Orbi RBK30 dropping internet connection daily

Orbi drops internet connection daily. Need help fixing this issue. For the first few months of ownership it only happened a few times but we should’ve heeded the warning because it now drops the internet connection daily and has to be reset manually for the connection to start again. Please let me know if any fixes exist. Feel like we made a big mistake on this purchase. Need help please.

Re: Orbi RBK30 dropping internet connection daily

Whats the Mfr and model # of the ISP modem the RBK is connected too? Any built in router here by chance?

Do you still have access to the routers web page when this happens?

Both wired and wireless?

Any wifi neighbors near by? If so, how many?

 

Try using manual channel 1, 6 or 11 on 2.4Ghz and any unused channel on 5Ghz.

Try disabling MIMO, Daisy Chain, Fast Roaming and IPv6.

Re: Orbi RBK30 dropping internet connection daily

Modem is a Motorola surfboard. Don’t know the model # but it does not have a built in router.
No access to the router’s webpage when this happens.
We haven’t tried wired but know it is all wireless.
We do have WiFi neighbors. 5 Networks show up in range of our house.
We will try your suggestions. Thank you!

It worked for a month. Then we had a power outage and we are back to losing the WiFi every few minutes. We went back and verified that we had adjusted all the settings as you had previously recommended but it still drops every few minutes. Please help. We feel like we wasted money on something that does not work.

No internet again. 10th time today that it has dropped. We can’t complete anything on the internet. How has Netgear not been sued yet?

Re: Orbi RBK30 dropping internet connection daily

May not be a NG problem until you find out whats really wrong and the real causes of your problems.

 

What channels are your neighbors using?

What channels are you now using on your router?

How big is your home? SqFt?

Distances between Orbi and satellite?

Re: Orbi RBK30 dropping internet connection daily

My neighbors are using 2, 4 and 11.

We are on channel 6.

1500SF home.

40’ between Orbi and Satellite.

I had to reset 7 times yesterday and 6 so far today. So frustrating.

Re: Orbi RBK30 dropping internet connection daily

Having the same problem. Speeds are great for about a day and then it goes down. Can't access the web portal or find the router using the app and have to restart the router manually.

 

not a channel issue, no conflicting networks, modem has a gateway but is in bridge mode, latest firmware installed but was having the same issue with the previous firmware. This is incredibly frustrating, we purchased the Orbi to get better coverage throughout the house and it's great when it's working, but these daily disconnects completely override any benefits it had
