  1. Well it seems to be all good, am still getting consistent speeds over the weekend. Additionally, I wasn't booted from Warzone all weekend since the change and my wife's stream didn't disconnect. We had been having issues with the new router (I think DHCP lease renewal) that would disconnect just long enough for a problem to occur. From what I can tell, that all vanished with the change back to the XR500. Fraser - thank you so much for the help! Greatly appreciate it, even more so during times like this where personal care takes priority. I guess for the record a DHCP lease release was the ticket, just in case anyone else runs into a similar issue. Would have thought it'd change during all the resets etc but oh well. Problem solved!
  2. ...that worked. THAT ACTUALLY WORKED. Holy shit. A DHCP lease release was all it actually needed? That's insanity. I hit 927Mbps as seen in the image. Actually tweeted it to you also I believe. Writing this on Saturday, will monitor it and stress test it a bit this weekend to see if everything remains the same but it's looking good!
  3. I'm getting the Internet from the ONT via CAT6 ethernet. There is no COAX cable in the equation other than a MoCA adapter setup for the TV box but that is entirely optional. Where would I go to release the IP? Noticed the UI is very similar to the DumaOS so it may well be in the same place. You're saying release it and then straight up switch the ONT ethernet to the XR500?
  4. I've asked Verizon but it pretty much came down to them saying I'd need to speak to Netgear. Everything is working at their end and the R700P is running with zero issues. I don't think the ONT is using anything like PPPoE, VLAN or DHCP 60. I could double check with them though. I will double check the dynamic/static internet setup and report back.
  5. Update: Changed primary DNS to and secondary DNS to and found no change in speeds. Power cycled the ONT and retest (same DNS as before) and although a slight increase, nothing substantial. Then retested with automatic ISP DNS and again saw some speed increase but nothing major. This pretty much just matched the slight boost when ONT was reset but still nowhere near expected speeds.
  6. Internet went out one night, thought nothing more and Verizon ended up emailing me that there had been an outage and forwarded the expected resolution time. By that point I was already back online. Spoke to Verizon since I originally thought it was them, they reset my ONT 3 times, checked the line speed etc. Resetting brought upload up a bit, think 70 was the highest but nothing substantial. Other than that outage I never had any issue. I mean I've had outages before and after it gets resolved and the Internet comes back there has never been an issue. Don't recall there being any interface on the ONT to connect to. Only thing I think it has is a reset button (tried 3-4 times) and the power. Could maybe try a power cycle of the ONT. I'll change the DNS and report back.
  7. UPDATE: Okay so some progress was made. Sorry for the delayed efforts on my part, had 3 birthdays this past week! You were right, I ran setup wizard and it took a couple mins but it detected the connection from the R700P. It popped up that it changed the router IP to avoid conflict (set it to 10.0.....) so maybe that was the issue prior. After that I didn't proceed with any more of the setup and ran speed test. The router upload was fine again, back to 700+ which is normally what I get via speedtest. I instantly swapped the connection to the CAT6 ONT and the issue instantly returned. Hopefully this can help narrow down the issue because it doesn't seem to be a hardware concern now. I did notice that the XR500 was randomly using set DNS servers (the "use these DNS servers option") and I had never selected that. I reverted to obtain from ISP, rebooted but still no improvement. So maybe it's a setting issue? I'm honestly not sure. The R700P is using the same internet setup settings (Dynamic ISP, automatically obtain DNS etc).
  8. Okay sounds good, will update you once I've tried it. For the record, CAT6 ONT is going to the R700P Internet port, then I'm running a CAT6 from one of the R700P ports to the Internet port of the XR500. From there, CAT6 from XR500 port to the PC.
  9. I'm not using PPPoE, DHCP 60/61 or VLAN. Rebooted after connecting them but still no signal.
  10. UPDATE: Tried to connect the R700P and XR500 together but seemed to run into issues, the XR500 simply wasn't receiving a connection. I connected from the R700P port to the Internet port on the XR500. I'm too experienced with bridging etc so I may have simply made a mistake. Re-installed the latest firmware and that didn't do anything. Ping and download were fine but upload didn't get above 7Mbps. Really not sure what is suddenly causing this issue, it literally occurred out of nowhere and I really don't have the funds to buy another 😕
  11. Not 100% on what I'm using, what would be the best way to check? The R700P setup was pretty much identical honestly, I didn't do anything different and it just worked right out of the box. I will put the XR500 between them tonight and see what results I get. I may also try going back to a previous firmware version and seeing if that fixes anything.
  12. Ran multiple tests and did all suggestions - upload was still roughly 10Mbps. Router was already full duplex/1000 and I adjusted the QoS speed figured to 1000, tested with Qos set to Never, then with disabled Good Put and then disabled entirely. Used R700P MAC and no change, this was tested with QoS still disabled To answer your question - yes, all devices are suffering from this lack of upload speed. It was originally discovered on the wife's desktop (wired, CAT 6 via a switch) and replicated on my own wired desktop. Mobile phone also showed similar speeds while running on 5GHz. It's almost like the router is simply unable to filter the speeds to the respective devices. Last speed test gave me 9ms ping, 413Mbps down and 7Mbps upload. Switched back to R700P - same cables and devices - hit 700+ Mbps instantly.
  13. I'll definitely try that tonight - just can't right now. How exactly would I go about that? I could probably figure it out but just wanna make sure I'm not gonna screw up a step You just read the MAC of the router and then hard type in into the DumaOS? Update - granted this is on the current functioning monitor but the Speed/Duplex of the realtek Family monitor was set as Auto Negotiation. Not sure if that is good or not. If that isn't what you were referring to with the device manager suggestion the let me know.
  14. I set it to 980/880 which is the paid for speed, I'll try 1000/1000 tonight but people are on right now and I can't disconnect the current router. When factory resetting, the setup wizard gave me something like 700down and 16 up. I edited to the above mentioned figures but no change.
  15. I manually entered the expected speeds when the incorrect values were estimated. I think QoS is completely disabled right now.
