    Show list of connected devices via command line (Orbi)

    Thanks mith_y2k. I looked through all 142 posts on that thread but didn't find quite what I was looking for. Plenty of other useful info though! :)

    Show list of connected devices via command line (Orbi)

    Is there a way to show the list of connected devices from the command line on the Orbi running Voxel firmware? While the device list is available on the GUI, I'm trying to find a way to produce a similar list from the shell. Thanks.

    Login failures - ssh to Orbi

    Thanks for the confirmation Keridil. Glad to hear I’m not the only one :) Easy fix...yes, but just annoying why it happens. I wasn’t sure if my attempting to login from a new ssh client triggered the problem but it seems to be working fine for now.

    Thanks for the insight @Voxel . Is there a way I can force a restart of the underlying services/processes that are responsible for handling this to try and correct the problem via ssh into the router? Could you comment on which service/process manage this? I'm waiting for problem recurrence...

    Login failures - ssh to Orbi

    What would cause the Orbi (RBR50) to reject logins via ssh? While I've had no issues accessing it via ssh before, suddenly as of this morning trying to login using the same credentials kept causing an "Access denied" error. I know it wasn't a password issue because the password worked fine via...

    Hi Skippy Bosco, Thanks for your feedback! Practically speaking, if wired connections to the RBR50 as well as all connections to the Sat-1 & Sat-2 are easily able to hit the 400+ MBps speeds, and it's only the wireless connections to the RBR50 that are experiencing problems, then it would...

    In my case, when the problem starts to occur -- both wired and wireless connections to the satellites works perfectly, as does a wired connection to the main router. Wireless performance on the main router (once the router starts to perform badly) is bad regardless of 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz. With your...

    What's the bandwidth from your service provider? If it's 50Mbps or less, then I doubt you'll ever see any difference or issues before or after the reboot. In my case, I didn't notice the issue either until I moved to a carrier that offers > 50Mbps (my current expected bandwidth from the carrier...

    On the 'attached devices' page in the web GUI, it still showed each of the devices that I was testing from to be connected to the 5Ghz band. Assuming this is correctly reflecting the reality, it doesn't appear that they are falling back to 2.4 Ghz. However, I will check again from the laptop...

    Hi digital10, I've already established that the problem lies with the Orbi. I'm aware that rebooting it will correct the problem. I was trying to find a surgical approach to resolving the problem (i.e. perhaps restarting some process or service instead of a full reboot). Also, trying to get...

    Thanks for offering to help mith_y2k. Wrt the questions you asked, here's the info I have: Orbi Version: I checked on the label under the RBR50 and there's nothing that reads V2, so I'm assuming mine's the V1. Backhaul: Wireless Speed test method: Using Speedtest app (tested on native app on...

    I'm currently still running the V9.2.5.1.17 firmware but am seeing an issue where my download speeds on all wireless devices drops to around 45 mbps max regardless of device. Previously it happened after about 20 days of uptime. This time, it happened with just about 6 days of uptime. Rebooting...

    I see two ‘circled’ processes running. Don’t know name of daemon associated with Armor so can’t say much about that one. Most likely, neither daemon is disabled by default. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks for the quick reply theoak! My apologies... I should've looked there first!! Noted now for future reference.

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

    The readme file for version v9-2-5-1-9 mentions the following: 5. Options in nvram to disable Armor (BitDefender) and Circle update daemons are added. Are the update daemons disabled by default? If not, then what's the proper way to do this? I checked what nvram output showed occurrence of...
