R7000 Bad New Firmware
Do not install firmware V220.127.116.11_10.2.44. It causes your router to tank after a couple hours. I have a R7000 I purchased a couple years ago. This last weekend I installed this new firmware update and after a couple hours maybe less all the lights on the unit were normal, but functionality wired or wireless was dead. After doing a power reset same results, it worked but after about a couple hours dead again. Thinking the unit had died being out of warranty I went and purchased a new one. When I updated the brand new R7000 with the new firmware released Sept. 27, 2018 same results happened. I noticed the units with the new firmware run hotter than before. Going to an older version of firmware eliminated the heat and dying problem after a couple hours. AGAIN, DO NOT USE FIRMWARE V18.104.22.168_10.2.44!
Re: R7000 Bad New Firmware
No surprise here. Firmware was released by Netgear the makers of CRAP firmware. Sold all my Netgears. Much happier now.
