Re: RBK 852 New Firmware Version: V3.2.16.6_1.4.4

FYI, I updated mine today. Did a dirty update instead of factory reset and setup from scratch. I just went online with it in router mode. RBR came up quickly and all my devices connected with out any problems thus far. RBS is wired and showing wired connection

 

I can confirm NAT Filter is fixed now for those gamers with two or more game consoles:

Speeds are good too:

I'll check for any DNS issues. DNS is automatic for me. 

 

Orbi app is connecting and working.

@FURRYe38  I think my setup is kinda close to yours. You mentioned in some other posts that your setup is relatively stable now on the older fw. What do u have for the usual settings?

 

-  Enable 20/40mhz coexistence

- Enable WMM for both 2.4/5G

- preamble 2.4/5G

- CTS/RTS 2.4/5G

-  Enable AX 2.4/5G

- DNS Auto/manual

 

Think I'll be fine if I mimic your settings lol

Quick question, have they made the older AC3000 routers compatible wirelessly yet? Or do they still have to be tethered with Ethernet?

Only ethernet. I saw a post in a different forum that one user contacted NG support and asked about this and NG said they hadn't planned on it. So take that with a grain of salt. Only the RBS50Y in extender mode seems compatible at this time.

I just confirmed that my two EX extenders connect to Orbi AX 8 series so these could be used in a pinch with Orbi AX systems.

Connected a ASUS AX router in wireless bridge mode to my Orbi AX 8 series. Speed test is with Windows 10 wired PC connected behind ASUS wireless bridge.

FURRYe38, you need to update your firmware on your ASUS GT-AX11000 to 9566. 🙂

According to the release notes for the GT-AX11000 9566 firmware version stability/security is improved but if all is well-you are right-why bother?
