Orbi RBR/RBS50 Firmware Updates

I was looking at the firmware updates for the Orbi RBR50 based systems. My system currently has firmware 2.1.2.18   BUT  the website shows the CURRENT firmware as 2.0.1.4. 

 

So what is the latest version ?  Normally, the higher the number the new the firmware.

 

Also, the firmware Release Notes do not show release dates..

 

Comments ?

 

TIA

But keep in mind that 2.1.2.18 was recalled, and 2.0.1.4 is the latest recommended firmware.

Yes you have the most current up to date FW. 

2.1.2.18 is of course the higher value number.

Well if you have v.18 installed and it's working for you, then I would leave it. If your experiencing problems, then you can downgrade.

Thank you for the link. I wish they had posted this on the main Firmware Downloads page. 

 

Since mine appears to be working well, I won't downgrade the firmware.
