    Problems logging into forum

    Hi. I have deleted your other post per your request! Have you cleared your browser cache as that can bugger up password recognition on odd occasions? If it persists please let us know and it will be a job for a forum administrator. BD
  3. Then, the question is............................................Does this happen to those with PPPoE connection types?
  4. Trying to figure out why some people are getting disconnects. I have my xr500 running on a separate notwork to my main network and it has been running fine for weeks untouched. Not sure it is a firmware issue or not but it should be happening to a lot of users if it was i imagine........I always do a factory reset whenever I install new firmware on a router whatever the manufacturer!

    XR 500 wired Disconnections

    does it do this with just the asus you said? Have you checked your dsl log under system tab to see if it is resyncing with your isp network to rule out a line fault? It will tell you how long your connection has been active for! The dsl active uptime is different from your router up time. EXAMPLE >>>>>>>>> you loose connection again make a note of the exact time if it occurs while you are there. Then, go to your system log in asus and go to dsl and let's say it happend 1hr 42 mins ago if you have a dsl line issue your dsl log should say uptime 1hr 42 mins which will mean you lost isp connection and is probably a line fault or maybe a faulty asus dsl ac68u or even it is not quite configured correctly for your isp causing connection drops and resyncing! I personally think you have a line fault as I also just checked and you had a netgear modem also which it did it too. If i am correct in my thinking your dsl uptime log will prove it. Therefore it is an issue for your isp/phone company to fix for you. Sorry for late response but I have been in meetings all afternoon here in the UK.

    XR 500 wired Disconnections

    agh ok, sweet, I have that model also. Make sure you have UPnP disabled on the asus if you use it and have it enabled on the XR500. Also disable "always on" setting for the xbox. What country are you in and your isp please?

    XR 500 wired Disconnections

    When you say "Asus" is that a router or a modem/router and what model. is "everything" connected and running through the XR500 or do you have devices running through your asus also.

    1 Doulbe check if you can that your dsl cable (that runs from your socket to your modem (rj11 connectors on each end) is a shielded cable also. There are sellers out there that sell cat6 cables with rj11 on either end. Just do your homework and ditch the shitty cable that comes with your modem/router. This is a cable that many DSL users overlook!

    VPN Users Required

    It may be a good idea to release R1OS and then test the hybrid VPN as there's already rumblings of this being seen as a further setback in the release. Just saying as I am starting to see 1 or 2 posts starting to emerge!
  10. HAHAHA!!!! All I know is that I have beta tested it and it is running great, much better than the original beta test. Atleast now you guys know it is being intensely worked on and tested. I would love to post screenshots but signing my NDA does not permit this I'm afraid! As for actual release time that is down to the powers that be, not us lowly testers! But I hope it is very very soon!
  11. It is in the final beta testing stage and will be released shortly, you can believe me or not, the choice is yours. You shall see soon enough.

    UK ISP ratings for August 2018

    I agree entirely. Just thought it would help some members out there. And a vast majority of people use wifi as their connection. Surveys can be taken with a pinch of salt and I no doubt can find another survey with polar opposite results. But, virginmedia should be at the bottom of any survey!
  14. Hi all. There have been several posts/comments regarding a good isp. Therefore I have decided to add the full official list of the top rated ISP's published by ThinkBroadband for the UK for August 2018. I will post ratings once a month to help UK members decide on a good choice ISP. I hope someone will find this helpful.
