We retested NETGEAR's Orbi and Linksys' Velop and were pleasantly surprised by one of them.

Did you do testing with the latest Velop firmware version 1.1.2.183316?

1.1.2.181801 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 1.1.2.181801 was a failure but firmware version 1.1.2.183316 is a success.

Sorry I don't have the answer to that.

I provided downgrade instructions and a firmware download link to firmware 1.1.1.180735 to many Linksys forum users during that period. Firmware 1.1.1.180735 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.
