Request for ORBI firmware management team RBK50

Hi Orbi team,

please use standard openwrt firmware.

Is stable and can be customized.

Or if you cannot use other sdk please test firmware before get to the users.

Or put separate section with beta firmware and issues.

You speak the truth! If Netgear testing included a series of multi-hour real-world load scenarios and required those tests to pass before releasing their firmware, the forums would be a much happier place.

How do you know they aren't doing that already? NG does have a beta program. 

 

Overall development and testing takes time. Cycles and new stuff being developed and tested. Many various environments and standards to uphold, develop and test against. 

 

Unfortunately were to perfect so we have imperfect stuff. Were all beta testers. Been like this for a long time now.
