R8000 Firmware

How is the firmware 1.0.4.4? Are there any bugs or anything like the R7000 1.0.9.18 has or anything like that?

Hi DiVuldge
Old saying " If it ain't broke, don't fix it" applies truly in your case. Any FW version earlier and include 1.0.3.54 seems to work fine, may be at the expenses of not getting latest security update. As far as I'm concerned, R8000 is not on list for recent security risk.
I guess I have to wait for NETGEAR to come up with firmware that will work. For now, I'm skipping update firmware 1.0.4.4 and 1.0.4.2 altogether

Re: R8000 Firmware

Very buggy. There are lots of discussion lately about this FW not working, most likely internet disconnection, possibly due to IP gateway messed up.
I'm staying with FW 1.0.3.54 right now after days of headaches with 1.0.4.4, and this older FW is STABLE.
I think NETGEAR is aware of the problem and is testing on the beta right now, namely 1.0.4.8
I will post update after I upgrade to 1.0.4.8.
Some people reported disconnect and reconnect again with the device hooked up with router with the beta firmware. I have to see it to myself.

Re: R8000 Firmware

So my 8000 came with 1.0.3.46, is it worth putting 1.0.3.54 on it? I've had it two days and it's stable.I'm just curious about whether I should update it and if others have problems with 1.0.3.54

 

Thank-You
