RBS 40 Firmware update failure

Just purchased an orbi AC2200 RBS40, However I'm unable to update to the most current firmware. I have tried all of the previous posted solutions with no success. Need help...any suggestions? Thanks

I had the same (or similar) problem.

 

Use the manual update option, and its two steps.

 

Step 1)

 

 Update to this firmware first.

RBR40 intermediate firmware rbr40 v2.0.0.56 (required to apply the previous update)

http://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/GDC/RBK40/RBR40-V2.0.0.56.zip

 

Step 2)

RBR40 latest firmware rBR40 V2.2.1.210

RBR40 + (2)RBS20 + RBS30W

Re: RBS 40 Firmware update failure

Just noticed you said RBS40 and not RBR40. The same process should (hopefully) apply, but you may need to search for the satellite versions of the firmware.

Re: RBS 40 Firmware update failure

If you updated the RBR before the RBS, you may need to downgrade the RBR long enough to upgrade the RBS, once thats is updated, then update the RBR back to latest. RBS needs to be updated before the RBR router.

This approach works for me. Thanks! After manual updating to v2.0.0.56 router found an automatic v2.2.1.210 update and flashed it online.
