R7000 Can't turn off WPS PIN after firmware upgrade

I upgraded to V1.0.9.64_10.2.64 firmware on my R7000. Hard reset and then entered all my settings manually again. If I uncheck Enable WPS Pin and click apply, the page comes back with Enable WPS Pin still checked. Tried multiple times, resets, reboots. Same result.

Settings not sticking should never happen. Downgrading to last firmware unless someone's got a fix. Thanks.

Clear the browser cache and try changing the setting again. If that doesn't work then roll back to version 1.0.9.42 and wait for 1.0.9.88 to be released.

Re: R7000 Can't turn off WPS PIN after firmware upgrade

Hi. Same issue on "Firmware Version V1.0.9.88_10.2.88". Is there a fix for disabling WPS or do we have to roll back "V1.0.9.88_10.2.88" also?

I had to roll back to V1.0.9.60_10.2.60

Then I was able to disable WPS again. Netgear come on!

Well this sucks! Looks like this is the only viable method for now till Netgear figures out a fix. Thanks

Re: R7000 Can't turn off WPS PIN after firmware upgrade

The WPS issue was the least of my problems with 1.0.9.88. Most of my 30 devices couldn't stay connected for more than a few hours. They would connect again after a reboot but 3 hours later the connections would drop again.

 

I gave up and bought a new router (not Netgear)
