    Voxel Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.1.33SF-HW & v. 9.2.5.1.34SF-HW

    Yes, you are incorrect. Every channel has the same bandwidth, with the possible exception of 48. I have read (somewhere) that setting Orbi to 36 means "only 36", whereas 48 means "all channels from 36 through 48", which makes an 80MHz bandwidth. Here is a picture of the 5G frequency band that...

    Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.1.12.1SF-HW

    I think Linux already provides a method to perform tasks on schedule. Google "crontab" for examples and information.

    Exactly. Yet another memory lapse on my part. THANK YOU.

    Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.1.12.1SF-HW

    Does anyone know a command to generate new certs for OpenVPN on the Orbi. (regular OpenVPN host, not client). I lost track of who has my OpenVPN configuration file (ca, key, ovpn, etc.) and want to ensure that the file no longer "works". Just disabling and reenabling VPN doesn't change the...

    Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.1.12.1SF-HW

    Over in the Netgear Orbi community forum, a member has figured out how to have Orbi's "Attached Devices" sort by IP address, rather than the apparently 'random' order they usually appear in. It's only 11 lines of code. (Although I confess to not having used "vi" for editing in 20 years and my...

    Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.1.12.1SF-HW

    It has been almost 30 years since I last used vi to edit files. Looking through the Release Notes, I do not see mention of an alternative command line text editor. Could you perhaps include a more "modern" text editor, such as nano in a future release? Or, provide instructions on how users...

    Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.1.12.1SF-HW

    Apologize in advance if this is off topic. It seems that almost every week someone poses a problem about Orbi behavior that cannot be researched because what little is written to the "Orbi Log" is erased when the system reboots and there is not much detail in that log about things like the WAN...

    Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.1.12SF-HW

    Well, that was three hours I wish I had back. Thought it would be almost trivial to save the config, load stock firmware to the RBR50, reboot, reload the config and be done. Almost wore out the paperclip and spent forever watching the white light fade in and out..... At long last, router and...

    Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.1.12SF-HW

    Well, I rebooted the router and the situation persists. Satellite identified every device as "Unknown". My next step, when I can get some "alone time" with the Orbi, will be to save the config, "Factory Refresh", reload the config, and try again. I would much prefer that every user reported...

    Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.1.12SF-HW

    It has been so long since I looked at the Connected Devices on the satellite that I honestly cannot remember. I will reboot the router. That's fast, simple, and doesn't require reentering device configurations! Thank you for confirming it is likely something I did (or failed to do).

    Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.1.12SF-HW

    Update to 9.2.5.1.12SF-HW went smoothly. I had left my satellite with stock firmware and decided "now's the time" to move it to Voxel as well. Although the satellite firmware update went smoothly, and the unit appears to work well, I am confused about one aspect: The satellite "Connected...

    Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50 v. 2.5.0.42SF-HW

    Installed fine for me. Also did manual firmware update on my RBS50, which I had left "stock" previously. I had recently attached my original RBR50 to the Voxel router as an Access Point running the stock 2.5.1.8 to check a report about AP and the Guest network not being separate from the...

    Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.1.11SF-HW

    Thank you for the explanation. Makes perfect sense. Having vpn devices appear in "Attached Devices" is not critical.

    Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.1.11SF-HW

    Another embarrassing revelation. Orbi LAN computers did not respond to ping because the Windows Firewall blocked ICMP from other subnets. Allowed that (in File and Printer Sharing - who would EVER think to look THERE?). Now, Linux over "tun" VPN pings devices just like Windows over "tap" VPN...
