Re: Too F***ing Late...!
Until the recent Emergency Patch for the R7000, the previous few FW releases broke more than they fixed... So, because this was such a serious vunerability, I installed it. After I done this, every time I went into the WAN Setup page in the web-GUI - I had to power-cycle the router.
Two nice things about the R7000:
1) The hardware's very powerful for the price - even if it does look like some demented Steampunk dinosaur with four massive black spines sticking out of its back, and a line of flashing lights that wouldn't disgrace a Cylon Centurion.
2) It's easy to replace the crap Netgear firmware with much more capable Tomato firmware. Which I did as soon as I got mine, and no problems since with regular updates.
