Latest firmware release R7000 AC1900

Latest firmware released 15 Sep 2021 for the R7000 AC1900 - v.128

 

https://kb.netgear.com/000064024/R7000-Firmware-Version-1-0-11-128

 

I have the latest version Nighthawk App 2.11.6.0 installed on my iphone and yes, you guessed it, if you hit the 'Check for Updates' box, it carries out a check and comes back 'Firmware is up to date. No new firmware is available at this time.' I'm currently on firmware v.126. The only reason I found out there was an update, was by checking Netgear's download page for the R7000.

 

Come on Netgear, sort this out!

Re: Latest firmware release R7000 AC1900

I've updated my R7000 to v.128. Prior to doing so whilst still on v.126, I checked in the router browser GUI and pressed the check for updates box. It came back as no update available.

 

I then uploaded the firmware to v.128, successful, no dramas.

 

Of course all done via ethernet. I still don't trust updating over WiFi or via the Nighthawk App.

 

All appears to be working as it should.

Re: Latest firmware release R7000 AC1900

Thanks, Portwey84, for the heads up. I am still on a quite old, but stable (for me) firmware release (V1.0.9.42_10.2.44) and still enjoying this router. Messages like yours make me consider jumping to the newest version, possibly safer than the (very) old ones. I keep on reading here!
