Re: good deal But you should worry more about this little gem: In some cases, in order to provide an optimal experience on your home network, some updates may still be automatically applied, regardless of the auto-update setting. So, essentially, Cisco is saying that the auto-update checkbox is just a request that they don't update your firmware, a request that they reserve the right to ignore.
Microsoft does the same thing sometimes. I have my updates to ask before downloading. Once in the middle of a game my machine rebooted and applied updates. Now I block *.microsoft.com on my firewall and only allow it when I want to check myself.
Of course they do this to protect idgits from themselves (at least in their mind)
