What is the latest update on this Router?

What is the latest update on this Router?

Back in Dec 2016, I received an e-mail from Netgear with a link to a new Security Update for my R8000 Router.  I was not able to complete the update until now.  The link on the e-mail was for update: R8000-V1.0.3.26_1.1.18.chk.  When I loged into my Router, I found that it was telling me there was an update to be completed.  I completed the update that the Router informed me of.  The update that the router told me of is VI.0.3.36_1.1.25   When I completed the update, I noticed that the update requested via e-mail in Dec. 2016 is different than the update that the rounter told me to do.  Which one is the most updated update?  Should I do the Dec. 2016 update as well? Perhaps these to two entirely different types of updates.  Not sure.   I fear that I maybe going backwords if I do the security update now.  Perhaps the only update I need to do is the V1.0.3.361.1.25  that the router told me to do?  Can anyone out there point me in the right direction?  Thanks for your time with this!!

You can always find the latest official firmware on the support pages for your device:

 

>>>>> R8000 | Product | Support | NETGEAR <<<<<

 

This says the latest is Firmware Version 1.0.3.36.

 

The manual there will also tell you how to update the firmware yourself. It comes as a zip file that you have to unpack to get at the .chk file.

Just another user with a set of boilerplate macros.

My network DM200 -> R7800 -> GS316 -> PL1000 -> Orbi RBR40 -> Orbi RBS50Y -> RBS40V
