Nighthawk App - Unable to Update Firmware


Nighthawk App - Unable to Update Firmware

I downloaded the Nighthawk app from the Apple Store for my Nighthawk X4S router.  I am able to get around okay around the app except that it says that an update is available (Red Update), but it is unable to install and says "Update Error".  My current firmware is and states that New Version Available is  But I have tried multiple times and still unable to update.  I log into my router from my laptop and it says that there is no update available.  Confusing.  Any ideas?  Thanks for your help.

Re: Nighthawk App - Unable to Update Firmware

The site where the router gets its update info is not always current. Go to netgear support website and put in your router model. Will take you to download page where you will find that yes there is a .58 version available. Download it and install manually. When on download for the firmware read the release notes as this will tell you fixes and how to install.
