I have the Multy X System. I've got the latest app version downloaded. But I cannot seem to upgrade to the latest firmware V2.00(ABKJ.1)CO via the app. It keeps saying Firmware upgrade failed try again. Must have tried 10 times. I've even restarted my entire system. How do I upgrade to the latest firmware? Is there a downloadable file and a way to manually update this via Ethernet??? I'm doing this on an iPhone X. Why is this so difficult and how can you sys release a firmware upgrade without thoroughly testing the same!!!? In these situation Eero, Linksys, Netgear all offer direct firmware upgrades via ethernet. Surely the Multy X team have thought of this and created a back door when the app update fails????

    Sorry to hear that you are having a problem. Just for info, I upgraded my Multy X set this morning via my iPhone 8 Plus (iOS 11.2.6). It worked like a dream! I downloaded the updated app and as soon as it started was informed that new firmware was available. The update took no more than five minutes.

    I would hesitate to compare the Multy X with Netgear’s Orbi. One huge advantage of Zyxel’s approach is that the kit actually works! I started out with the Orbi and was pleased to exchange for the Multy X after countless issues. One look at Netgear’s Orbi forum and you will see that after several months and literally hundreds of messages from disappointed users, a good number still suffer intermittent problems.

    i hope someone from Zyxel will be able to solve your issue.

    I have the exact same problem - just completed setup 2 boxes and get a msg that FW is outdated, update now. After a few minutes I just get > FW update failed > retry or remind me later.
    Reset box, same issue. !!

    Very annoying this. Please advice. Everything seems to be running apart from this.
