Is there a Beta Tester Community for AX-6000?

Is there a beta tester community for the AX-6000 like there was for the RBK-53?  If so, can I get info on how to apply?

 

Thanks

Re: Is there a Beta Tester Community for AX-6000?

Just found the beta forum it's under the 

  • Connected Home Products - Beta Firmware section. In same section with the Orbi AC.
  • Christian just posted there 2 days ago. 

For users interested in beta FW for the Orbi AX, contact @Christian_R for application requests.

Thanks for this.... It appears that if you are a Beta Tester for one model, you are a beta tester for all.


Great stuff!

There are a number of big features that are still to be implemented in Orbi AX which I think that Netgear will want to beta test before release.

Features like Circle and Bitdefender are nice widely used features in Orbi Gen 1 and I'm sure will soon be added to Orbi AX.

i'd imagine that beta forum is only visible to beta testers.  I messaged to begin the process but i'd imagine slow response with the holiday weekend, understandably so.  Do hope i can check out the last beta soon though, getting quite fedup with the broken streaming bugs i'm having.
