  1. thanks ill keep updating my original post with each disconnect. I've ruled out it being anything to do with the modem as i replaced it, and same things happens.
  2. still getting random internet disconnects. did a full factory reset last night and setup from scratch.... internet disconnected 2.5 hours later....why ? still no solutions.....
  3. nice one, i completely misread a table indicating the DM200 as being Broadcom when indeed , it is not, cheers .... 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 ? Would there be any advantage at all going from a HG612 (unlocked) to a Zyxel VMG8924 ?
  4. sending the Vigor 130 back to amazon and going to give the Netgear DM200 a go.... if thats no different, will revert to old faithful...DG612 thanks
  5. 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!)
  6. update did a factory reset on router and observed a weird anomaly... as soon as the router was factory reset i setup the internet connection again. at first the speed was around 60Mbps but then over the next 5 minutes, every speed test resulted in a gradual drop down to around 8Mbps....(and stayed there) ? what is going on with this router ??
  7. so i thought Id fork out £77 for a shiney new Draytek Vigor 130 modem to help improve my speeds .... or so i thought. Everything looked great when i was setting up the modem, plug and play and download speeds reported as 74MB down 13MB up... hooked up the xr500 to the wan port and xr cant get over 10Mbps ?....wtf ?? have rebooted router 10 times and same issue remains.... why will router not deliver the modems speed ?
  8. is it rebooting or disconnecting the internet only ? i have a post related to internet disconnects and found that by disabling Smart Connect, my disconnects dropped from daily to every 3-4 days... seems there are alot of us now with this problem Fraser..
  9. cheers for that Alex a specialist from Netgear contacted me directly via email and i am liaising with him directly on the issues debug logs have been sent... ps. the router hasnt dropped internet once since i completely disabled QoS.... mnnnn ? Will watch it for a week and see before re-enabling it again and re-monitoring for another week.
  10. no i cannot identify anything specific happening at the time of internet disconnections... All i see in logs are lots of repeated DHCP renews for the same device over about 30 seconds and then repeated each hour ....? Why are these devices being assigned several times over a 30 second (or so) period ? Surely it should just do it once... And why cant i change lease time to more than an hour ? I thought there was a setting where this could be changed.... ? 99% of my devices are setup with static IP's in the Address Reservation table, with the few exceptions of a few wireless devices, 1 x ipad, 2 x iphones Yes, i will happily speak with a Netgear Specialist (as long as he speaks "clear English" !! LOL!!)

range .18 - .253 shown above) (Should the modem even be on the same IP range as the router ? or should it be on its on separate IP , like 192.168.1.1 ?) or does it matter ? (Lan 2 port on the modem is used to access the modems GUI and to monitor stats, so if i changed the modem IP to 192.168.1.1 , i would probably lose that ability ?) I also have an Apple Airport configured to act as a wifi extender (setup as bridge) on IP 192.168.2.16 (which is outside of the DHCP range .18 - .253 shown above) ** Neither of these devices are included in the Lan Reservation Table above ** Does setting these 2 devices up in this manner make any difference ? ideally, i would love to have the Modem do all the PPPoE work and have the router just do all that..routing etc. But i tried this before and was a royal pain to get working successfully and still be able to access devices attached to the router , remotely. So i kept things as they were, modem bridge-mode, router pppoe. one thing I haven't tried yet is to completely disable Qos. will do that for a few days and monitor what happens with internet disconnections. prob wont make any difference but at this stage I will try anything !
  11. would be a great feature... im sure there are lots of people out there like myself who would like to be able to access their router via www and use it to wake sleeping computers (or any device for that matter) on the network for remote access. rather than having to leave it on constantly.... i really miss it from my old R7000 running custom DD-WRT firmware... Even the DD-WRT App had this feature which was absolutely brilliant!
  12. router back to doing its Internet Disconnections again 😞 Yesterday it disconnected at 16:03 , just seconds after i started a remote NAS firmware upgrade... nearly had a stroke when it happened as it could have bricked the NAS. [Internet disconnected] Thursday, November 21, 2019 16:03:01 [Internet connected] IP address: 81.***.***.***, Thursday, November 21, 2019 16:05:22 Started to keep a note of when exactly; missed a few times though. may be a list of fail times will help someone here identify the possible cause...

  13. cheers yes exactly that... connect with Remote Desktop and you wanted to wake it up from the router first. i did request it in march 2018... nothing came of it And here https://community.netgear.com/t5/Idea-Exchange-For-Home/Option-to-be-able-to-enable-or-disable-the-broadcast-address-to/idi-p/1524355
  14. Will one of the features be a WOL feature , where we can wake up our sleeping computers with a magic packet sent using the routers web GUI ??
  15. thanks, but already had those disabled. I guess 1-2 drops in a week is better than 2 per day.... if only I could narrow it down just that little bit further to find the root cause
