    Synology NICs - Firmware Updates?

    I run a Synology E10G18-T1 in one of my NASes and it has been ticking along for a few years now. In all that time it has not had a firmware update nor has Synology added anything to DSM to enable their NICs to be updated in-situ. The firmware on the NIC is from 2018 and has been superseded...
