I recently bought an XR500 and after following the community for a few weeks, I see that hybrid VPN is still waiting to be greenlit by Netgear.

 

Do you have an ETA on the hybrid VPN feature, or at least a beta version that is planned to be released?

 

If so, how can users partake in a beta (e.g. replying to a forum post)?

Hey, welcome to the forum!

 

We're waiting for them to complete their testing on the feature then we can release it for those that want it prior to official release. No timeline on this currently.

I really need the new VPN feature on my router, dealing with a lot of packet loss in my current setup that only a VPN can fix. HMA is abysmal in terms of quality, I know you guys said it would be released in the next firmware update back in Feb, but it's been 3 updates later and no option still... :( please

Just a thought...if the firmware has been developed and just going through QA testing, make it available as a beta firmware.  Beta firmware/software is fairly common nowadays.

Really good idea  - if we can share it for beta we will do it as soon as we can!

So the hybrid VPN feature that's been promised as coming soon for 7-8 months still isn't available yet? Not even as a beta? Is only one person working on this part time or something? Even after all these months I tend to think it should be available by now.

It's done on our end, we're waiting for NETGEAR SQA team to finish testing so we can provide it to people pre release
