Did you do testing with the latest Velop firmware version

Did you do testing with the latest Velop firmware version as stated in review.

I always update before testing. Looks like I just missed the release on 8/24. Testing was completed on 8/23

That's too bad because firmware was a failure but firmware version is a success.

Sorry I don't have the answer to that.

I provided downgrade instructions and a firmware download link to firmware to many Linksys forum users during that period. Firmware was reporting quite well but it did have a few issues with Bridge Mode.

The WAN throughput is odd. I thought pretty much the orbi line up had the same processor and chipset. So a little surprised their high end would show those results.
