Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.60

Welp, anyone have any notes on this thing?  It's already downloaded to my router and satellite waiting for me to pull the pin.

Re: Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.60

Hi,

 

Just for information, when you're in the Firmware Update page and it downloads new firmware to install, the version number next to both the router and the satellite is a clickable link.

 

If you click the link, it will show you the release notes of all changes between your currently installed firmware and the update.

 

Although, this "feature" is not hidden, it's not always obvious that it's there either.

Keep checking the download web site for posted release notes...if your system is running with out any problems, I'd hold off for now.

Where do you get this firmware? The downloads page seems to show only version 2.3.1.48.

Re: Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.60

I presume this version maybe for only the 50 series Orbi. 40, 30 and 20 series may not be available as of yet on there web page. 

 

It's not available for download on NGs download web site pages currently. I presume NG will be making the files available soon.

Also about 30 minute in after upgrade by clicking "upgrade all". Smooth. Now we wait for family bitching :-)

Re: Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.60

To whom it may concern:

 

I am an hour into hitting "Update All".  Both still say "Updating".  I really wish Netgear had released this update for manual processing.  I'd feel a whole lot better about it.

Re: Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.60

To whom it may concern:

 

It finally finished.  Of course, I had to logout of the "Updating" session to see it.  You'd think Netgear would show that the Router and Satellite actually finished updating rather than just saying it was.

After hitting the "Update All" button, everything came back online in ~10mins.

 

Orbi/Satellites Backhaul Status looks good:

root@RBR50:/# wlanconfig ath2 list

  • ADDR               AID CHAN TXRATE RXRATE RSSI ...
  • 14:59:c0:3b:e7:xx    1  157 1170M   1170M   35 ...

root@RBR50:/# cat /tmp/satellite_device_info

...

                "signal strength":      "-55",

                "current version":      "V2.3.1.60",

                "backhaul status":      "2",

                "device name":  "Orbi Satellite-1"

...

                "signal strength":      "-60",

                "backhaul status":      "2",

                "device name":  "Orbi Satellite-2"

 

Backhaul Signal Strength between ORBI and its 2 Satellites:

  • 40 - 95 = -55 dBm, Backhaul Link Speed 1300M
  • 35 - 95 = -60 dBm, Backhaul Link Speed 1170M

Re: Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.60

Even with telnet enabled, I'm now unable to telnet in when I could before. Clearly nothing changed for you! Strange... I simply get an error  

 

[Could not create a new process and open a pseudo-tty.]

 

I'm on Apple Macos 10.14.4 - perhaps apple has made it impossible in its updating. Anyone have success with an apple?
