#186977 foxtel hub doesn't work with netduma?

Posted by e38BimmerFN on A week ago

Set up a IP address reservation on the modem for R1. Then input this IP address into the modems DMZ.

#186580 Xbox WIFI issues

Try this, disable any MIMO and any smart connect features on the router, I believe should be under Advanced Settings/Wireless settings.

I would try this as well. Disable the 5Ghz radio and test to see if either console connects two the 2.4ghz radio. Then reverse the test and disable 2.4Ghz and enable 5Ghz and see.

I would temporarily disable WPA on the router. See if the consoles connect to either radio. After test, re-enable WPA2 and AES only.

Set manual channels 1, 6 or 11 on 2.4ghz and any unused channels by neighbors on 5ghz. Try 48 or 149.

Can you bring the console down stairs temporarily and connect it to the router via wired and see how it does?

You'll be fine. It's how non-managed switches work. I have several on my network.

The switch will not be reported as non managed switches don't have IP addresses. Just works as a pass thru for connected devices. So the XR will see devices thats detected thru the switch.

#185831 Mesh WiFi options

If you keep the R1 as your main host router, then I would configure the MESH system for AP mode. The main host router on the MESH system should have both router and AP mode. I would look into this.

Be sure your ISP modem is bridged as well and any wifi radios disabled on it and disable wifi on the R1 as well.


ISP modem>R1<>Mesh system in AP mode. This will be come your primary wifi system.

Referring to the R1?


An MESH configuration would need actual MESH HW.

You can add on extenders to a main host router that an help extend wifi range and coverage.

#184937 Operation Insecure

I recommend saving off a new save config to file now that you have it running just in case. Keep this file for safe keeping.

I agree, factory reset shouldn't be needed everytime, however can be used in cases where you just can't seem to get things going right.


Sorry for the late response guys. I wiped the XR500 clean to it's factory fw and re-installed the latest That seemed to work once I booted up a game of WW2.

Every firmware update from now on I'll just wipe the XR500 clean to prevent any conflicting boot errors in the config.

#184642 R1 wifi keeps dropping out!

Posted by e38BimmerFN on 28 June 2018 - 08:55 PM

One thing you can do if you still have wifi problems on the R1, disable the R1s wifi radio and install either a router configured for LAN to LAN AP mode and use it's upgraded wireless as your wifi, or install a wireless client device that would give same wifi features, and keep the R1 working as your main host router. You could even install a wireless MESH system as well. Something to consider later on.

Yes that's a given. Been running NAT Filter Open for a while now. ZERO issues with it or any problems with the router, hacks or gaming when using OPEN for my two consoles. This option is only suggested for two or more game consoles behind one router or two or more consoles playing a lot of multi player online games that check NAT settings. Single game consoles should use SECURE NAT Filter.

Only other thing you can try is to get a wireless AP installed that has more power and range than the R1 does and see if you can get better wireless signal to the remote location. This could still be problematic as well.


Might ask a friend or someone you may know that knows how to install LAN cabling. You don't need the ISP to install LAN cabling. Some mom and pop shops may have the know how as well.

#183171 XR500 Firmware Version (RELEASED)

Posted by e38BimmerFN on 07 June 2018 - 09:59 PM

Is there a reason my firmware didn't auto-update to this? I have it agreed/enabled. Just curious. I mean I'm glad it didn't now but for future updates I'd rather not have to keep checking here or on the router manually. Isn't that the point of agreeing to the "Router Auto Firmware Update"? heh

It was pulled off the servers by NG due to problems with it. Auto update should work on next release, when that arrives.
