    Orbi AC3000 - Worst router ever?

    First tried ethernet lan backhauled. That just doesn't seem to work, even worse, when I plug it in the router web interface is jammed, I need to disconnect it to make it work again. You have to wireless connect the RBS to the RBR first. Once this happens, then connect a good quality LAN...

    "Changes (vs 9.2.5.1.18SF-HW): 1. "Reset to factory settings" option is temporary disabled in WebGUI." As a suggestion, Voxel, you might include the following in this line of text. "If the system needs a factory reset, users will need to revert back to stock FW, then perform the factory reset...

    Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.1.18SF-HW & v. 9.2.5.1.18.1SF-HW

    OK, My windows 7 PC sent the file and the RBR50 is now recovered to Stock FW. Must be something on my Windows 10 PC not working for TFTP and Orbi for some reason. It had recovered a RAX80 a couple of weeks ago using Windows 10. Not sure why Windows 10 isn't working. Glad I have a old Windows 7...

    Ya I don't see any bytes sent results, just goes to a command prompt. Yes, it's enabled in windows. I checked to make sure TFTP was a valid executable in the command line before running the real put command. Command line run as Admin always. Firewall is always disabled on my PC. I'm going...

    Ok, Tried this, had two cmd line windows open, one running ping and the other set for the put command: tftp -i 192.168.1.1 put RBR50-V2.5.1.16.img Powered ON RBR while reset button was pressed, held for 30 seconds then released. (I noticed the ping started to respond at about 8-10 seconds after...

    Voxel, I'll try Windows TFTP. Just hoping that will work. Odd that the 3rd party client doesn't work. I guess some difference in programs. Is there something to wait for on the RBR after turning it ON, before I hit PUT? When I turn it ON I only see the back power LED turn on GREEN then the top...

    Bad news, I had stock FW v16 loaded on the RBR50. Loaded Voxels v18SF version on top of stock FW. Waited for the RBR to load and reboot. After the reboot the RBR came to ready. I was able to access the RBR50's web page and also had internet access here. I then used the ERASE button feature under...

    Ok, I'll be your guinea pig. o_O As long as TFTP is working I can recover to stock fw if it doesn't work. I'll let you know

    Just curious if the reset button/Erase function in this version of FW works like stock FW or do we still have to TFTP or revert back to stock FW to do a factory reset?

    Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.1.17SF-HW

    Voxels FW only supports the 50 series RBR and RBS. I presume v2 as well, however not sure. Always better to have more memory. One can install Entware and Netdata to have a nice look at the system operations: https://www.snbforums.com/threads/bandwidth-monitoring-on-orbi.63561/#post-586720
