    Voxel Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.2.9SF-HW

    Okay ... it wasn't just me. The other morning I was fighting disconnections all morning. Likewise, when it was connected, painfully slow. Restarted ISP modem and UTM ... still no joy. I was debating on going back to .8 but I finally broke down and installed Netgear 2.7.2.104 ... stable and...

    RBR50+Voxel WAN connection capped at 100mbs

    Latest Voxel is based off of the NETGEAR 2.5.x code set; hence, do NOT flash Voxel if anything higher is installed. You mentioned you have 2.7.x NETGEAR installed. DO NOT install Voxel 9.2.5.x! You will need to downgrade to stock NETGEAR 2.5.2.4 first.

    Issue with Orbi RBK50 in AP Mode using Wired Backhaul Connected to XB7 in Router Mode

    You figured it out. For wired from router to satellite it is port sensitive on the router and satellite. https://kb.netgear.com/000051205/What-is-Ethernet-backhaul-and-how-do-I-set-it-up-on-my-Orbi-WiFi-System Folks do claim advantages with Voxel. The catch here is each home is so different...

    The Satellite needs to be in the left most port, excluding the internet port.

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

    2.5.2.4 and 2.7.0.70 do not have release notes that I have seen. Netgear claims they don't know about them; however, folks are getting them pushed to them and/or showing up as upgrade options via the iOS app. 2.7.0.70 appears to release new parental controls; hence why there are so many changes.

    Okay, I have always been a sucker for punishment. I will download and install today. Wish me luck ;) Edit: Give me a day or two. I really noticed it when streaming. Buffering was crazy bad with .33. I rolled back to .19 and buffering was gone. We'll see how .34 does ...

    Custom firmware build for Orbi RBK50/RBK53 (RBR50, RBS50) v. 9.2.5.1.19SF-HW

    I am not convinced that AX is fully baked yet. Personally, I just got the Orbi AC3000 for that reason and combined with the fact that with all the wifi I have in my home, I have 1 (uno, un, um, unus, odin, moja ... one) single AX device. It was hard to justify an expensive AX system for one...

    @Vips: Are you losing your 5Ghz band with everything moving to your 2.5Ghz band? If you experience the drop on all wireless clients, using a laptop (Windows based at least), you should be able to check what band it is connected to.
