Re: R 8300 Firmware update

There was no answer the last time someone asked @molson2 those questions:


Will not update. Never has updated. V1. 0 2.86_1.0... - NETGEAR Communities


Maybe they were, quite understandably, put off by the response they received there.

Just another user with a set of boilerplate macros.

My network DM200 -> R7800 -> GS316 -> PL1000 -> Orbi RBR40 -> Orbi RBS50Y -> RBS40V
