Orbi rbr20 : Firmware Check Error and router blocking our info to the router.

We cannot use our Orbi RBR 20 on our wired computer. The WiFi is working and we have a strong signal From our internet provider.
We are getting error messages
-that our calendar is connecting to a server that is pretending to be our calendar which could put our confidential info at risk.
- Safari cannot establish a secure connection
-NetGear is blocking our info in the router.
Our iPhones, IPads, etc are working. Hulu/Netflix in tv’s are not. iMac is having most issue with these error messages.
I tried to check if the Orbi had a firmware update and I received an error message that there was a “firmware check error”.

We are outside the support window on our product so Netgear cannot help.

Any advice? Thank you!

What firmware are you on with the orbi? And the satellites? 

What modem/gateway are you connecting to? 

Did this issue just occur or has this been going on since you set it up? 

Current Setup: CM2000-> RBK750-> GS716v2-> RAXE500-> Pi-hole->

I doubt this has anything to do with the Orbi, unless you configured security.

What version of Safari are you using. It appears IOS13 has issues with Safari not establishing a secure connection on IOS13.
