  7. For the most part the XR500 is a great router. THAT BEING SAID, without solid parental control capabilities, the router is just a plain waste of money for any family with kids. Manually turning on an off internet on week nights is tedious and unnecessary. At the least, NetGear sghould post a video on hour to schedule turning off an on specific IP/Mac addresses to help parents that may not be that technical. Its time for DUMAOS and Netgear to get this feature added to the router. They have been taking about it for quite some time, but for some reason it has not been a priority. NetGear DUMAOS is this a planned feature? And if so, WHEN???? View the full article
  8. Hi Guys, I Own an XR500 nighthawk router. updated with latest firmware. I've recently been having 100mbs/40 with my isp. No issues. Upgraded to the 250mbs/100, and the weird thing is isp is saying its all good and nbn are saying its all good. I run the setup with my router (as it determines speeds) and it detects the 250mbs HOWEVER- i then pull open a speedtest browser and the test starts at around 130mbs and slowly falls to approx 105mbs. I can't help thinking the router is playing up with speeds? as when i bypass the router I get 250mbs. Someone please help View the full article
  9. Hi Everyone,Excuse my lack of knowledge but I am looking for a Router to do the following and I "think" the XR500 would be suitable for my requirements.1) Throttle Bandwidth per device. So for e.g. Mobile phones I want to set a maximum upload/download 2) Set schedules when the device can use the Internet 3) I want to log all IP addresses / websites being accessed in real time or close too accessible with history. My kids are getting at an age I want to see what they are doing.Thank you for your timeRegardsBran View the full article
  10. Un grand merci a BIG DOG ainsi que netduma jack pour les explications qui m'ont ete envoyées. Ceci dit je laisse le xr500 seul car il travail mieux seul que avec le s8000 pour mon utilisation. Par contre j'ai constaté que le routeur me donne toujours les mêmes vitesses , à savoir 300 up and 300 down, même aprés 10 test mais les sites de speedtest ou testdedebit.fr j'ai toujours des resultats inferieurs alors je ne sais pas quoi choisir comme vitesse à mettre dans le routeur afin de ne pas subir les lags!! Avez vous une petite idée s'il vous plaît? View the full article

  12. When will a new update for the router. Since the last update has been already as much as 2 months. You have there that one person is working on updates is obtained. As I will not read the message then here's catch the beta version of the cute person. How much can you wait. Since the release of the router itself, it has not been possible to complete a single full-fledged update, which has been added at least something big or new. You just promise and promise. Already coming to the end of the 8th month with the launch of the router in the company, and you just make mistakes. And those can not repair. Shame and shame on you. View the full article

  14. I recently purchased the XR500 AND S8000 (bundle from Costco for price of XR500). I will try to be as specific as I can with my setup and the issues / concerns I'm experiencing. My Setup: Cable (200Mbps / 12 Mbps) > Modem (Netgear CM1000) > Router (Netgear Nighthawk Pro Gaming XR500) > Switch (Netgear Nighthawk S8000 Gaming & Streaming Switch) (HP Pro Curve Switch x2 - J9449-60001) Connections to XR500: S8000 (Ethernet Port 8) to XR500 (Ethernet Port 1) / HP Pro Curve Switch to XR500 (Ethernet Port 2) / HP Pro Curve Switch to XR500 (Ethernet Port 3) Connections to S8000: Xbox One X to S8000 (Ethernet Port 1) / PS4 Pro to S8000 (Ethernet Port 2) / Apple TV 4K to S8000 (Ethernet Port 3) XR500 Settings: UPnP On (checked) / NAT Filtering - Open XR500 Settings: Geo-Filter - Devices (Xbox One X / Xbox One S / PS4 Pro) All Set to Filtering Mode XR500 Settings: Geo-Filter - Options - Strict Mode (checked) / Auto Ping Host (checked) XR500 Settings: Geo-Filter - Map (Distance Set to 1560 miles) XR500 Settings: QoS - Anti-Bufferbloat - Options - Goodput (checked) / Disable QoS (not checked) XR500 Settings: QoS - Anti-Bufferbloat - Always / Upload (70%) / Download (70%) XR500 Settings: QoS - Bandwidth Allocation (38 devices) - Upload / Download (Xbox One X - 50% / Microsoft Xbox One S - 25% / Remaining Devices - 1%) XR500 Settings QoS - Traffic Prioritization - Dumas OS Classified Games Enabled (checked) S8000 Settings: QoS Enabled Latest Firmware Installed on XR500 (v2.3.2.22) and on S8000 (v1.7.0.6) Issue / Concern 1: I've noticed, when playing Elder Scrolls Online, that sometimes I experience noticeable lag (never noticed lag with previous router - Asus RT-AC5300) Issue / Concern 2: It seems that no matter what I do with Anti-Bufferbloat settings (On or Off) / QoS settings (On or Off) / Traffic Prioritization settings / Geo-Filter settings), my PING remains the same (between 20 and 24 using PingPlotter App). I've ran several speedtests using DSL Reports and always have achieved an 'A' for Bufferbloat. Issue / Concern 3: After reading another post regarding the XR500 and S8000, it seems QoS enabled on both the XR500 and S8000 might be a problem. I really don't want to disable QoS on the XR500, but not sure whether the S8000 or the XR500 would do a better job. Question: Do I have my configuration (XR500 / S8000) set up correctly (see connections above for details)? Should the Xbox One X / PS4 Pro be connected to the back of XR500 instead of S8000? Note: When I check the 'Port Status' on S8000, the Xbox One X (connected to Ethernet Port 1- Gaming) shows Linked Speed at 10M Full, the PS4 Pro (connected to Ethernet Port 2) shows Linked Speed at 100M Full, and the Apple TV 4K (connected to Ethernet Port 3) shows Linked Speed at 1000M Full. I'm wondering why the Xbox One X has only a Linked Speed at 10M Full. It seems that should be more (as well as PS4 Pro) since the Apple TV 4K has a Linked Speed at 1000M Full. I'm hoping I can get some help trying to figure out what is going on, as I feel something isn't right with the router and my setup. Please let me know if you need further information. If I experience any other issues, I'll be sure to post them. Thanks for taking time to reply with any troubleshooting suggestions. View the full article

  20. My Nighthawk x4 c7500 has starting broadcasting a third SSID on the 2.4ghz channel. This SSID is one letter off from the original and is preventing any devices to connect to either SSID on 2.4ghz. The 5ghz works just fine but a lot of my devices do not work on 5ghz. I have tried a factory reset and a firmware update and nothing has fixed it. Has anyone else experienced this issue? View the full article

  22. Fortnite Chasing that Victory Royale in Fortnite? Then here's some quick tips to get the best Fortnite connection possible: Minimize server lag The further a server is from your home, the slower the game will play. It’s just like real life; the further you must travel, the longer it takes to make that trip. Same for your game traffic. In your game settings: make sure you have selected your region in Fortnite. Here’s how: From the main menu of the game, select the gear icon to open settings and then again click the gear icon at the top to open game settings. Under Region, change your Matchmaking Region to the one with the lowest ping Using your Nighthawk Pro Gaming XR500 Router: Add your console or PC to the Geo-Filter Set your Geo-Filter to 'Spectating Mode' Make sure Auto-Ping Host is enabled in the Geo-Filter Map Option Set the Geo-Filter distance to the closest server near you. For reference, see the image below of Fortnite Servers. Clean up your console Making sure your hardware is capable of running Fortnite is crucial to a smooth gaming experience. When possible, have your console or PC wired up to the XR500’s ethernet ports. Console gamers: delete unneeded games/applications from your hard drive to free up space. On Xbox One if you’re experiencing occasional stuttering then clearing your local saved games can also help. Check your PC’s specs PC gamers: Keep your FPS high by ensuring your hardware meets these minimum requirements: Processor Core i5 2.8Ghz Memory 8GB Graphics Nvidia GTX 970 / AMD R9 390 or above Storage 20GB OS Windows 10 64-bit Prioritize your console or PC The last thing you want when chasing that Victory Royale is someone in your home hogging all the bandwidth with videos or other traffic and causing your game to lag. The Nighthawk Pro Gaming XR500 has the world’s best QoS to completely solve this problem. Here’s how: Set Anti-Bufferbloat to 70% for both Download and Upload and set the mode to High Priority Traffic Detected In Bandwidth Allocation give extra bandwidth to your gaming device Make sure ‘DumaOS Classified Games’ is checked in Traffic Prioritization Make sure ‘Unreal Engine’ is prioritized in Traffic Priorization Now everyone in your home can download and upload whatever they want without affecting your gaming because the XR500 is prioritizing Fortnite. Wired Controller beats a Wireless Controllers Whenever possible, try to play wired. Wireless controllers and mice and keyboards can be affected by other wireless devices around them which is why most eSports pros play wired. View the full article
  23. I bought this Netgear router yesterday. I love the NetDuma OS so far. I am coming from an ASUS AC88U which I have used for a couple of years. One question that I have is this. Every time I reboot my desktop PC it has a new IP address. Example. It started at XXX.XXX.X.4 and now it's gotten up to XXX.XX.X.32 this happens on both just a reboot of the computer and if I turn it off for any length of time. My laptop will keep the same IP on reboots, but if I turn it off for say 5 min (to let it leave the online device manager and say offline) and then turn it back on it will have a different IP. My iPhone, iPad, and Xbox One, if I turn them off and leave them off till they leave the device manager and then turn them back on they keep the same IP and do not switch to a new one like the PC or Laptop. The only reason I ask is because the IP address on all my devices when using the ASUS router never changed in the couple of years that I used that device. They don't need to be static and I'm not seeing any issues it's just different than what I'm used to so wanted to see if that's a feature or if something isn't set up right. Seems odd that only certain devices on my network are getting a different IP address on reboot of those devices. My home network is a Motorola MB8600 Modem and the XR500. The cable modem has no options to change. Thanks in advance! View the full article
  24. I've had this router for 4 months now and it works fine most of the time. Once in a while I'll notice that some LAN devices become unresponsive, when I look into the issue it turns out that they have IPs issued by my ISP's DHCP servers. Rebooting the router solves the problem. My WAN connection utilizes DHCP, but I can't figure out why local devices within the NAT would be getting IPs from an external DHCP rather than from the router all of a sudden. Anyone else run into a similar problem? View the full article
  25. Hello, New to this community! Just wondering if there is a good setup for xbox one (specifically playing Destiny 2) to reduce lag and improve performance of the router. Currently have comcast with 150mb connection, Motorola SB6141 modem, and run R6400 wired connection. Still experience lag issues. It seems that hit markers have alot of delay and have some lag issues. Is there a way to improve the performance of this router if so can someone give some guidance. I never messed with the settings on the router but would love to know ways to improve. Please let me know and thank you! I am a competitive player and do alot of player vs player so maybe I should just invest in XR500? Thanks again! View the full article
