Netgear R7800 drop internet connection

I've got an R7800 which I'm trying to update from the web interface, checking for a new version from the internet. I've got v 1.0.2.46 installed. I know there is a later version, but this doesn't find it. Is the later version not yet released to the internet updating system?

 

Also, i know my previous R7000 could be configured to automatically apply updates as they became available. Does the R7800 have similar capabilty?

 

Thanks,

Gary Berg

   Apparently.  Coordination on that is chronically poor.  Visit
http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look for
Downloads.  (For older versions, under Firmware and Software Downloads,
look for "View Previous Versions".)  Find the kit(s).  Download the
kit(s) you want.  Read the "Release Notes" file for instructions.

   I don't know, but, if it did, I'd expect it to appear on the R7800
management web site in the same place as it did on the R7000 management
web site.

   Considering the new-bugs incidence in Netgear firmware releases, I'd

be in no hurry to enable automatic updates on any of their products.

@Gary_Berg

Auto Update was implemented in 1.0.2.52

 

Suggest you disable it as @antinode suggests.
