    Voxel Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.2.12SF-HW

    Its no use, its doing the disconnections again. I think my Orbi has a hardware flaw. Its been only about a year. This is the most expensive and shortest lived router I have ever bought. I guess I will have to buy the ZenMesh.

    Voxel Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.2.12SF-HW

    Guys do you know if it has any negative affect to choose which region you are in the admin page? Or does it just opens and bans certain channels in the router? Also I am having wierd disconnection issues, I noticed that in the time settings I have daylight savings auto-adjust is on and I am in...

    Voxel Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.2.12SF-HW

    Hello Voxel and community, I have previously reported disconnections and Orbi frustrating dead signal. Maybe it had nothing to do with Voxel or Orbi Firmware issues. I have previously blocked netgear.com because it was sending information back to Netgear, which I do not know what exactly. I...

    Voxel Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.2.11SF-HW

    After days of testing , exchanging my previous ethernet cable with the cable that came with the Orbi, I can say Voxel firmware is extremely solid and stable. Not 1 disconnection. The only issue i faced was the speed throughput was halved which an Orbi restart fixed. I don't think this has to do...

    Orbi Satellite losing speed

    So ISP speed measured from my Orbi is 500Mbps(Ethernet-to-ISP Router) , when I check speed via Wifi connected to the Satellite I get 150-200Mbps. I am losing about 300 Mbps. This is frustrating me because I am paying for that speed. There is only 1 brick wall between router and satellite, then...

    Voxel Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.2.11SF-HW

    @Voxel I have reported disconnects before. I since have changed the ethernet cable with the one that originally came with Orbi. Its goes from ISP router into WAN port of Orbi. I have it up few days now I see more solid performance. I dont know why this makes me lose Wifi signal though, even if...

    Voxel Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.2.11SF-HW

    I had password issues because I restored from backup I think. I am sorry to tell you that to fix it I had to downgrade to official stock firmware v2.5.2.4 , reset, upgrade to Voxel and set as new without restoring. this fixed my issue

    Voxel Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.2.11SF-HW

    Reporting to Voxel, Everything seems solid and steady with .11 . The only issue I faced was my iphone for some reason disconnected for 10 seconds to LTE then back to Wifi. I am going to guess this is an iOS issue. Not Voxel problem, but I did some testing and I think I know why Netgear...

    How Much Total Throughput Can Your Wi-Fi Router Really Provide?

    Not looking good for Netgear, I bet Asus would love to use the above graphs for marketing material.

    Voxel Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.2.10SF-HW

    I updated to .11 . So far so good. If I find an instabilities I will go back to .7 and report back just out if interest of Voxel, maybe he would like to know for some reason. I am really having ideas that this instability is due to the dumb DHCP of netgear. Things seems more stable since I...

    Voxel To unregistered readers of SNB forums

    you are correct, but people online actually do think this is just a coffee machine and real world etiquette does not apply. I myself have been downloading free software off the net and using websites without double thinking about where it comes from. Just like the millions of people who use...

    Voxel Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.2.10SF-HW

    I will give it a shot, I am on 9.2.5.2.7 everything stable and working amazing no issues. I can not explain the different behaviors I am experiencing. Do you know if flashing different firmwares causes issues , or residue files, because I really would hate to downgrade to official...

    Voxel Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.2.11SF-HW

    I already moved DHCP to pihole. Parental controls are disabled by default. ARMOUR and Disney I disabled via SSH. I have already done this processes then upgrade to Voxel 9.2.5.2.7. Now things seem great. If we have to disable all the features and not change a thing for this to work correctly...
