    Just wanted to post a PSA that the latest Netgear firmware for the Orbi mess wifi system has issues with some 2.4ghz HomeKit devices.

    Their forums are full of users having issues.

    I was having problems with a handful of devices and rolling back to the previous firmware resolved my issues.

    Do you know what firmware version? I updated maybe four or five months ago but not since then.

    Yep. Go to https://www.netgear.com/support/, enter your model number, go to downloads, then tap the “View Previous Versions” link toward the bottom. You’ll have to manually install it.
