Nighthawk App

I am trying to set up might Nighthawk Mesh system with my C7000 router, but the Nighthawk App says my firmware is out of date. I have checked all over the Netgear website and my firmware is up to date. Spoke with customer service and they also confirmed my firmware is up to date and to try to uninstall and re-install the app. I have done that numerous times with no success. Any tips on setting up the Mesh system with out the app?

Re: Nighthawk App

The C7000 isn't user updatable. 



What mesh system are you trying to add? 

You can put the C7000 is modem only/bridge mode. This disables its router functions and just leaves it as a modem only device. 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBE973S-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80
