R7500 v1 - How long does firmware update take?
Trying to update firmware version from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199.
I've downloaded the img file from the support page for my model (version 1), gone to the firmware update page on "routerlogin.net", browsed for the file and clicked upload.
The screen says "Please wait a moment" but it has already been 20 minutes and nothing has happened. There is not a status bar and the router LED has been white the whole time.
In release notes it says:
- The upgrade process is completed when the on screen progress bar completes.
- If the upgrade progress bar on web GUI doesn’t display correctly during firmware upgrade, you can still check the status using Power LED. The Power LED should be blinking (amber) during firmware upgrade. After firmware upgrade is done and boots up the system, it changes to steady amber color.
Please DO NOT power off or reboot the device during firmware upgrade, otherwise, it may result to a corrupt firmware and cause the device not to work.

Not sure what I was supposed to see from that link but what I did get from it was that the router probably wasn't going to do anything at this point and I felt comfortable enough to try again. Using the same browser tab, I went to routerlogin.net (needed to login again as it has been over an hour) and miracously the firmware version now shows v188.8.131.52.
So thank you for giving me the confidence that I wasn't going to do any harm by restarting the process.
