No, that one and all the original beta's have been pulled due to stability problems. A new set of beta's have been released with lower numbers and no Arlo support.

 

The most recent is https://community.netgear.com/t5/Nighthawk-WiFi-Routers/R7000-Beta-FW-1-0-5-62/td-p/1078114 and if you apply it, since you have a later version you should RESET the router after application and re-enter all settings manually.

Re: R7000 Firmware

Hi

 

Now I am not too sure which version I should use to update my R7000, I hear this R7000-V1.0.5.64_1.1.88 version is a new update and then there is the beta version R7000-V1.0.5.62_1.1.87.

Which one I should use?

 

Do I really need to wipe off all my settings to factory default after the update? Can I just restore my router backup?

The V1.0.64 is an Official release, the other is a Beta. Probably the official release is the beta but you can't be sure it doesn't have some fixes in it. There is a FIX LIST on the link to get the file.

 

Since it seems you have a version that is numbered higher than either of the two listed you should reset and re-apply (not load a saved settings backup) your setting. People whom have NOT done this have experienced problems going backwards with releases.

Yes since you are coming from V1.0.6. Manually re-enter the settings.

Re: R7000 Firmware

 

I have updated my R7000 to V1.0.5.64_1.1.88  but there no Arlo page in this version, how do I activate my Arlo Cam thru the router, I don't have the base, the old firmware version had did and it worked great. The only thing I see in the new version firmware the Arlo Cam shows is active on the "Attached Device" page, the Arlo Web Portal tells me its offline, I've set it up as a new device (Arlo) but it failed, just can't find the device, I removed all the devices on Arlo Web Portal to start all over again, as new device Router (not base) and now it can't find my router.

Re: R7000 Firmware

This official release does NOT support Arlo, only the old recalled beta's did.

What happened?

 

Do I need to update to the R7000-V1.0.5.62_1.1.87 beta firmware?

Nope, that support was removed by Netgear. Call them, they might be able to get you one with that support, but right now it isn't in any official F/W or beta.

Hi Sa9aX11,

 

If you have R7000 for Arlo, I would suggest contacting support team as they options for your Arlo device.

I did mention about the latest firmware not having Arlo page but I still didn't get an answer from support.

Hi Sa9aX11,

 

They should be able to provide you the beta firmware.

Hi Sa9aX11,

 

Do you have the beta firmware already for Arlo support?
