This is for the Netgear users that have their routers and extenders , I got an email last night saying that you need to update your Firmware to the newest out at the Netgear.com/support website .

Certain models of the Routers have an open hole that hackers can get into some way or another .

I updated mine this morning and it kept all my previous settings so I didn't have to do anything but download the newest Firmware and install it .


So update ASAP and you should be good to go , but I took screen shots of all my setting just in case it did go back to default . So you might want to do the same and I'm not liable if you accidentially make it unusable .


I'm just trying to help out and keep everything safe for you Netgear users .
