AVOID R7800 1.0.2.74 Firmware -- breaks functionality

I just installed and tested R7800 1.0.2.74 firmware.  FW .74 breaks using TCPDUMP to capture wireless activity (nothing is captured).  Reverted back to .68 and everything works again.

 

Netgear, please get your act together. @DarrenM

That's probably not the killer bugfix most customers are behind @duckware 8-)))

So because you can't capture packets, all should just avoid it? How many people do what you do and what kind of thinking is that?

The feature broken is not even an official part of the product: It's neither mentioned on the Data Sheet, nor is it in the User Manual. 8-)
