Nighthawk AC1900 Smart wifi Router - Model R7000 (bought in 2016)

Hello everyone,

I would appreciate your thoughtful responses on the following:

 

1- My router shows firmware version V1.0.11.126_10.2.112.   Is this the latest version available and in what year was it released?  I ask because I have not received any updates for my router lately? 

 

2- If I decide to replace my router, I would like recommendations for a new router that can handle 30+ devices and also have the usual feature to Turn off wireless signal by schedule.

 

Thanks in advance

 

George

This would be most current FW: https://community.netgear.com/t5/Nighthawk-WiFi-Routers/New-R7000-Firmware-Version-1-0-11-134-Releas...

Ok, I downloaded the latest update to my router above.  It was a zip file that included the following files:

 

R7000xxxxxxx.chk and

Release notes

 

How do I open or use the .chk file?  Any help is appreciated.
