Re: Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.60

Should be good to update to v60. Unless there is a NG service issue. 

Did you update to v48 using same process before? 

 

What is the Mfr and model# of the ISP modem the NG router is connected too?

Can you select the RBS first to update? 

 

What browser are you using?

Re: Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.60

Your ISP modem has built in router and wifi already:

http://www.billion.uk.com/product/vdsl/8800NL.htm

 

This would be a double NAT condition which isn't recommended. https://kb.netgear.com/30186/What-is-Double-NAT
Couple of options,
1. Configure the modem for transparent bridge mode. Then use the Orbi router in router mode. You'll need to contact the ISP for help and information in regards to the modem being bridged correctly. If a upstream router is between the modem and Orbi, then try removing the middle router and connect the Orbi directly to the ISP Modem.
2. If you can't bridge the modem, disable ALL wifi radios on the modem, configure the modem or up stream routers DMZ or IP Pass-Through for the IP address the Orbi router gets from the modem. Then you can use the Orbi router in Router mode.
3. Or disable all wifi radios on the modem or up stream router and connect the Orbi router to the modem or router, configure AP mode on the Orbi router. https://kb.netgear.com/31218/How-do-I-configure-my-Orbi-router-to-act-as-an-access-point and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7LOcJ8GdDo&app=desktop

 

Has a factory reset been performed then setup from scratch and while walking thru the setup wizard, let the system check for a FW update and apply it there?

Re: Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.60

Thanks for your reply, the modem is a ZTE H369A, did reset the modem after doing the factory reset of the Orbi...

The Orbi is already 2 years in our home and never experienced problems, also the locations did not change...

I have now downgraded the firmware to V2.2.1.212 hoping that version is working stable.... Are there any big changes in the newer firmwares that I need to have?

Did you upgrade to v60 and continue to use the system or was a factory reset performed and setup from scratch after v60 was applied?

I did a factory reset twice after updating to V60 because internet was not working

Read the ZTE cannot be set to bridge mode. Have the NG Orbi always in AP mode. Should work isn't it?

Re: Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.60

Do you have the wireless disabled on the ZTE? 

 

After updating the Orbi to v60, should work well. Others have had good success with v60. Possible some tweeking maybe needed. When you reset did you setup from scratch or load a saved config from file from prior FW version save? 

 

What is the size of your home? Sq Ft?
What is the distance between the router and satellite(s)? 30 feet is recommended in between them to begin with depending upon building materials when wirelessly connected.

 

What channels are you using? Auto? Try setting manual channel 1, 6 or 11 on 2.4Ghz and any unused channel on 5Ghz.
Any Wifi Neighbors near by? If so, how many?

 

Try enabling Beamforming and MIMO(MIMO may or maynot be needed) and WMM. Under Advanced Tab/Advanced Settings/Wireless Settings

Try disabling the following and see:
Daisy Chain, Fast Roaming, IPv6 and Set 20/40Mhz Coexistence to 40Mhz only. Save settings and reboot the router and satellite(s).

Re: Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.60

It should, yes. The recommendation above your last post suggested disabling wifi on the host router. The host router would still have its DHCP server running to handle address assignments to your devices connected to the Orbi.
Also worth noting that in some Fiber installations, ISP routers can be bypassed and have the Orbi connected directly to the ONT. This would allow the Orbi to run in its native router mode.

We believe NG disabled AutoUpdate at v32/v44 and beyond. However the system still queries NG update servers and lets users know if there is a FW update available. So from now on, users can pick if and when they want to update Orbi FW thru the FW update feature on the RBR. 


Yes...........much, much better. I noted that 2.3.1.60 just sat there doing nothing every time I checked. I had to click Update All before the new version was applied which is absolutely ideal - finally!

That's good if it works and the RBK50 doesn't autoupdate itself.  Did you use the manual method of disabling auto update?

Re: Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.60

After updating to. 60 now my sattalite shows up as connected as a 5g eventhough it has an Ethernet cable plugged in connected to my network.  Did factory reset on both sattalite and main unit running in AP mode.  Anyone else seeing the sattalite showing as 5g instead of wired for those using wired backhaul and did latest update?

Re: Orbi Firmware 2.3.1.60

Did you first add the RBS to the RBR via wiress first, then connect the RBS via LAN cable to the RBR? Need to wait about 5 minutes before the BLUE led comes up. Be sure Daisy Chain is disabled before starting the setup process. 

 

What is the Mfr and model# of the ethernet switch if one is in the configuration.

Are you able to control channels to avoid overlap/conflict?  Most would not know how to do this and if they left all the radios active and things were acting strangely, would make troubleshooting more complex.

 

I do enjoy the benefits of single wireless network and assumed most owners would use the Orbi to be their sole wireless system.
