Nighthawk R7000 Updated to Firmware Version: V1.0.8.34

My Nighthawk R7000 AC1900 Dual Band WIFI just updated to Firmware Version: V1.0.8.34_1.2.15.  I used the process  Router Update, Check for new version from the Internet.

Where can I find the release notes for V1.0.8.34?

There seems to be a new Router Auto Firmware Update option.
What is the mechanism for the auto update?

Do I get a message giving me an option when the update will occur?

 

Thanks

I used the genie online update to get from 1.0.7.x to 1.0.8.x.  When I checked the download page, there are no release notes.  That is why I am asking where I can find 1.0.8.x notes.

Now checked via Genie app and only old version is available. Very strange.

Re: Nighthawk R7000 Updated to Firmware Version: V1.0.8.34

I just ran the manual Router update from Genie and my R7000 also updated to "Firmware Version V1.0.8.34_1.2.15".

I wonder what changes come with this FW other than the option to automatically update the FW.

Re: Nighthawk R7000 Updated to Firmware Version: V1.0.8.34

Checked my R7000 tonight and took a screen shot when checking for a firmware update.  I'm tempted to update but want to see what ElaineM says regarding this latest release.  Just got an email from Netgear Engineering regarding the WAN uptime status bug - hoping to work with them and find a resolution.  According to the release notes listed by the upgrade utility, it appears this new firmware allows for increased analystics data - maybe this will help pinpoint some strange issues we've all been having.

Make a backup copy of your current settings (.cfg file) under Advanced > Backup Settings and then do a hard reset of your router. Once it's been reset and you're connected via ethernet, it should cue the FW upgrade option when you're doing the initial setup again.

 

Then just upload that config file and your previous settings will be back.

You wrote to me? I checked firmware updates and there is no updates on my router. Strange.

Yes, I'm saying that if you really want to upgrade your FW now, try what I just recommended.

 

I didn't even know there was a new FW available today, but this morning I just so happened to do a hard reset of my modem and R7000 (by purshing reset pin on the back). And once everything was back on and I connected to the router via ethernet, Genie alterted me there was a new FW and so I did the update. So following those same steps will likely cue the FW update for you too should you like to act now.

I knew there to find, the question is there to get it now. Always we get links here if FW is not in support link. Why now we didn't get any post about new firmware.
