great, but if WiFi calling was working before a firmware update, my money is on the router being at fault and is in need of a reset.

Yeah, it’s a strange one as I’ve rebooted the Orbi and my suppliers router and no joy.

Can't cuz there aint' one.  Searched the entire Internet, no release notes.  Just go ahead and step on that land mine, no problem.   

 

I know I'm old-fashioned but none of their **bleep** ever has date stamps either.

 

What a ridiciulous outfit.

Re: New Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.48

Beware, this is buggy release. I cannot ping the satellite, and i'm unable to ping any devices directly connected to the satellite. Rolling back.

Re: New Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.48

I have fixed the connectivity issue by completing factory reset on the satellite. Issue has been resolved.

Re: New Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.48

I shouldn’t have to do a factory reset every time I need to reboot my router or there is a firmware update in order to get wifi calling working again. I’m in a different part of the country using a different wifi network and wifi calling is working fine so it is the bloody router at home 😡😡😡😡

Re: New Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.48

I wouldn't if everything is working correctly and you are seeing your normal speeds and stability after the upgrade (not only for this firmware upgrade but in general I would never do it when going between minor releases which the release number indicates this one is).

New Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.48

RBK53 decided to do the automated update via the orbinet web status page instead of waiting for it to happen on its own. Happened in under 10 minutes across rbr50 and two rbs50. Only hiccup was needing to reboot rbr50 shortly after update. Other then that running like a top so far.

Re: New Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.48

When on the Firmware Update page, you should click on the link it provides under Status first, before blindly clicking "update" or "update all" under Online Update. Then you would have seen this:


Current Version: V2.3.1.44
New Version: V2.3.1.48
Release Notes:
[Bug Fix] Fixes the GUI display issue when the language is set to Japanese.

 

Also, when doing Firmware Updates its best to do it manually, not online, and always do the satelite unit first.

So if you go to Netgear and dont see a version higher than yours available for download, dont update.

Re: New Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.48

That's all well and good if the Orbi doesn't automatically attempt to update itself which is the default behavior of the product.

I still don't understand how sw_ was able to get a switch on firmware update screen.
