I'm currently running the firmware, which was released in November 2021. It's quite old but my router has been stable so I've been reluctant to upgrade the firmware because I don't want to risk bricking the router.

I was taking a look at the current firmware - https://www.asus.com/networking-iot...s/rt-ax82u/helpdesk_bios/?model2Name=RT-AX82U - and noticed that the most recent version states the following:

If you want to upload the firmware file manually, please check your RT-AX82U firmware version is greater or equal to If not, please manual upgrade your RT-AX82U to first.

Instead of manual upgrade the firmware, we suggest you to upgrade the firmware through live update function by clicking the check firmware version in the ASUS router app--> Settings --> firmware upgrade.
Or click the check button in web GUI --> Administration --> Firmware upgrade.

Is it generally fine to upgrade the router firmware from the router admin page even when the current firmware is over 1 year old and there have been several updates in between?
