R8500 firmware confusion

hi

 

my router started acting slow so i rebooted, factory reset.. blah blah blah..

but white i checked for updates i noticed it upgrade to 1.0.2.144 firmware?

 

there is no info on this on the r8500 download webpage?

 

https://www.netgear.com/support/product/R8500.aspx#download

1.0.2.136 is still the newest version so whats going on? and how are you supposed to check for updates via the webpage?

 

why can i not find any info about 1.0.2.144 firmware my router has not been hacked has it?

 

thx

Sometimes the automatic update service gets the update pushed earlier than the manual server. I've seen it from a couple days to a couple weeks early
