Re: New RBK50/53 Series Firmware Version 2.7.3.22

Dropouts continued so I've reverteted to 2.7.2.104. Then had one more drop out after that. If it happens again I suppose I'll need to try a factory reset as reverting is not a normal thing and may need that to fully drop back.  About to pull the trigger on a WiFi 6e mesh system so won;t have to mess with this for much longer.

Did you factory reset and setup from scratch been performed after the FW update?

Re: New RBK50/53 Series Firmware Version 2.7.3.22

I don't know why but my Orbi auto updated to 2.7.3.22 overnight.  I didn't see it until I was troubleshooting a problem with my Synology NAS and the UPS connection and saw that the Orbi restarted about 3:45 this morning (about 10 hours ago).   I can't find a setting to disable the auto update feature but I thought I had it disabled previously.  It seems okay right now so I'll leave it until I see a problem and then reevaluate.   We will see what happens!

Re: New RBK50/53 Series Firmware Version 2.7.3.22

Ok. Seems that NG is starting to auto push FW since this first appeared. 

 

Id do a backup configuration to file for safe keeping. Saves time if a reset is needed. 

If you run into anything you can do a reset and reload. 

 

I would power OFF the ISP modem, RBR and RBS for 1 minute then back ON with the modem, then RBR then RBS in mean time. 

 

Orbi doesn't offer options to disable auto updates.

Re: New RBK50/53 Series Firmware Version 2.7.3.22

Well I pulled the trigger and ordered a WiFi 6e mesh from another company. The Orbi is still doing drop outs and I'll probably just put up with it until the new system arrives rather than go through the work of factory reseting and configuring from scratch. 

 

I'm probably just buying into a new set of issues as a newly released router tends to have some bugs.

Re: New RBK50/53 Series Firmware Version 2.7.3.22

A reset should be performed, at least while you wait on the new system. 

 

I've not seen issues with v22 loaded on my RBK50 system. Though my one RBS50 is ethernet connected. 


Good Luck.

I too am going to (once again) voice my displeasure with this practice of auto updating the firmware.  It's a feeling of being ambushed as I'm now forced to take action to recover my home network.  Netgear is prioritizing its own selfish needs over that of its customers.

New system arrived early. Boy is it noticably faster. I can only conclude something in the Orbi was causing a slowdown as my internet speeds are 400/20 which should have been well with in the Orbi capability.  I noticed the speed checks on the Orbi were a bit slow and I had done a full reset and configure by hand back when 104 came out with no change.

All of my phone apps seem to be struggling to load and my tv has similar issues with the youtube app. I'll give it one more day and then I'm rolling it back to the older firmware I've been using if it keeps up.

Re: New RBK50/53 Series Firmware Version 2.7.3.22

Much better speed than I was able to get. For over a year I had not been able to get over 200 down wireless on a 400 service. Wired was fine from the router and got near 400. It did not matter if I was connected to the router or satellite. I even did the full factory reset and manual setup a few months ago to see if that would help.

Re: New RBK50/53 Series Firmware Version 2.7.3.22

WIred should see near 400Mpbs if thats what you get from the ISP. Wireless kind of depends on device and there max supported speeds and mimo antenna support. 2x2 are usually limited to 300-500 range. 4x4 antenna supports much higher speeds.

This firmware bricked my rbr40 router.
I think the satellites are ok but I can get the main router to respond. Holding the reset button for any combination of time lengths doesn't help and neither does tftp options. Left for vacation and came back to no internet and an expensive paperweight.

Re: New RBK50/53 Series Firmware Version 2.7.3.22

Hi,

I've tried twice to update my RBR50 using this latest firmware 2.7.3.22 two days ago. I got no problem on the updating process. But i got serius problem after the update process is done. Suddently the WAN port is not working... or being disable... i don't know why. Even after i reboot the router a few time, the result is still the same. I've try using the automatic update and manual update. Both way give me the same result. So i revert back to firmware 2.7.2.104 .... everything is back to normal.

Connection:
ISP -> Manage Switch -> Orbi RBR 50 -> Orbi RBS 50

- Orbi Router only do PPPoE and PPPoE IPv6. 
- No Vlan setting enable on my Orbi 50 as the manage switch already done the job.
