Orbi Firmware V2.3.0.32

Netgear site still shows that Orbi Firmware V2.3.0.32 is NOT to be installed in Australia (so I assume also NOT in New Zealand).

Is this still correct, or can NZ'ers and Aust'ers install this update on RBR50's and RBS50's?

Thank you.

Re: Orbi Firmware V2.3.0.32

Note:

If you’re manually updating the firmware using a browser, you cannot update the firmware directly to v2.3.0.32. You must first update the firmware to v2.2.1.212.  After updating the firmware v2.2.1.212, your Orbi router will reboot, and then you can update to v2.3.0.32. 

If you are located in the following regions Japan (JP), Australia (AU) and Canada (CA) please hold off updating to FW 2.3.0.32 

 

Though NZ is not mentioned. since your in the same region as AU, I presume this includes NZ.

Hi,

No have not updated as yet as the ‘hold off’ message is still showing on the Netgear website for AU area users.

Thanks.

Cheers.
