Orbi RBK50 firmware update not recognized


Orbi RBK50 firmware update not recognized

I just set up my new Orbi RBK53. When it checks for a firmware update it says "no new firmware version available". It is running When checking Netgear's site it says they are up to It looks like that is the latest and greatest. What is the latest stable version? I don't really want to upgrade to the latest release, if it is going to be buggy.

You need to download an intermediate version v2.0.0.74 too the satellites first, then the RBR. Once at this version,

Then download v212 and v32.

Directly upgrade v32 to the satellites.

Then you have to send the v212 to the RBR first before you can send the v32.
