  1. many thanks, I will let it run for a while and see if unscheduled reboots return....
  2. so far the only stable version has been .40 hotfix. And since this only seems to be a cosmetic issue, i dont want to "rock the boat" too much with firmware updating... for now ill just leave it for now.... maybe milestone 3 will sort it all out lol
  3. on behalf of the mate i sold this router too, I foolishly upgraded his firmware from the working hotfix version of .40 to .56 only to have the router start rebooting 2 x times a day ?? then reverted back to .40 but in the information, it still shows as .56 but I know it hasnt because the NTP settings page has gone back to .40 hotfix version. So im getting a false reading on the current firmware, how is this rectified ?
  4. my guess is that the XR500 was merely a "test subject" to test the "market" water, as such.... From the lack of firmware updates since launch, we can pretty much determine that this router is now dead in the water , and Netgear just keep pumping out variants for no sensible reason , other than PROFIT! ...and , Netgear are probably the worst company DumaOS could have jumped into bed with....! There were much better to choose from guys....
  5. LOL!! the "back-burner" pile must be getting quite high by now.... given the very low frequency of Netgear's Firmware updates.....
  6. cyberswine, please let us know how you get on with the Hybrid VPN enabled (for IPVanish) . For me I ended up disabling it as it kept causing the Internet to fail every day or couple of days.... i.e. read here hybrid-vpn-keeps-crashing-the-router-every-2-3-days
  7. this was a request a year ago ....and still we wait. Device Auto-detect (a perk) is unnecessary, i would prefer to manually pick the devices anyway like Killhippie stated. Would be nice to see this in place before this router becomes obsolete....
  8. so does the xr500 do Link Aggregation ? no definitive answer available from Netgear ...
  9. ok, this is now getting weird! just for giggles I tried to remove one of the devices in Device manager that i couldnt previously remove.... today, i can remove any devices... wah ? The only things i have done recently are; 1. messed about with the USB Media Share settings (which doesn't work properly http://forum.netduma.com/topic/28131-usb-storage-media-server-malfunction/ ) 2. tweaked a bit at Content Filtering (for parental control) 3. rebooted a couple of times. given that i had done step 3 several times already in my original post, i can only assume either step 1 or 2 remedied the problem.....?
  10. not wasting time with netgear, pulled hard drive off xr500, stuck it on arse of the NAS and added it as a ahare on the NAS. Sony tv now accesses files perfectly Media Server clearly broken on XR500 and subsequently disabled (along with Hybrid VPN lol)
  11. yes files are accessible from a pc but not tv ? tv sees folders but no contents ...?
  12. when i tried to request assistance it said my support had ended.... is there somewhere else to open a ticket ? if you have a link that would be great. thanks
  13. tried that , got nowhere (as per usual with Netgear)
  14. ok reopening this as there is still an issue i cannot resolve old topic was here so... i have the media share setup and i can open the folders using my SONY Smart Tv but it says there are no files ? this is router related as the tv can access and play files no problem from m NAS but not from the share setup on the drive connected to the router ? it shows the folders but no content within ? anyone know how to fix ths ? thanks
