  1. This resolved the issue for me. I never turned instant on back on following the update to .40, but after disabling instant on, I was fine. I’m wandering if it has to do with the lease timer. I know an Xbox will look like you’re getting intruders on your log, because so many remote access attempts pop up (servers, players, etc). It may cut connections as a security. Idk, just a wild theory. If you do not have an xbox, every console has a sleep mode, which is the same as leaving an Xbox in instant on. Do a full shut down every time you turn the system off. See if that works. Good luck!

    XR700 Overheating

    Good morning, Problem appears solved after a night of interference free gaming (via LAN) and streaming (via WLAN). The following were my actions, and currently altered settings: After Installing previous firmware, problem persisted. I did a factory reset of the modem and router, unplugged them both as they started booting up, waited the 10 minutes. Power the modem, waited 5 minutes, then powered the router. Went through initial set up with the original firmware (without updating). IPv4 and IPv6 NATs both open. Geo filter set with XBox filtering strict. XBox set in DMZ. Tomorrow night I’ll turn the anti-bufferbloat on and see if it causes an issue. But I think I’m good to go now. Thanks for the help guys!

    XR700 Overheating

    Thank you for the quick and helpful replies! In regards to the fan, I set the fan thresholds all to 0 after the overheat and to 4000rpm. It’s still much quieter than I’d expect (with the understanding it is designed to be quite), but does run at all times now. I believe I have a hardware issue making the temp read outs lower than they are, or irrelevant, which aided the fan to never kick on in the first place. When temps are set to 5, the fan never turns on. At 0, the fan is automatically turned on without the true threshold it appears. As for ventilation, it is in a great location, wide open area. I’m sure there must be defective hardware, and a replacement is already on its way. I personally don’t like that the heat produced by the unit is ventilated downward, and there’s minimal ground clearance. It seems this leaves a designed heat trap. But with proper hardware and modified thresholds, I’m hoping the unit will be fine. The fan is quite large inside, so a properly operational one should have no problem, even with the low clearance. If it needs raised up, I could always through some spacers under its feet. I played with all of the settings last night...all of them. The problem still persists. Today I will downgrade firmware, as that seems to be a fix for a few people, and was made a confident attempt by micbot’s statement. As far as I could tell from the logs, right as the problem occurred, two logs were entered right at the time the momentary disconnect occurs, and I’m fairly unfamiliar with log entries and the meaning/normalcy of said logs. Both logs are with XBox one x. One log is the upnp’s delete nat rule log that seems a normal upnp action after I looked around across forums. The Second log mentions the QoS becoming active, then immediately creates a log following saying a LAN QoS is deactivate...Something like that. I can go in and get the exact logs if you’d like. I’m sitting with the baby right now and trying to remember off the top of my head the verbiage. My apologies. Come to think of it, the only setting I didn’t try for some reason is disabling the QoS and it’s traffic prioritization. I just thought of it as I described the logs. The problem seems to only be occurring when the XBox is on, and the QoS switching in the logs seems strange how it’s written. I might try that before I downgrade firmware just for trial and error purposes. I doubt it will work, but what the heck, right? Thank you again for the help, as always. You guys are awesome on here, and I’d be in the dark without you all.
  4. Hello, Just installed the xr700, replacing the xr500. It took an hour for disconnects to start. Happened 3 times within the second hour. Became frustrated, and proceeded to switch the 700 out for the 500. While doing so, the vents were alarmingly hot on the xr700. The device was overheating. There does not appear to be built in ventilation, so there is no real fix for the problem. Questions: Does anyone have any suggestions? Is this a recurring problem with owners? Is this a known problem? Thank you all so much for your time, and I hope this can be solved.
  5. Just an update: I've been using the XR500 again with all the same settings and properties, as well as ISP and modem, and all the same hardware connected. All is the exact same with the single exception of my Xbox One X being in "energy-Saver" mode vs the prior used "instant on". After 48 hours now, I've had not a single random reboot! Prior to this attempt using the XR500, I would have had at least 4 reboots, maybe up to 10. But I've had zero, so this was an undeniable fix. I'm not sure why this would cause the issue, but it seems to have been the whole time...wild. Anyway, thanks for all the hard work as I'm sure issues like this have to be like finding a needle in a haystack. So thank you to everyone with Duma.
  6. @Netduma Fraser The router was already returned, but I'd like to give it another shot because without the rebooting issue, it's absolutely amazing. So I'll get it again, attempt turning off the power saving settings on xbox and what not, then let you know how it goes. Will probably be a week or so, but I'll tag you when I've attempted it. Thanks for the quick response!
  7. Here's the story: I bought an XR500, and used it with a CM1000 modem. The XR500 would randomly reboot multiple times a day, whether actively using connected devices or not This was random, but seemed to occur every 3-8 hours. When it reboots, I then need to reset it because the LAN and wireless would not work. Sometimes, the unit would not reboot, just simply drop the LAN connections and continue to stream through wifi. The full random reboot was more common at approx 2:1. When this occurs, I can connect directly into the modem and it works just fine, so it can't be the ISP or the Modem from what I understand. I contacted netgear, who through team viewer, didnt change much on the settings (she switched to "use PC MAC Address" (originally the XR500's MAC), and "Use this DHCP" (Origninally obtained from ISP). She then stated that if it didnt work to exchange the unit. The problem persisted, so I did exchange the unit. The same problem persisted. I tried every suggestion on this thread except for 2. Those are: downgrade firmware. Turn off the auto on feature on Xbox One. This seems to have initially worked for a couple people on these threads, but have never confirmed it corrected the issue entirely, and chronically. My question through this: Has there been any confirmed solution to this issue? I tried every suggestion, and returned the unit, going with the Asus Ac2900. But nothing seems to touch the XR500 when its functioning. I'd really like to pick it up again, but I need to know I can make it stable. I believe I've ruled out any hardware malfunction across the board (unless I freakishly got 2 defective units back to back), and have ruled out ISP issues. So it must be a software issue, correct? Please Netduma friends, even if there is no "confirmed" solution, if you have a solid guess as to what could solve this issue, I would love to repurchase the unit and attempt it again. Thank you so much for your time and I apologize for such a long read!
