Re: R7000 firmware version 1.0.5.64_1.1.88 released today

They've now bumped the version number up to R7000 Firmware Version 1.0.5.70, with what appear to be some minor changes.

Well imagine that. After a week of nothing but problems, this new firmware fixed my problems. Thanks to all of those who have helped me try to find a solution to my woes. Unfortunately, I can't say the same towards the Netgear people as throughout my ordeal, not ONCE did I hear from them. Shady customer service at its best.

 

So this is what I think: Netgear does have a good product when it works but the same can't be said about their relation with us, the customers. Very sad.

Does 1.0.5.70 fix the GUI not changing?  I had the same problems as some where when I downgraded from 1.0.6.40 to 1.0.5.64 the GUI stayed at 1.0.6.40-2.1.38.1.  The funny thing is I was having strang wireless issues untill I put 1.0.6.40 back on.  So was wondering if anyone downgraded to 1.0.5.70 without any issues?  And yes I reset my modem each time and manually changed settings each time I allways update my modem.

I don't know about your problems but for me, going to 1.0.5.70 fixed my nightmares.

I was having speed issues on my wireless 2.5Ghz.  My speeds were all over the place.  I think it had to do with trying to downgrade firmware and the GUI staying the same version no matter which firmware I tried.

Have you tried the 1.0.5.70 on your router? That's the one that worked for me.

Not yet, but before I did, I was was inquiring to see if it fixed the GUI not changing before I did?   I didn't want to go through all the trouble with resetting and reconfiguring everything if it didn't work for others.  I had a suspicion it had to do with the GUI staying the same when downgrading to 1.0.5.64.

Well for me, it did a whole lot of difference. One thing I did and it usually isn't recommended was I saved the configuration before I updated the firmware. I know we are supposed to start from scratch but in my case, I had done it way too many times. Long story short, after saving the cfg file and updating the firmware, yes it cured all my problems. Yes the GUI is updated to the latest firmware but all is good. I don't careless if there is a newer update as I won't install it. Working on a network probleem for a week is counter productive. Right now it is solid again and I want it to stay like that.

 

Hope you find the same success as I did.
