Is there any particular reason that "Check for updates" no longer works on the R7000 and R7000P ?

Is there any particular reason that "Check for updates" no longer works on the R7000 and R7000P ?

So - as per title, last night i checked in with my routers to see if there were any updates. Nothing. Again.

So then i go search on the forums and find that there were updates for the R7000 and the R7000P that i own.

 

I check this regularly using the check button in the admin pages.

So what's the deal with that ? Did netgear just decide not to do it anymore ? Did they think to advise anyone ?

 

I think i am finally done with these routers when they bite the dust. They are ugly looking things in any case. 

Time to upgrade.

Like other things Netgear they seem to be really late at posting new versions for the check. Go here and put in your model number and you will be taken to site where you can download latest and do a manual install.
