Wanted to give this firmware a try but having problems downloading the files (very slow, and eventually timeout). Is there something wrong with the hosting site?

Issue was addressed - Had something to do with my location. Tried from another ISP and it worked fine.

Having a similar issue, but at a different location or mobile data it works fine. Not sure why my ISP is being weird.

Hello All,
My first post here.
Upgraded rbr50 and rbs50 to Voxel firmware.
Have 1x rbs50 and 2x rbs10 connected to Rbr50.
After upgrading I am unable to log in to orbi app. The credentials do not work.
I am guessing once voxel is installed, orbi app won’t connect to view orbi routers and satellite?
And also how do I erase everything and start the set up again on voxel?
Tried going on backup setting and erase everything but do not see the option to erase.
Also, noticed wifi kee dropping. Using it as router.
Thanks in advance

First of all, I'm not a vixel, I'm a Voxel. Not very considerate and respectful of you.

Secondly, the Orbi app is a pretty cranky app. It tells me that my RBR50 is offline. Meanwhile, my RBR50 is definitely online. Also, the same Orbi app works perfectly when connected to an Orbi LBR20. Screenshot:

I am not responsible for NETGEAR's smartphone apps. Sorry. And don't like them...

Voxel.
 
Don't worry, no hard feelings. It's all good. Glad you are using my firmware.

P.S.

You have a slightly different problem that Orbi app authorization is not working. But this app is really quite crooked. Unfortunately.

Voxel.
 
when i was able to connect orbi app finally. i have set up the router as AP now. orbi app does not show me any satelite being connected so i logged in thru orbi web interface and this is what i see. does this mean all my satelites are connected?

i do have that enabled as well.
Try to logout and to login (WebGUI). WebGUI sometimes slows down and does not show the current state.

P.S.
I apologize, I'm already shutting down my computer. It's midnight in my time zone.

No need to apologize. It’s all good.
I logged out and logged back in but no change.
Will wait few mins and try again And report back later on tonight.
 
So doesn’t matter what setting I change, Rbs10 do not connect.
In screen shot, the ones that are not connected are rbs10 the other that is connected rbs50. I am guessing because rbs10 has orbi fw and rbr50 and rbs50 has Voxel?
