    Hybrid VPN - Filter Plex Traffic

    OK - I would prefer to use the TV only since it's 4K and supports HDR, and the old man won't let me have ANY consoles hooked up. 🤣

    Hybrid VPN - Filter Plex Traffic

    Sorry I took so long to reply. Yes, the Plex Client App on my TV displays the remote server port, but still I've tried adding it so many way in the advanced tab, only option works is doing 1:65535 but then all traffic filters through the VPN I don't want this, the remote port which my TV displays is: 32400 > I assume this is for remote access from TV > Plex Server. I have a seedbox so it comes with a free Plex server addon. 😂
  3. The issue is Netgear haven't added an option to their IPv6 which allows customers whom are on Sky or any other provider to get an IPv6 address natively, meaning you cannot get it through the PPPoE side since Sky have weird authentication and I think correct me wrong non of the options without the use of 6 to 4 tunnel work, because when I ran an Asus router in their IPv6 options as with DDWRT they all have the XR500 option plus get it an IPv6 address natively meaning once the router sends the Sky authentication MER, IPv4 WAN come ups it grabs the IPv6 information too and sets it up from the intial IPv4 connection, don't even ask me about the authentication methods I just know from previous routers this is how IPv6 was implemented naturally and not using 6to4 tunnel. We're hoping Netgear sort this hassle out and updates their IPv6 implementation and bring up to Asus's standards.
  4. Hopefully this will benefit us Sky Fibre customers, I know their methods are backwards as in regards to authentication to getting custom routers are concerned, hopefully Netgear WILL implement the naitive IPV6 option, many other router brands already have this with the exception of Netgear. Can't fault the XR500 - Hopefully upgrade to XR700 in the future.

    Hybrid VPN - Filter Plex Traffic

    I'm not using Plex on a PC/Laptop, I am using Plex through a LG SmartTV... LG Smart TV > XR500 > VPN > WAN 🤗

    Hybrid VPN - Filter Plex Traffic

    Tbh I've tried adding the ports but can't add more, the only way I can get buffer free is to add 1:65535 but that means my whole TV is exposed.
  7. Hello. First off I am not having ANY issues with the hybrid VPN. I am running NordVPN which connects fine then I'm running my smart TV through the VPN, but I don't want my Plex traffic to be filtered through the VPN which incures buffering when streaming. Would it be possible for the devs to add in the "Don't VPN Services" a Plex option, so any Plex traffic is filtered to my ISP and avoids the VPN. 😀

    NordVPN Support / .OVPN

    Sorry my mistake, I'll try to explain again... Basically what Im requesting 1 of 2 things, that you add supoort for .opvn files, essentially meaning if a VPN such as NordVPN which support different servers in the same country the end user wants to be able to download that .opvn config file goto to the Hybrib VPN option and able to upload that .opvn configuration file to the router, hence adding a "browse" button to essentially make it OpenVPN friendly, the .opvn config would contain all server, keys and username and password information with a few single clicks hence the elimination of having to enter credentials in manually as of the current firmware revision, sorry it was me and i didn't explain it clearly. Secondly I would like to see another VPN provider added "NordVPN". Confirm that you now understand my request. 😀

    XR500 and Vigor 130 GUI

    I did do "ifconfig brwan 192.168.100.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 but cripples everthing, lose internet, in my experiment, definitely needs an extra virtual interface, sounds like we need to pester Netgear for this.. 🤣

    NordVPN Support / .OVPN

    So, instead of uploading an .opvn file, for different locations just put the username and password of any VPN provider? Yeah be glad to see Nordvpn included.

    XR500 and Vigor 130 GUI

    If I do this I lose internet access. Basically, the Vigor 130 acts as the bog standard modem, receives no WAN IP all that good stuff, it just syncs the fibre connection from the line and that's all it's for. I am using Sky UK hence the need for the DHCP Option 61 Client Field for me to enter my username and password in the XR500 to allow me to get WAN PUBLIC IP, I have tried this and it messes up the XR500 and I lose all internet access. I am stumbled imo, if there isn't a way forward or even a way for to assign the WAN port on the XR500 to > 192.168.100.2 255.255.255.0 for me to type 192.168.100.1 to the Vigor 130 Gui then it's no problem, I will have to do it manually via a laptop to check stats. Apparently if you're not aware the 130 is basically a router but configure just a pure modem, this is Draytek for you, hence why I had to assign on my old Asus that ifconfig command, basically two routers connected but the 130 is acting as a pure modem without router capabilities. ^ first post here > https://community.netgear.com/t5/Idea-Exchange-For-Home/Allow-Modem-UI-Access-from-behind-an-NightHawk-Router-via-WAN/idi-p/1325374 Somehow I need add an additional IP route to the WAN port.

    XR500 and Vigor 130 GUI

    No, just pure modem, Vigor 130, handles the vdsl2 connection, no ddns etc, only accessible via local ip.

    XR500 and Vigor 130 GUI

    Yes, I can connect to the Vigor 130 GUI when I set my LAN ADAPTER in Windows 10 to 192.168.100.2 and GATEWAY to 192.168.100.1 - This is when it's direct. When I put my Windows 10 LAN adaptor back to DHCP put everything back to how it was I can not PING the Vigor 130 address nor access GUI through the XR500.

    XR500 and Vigor 130 GUI

    No, I have no access to it. My Current Setup: 1. Vigor 130 - EXTERNAL MODEM - Syncs To Sky Fibre 2. Vigor 130 <> XR500 - Get's Public WAN IP (Using DHCP Options) 3. XR500 (Public WAN IP/Access) - Provides Internet Access I am using the brand new Ethernet cable that came with the XR500 to rule out any connectivity issues, which there aren't any since I'm getting FULL bandwidth to ALL devices, not running QoS at the moment.
  15. Hello Community. This topic is mainly for Sky Fibre users who want to eliminate two routers, and double NAT. Sky is a UK ISP who provide fibre but also supply a crappy self OEM router which lacks anything good and their stupid DHCP Option 61 (MER) authentication system which pretty much means you can't use your own equipment on their network, so you have to use the XR500 behind DMZ blah blah and causing a double NAT issue when playing games and makes the XR500 less effective. I've made a quick PDF guide to setup the XR500 on it's own and best to my knowledge is just a rough guide on what I did to get it working without a Sky router modem combo. I ran the PDF through Virus Total for the benefit of the community, results are here: VirusTotal Results Admins, If this isn't allowed please delete. Sky And XR500 and YOU!.pdf
