About 2200.

 

One satellite.

 

Setup / position / house similar to the mid-sized multifloor house.

Re: New firmware so much better (1.4.0.34)

hi guys

 

just got home from holidays and installed .34 , was a little problematic in not reconnecting to the internet after the install but a full reboot of everything fixed that

 

there isnt really a lot done with regards to this release as the release notes state

 

New Features and Enhancements:

  • Support for Genie remote.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed some minor bugs.

so there shouldnt be any amazing improvements and or sudden dramatic changes to how the orbi works , just looks like the dev team just wanted to keep them selves busy over the holiday period and polish up a few minor blemishes

 

so all working fine here after update

 

regards

 

pete

You do not have to update sequentially.   You can skip any intermediate ones and go to the latest.

 

Please remember to update your satellite(s) first, then your router.   And do not try and do them at the same exact time.   

 


[emphasis added]

 

That part is very important.  It would also be a lot easier if Netgear replaced the single "Update All" button with individual Update buttons next to each unit in the network.  Most users are just going to click the Update All shotgun button.

Hi,

 

just recognized that the procedure you described is mentioned by Netgear as well. Why they incorporated an update all button

is then a secret which only Netgear knows...*facepalm*

I updated till 0.34 always both at the same time since I was not aware of another

recommendation.

 

What if users HAVE updated both at the same time?

Do we need to reset the system or anything else to do?

 

An answer from Netgear support / mods would be very helpful.

I expect the recommendation for one-at-a-time is so that if something goes wrong with a satellite, your primary router is still working and you can debug a single problem at a time.
