firmware upgrade r6220

just did an online search for updated firmware for my ac1200 r6220 router and online search shows there is a new firmware available, version 1.1.0.92,  but when checking from the routers online gui, it doesn't find it. i see the download online is for a beta update which i really want no part of, so kind of glad the routers gui didn't find it. currently have version 1.1.0.86 firmware.

 

i guess my question is will there be a final release of this that my web gui eventually does see? first time iver ever seen a beta release when searching online.

 

thank you

Re: firmware upgrade r6220

Its a security fix. 

They usually roll it into future updates but push it out to close a security issue on that specific device instead of waiting on a larger firmware release.

Re: firmware upgrade r6220

ya, i saw that, but release notes don't say squat about what the fixes are. i installed it anyway and all is good except for that nighthawk app advertisement i now see in the gui!!

Re: firmware upgrade r6220

fwiw,

this hotfix breaks ipv6 connection constantly. reverting back to previous version fixes it.
