Thanks for another hassle free update.

Although the 7800 was first introduced in 2016 and might be considered somewhat ancient, you've extended it's life considerably with your firmware updates.

I have no urge to replace my 7800.

The R7800 is a very decent router hardware-wise. It's not as old as the R7000 which still sells a lot. I personally have no need to replace my R7800.

Ancient...

Out of topic. Just for fun: do you realize that your R7800 is powered by much more powerful CPU vs e.g. most modern aircraft on-board computer (avionics) you are flying? Airbus/Boeing. And much much much more powerful vs e.g. Mars Exploration Rovers...

Reliability and safety...

The 7800 hardware design engineers made an excellent choice using the Qualcomm Atheros chipset.
