Orbi RBR50 Setup Not Working on App [Fixed]
Although setting up the Orbi device is an easy job, users still get stuck by committing simple mistakes or ignoring some important factors. This post will walk you through all those important factors along with tips and tricks that will help you complete the Orbi setup without getting stuck.
Fix 1: Connect to Orbi’s Network
The phone on which you have installed the Orbi app must be connected to Orbi’s WiFi. If you are using some other WiFi or are connected to cellular data, then you should disconnect from it right away. Select Orbi’s SSID from the list and use its WiFi password to connect to it. Once you are connected, you should launch the Orbi app and carry out the setup process.
Fix 2: Ensure an Adequate Power Supply
If you execute the setup steps and in the end, you get an error message saying Something went wrong then there are chances that the Orbi device is not fully powered on. A fluctuating power supply can cause this. If the Orbi RBR50 is not completely booted up and is not receiving a consistent power supply, then the setup will get interrupted and halted in between.
We, thus, suggest you check the power supply by examining the power cable and the power socket. Mend anything that is damaged and fix loose connections and then try to set up Orbi.
Note: While you are checking Orbi’s power supply, do check the same with the modem. It should also be fully booted up and receiving consistent power.
Fix 3: Check the Connections
Another reason why the setup is getting interrupted is because of shaky connections. So, verify the same by thoroughly examining the connection between the Orbi router and modem. Ensure a firm connection and then proceed further.
Fix 4: Opt for a LAN Connection
If the Orbi router is connected to the modem in a wireless mode, then there are chances of signal disconnections. Wireless connections are not reliable. You should go for a wired connection. Use a CAT6 cable and connect the router to the modem using it.
Fix 5: Update the Orbi App
The Orbi app may be running on an older version and hence you are facing setup issues. Update the Orbi app to the most recent version and then try to set up the Netgear Orbi.
In case updating the app does not help, then delete the app and reinstall it. This should help.
Fix 6: Reboot Your Orbi
Reboot the Netgear Orbi RBR50 system once. You should power it off and power it on after a gap of 5 to 10 minutes. Rebooting is a simple process, but it can help fix the glitches.
Fix 7: Use Orbi Web Interface for Setup
If the Orbi app does not help you complete the setup of your Orbi, then you should go for an alternative way to carry out the setup. You can use the web interface on a browser on your computer to get the job done. Connect your computer to Orbi’s network, access the Orbilogin page and then complete the setup.
Fix 8: Reset Orbi
Resetting the Orbi should be considered the last option when you have applied all other solutions and are still stuck with the Orbi RBR50 setup. Perhaps due to multiple setup trials, there are some configuration settings on Orbi that are not letting the setup happen. Reset Orbi and then set it up.
To Briefly Conclude
Setting up the Netgear Orbi RBR50 mesh system becomes an easy job if you consider a few factors in mind. Now that you have set up your Orbi system, you can enjoy lag free internet connection.
