New Firmware 4.1.0.7

I received an email from insightalerts@netgear.com indicating a new firmware available for the WAC510.  But the TAR file is nowhere to be found.

 

The following firmware is available to upgrade your device:

Firmware Details:
Model WAC510
Firmware Version: 4.1.0.7

Why would I be unable to find it?

Hi ALL,

 

The new AP FW can be upgraded to the APs managed from Insight App by clicking on the Networks -> Firmware management -> click update (you will see Current version and Update version).

 

After clicking "Update" button, the new AP FW V4.1.0.7 will start upgrading to the device automatically.

 

Hope this helps.

Amazingly, the common download area ie. Support / WAC510 / Firmware and Software Downloads -> Current Versions -> Firmware Version 4.1.0.7 does not contain a download for the effective firmware image.

 

Instead, there is just a link to the WAC505 / WAC510 Firmware Version 4.1.0.7 release notes - which does again contain a download link near to the end of the text. Some reading would easily self-answer these questions however. 

 

Strange Netgear policy change, or simply lazyness? @SanthoP - not everyone does want to use live update mechanisms, but stick with the classic download, expand .zip to .tar and upload by browser instead.

Hi @schumaku

 

Did you checked this page  https://kb.netgear.com/000055983/WAC505-WAC510-Firmware-Version-4-1-0-7

 

This is the common download area. Please check if you see differently.

 

Thanks,

Raghu

Yes, these are the release notes I was talking of before. Still no direct firmware download available - this does not fit to other products and earlier releases.
