    Dilly Dilly got a reaction from TeCNeEk in New XR500 owner needs big time HELP!   
    I have a similar setup with a Xfinity gateway in bridge mode connected to the XR500 with 600 Mbps D/L speed, and have no trouble getting full advertised speeds with low ping.  Have you tried a new Ethernet cable between your modem and router? Or have you tried running custom DNS servers on the router?  I am running with OpenDNS servers for the filtering ability that it provides.  Good luck.

    I know it is up to Netgear, but do you expect a XR500 bug fix firmware release prior to the release of the DumaOS 3.0 update?

    Delays seem to be the one thing we can guarantee will happen it seems. I know this stuff happens but surely this was something that really didn't need any delays and should have been gotten in front of ready to be posted, otherwise it's just another case of rinse and repeat.

    I agree.  It seems that their road map with this router has hit a road block.

    Disappointing that they do not have a beta firmware program.  The hardware works well for me, but the firmware does have its issues.  I have also disabled QOS and the Device Manager is not very useful with all of the offline devices listed.  I also lose connection to the internet when game consoles are not powered off properly.  I lose connection to the internet if the router is rebooted while the modem is on.  These all seem like fixable issues, but it seems like these folks are focused on bigger and better things at the moment.  Early in the life of the router...Netduma would give out beta firmware that tried to address identified issues.  Now...not so much.  Something changed for sure.

    Hotfix firmware works well on 5GHz for me.  No disconnects and I am getting full ISP speeds over 5GHz wireless.

    I tried it per your instructions and it does work in my case in the way that you describe.  Thanks for the suggestion.

    This happens to me when the router reboots due to a power loss, or when I manually reboot it.  When it happens, I have noticed that it has trouble getting a WAN IP address from the ISP.  I can usually get the issue resolved by toggling the MAC address of the router to either Computer or Default in the settings menu.

    In WAN Setup on the router settings page, you can select NAT Filtering to Open and it may help you get Open NAT on both Xbox consoles.

    Release / offer a beta to let real world users test to see if the fix was successful. The upgraded features in DumaOS were nice, but I had to downgrade due to connection issues that may have been related to UPnP.

    I think the truth is more along the lines of netgear hasn’t sold enough routers yet to make back their investment in netduma. They don’t want people to buy the cheaper netduma with the same software. Also they are hoping we will buy one of their r500s, which we are unlikely to do if we have the upgrade. So I believe we will get the upgrade when netgear accounts department say so.

    I updated to this version. No real changes that I could see. Probably just “bug fixes”. I was hoping for Ping Assist on this release, but it did not happen. There was a post a while back on what was to be included in the next firmware release. Ping Assist was one of them. That post was later removed. My guess is that Netduma is under the direction of Netgear on what can be done/added on these firmware releases. These first releases are probably going to be purely bug fixes, and we may be waiting awhile for any real new features to be added to the XR500 DumaOS. :/

    It is not very intuitive, but you can set your time zone in Settings / Content Filtering / Schedule.  The Time Zone setting is near the bottom.
