Firmware version 2.3.1.44 landed on my Netgear Orbi here in the UK last night, bringing with it a decent number of bugfixes and new features, probably the most notable of which is the NETGEAR Armor security system – powered by Bitdefender – to make your home Internet and all devices connected to it much more secure.

  • Actually it breaks an otherwise good router. Google.com requires a logon, Amazon fire no longer connects, Alexa will not stay connected, Samsung and LG smart tvs operate like they are on dial up. Oh and there is an option to turn off Armor, but you cannot uninstall it. So read the posts on how many people are having issue with it… This upgrade should be backed out immediately, and re issued with the Option to NOT install Armor.
