    sharpz44 reacted to bobisbadat in XR500 Firmware version 2.3.2.56 released.   
    Yeah I was over on the Netgear end of things, but I also received help from several of you and tried other firmware (you actually provided them there, if I recall) and then I followed that one guy's advice and went and got a different modem to make sure it wasn't a chipset problem and that actually helped a bit.  Then basically got referred to Netgear who said they would replace it since I was in my 90 days, but it would take them like two weeks and I didn't want to be sans router for that long as the disconnection issues had lessened to usability.  Just in general I upgraded to this router excited to have something that really maximized our household of gamers and it has just been a pain and I'm hoping the new stuff addresses that.  I just really wanted a router that understood gaming network traffic and handled it well without me having to spend all this time pissing with things.  I regret not going another route (no pun intended) but I'm stubborn and hoping to see the improvements I expected when I upgraded in the first place.  I feel like I half to disable half of the router to be able to utilize our connection effectively, which is frustrating.  And don't get me wrong, your team is very communicative and helpful to the extent that they can be, and I genuinely believe some, most, or all of you are doing your best to make this work for everyone.  I understand that some issues are netgear-oriented, and some are the usual "it's not ready yet/ we can't give details"... I'm not holding any of that against you.  But if I wanted to put this much work into my networking, I would've chosen differently.  I fought tooth and nail with my ISP to make sure everything was right on their end, but once again bypassing the router and using a random used piece of junk speeds worked normally, no disconnection issues.  So wasted tech trip for customer equipment issue.  Today I factory reset, (not for the first time) updated the firmware, and spent my day seeing which features had to be on or off for consistency.  We'll see how long it lasts this time, but there have been no major firmware updates (not to imply the other updates are meaningless) since I purchased the device and that's less than ideal.

    It seems to indicate that someone is attempting to access your network so good idea to disable it and see if it continues. Do check the modem, it would be good to see if that disconnects at all or if it is purely the router/devices.

    Well this is News to me that Qos and PPPoE does not work Optimally with the XR500,think he just dropped a bomb right there,think I will turn mine off then.... roll on 2020 when hopefully this router gets the better support it was promised on numerous of occasions, can`t even get devices listed,maybe look at how Asus do it.... this router is like Battlefield 5....

    PPPoE being the most universal way of connecting to VDSL2 in the UK and many other countries, so I would have to agree. How could the devs missed that during writing Milestone 1.3 especially while the router it was based on had PPPoE working fine! (R7800.) There is no excuse for that.

     Well its 20/12/2019, lets hope 2020 brings more than one official firmware update (2.3.2.56) and a bunch of bugs that never got fixed, and that 3.0 will improve the lacklustre performance of DumaOS for many of us and include the basics like PPPoE, VLAN tagging and IPv6. In 2019 it's hard to justify a router at this price point that cant do the basics, let alone in 2020 when cheaper AX routers will be flooding the markets along with more AX clients. AC routers are going to be old news really and most companies will be updating there portfolio with AX gear.

    Thats no excuse for not being more upfront about having that capability and not giving people the option of a 'not now'  solution. Cloud updates were assumed to be for gaming updates mostly and the odd geo filter update not crashing the interface! Sounds like DumaoS 3.0 will be talking to the mothership even more, not sure how I feel about that considering what just happened. Also I hope this cloud stuff (not keen on remote servers talking to my home routers these days) is over https. There is no way a routers GUI should go down because of a hidden update the users cant block and causing the user base to have to reboot, some people have big families and this router may be in the middle of streaming files game updates, downloading critical patches for operating systems etc, its not all about gaming. This really should have been a small update people could have downloaded like the GUI language updates at their leisure over the update system via Netgear, who may have caught the fatal error before you released it (unlikely) but you never know...

    Are they really? I feel like we have heard that story for a LOOONG time now. I feel pretty convinced Netgear has moved on from this router and all we are getting at this point is smoke and mirrors. Netduma may be still invested, but what good is a new OS if we can't fix actual problems?

    also my guide is here https://forum.openwrt.org/t/sky-and-dhcp-60-61/39917/13
    For me what i did is download wireshark and install.
    run wireshark and turn off the sky router and boot back up and you should see the sky Credentials with some searching. Write this password down and save it as you need use it to produce HEX Key found here http://string-functions.com/string-hex.aspx 3 once that is done. copy that and save it.
    on my DM200 with open-wrt installed
    Log on to the web interface (default ip 192.168.1.1), you may be asked to set a password
    Navigate to the "network" tab
    Click on the edit button for the wan connection
    2.4) Make sure the protocol is set to DHCP Client (click Save and Apply if any changes are made)
    Navigate to the "Advanced Options" tab
    Add the final key you generated into the Client ID field Thats the HEX Key
    Add 6.14.1aN_UNI|PCBAFAST2504Nv1.0 to the Vendor Class field
    Click "Save and Apply"
    On the WAN Page go to physical setting and add this in the interface drop down box "dsl0.101" save and apply
    and all done i had internet.

    sharpz44 reacted to Netduma Alex in Can we get some more Device Types added to Device Manager ?   
    I actually meant it to be funny but I guess it misfired. Oops.
    Yeah that's it, Nighthawk and DumaOS are two separate things. The DumaOS app will control more than just Nighthawks, and the Nighthawk app will control more than just Pro Gaming devices.
    I don't think there will be a massive conflict. The Nighthawk app can only control the generic Netgear settings that sit behind DumaOS, whereas the DumaOS app will be able to control the DumaOS features specifically. Hopefully we'll be able to control the Nighthawk specific features as well, because otherwise you'd need two apps.

    Yes it was , I remember talking to Jack about that. Well over a year ago, in fact only a few months after the XR500 release, so I'm surprised its a "Interesting idea" to Alex. Then again maybe not so surprised as its probably not on the devs priority list...

    Personally if the HG612 works well and meets your line requirements I would stick with it,plus it`s unlocked so obviously you have acees to line stats if needed.

    are there no Broadcom "Pure" modems out there other than the HG612....?
    or what modem/router combo is best to use ? (just to use in bridge mode) . i.e. Zyxel VMG8924  ?

    What makes you you think its okay to apologise for those that whine with genuine issues? Sure you like DumaOS and the router is the best in your view maybe but not everyone agrees though. It's always best to speak for yourself, not other people on mass. We all have different views, yes sing its praises that's fine, but do that for yourself as your voice is not that of all DumaOS users probably. Also to say  "Thanks for putting up with our whining" is a little patronising I find. I cant speak for anyone else of course though

    yeah firmware check was first thing i did (latest BT one was already on there).
    checking the speed on the modem GUI was the second thing, 74 Down, 13 Up.
    I know my cabinet is a Huawei and my old modem, an Openreach HG612 (unlocked) is also Huawei chipset, I was getting about 9Mbps extra from it.
    So maybe moving to the Draytek was a bad idea after all...
    After several factory resets on the XR500, im now getting a steady 53Mbps Down and 11Mbps Up reported by the router.....  thats still 13Mbps of a drop from using the old HG612 Openreach Modem.
    Think i will just switch back to the Huawei... despite its age (performance is everything.... so my wife says ? LOL!)

    Never got rid of that message on the XR500 and its been reported enough, it was also present on the R7800 and was never fixed and to be fair I have seen it on other routers, it takes ages getting NAT type normally then gives that warning. Possibly a firewall issue maybe you could try without DoS protection although they are Netgears own additions to the firewall they cause issues like filtering ICMP on IPv6... Never had issues playing though so you should be fine. I would leave the settings as they are tbh.

    I had this issue I thinks it’s something to do with the router as the R7800 it’s built off does it too. My RAX120 does not give me that message and that’s with a mtu of 1492 and PS4 on auto. Saying that I never had issues playing with that message either.
