Netgear R6300v2 firmware update
I have a COX-supplied Netgear R6300v2 router with firmware V22.214.171.124_10.0.94COX. There have been several firmware updates since this version, but none made available from COX. With the recent severe security vulnerabilities announced by Netgear (https://kb.netgear.com/000061982/Security-Advisory-for-Multiple-Vulnerabilities-on-Some-Routers-Mobile-Routers-Modems-Gateways-and-Extenders), it is imperative that the firmware be updated ASAP. I am unable to install the latest firmware obtained from Netgear's website, because the custom COX firmware prevents such an action. I contacted Netgear support and they told me the ISP-specific firmware loaded on the device will not allow a Netgear firmware - it can only be supplanted by another version of ISP-specific firmware. I contacted COX support via chat, and they told me Netgear has to support it. There are at least three other posts here on COX support forums and several posts on Netgear's forums with the same situation - Netgear points to the ISP and the ISP points to Netgear. Meanwhile, the customer is vulnerable to a remote attack and data theft. Must I resort to purchasing a new router?
