    Voxel Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.2.15SF-HW

    Installed without issue. Fast as always. Thank You for your continued support. The last release included QCA drivers/firmware from V2.7.3.22 stock. Should we expect to see any additional integration from that GPL release or is it not worth the effort?

    Voxel Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.2.14SF-HW

    1) When you moved to Voxel did you start fresh or did you import your prior config backup? 2) Can you describe your network configuration? How are your satellites attached to the Orbi router. Are they wired directly to the Lan port? (ie. Orbi Router -> Lan Port -> Orbi Sattelite) or how exactly...

    Yes, absolutely. It will still be more secure and run better optimized.

    1. No. If you are already running stock 2.7+, you need to revert to stock 2.5 before flashing Voxel or you will soft brick your router and satellite which will need to be TFTP to recover. You can download 2.5 here: Router: https://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/GDC/RBK50/RBR50-V2.5.2.4.zip...

    That's because you went from the snapshot to the release. From .13 I didn't receive that message. The version check in Netgear's binaries doesn't handle that last decimal point very well in terms of comparison.

    Install seemed faster than before, and I may be mistaken but is that a new "Voxel Firmware" logo?

    Voxel Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.2.13SF-HW

    Hi Voxel. I noticed two new folders in the repository. The LBR20, which from the readme appears to be aligning RBR50 firmware to work for LBR20? A "snapshot" folder, which from the readme appears to be a "beta" folder of ongoing development before it it becomes stable and posted in the forum...

    Not at all. Thank you for what you do. Stay healthy. Stay safe.

    Were you able to tell if that new GPL release will be useful for a future Voxel release?

    If this is true, that will be huge. Terrible for Voxel's family as they won't see him for awhile, but great for us.

    The intent would be either an addition to the quickstart or a delta that allows for both. The standard that exists today, and an offering for those that have simple needs and want to maximize performance and stability over functionality. The recent issues with Traffic Meter is a great example...

    Voxel Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.2.13SF-HW

    I was thinking more along the lines of the active processes that are not needed as part of core function but still run today. For example: button detect, circled, upagent, bonjour, print, etc. Even with Circle disabled, the process is active and killing it spawns a new pid. as well as...

    Voxel Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.2.13SF-HW

    A couple of suggestions to consider for enhancements to the firmware while we're waiting for the newer updates to be released by Netgear to the open source. 1) A thin version of the firmware that has any non critical resources disabled and/or removed. Essentially just the core services for...

    Unlikely a hardware issue based on what you describe. More likely 1) your internet modem 2) bad network cable 3) device on your network causing havoc 4) a configuration issue. #2 is easy to address, replace the cable between your internet modem and Orbi with a known good cat 5+ cable. #4 is...
