Firmware Update Instructions:

To update your product’s firmware, follow the instructions in your product’s user manual. To find your user manual, visit https://www.netgear.com/support/, enter your model number in the search box, and click the Documenta...

 

NOTE: Nighthawk app or the routers web page may not report seeing new FW updates. NG may not push this to there auto update services immediately and may activate the newer FW update being seen on there auto update services at a later time. User will have the choice to manually update if you want too.

 

To Manually update FW on the router if this isn't seen on the routers web page:

NOTE: Use a wired PC and web browser to update router FW. If continued problems are seen after a FW update, it's recommended to try a >factory reset and setup from scratch with out loading any saved configurations from backup files.

After setting up from scratch and the system is working well, be sure to save a new backup configuration to file for safe keeping and save time if another factory reset needs to be done. Saves time here:

Glad to see that this fixes the DDoS false positive issue. Support sent me a test firmware fix a while back which worked out. Man issue from before was they kept on appearing every 10 seconds and now, they are basically gone.

Checked for update in Nighthawk app and nothing yet. If any update needed to be pushed out automatically quickly, it’s definitely this one. Common Netgear….

If you don't see it via Auto Update, then manually load it. Reason why there is the FW file. 

NG may not be auto pushing this one.

Ridiculous. Should not have to do that and needs to be rolled out via Nighthawk app.

If I did manually update, can I do it over WiFi? Or does it have to be ethernet?

If you have a good wifi connection and close to the router, yes.

I went ahead and manually updated over WiFi just fine using my iPhone.
