    Killhippie reacted to Netduma Fraser in XR500 WiFi issue w HT160 and smart connect enabled   
    Hey, welcome to the forum!
    Those are Netgear features so if they said that they don't work together then that's most likely. I will say that not having any devices that can benefit from HT160, when I have it enabled I get much worse performance from my wireless devices and that was with smart connect off so I wouldn't recommend using it unless you definitely know your devices support it.

    As newfie says very few devices use 160Mhz, bigger numbers do not always mean better throughput or data rates. Use the search engine of your choice but making informed decisions based on some research always helps

    Devices have to support HT160 which there are very few hence why your devices drop. There’s also issues with IPv6 which are known.
    stick the HT80 on and leave it there.

    XR700 is now permanently back to the store. It wasn't hard to explain the shortcomings of the system which under warranty means the product has to deliver what is promised. 8 months is enough for the company to rectify things if they don't work properly. I have given you guys that, but I see no end to it.
    My search will now be on again for a premium router that actually delivers what is promised out of the box. Not 2 years later.
    Never again will I buy a router where I depend only on the manufacturer. I will make sure it can be flashed with 3rd party OS if the parent company can not provide functional OS. 
    Mement said it was about time to show compassion for your fanbase and customers. I would like to rephrase that into: It's about time the company shows respect to their clients. We entered an agreement when we bought your product, but that agreement has never been fulfilled. 
    I'm done here. No more NetDumbOS for me, thank you very much. 
    I wish you all good luck in a non-sarcastic way.

    It wont last long at that speed and is not needed, on my 120 it comes on when the CPU hits 60C and it never has hit 60C. I really doubt your XR700 needs a fan on all the time otherwise Netgear would have built it to be on on 24/7, it wont help with longevity or gaming. If its a hardware fault or you suspect it is its best to RMA it. The XR700 is if you look around the forums buggy as hell though.

    Killhippie got a reaction from Netduma Fraser in XR500 Firmware version 2.3.2.56 released.   
    Also you will open up yourself to security issues, I really wish  Netduma would state that, because people can get hacked or have their LAN compromised on any firmware below .56 and no mention of at your own risk is ever put out when users are told to say try an earlier version. Not having a go here, just security focused in an age where there are always vulnerabilities around the corner. Also if you router becomes bricked by a security issue fixed in later firmware, Netgear will not honour your warranty on a earlier unpatched version.

    Log into debug mode and see. Tbh the router will cool itself as needed, having the fan on 24/7 will just reduce its life and its not user user replaceable.

    Hey, welcome to the forum!
    I would always suggest if performance is your aim then to try and use ethernet if possible. The XR500 will still be able to control the devices even if they're connected to the R6.

    All the geo filter did for me was make the Tower empty of players, Destiny 2 also ended up rubber banding and booting me out into orbit quite a lot using the default settings for Destiny on the XR500. 10% sounds right but surely if you are the only person in the house you wont suddenly decide to saturate your network while gaming anyway...

    Killhippie got a reaction from Newfie in New xr500 "This R-App is not loaded yet, please try again in a minute." message   
    Factory reset is the best you can do, unless you reload the firmware and try again. Honestly I would try and get the unit RMA'd as nobody should have that many issues with loading an R-App. Talk to Netgear or return the router and grab a XR500 its a lot more stable. Personally I have moved on to pastures new due to so many bugs alas, but the XR500 is a good router.

    You are close to your cabinet and have the max attainable sync.
    Normally 6db is the default  noise margin but as you are close you have 7bd because of more headroom.
    It will just be the speedtests not being that accurate it could be you are using WiFi to run the tests (always use wired with nothing else using the network at the time), others on your line using bandwidth while you test or a little ISP congestion because of everyone being at home across the country.
    I would be very happy with those stat's.

    Destiny is P2P there is not much you can do about that, 30-40ms ping is fine and what I would expect to see in Destiny 2 and Destiny will match you with other players of similar rank really it seems after a short period so Geo Filter doesn't do much. Also you need it in Filtering mode and tbh setting the ping does not help this game. You have a good game set up already with Destiny as I see it. Also you cant change the laws of physics and Destinys servers dont like Strict mode at all. As far as throughput, what are your antibufferbloat settings? If you are on your own put them say at 90% as you are the only person in the house, if that's your stuation of course as I found they just reduced my throughput and gave me very little back that was helpful.

    On W10 to access your session, there is a mandatory password to enter!
    But there is a way to delete it Via a trick: command "netplwiz"

    I also think that removing the password when W10 starts can also block access ...
