Orbi New Firmware 1.8.06

I have been a Orbi user since the first firmware release. It has been challenging ride. The product once working correctly, is better than anything else out there (I have tried every mesh system).  I just updated to firmware 1.8.0.6. I am happy to report that of the 56 various wi-fi devices I have, nothing is disconnecting (24 hour run). I also noticed that web pages under this firmware are loading much much faster.  I am running the Orbi in AP mode with a Verizon Fios router and Wi-Fi turned off and MU-MIMO turned on. I hope this is going to remain the final fix!

Model: Orbi High-Performance AC3000 Tri-Band WiFi System (RBK50)

Interesting, especially since the Netgear guy here mentioned in another thread that they didn't address the disconnect issues with this firmware release.
