    This problem has since been solved, see this article for information: https://kb.netgear.com/000061261/Google-Chrome-77-is-blocking-access-to-NETGEAR-login-pages-what-do-I-do --- On the latest version of Chrome (77.0.3865.75) we have identified an issue where users may have trouble logging into their Netgear Nighthawk Pro Gaming router. This affects the XR300, XR450, XR500 and XR700, it does not affect users of the Netduma R1. Instead of asking for a username and password as normal, the router will instead direct you straight to the Password Recovery page. We are aware of this issue and all relevant parties have been notified, there will be a fix as soon as possible. -- For the time being, we recommend that you manage your router using a different browser. We have confirmed that the issue does not affect Firefox or Edge. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

    xr500 + Dumaos pour être dans le futur?

    Hello 👍🏻 Désolé d'avance pour le pavé 😅 Je suis d'accord avec toi sur le fait que quand ça prend, ça prend vraiment. Après, ce qui est frustrant pour moi, c'est que sur une session de 3 ou 4h de jeu, je vais passer 1h au moins à tenter de trouver "the" réglage. Une fois que je l'ai, je prends vraiment du plaisir, je continue de jouer sans voir passer le temps, quitte à lutter au boulot le matin suivant. Et plus tard, quand je relance le jeu, motivé de rejouer comme jamais vu comment ça prenait la dernière fois.. bien au bout de 5 parties, je déchante.. shoot 1st, die 1st, en veux tu en voilà, j'dois mettre 15 balles.. bref, je relance des games en me disant que les serveurs ne sont pas bons.. et ça finit que je dois retourner sur le xr500 pour retrouver des réglages (j'en avais parlé avec Cécé et il avait le même ressenti que moi, il m'a accordé une soirée pour me filer des astuces mais rien n'y a fait). À la limite, là où ça prenait bien pendant 2-3 jours, c'est avec la dernière mise à jour où j'ai pu me passer de la box orange.. mais.. ça me faisait buguer la télé et j'étais à la limite du carton rouge par Madame 😂 Alors comme a dit Fraser dans un topic, une fois qu'on en a un de bon, il faut regarder sur une semaine pour voir le nombre de fois où ça aurait bien pris, mais la différence est tellement énorme entre les fois où ça prend et les autres où ça ne pas du tout que je suis obligé de rechercher de nouveaux réglages tellement ça me frustre (surtout quand je regarde les ricains genre Teepee, Dougisraw).. j'ai pas leur shoot, mais quand je vois ce qu'ils arrivent à mettre et moi ce que je dois mettre.. Je vais encore me répéter mais quand j'ai eu le R1 sur Advanced Warfare et que Chive m'avait tout régler, je n'ai plus eu à y toucher jusqu'à ce que je déménage. Je suis conscient que les techniciens font un gros taf pour nous simplifier le travail et ont beaucoup de boulot surtout ; mais j'ai des petits soucis avec dumaOs (la TV qui ne fonctionne pas, l'upnp qui ouvre des ports alors que je le désactive entre autres) et mis à part de meilleur débit Wi-Fi, je ne vois pas de réels bénéfices par rapport à mon R1. J suis pressé de ne plus lire que DumaOs est en bêta et surtout de voir le topic sur les futures nouveautés 👍🏻

    People need to realize that the ultimate owner of the XR series IS NetGear. If you want to keep complaining and nagging, then you should be discussing this over on the NetGear forums and or filing support tickets. NetDuma is only the 3rd Party or Co-Developer for a portion of the FW that is developed and marketed BY NetGear. NetGear holds all the plans, policy's and release dates of when actual FW updates that go to public. It's up to NetGear and NetDuma to work together in getting code fixed based on which side of the code needs fixing. If there is problems with the NetDuma portion, then NetDuma needs to get this corrected then handed back to NetGear. If there are problems on the NetGear side of the fence, then NetDuma has nothing to do with it and NetGear needs to make the corrections. However NetGear needs to know what all the problems are first and foremost. There's a long processing and development and in house testing that needs to be done. So this can take a long time, several months. So FW just cant' be released willy nilly based on users complaints and nagging. If there are legitimate complaints, users need to post about these in the NetGear forums as well as NetDuma and troubleshooting should be performed to narrow down where the real problem is and also might find out which side of the fence it resides. I most cases, this will be NetGear and they need to see and review ALL information to determine who needs to take corrective actions. IMO, most of you people are barking up the wrong tree. If you want to voice your opinions and complaints, you need to field them with NetGear first. They hold the entire responsibility of the XR series. It's there product. If this was a NetDuma R series router, then you would be in the right right tree. Please give NetDuma a break on this. They can only do so much and say so much. There are reasons why the public gets limited information about FW updates and product releases. This is business and how router business is ran. Be patient and show some understanding.

    Need Help With XR500

    I gotcha man.......go to “firewall” tab, then you’ll see “IP Passthrough”. Click that & choose device (xr500 should show up). Select that and select “fixed” on the other drop down. It’s pretty much that simple. There’s only IP Passthrough not Bridge mode. Restart your device under “device” tab, then your console. Should see “open” NAT as well. Make sure to turn your WiFi off on the gateway as well, assuming you’re using the WiFi from xr500. All port forwarding done through the xr500 as well.....don’t do any funky things to the Gateway, just leave that as is......remember, it’s just passing your IP through it. All control is at xr500.

    I realize this update is quite small, but the changelog isn't exhaustive, and we do have big updates on the way. Keep an eye out next week because we're planning a blog post that will reveal some exciting information about our plans for the next milestone.

    DHCP Server alternative

    Just a follow up for anyone interested. I set up another router on my network behind the XR500. The second router is connected to the network via it's LAN port. Connecting through the WAN caused issues. So my setup now is modem > XR500(WAN), XR500(LAN) > ASUS(LAN). Disabled the DHCP on the XR500 and set it up on the 2nd router. Everything SEEMS to be working well at the moment. Geofilter still detects any console and appears to be working fine. QoS is harder to figure out but it looks like its working fine. The only issue I have found is that the XR500 can no longer resolve NEW device names. If the device was discovered by the XR500 then it retains its details. However all new devices are added as 'Unnamed Device'. Looks pretty good so far, so now if I have to reset my XR500 my IP reservations will not be lost

    I like the format here and the way the Community works together. It’s a lot better than Netgear support and I’ve the Arlo system and to be honest their forum although now a separate company to Netgear is not a patch to this forum. i don’t know another company that helps as much as Netduma, it’s almost 24/7 and here I feel you get a more personal one to one. It’s also friendly and everyone tries to help where they can. Long may it last.

    NETGEAR has released firmware fixes or hotfixes for KCodes NetUSB unauthenticated remote kernel information disclosure and arbitrary memory read security vulnerabilities on the following product models: XR500 running firmware versions prior to v2.3.2.56 XR700 running firmware versions prior to v1.0.1.18_BETA D6000 running firmware versions prior to v1.0.0.78 D6400 running firmware versions prior to v1.0.0.88 D7800 running firmware versions prior to v1.0.1.56 DC112A running firmware versions prior to v1.0.0.44 EX6200 running firmware versions prior to v1.0.3.90 EX6200v2 running firmware versions prior to v1.0.1.78 EX8000 running firmware versions prior to v1.0.1.202 R6250 running firmware versions prior to v1.0.4.38_BETA R6400 running firmware versions prior to v1.0.1.50 R7300DST running firmware versions prior to v1.0.0.74_BETA R7500v2 running firmware versions prior to v1.0.3.41_BETA R7800 running firmware versions prior to v1.0.2.63_BETA R7900 running firmware versions prior to R8000 running firmware versions prior to R8900 running firmware versions prior to v1.0.4.36_BETA R9000 running firmware versions prior to v1.0.4.36_BETA WNDR4300v2 running firmware versions prior to v1.0.0.60_BETA WNDR4500v3 running firmware versions prior to v1.0.0.60_BETA The firmware versions that end in “_BETA” are security hotfixes. Security hotfixes are beta firmware created outside of normal development and testing processes. While the hotfixes do fix the security vulnerabilities identified above, they could negatively affect the regular operation of your device. Though our pre-deployment testing process did not indicate that these hotfixes would impact device operability, we always encourage our users to monitor their device closely after installing the firmware hotfix. NETGEAR strongly recommends that you download the latest firmware fixes or hotfixes for these product models as soon as possible. CVSS v3 Rating: High CVSS v3 Score: 8.8 Vector: CVSS:3.0/AV:A/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H * I would suggest not running older firmware on XR routers unless its just for testing purposes and that you update to version or to be safe

    Does it include bug fixes for DumaOS in between milestone launches? Because all the new features in the world wont help if you don't patch the bugs that exist after updates, like the bugs that never got patched in milestone 1.3 and were not patched in the last update for some unknown reason, I mean Netduma did have 8 months to fix these. There has to be a change of direction in patching DumaOS bugs, there are still major bugs from December 2018, which result in people having to turn off QoS like the VLAN tagging bug for instance. These bugs are still causing people issues 8 months into Milestone 1.3 and that's after that's a recent update too. No new feature set in Milestone 1.4 will fix what is pretty much a non existent patching cycle for bugs in DumaOS. I really hope you have thought and worked on this aspect of DumaOS's life cycle in tandem with Netgear, otherwise nothing has really changed no matter what you add feature wise. Maybe you need to slow down creating new feature's and concentrate on fixing the broken ones first?

    Issue : XR500 & Philips Hue bridge

    I have a hue hub and I often have problems with it after I have rebooted my XR500. The only thing I have found to restore the connection is to unplug the hue hub for a minute and let it reconnect. Just keep an eye on the lights on the hub. It seems to have some issues with DHCP if it is left on through a router reboot.

    VPN recommendations?

    Be aware of 'Virtual servers', example a VPN provider would say they have a server in example Vienna. But the actual server would be located in New York and you would only get the IP address for Vienna. these would naturally result in miserable pings

    Reputation is a big concern for us which is why we don't often make promises that we're not 100% certain we can keep.

    si claro, puedes actualizar en cualquier momento tu R1, todos son compatibles con el OS DumaOS, es mas si en algun momento no te gusta o te parece peor(cosa que dudo), siempre puedes volver a tu firmware origial que estas ahora. Para poder actualizar dirijase a este enlace y complete el formulario que le aparece, una vez que lo haya hecho, el equipo de Netduma le proporcionara la forma de actualizarlo: https://netduma.com/r1-dumaos/ Estoy seguro que DumaOs le va a gustar, como lo dije es bastante mas facil e intuitivo de manejar, ademas de contener mejoras respecto al Firmware original

    [HOWTO] Sky Fibre And You

    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

    Device Manager Workaround(s)

    DEVICE MANAGER DEVICES THAT ARE IN THE OFFLINE BRANCH, BUT ARE ONLINE AND HAVE AN ACTIVE IP (when clicked on) AND SHOULD BE ON THE LAN BRANCH: Another warning .. mess it up, a factory reset is in your future. Device Manager uses an SQLITE database to store the device names, type, etc. First, identify the device in the device manager tree that is stuck on the offline branch (but actually online) and then find it in the device manager database: [email protected]:/# cd /dumaos/apps/system/com.netdumasoftware.devicemanager/data [email protected]:/# sqlite3 sqlite> .open database.db sqlite> .header on sqlite> .tables device interface ndtech_config sqlite> select * from interface; /*list all your devices in interface table, device table seems to have user custom names of devices*/ mac|devid|dhost|gtype|ghost|wifi|pinned|atype ...device ...device ...device XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX|209|LGWEBOSTV|TV|TV|1|0| XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX|210|GALAXY-S10|Computer|unnamed device|0|0|Phone XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX|211|GALAXY-S10|Computer|unnamed device|1|0|Phone ...device ...device --COMMENT: find the offending device. the device (w/devid |211|) is the device that is currently stuck offline in Device Manager Tree (but it's actually online via hardwired AP and has an active IP) wifi is set to '1' when device was on XR500's wifi, but moved to AP wifi (AP is on LAN) so change it to '0' sqlite> UPDATE interface SET wifi = '0' where devid like '211'; sqlite> select * from interface where devid like '211'; /*just checking update was success*/ mac|devid|dhost|gtype|ghost|wifi|pinned|atype XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX|211|GALAXY-S10|Computer|unnamed device|0|0|Phone --COMMENT: So device was manually moved to LAN in device manager database, devicemanager.database update was processed and shown in log, device jumps immediately in Device Manager Tree to LAN/Online branch. sqlite> .exit [email protected]:/# --COMMENT: offending device is now fixed until next error in duma script/netgear occurs (ex. device moves to different AP, or XR500 wifi0,1 and then back to AP and device drops to offline, but wifi field is not updated correctly in database.db) finding that will be fun. I use my extenders in AP mode, so usually this happens to devices that joined the XR500's wifi and then at some point shifted to the AP wifi. One of the duma scripts is not updating device manager database in this scenario, or tracking of it gets lost. I'm not sure if it would help with extenders in actual extender mode - it's worth a shot. I thought about fixing the scripts but it would mean de-compiling the duma lua scripts, finding the statement not updating the statuses, recompile, more testing, etc. but the de-compiled script may not be complete, so not worth it. I've spent too much time tinkering today, maybe some other day, unless you guys fix it and spare my Device Manager OCD. Now for QOS .... ahh QOS, my friend, you need some firewall work.. maybe another day ...

    Question: Backups

    Massive +1 for DHCP reservations. This is the main reason I am reluctant to perform a factory reset on my Xr500. Alternatively a better method of inputting them would be very welcome. Maybe some sort of csv import or similar may solve the problem also. Or as progprog said, backup the reservation table to a cloud service. Dropbox, onedrive, google drive. Any option that would save the painful manual reentering of the devices would make me very happy! To be honest the whole reservation feature needs some work. Lines and radar buttons aren't clearly lined up and not all devices are shown in the list so you have to resort to manually inputting MAC addresses. This is the part of the process that currently takes so much time because I cannot connect all devices until the reservations are in place.

    I got a weird minor issue

    Well so many people have to connect to one place for a game of Blackout that there probably aren't enough games starting at once to give you too much of a choice of which one you get put into. The real question I guess is why the microlag is happening for you and not for your son.

    Using game servers to ping isn't too helpful as they can fluctuate wildly. It's better to use local/country specific sites that are more stable to provide a better idea of what your connection is like. Also the graph at the bottom would be very helpful to see.

    Question: Backups

    Of course the basic setting like WAN information if it is static but for me the DHCP table. I have some reservations and it would be nice not having to write the mac address in again after a reset. I don't have a port forwarding rules but I image that other people would like that also.

    Never owned a XR500. I did demo one when they first came out. Sent it back after I was done testing it out. I saw that Costco offered the 450 for $200 at the time so I picked that one up. Same HW as the 500 accept for the 2.4Ghz radio connection rates are different is all. I've had the 450 since summer of 2017. Zero issues with it. 😁

    yeah, it's a good router with qos off for me - it's doing what a router does and it stays up - and routes, so I really don't think it's the kernel, but something is not working as well as it should when qos is enabled. it could very well be effecting other modules because i don't use geofilter or any of that for quite a while. i spent a lot of time trying to track it down in .40, watching conntrack and opening connections to see what its doing - certain apps/services that open connections that get closed with qos on work just fine with the qos off. It still tries to use the marks its made but it (NOP) them so no operation. They are ignored. I really like the analytic of qos with the breakdowns of what the traffic is - gaming, web, social media, etc. but I can't use it :( I don't really need qos or the bandwidth shaping because my connection is fast but without it I lose that analytic functionality. as for apps or services that are effected by this.. it works like this.. application goes out to an internet server somewhere, so a connection is marked and tracked in the kernel, source destination, etc..(nat /netfilter) so when traffic comes back into local network its marked as allowed (firewall) and knows the proper destination (internal ip). each connection gets its own entry (there are hundreds being created all the time and closed as they are no longer needed more so the larger your network is) and each connection has a countdown timer of life 5, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, even less.. whatever. but when qos is on some information gets lost, or incorrectly added/marked so the kernel is thinking "what is this ACK from loc2net or net2loc" and it may close it in a cleanup/housekeeping or try to close it because it thinks its a security issue like an unauthorized incoming connection from the outside world to the internal network. some devices like business vpn cause this, maybe some games,don't know .. some of those iot devices that need to reach out to aws and have a connection come back from aws, etc. i see the connections opened, they appear marked correctly, but then its like one direction either net2loc to loc2net (loc=local network, net=internet) it does not identify one as an allowable connection and it just chops it when qos is on... causing things to not maintain an active connection (one sided, internet server no longer hears an ACK from the internal device). hard to explain .. i am no conntrack guru but i know what its doing and i can see which connection should be allowed, but no idea why it is deemed done/finished (to be closed), or security risk (chopped).. but whatever qos is doing or some other module is making the kernel just think its not a kosher connection, then click. vpn will disconnect, remote desktop over vpn will disconnect, loss of connection to outgoing server, etc. (security camera may not work, or claim its not reachable from the internet, etc) it's a certain type of back and forth _SYN,ACK that picks up some misleading data via qos. i get the feeling that some netgear tracking, or netgear legacy kernal code may still be running somewhere and when qos is activated it just doesn't gel well. i'm not so sure they can replicate it, so it may never be squashed? as for the device manager thing, not really sure if that's a netgear issue or duma issue, or maybe when they combine it comes out. I do know then if you try to telnet to an ip that is listed on device manager that is shown as online (and it is offline) you will get a No route to host error (from the router shell), and then it will drop off the online list (ip will appear in arp table as 0x0). some devices that are offline (if you click them) will show an ip address attached to them.. and they may be actually online (but sometimes they could be offline, but the ip is sticking in device manager) a telnet will clear the ip after a few seconds then you can delete the device (like in a situation where it says 'error: cannot delete device, because it is online' -- but the device is NOT online) right after you get the No route to host, its clear and can be deleted from device manager. i know a reboot fixes these things, but in time they return -- besides you know i am a no reboot guy.. i've had routers up for years in some cases, and still performing like champs maybe have some special script running on the router that sends ARPING (use --settings to limit to 1 second wait time, exit after 1 reply) to each ip .2-.254 so in 254 seconds or so device manager will clear itself (at least more then it does right now, but probably not 100%). only suggesting arping because its quick to come back if there is no response.. telnet sometimes takes 3-4 seconds before it reports No route to host. maybe there's something better to use? some custom script or small app needs to be written if bug can't be found - but its a really crappy workaround, need to figure out what is causing it. duma has many scripts running to watch devices with many different methods that run every X seconds (arpwatch, ipneigh, wlan stainfo whatever) but for some reason one of the tables isn't being updated properly - when the kernel itself actually tries to reach out to that ip then it knows No route to host. . when devices shift from the internal router wifi (ath0,1) to an AP wifi (wired AP) (with the same name) it will move from the 2.4ghz or 5ghz tree into the offline section (but its still online) and lan/wan qos update has been applied - sometimes it moves to the LAN/online (like it should) but then sometimes it decides to go to the offline branch (even tho its online) no rhyme or reason. device manager also doesn't like SSID's with a '\' in them. give that a try it willl turn it into \\\ in device manager, but netgear setup does not. that probably has to do with their whole config get and config set database implementation, i went through all that and saw that its limited in storage length for fields, so they had to spread out a ton of device settings over many entries, ugg. i know if a dev reads this they will know what i mean. ps. netgear stores the SSID with a \ in one config setting and with \\\ in another -- its a easy fix but low priority I guess, just change which setting field its pulling SSID name to the correct one in device manager script. probably some weird fix they did to make it show right, or a patch in the www html unfortunately a lot of the netgear base code original creators are no longer available to comment and the firmware has been shipped off to be updated in taiwan as i understand it -- they are good but i don't think they are making any major fixes or any kind of deep down work like this -- just bandaid and move on. it's the same base code on all of the routers it seems, theres orbi stuff on the xr, etc. i wonder if the new AX are also using it? probably. it's hard to maintain so many routers i know but they are all using some version of this base hodgepodge and tweaking it for each new hardware. i thought all the time they were taking (8) months they were really re-doing it all from the bottom up, but it wasn't the case - its late and im rambling, hope you guys figure it out. or a workaround ..and after you do, let me know as i'm interested in what it turned out to be...

    New firmware update

    Something similar was happening to me on .40. It quit once I downgraded to initial release, let it update back to .40, and did clean factory reset. I've learned that doing a factory reset then downgrading to original FW and letting it update back does wonders.

    I just went to the netgear community through the router (online support) and found the .40 downgrade and put it back....ever since I went back to the .40 I haven't been booted playing COD online and that was yesterday afternoon when I went back.

    XR500 PS4

    Je crois que le problème n'est pas lié au XR500 mais plutôt à celui du FAI, j'ai l'impression d'une saturation sur certains jeux reste à confirmer comme même. Oui pour le VPN je suis d'accord car il empreinte pas la même route et le chemin est plus long donc sa crée des ralentissements. Par contre vous m'avez répondu sur un autre topic, pour le VPN ils serait bien de préciser que si ont ajoute une console de jeu que si c'est gris la console reçois tout le trafic automatique car j'ai chercher pendant plusieurs jours pourquoi la console était grisé et un PC non grisé. Car je pense que plus d'une personnes va chercher se problème pour rien en faite, ils faudrait même créé un tuto et l'épingler sur le forum pour que les gens comprenne bien merci !

    I Hear you Buddy On November the 14th 2018 I posted a suggestion similar about the way bugs are addressed it never saw the light of day link https://forum.netduma.com/topic/27042-known-issues-and-workarounds-request/?tab=comments#comment-198363 On November the 23rd 2018 I also posted a posted a poll in the support section to help Netduma and ourselves understand the numbers of people having the same problems to see if there was a way we could certain things focused on I know it wouldn't of been exact but it would have been better than nothing, Sadly it was quickly moved from the support section to the off topic section which to me made it irrelevant so no-one really got to see or take part which was frustrating link https://forum.netduma.com/topic/27233-duma-os-current-issues-poll/?tab=comments#comment-20022 And here we are such a long time has gone by the same problems remain I agree there must be a better way forward even if it is just walking away and binning my product but Its hard to really give up on something you want to believe in

    Killhippie you're the one trying to pick holes in my comments in this thread I'm not sure why but on numerous occasions I'm having to explain myself to you and and I shouldn't have to. I paid for this router with my own cash and I expected the features on it to work as advertised and since day one of my purchase, which was just after the release date I have been sat waiting patiently for them problems to be fixed and still to this day we still have the same problems with no end in sight its absurd. Sorry if I offended anyone in this thread/website it is not my intention Im just feeling a bit fed up of the whole thing its gone on far to long

    It’s a netgear router that runs DumaOS as well, netgear update the router as it’s their hardware. It needs updates from netgear to patch security holes and to update drivers which netduma can’t do with DumaOS on this router as it’s not their hardware. Also it was a turn of phrase too, because there were things that needed fixing in the netgear side of it while netduma work on milestone 1.4
