What happened to firmware 2.3?

The other day I upgraded my RBR50, RBS50 & RBR40 to firmware 2.3.0.32.  I had to use the 2.2.1.212 update first on the RBR50 to update to 2.3 and got it from on here on a dropbox account.  Now when I look, it's gone and 2.2.1.210 is back as the latest update, and the 2.3 is gone.  Was this a bad update?

Does anyone know what the deal is with this image? I type in "RBK5" and get all of the variants with each having a version with "NETGEAR Armor" and another without.

 

Each obviously takes you to the download page for the firmware downloads. Is there a difference?

Re: What happened to firmware 2.3?

NO FW difference. Just the K means Kit and each Kit has either 1 or 2 satellites in the box. 

FW is the same for the 50 series systems.

Re: What happened to firmware 2.3?

Thanks, Furry. You have to admit those entries are a bit confusing, though.

 

If users enter "RBK53", they're going to have to choose between two entries, one for Armor and one without, and how are they going to know those two are exactly the same?

 

I think Netgear needs to eliminate one or the other if there is no difference between the two.

Re: What happened to firmware 2.3?

I agree, not very informative on what is the difference. I see the file size is the same for v32 between the Armour and Non Armour versions.
