I am a novice in this stuff, I do not understand what the "firmware upgrade be percformed on a computer with a wired connection.  Everything I have is wireless.  Can I do the upgrade wirelessly?  Thank you for your help!

No need to get wired to do an update.


Just login to the router's web interface.


You can read about this on page 133 of the full manual:


R6400 | Product | Support | NETGEAR



Just another user.

My network DM200 -> R7800 -> GS316 -> PL1000 -> Orbi RBR40 -> Orbi RBS50Y -> RBS40V

Re: R6400 Firmware update

Do not enable Downstream QoS after installing the latest firmware. It will cause the router to lose its ability to pull an IP address from your modem. If that happens, then your only option will be to use it in AP mode until they release a fix for it.
