RBS20 firmware version

Currenltly using 2.5.1.16 and check for upgrade on orbilogin says none available.  But Netgear website says current download version is 2.6.1.38.

 

Should I manually upgrade

 

Why does orbilogin not suggest new version?

Re: RBS20 firmware version

NG hasn't put the newer up on there auto update servers is all. You can update as well. Seen some users post having problems with recent versions of FW. You can manually download and manually update your system if you want to.

If you choose to update, update the RBS first then RBR lastly. I would perform a reset on the system and setup from scratch after loading FW if you notice problems after the update is applied.

If some users having trouble with new FW, should I wait until formally release on orbilogin?
