Thanks!  I might end up getting a base station, but will see how I go. Not the first to complain about buying this router on the basis of it's Arlo capabilities and then getting burnt! Makes me not want to buy a base station and give them more money.

Hi there,

Same issue with the firmware update here, old links for the R7000-V1.0.6.54_1.2.3.chk version are expired, could you please share a new one?

I have an R7k and used the beta versions of firmware to try to get Arlo capability. That effort was discontinued so the R7k is officially not able to replace an Arlo base station. You must use a base, regardless of the router.

I'm using the R7000 as an Arlo base station from the very beginning without any critical issue.

I just need to revert to the last Arlo working firmware because I made the great mistake to update the firmware, so please share it with me if you have it.

This is a Bad Idea. The Arlo firmware embedded in the beta firmware for the R7k is a year and a half old, forcing the cameras to be extremely out of date, too. It's not worth it.
