Today, NETGEAR has rolled out a new firmware package suitable for its Nighthawk X6 AC3200 (R8000) router, namely version 188.8.131.52, which manages to improve Nighthawk Remote management functionality and fix several security vulnerability issues.
In addition to that, the current release also adds support for tri-band smart connect, allows owners to set timezone to fix Auto-firmware update timing per local timezone, and resolves Internet performance when VLAN is turned ON and under a PPPoE connection.
When it comes to installation, ensure that NETGEAR’s router isn’t running a firmware that is either newer or matches this release, and write down all settings that have been changed from the default values, as they might be required after completing the upgrade.
If all is OK, save and unzip the downloadable archive, establish a wired connection between the AC3200 unit and a computer (recommended), log into its administration page using a web browser, and go to ADVANCED > Administration > Firmware Upgrade.
Now, hit “Browse,” navigate and select the newly-extracted .chk file, choose “Upload,” and wait patiently for the device to do its job. Do not interrupt this process in any way as this might cause serious malfunctions.
With this in mind, download NETGEAR R8000 Router Firmware 184.108.40.206, take into account all aspects as mentioned earlier, and always check our website to stay “updated one minute ago.”
