    Killhippie got a reaction from Newfie in preferential treatment... youtubers etc...   
    Most ISP's give you a static IP which wont really help in a game. My ISP gives static IP's for free to all customers. They may well have enterprise routers certainly not soho gaming ones and possibly have link aggregation or just a second line for backup. They can also probably afford fibre for the small gain it will get you. You have to rememberer they probably have loads of bad games like everyone else and post the best, also its their job to play and post videos, so they are probably really good at them too. I think that's about as special as it gets.

    They are using the same paths as you it’s just that they play day in, day out.

    I know a few folk with leased/business/dedicated gaming lines and they have just as many problems on CoD as the rest of us do so I don't think that makes as much of a difference as you might think.

    Killhippie got a reaction from Netduma Admin in 2.4 ghz WIFI not visible   
    XR500 supports support 802.11 b/g/n/ac 2.4GHz. Sounds like you have a dead radio tbh, especially if the guest network isn't working. Best to RMA it via Netgear possibly. Have you tried a factory reset as a last resort and followed admins suggestion to divide the channels to confirm no 2.4Ghz visibility.?

    Yes. They have the same SSID... I did that on purpose (I do realize the implications of it... I assumed devices might somehow prefer it over the XR500)... but even switching off the Trendnet access point completely, the Astrum receiver does not pick up the XR500's 2.4 network. It only likes/sees the Trendnet's 2.4 when its running... so bizzare. 😕

    Again thank you... I think the wifi explorer tool will be able to help me debug a lot

    Probably not helping you have two lots of 2Ghz running at the same time, one on the XR and one on the Trendnet. Have they both got the same SSID and password?

    Ssshh don't reveal our technology, it's not too dissimilar from a Tardis if you catch my drift 😉
    You would be surprised, I have in the past seen that the router is not accessible/broken and having been unplugged for a long period of time (even longer than 24 hours sometimes months) a user will just try to use it and it will suddenly be working after previously leaving it unplugged for a little while and going back.

    Why? Routers like the XR500 hold their value you could get a nice chunk back and get an Asus. They game really well, a few users on this forum use them. (no disrespect to Netduma) people use what suits them best. Wait for 3.0 and if its still not doing what you want, then move on.

    I understand you're frustrated now but performing internal tests and then a beta are very different. Different user setups, ISPs, connection methods etc. We have to be cautious, if we did an immediate open beta and it bricked everyone's routers then that would be a lose lose situation and you would be way more annoyed then. More batches will be rolled out as and when, keep an eye on your emails.

    I do not understand your relentlessness in wanting to test a beta with its lot of bugs? ... And which every time will disappoint you in part!
    Let there be time, you will undoubtedly be happy to be able to enjoy a stable version as soon as possible.
    The team has taken note of our grievances for over a year, I dare imagine that they will offer us a FW of god fire since time ....

    The issue is Zippy if you Google Asus, Zyxel, D-link, etc (who just abandoned a line of routers with critical firmware holes) they all have current issues. I'm thinking about getting a rack put in and some enterprise gear (second hand) and hardening my network, SOHO routers are just not great from any provider. The most basic of home routers probably all leak like sieves.

    Killhippie got a reaction from raf1212 in XR300 Vulnerable to attack and hijack using a telnet backdoor   
    This vulnerability allows network-adjacent attackers to bypass authentication on affected installations of Netgear routers. Authentication is not required to exploit this vulnerability. At this time there is no patch for the XR300. So far 79 models are vulnerable. Turn off remote management if you have it on. Probably best to avoid the DMZ at this time too. Exploit code, developed by infosec outfit Grimm, is available on GitHub for all the models said to be vulnerable: it opens telnet daemon on port 8888, if successful.

     There's technical details here. The bugs lie in the web-based control panel of the Linux-powered equipment. It can be hijacked by sending it specially crafted data, bypassing the password protection, via the local network, or the internet if it is exposed to the world, or by tricking a victim into opening a webpage that automatically connects to the device on the LAN. Once exploited, the device can be commanded to open a backdoor, change its DNS and DHCP settings to redirect users to phishing websites, and so on. Many of these routers are EOL (end of life) and some date back all the way to 2007, but some like the R6700v3 have been patched already, but not its brother XR300! Keep an eye out for a hotfix.

    Don't feel like this, just sell it if its not doing what you need. Netduma are a great company but not all hardware is a good fit for your needs.

    I see the R6300 is on the list.. That router there was widely handed out by Spectrum here in the US. Its a freebee Spectrum gave out.. People like free so they rarely ever buy there own.. Specially if it works okay for them yet.. Spectrum being one of the largest ISP in the US makes me wonder how many are still floating around out there..
    Good post Killhippie!
