WNDR4500v3 Firmware version v1.0.0.60_Beta

Just received an email from NETGEAR indicating that there was a firmware upgrade v1.0.0.60.

I've followed the instructions to the letter yet, when I try to upload it returns "Please assign the correct file.The file format is *.img". Afterwards I did open the zip file and indeed found that it contained an image file and a link to the site explaining the new firmware addresses Security issues and instruction to the installation.for the software upgrade. Where is the file? What did I miss? Confused. Thank you for any guidance.

   Sure you did.  _Which_ "the instructions"?  What, exactly, did you
do?

 

> [...] when I try to upload it [...]

 

   "it"?  The zip archive itself (wrong), or the firmware image file
(".img") which you extracted from the zip archive (right), or what?

   "Afterwards" is too late.  "open" how, exactly?

 

> [...] Where is the file? [...]

 

   It's in the zip archive.  You need to extract it from the zip
archive.  If you're running some version of Windows, then right-click on
the zip archive file (in File Explorer), and select "Extract all..." to
extract the files in the zip archive.

   That's not a link; it's the whole document.
