[MyNETGEAR] email notification about available firmware updates (not)

Hard to believe that hacking my own cron script is the official solution (cf. https://community.netgear.com/t5/General-WiFi-Routers-Non/Email-notifications-of-firmware-updates/m-...). Plus I will need to adapt my script whenever the web design gurus decide it's time for a look and feel refreshment. And I will get new updates again only after I realized that my script no longer works due to the web page overhaul.


It's 2019, eveybody else has this feature in their support for registered products too, so just give me a check-box to enable "notify me by email of available firmware and software updates for all my registered products and devices". Full stop. Please.

+1000 on this. It's kinda wack to have to manually check for firmware updates for my BR500.
