New netgear router I am yet to set this up and was wandering if i should download the latest firmware before installation or weather it would need a this before it would work properly?

No, if it works okay, don't risk it! If it doesn't work out of the box, get it swapped for another. Never upgrade firmware in a router - or any device for that matter - unless you are experiencing an issue that could be solved that way. It can create more problems than it may solve. As the saying goes "if it ain't broke..."
