Nighthawk AC1900 R7000 - Purchased in Jan. 2015, never have updated. How/what should I update now?

I purchased the Nighthawk in January 2015. Never update it (because due to travel was away more than 7 months per year.) Now finally home and would like to download/install needed updates. What should I do to update it? Thank you.

Go here, download the latest firmware and follow the instructions in the ZIP file or the online manual to update the firmware.  Use an Ethernet connection to perform the update.  

 

It's strongly recommended for you to perform a factory reset after you update the firmware.  Then reconfigure by hand.  Don't load settings saved from a backup file because they are likely to be incompatible.  Write down the settings before you update.
