R7000 FW 188.8.131.52 breaks AFP access to Readyshare volumes
I have had a USB HD attached to my R7000 for the purpose of hosting Mac OS Time Machine backups for several Macs on the network. Upon upgrading to FW 184.108.40.206, none of my devices could any longer access the Readyshare network volumes by AFP as previously configured. (AFP file services are still advertised by Bonjour, but you can't do it.) SMB access still works in general, but Time Machine rejects the these SMB mounts for use as backup volumes. I spent about four or five hours trying to find a workaround or accommodation, then eventually just went back to FW 220.127.116.11, and it works the way it used to work. This is a little bit different problem than the other FW 18.104.22.168 Readyshare bugs that I've read about, but completely unusable.

Same issue here, rolled back to 126.96.36.199 while waiting for a new firmware. Thanks Netgear
