  1. Apex will be in the next release (v3.0), but for now that workaround will work!
  2. That’s really strange. Could you factory reset the router please. Should behave as normal after that. https://kb.netgear.com/000053098/How-do-I-perform-a-factory-reset-on-my-Nighthawk-Pro-Gaming-router
  3. Hi Danny - this is a Netgear feature so I’m not as sure about this area. Did it work in .20? Did you upgrade to .24 to fix another issue or just in general? Because if just general you could downgrade back to the previous firmware for now as .24 contained a hotfix for Nintendo devices that were breaking the Device Manager plus some updates from Netgear. If these were not bothering you then a downgrade should be fine.
  4. Hi there - everything you’ve tried is very logical. The fact it’s breaking still post downgrade and factory reset unfortunately suggests this is a hardware issue. You should still be under warranty if you’re within 1 year. I recommend you contact Netgear for a replacement and apologies we can’t be more help - you’ve already tried everything I can think of suggesting.
  5. Just to clarify - this contains some hotfixes needed for the XR700 so install this if you would like to. The big 3.0 update will be coming for the XR700 soon
  6. This is on the Netgear side of things so hard for us to know what to do here, but will try a few suggestions: 1. Factory reset 2. Try downgrading back to an older firmware, perhaps the one that ends in .32 3. Enable the guest WiFi and connect to the 5GHz on there instead 4. Toggle smart connect back on and see if that works? Let us know how you get on
  7. It’s coming very soon - keep your 👀 out for a beta announcement.
  8. How much bandwidth have you allocated to each of them? If you like, you could set each to something like 45% of your total bandwidth then disable the share excess option whilst the downloads happen. This will force an even amount. Put share excess back on afterwards though because failing to do so will slow your connection down
  9. Apologies but as this is not the intended use for the router we will not be able to provide official support on this
  10. This is a great response. I'd really recommend undoing that list and going back to using DumaOS classified games as it will detect all UDP traffic on any consoles connected to the router (or PC's with a console device type e.g. Playstation). Thanks for the tick rate issue. A little odd that one, we'll look into it.
  11. Yes you can enable UPNP too, it shouldn't cause any problems. Try that and see if you have an Open NAT afterwards. Also I'm not sure if this has been said by Fraser yet, but have you put your modem into Bridge mode? Or made sure all ports are forwarded to your router? Follow this guide please: If you still don’t have an open NAT even though all the required ports have been forwarded, you may need to use DMZ on your ISP Modem or on your DumaOS powered router. First check if the Modem/Router has Modem or Bridge Mode as this is preferable over DMZ mode. To put your DumaOS powered router into the DMZ of your ISP Modem, first navigate to System Information. On the Internet Status panel, highlight the number next to ‘WAN IP Address’ and copy it. Next, head to the interface of your ISP Modem and go to the Security / Firewall Settings. You should see a box labelled ‘DMZ IP Address’. Paste the WAN IP Address into this box and make sure DMZ is enabled. You have now successfully put your router into DMZ mode.
  12. Tricky one for us to help with this as it's hardware related, so more a question for NETGEAR than ourselves but we will try to help. What happens when you remove the XR500 from the equation? My gut feeling is it may be slow due to the Wireless Bridge mode as the default WiFi speeds are usually outstanding.
  13. Do you by any chance own a Nintendo Switch? Another poster has this problem and he thinks it may be the cause? If you do, could you try connecting the Switch and then quickly go to Device Manager. From there, change the Nintendo Switch Device Type to a PlayStation or Xbox. This won't negatively affect your experience and may solve your problem.
  14. Ok that is very interesting, thank you. We will try and reproduce this error ourselves. In the meantime, are you able to connect the Switch to the router and then access the Device Manager? If so, please set the device type to an Xbox or Playstation. This won't negatively affect your experience and may solve the problem
  15. Locking this thread as it has degenerated into an e-argument. OP - please create a new thread if you require any further support.
