    Killhippie got a reaction from Netduma Fraser in Dos attack   
    Netgear routers label port scans and almost all traffic as DoS attacks it seems, they are very paranoid as far as logs, and its totally normal. This is the noise of the internet, as I said none are Dos Attacks, and the fact the firewall dropped the packets is good anyway. Port scans are done all the time and most of this is probably normal traffic the router does not like. Don't worry about it, its normal. If it was a Dos attack you would not be posting. My logs look the same, in fact every Netgear router I have ever had has logs like this.

    Killhippie got a reaction from Mement in To filter or not to filter that is the question   
    No router can really improve your base ping, thats down to your connection the  network and how hot your ISP runs things, if you have a bad connection a good router may just highlight its issues more. Routers cant overcome the laws of physics, also at this time the XR500 is in need of an update as for some the Geo Filter stops working. Either wait out the update and hope they fixed this issue (it will happen at some point sooner rather than later but it depends on your patience quotient) or go get something else tbh. Or if you just have contention issues on your line then there is really nothing that can be done beyond what you have tried.

    Killhippie reacted to PharmDawgg in UPnP, is it safe/secure? Networking in general   
    You are fine to use upnp.  If you are concerned I would use Steve Gibson's upnp exposure testing site.  He is big into networking security.  I believe that there is an internal firewall built into the router that helps protect you from any security issues. Maybe one of the developers from Netduma can speak more details concerning the issue and also I would post on Netgear's site and ask as well.  But all in all I think you are fine to use upnp.

    We are approaching 4 months with out an update, not even a security patch from NTGR or a Netduma fix for issues with the table view for device manager just to name one current bug among many. It seems like the router is just not that important, after all all those shiny AX devices must be getting ready for DumaOS as Wi-Fi 5 is not a selling point this year. At this time the XR450/500 feel pretty abandoned tbh. I have to say if the continued lack of development  for small but needed updates for "milestone 1.3" or NTGR hardware continue  I'll be looking at new routers that are maybe not so niche and that get at least quarterly updates, I mean even the R7800 has a newer update than the XR500. This forum and the hardware it supports feel very stagnant at this time I have to say.

    I mean its only been 7 months since this bug was created by milestone 1.3 aka v2.3.2.40 so no rush hey 🙄

    Killhippie speak the word brother!! I totally agree with you! We cant go from milestone to milestone with no patches along the way. And going these lengths between milestones this type of model will not survive. I have no idea where this is even thought of as a possible method. Honestly I have no idea who thought this would be just fine. But I can tell you one thing.. People that are the consumers wont forget this.. Ive watched closely in this forum how some have bought this XR500 and returned it rather quickly because of odd issues.  I cant blame them a bit! I hung onto mine thinking any day now we will get some patches.. If someone would have told me it would be months on end I would have said they were crazy.. Well looks like the joke is on me! 
     At this stage of the game I don't care if Netgear is in charge of these so called fixes or firmware updates.. And im sure we the consumer don't care either but just want some support that doesn't get strung out months on end telling us nothing and even worse fixing nothing..  Netduma has to realize there name is on this product as well. They also need to man up and say hey Netgear we need to get this corrected and have some direction here.. I don't see this from Netduma at all.. They seem to be laying down and just winging it! I cant believe I have to even write this so we can get some support.. Basic business fundamentals is completely missing here..

    The old R7000 has had two updates already this year! So much for it's on netgear. Seems they're supporting everything but the XR series. Now who's to blame?

    You have in my opinion one of the most quirky models for patching and updating firmware I've seen to be honest. Your team dropped milestone 1.3 in December last year (18th I think) and have not patched one bug so far, and keep telling us big things are coming well after a while people just give up, and you have seen this before as it sounds a lot like the R1 situation with "DumaOS is coming" all over again. I really thought Netduma would have realised this isn't the way to communicate, or patch firmware. Of course this is just my point of view but maybe you guys are spreading yourselves to thin with new projects to spend time patching old ones?  I don't care about what's coming, I care about what I'm using now tbh. Anything new in the works after bug fixes, well its all gravy.

     As I see it you really shouldn't patch by upgrading OS levels, rather like if Apple for instance released iOS 12 and then no bug fixes for a year and then patched iOS 12 by releasing iOS 13! There are always security issues and bugs, hell you wont even push Netgear to patch all that out of date code. (looking at you OpenSSL and miniupnd amongst many others) You should be patching bugs in between milestones, and that's as much to do with you and your Devs decisions on where to put the resources as it is Netgears, I'm sure.

    You have loads of space for overheads by the looks of it. Have you though about creating a new profile, you will loose add ons but keep bookmarks etc, it may be a some corruption in your main profile causing the script issues, you can always just keep your existing profile if it doesn't help and import it back. http://kb.mozillazine.org/Creating_a_new_Firefox_profile_on_Windows

    On the 18th of July it will be 7 months since an update has dropped for the XR500. Netduma's mood towards Netgear seems very distant right now but without some transparency this is all guess work. If Netgear and Netduma have parted company and Netgear are reaching end of support for their AC routers it would be good to know so I can sell the router and move on. Its buggy, QoS does not always work as it should, network mapping gets confused, the Geo Filter seems to do not much any more, UPnP has never populated for me in over a year. It only did on one of the early firmwares and thats not good as you cant go back due to lots of security issues. I think a statement about whats going on is needed for people that Own Netgear/DumaOS devices so they can move forward if these routers are not going to get regular updates. I'm not waiting seven months for the next update when this one finally drops that's for sure! Communication does not seem to be Netduma's strong point or Netgears and that just hurts the user base.

    If you are using HT160 turn it off as it can cause issues with packet loss in crowded Wi-Fi environments where lots of routers are near each other, if you can see them in your iOS list that means turn that off. As to updates, yes its a pain but its not just the XR500 I have noticed missing out on updates. from netgear oddly enough.

    Have you troubleshot your system? I haven't see any iOS disconnects with my XR router. Works well, also have a EX7700 connected with it. Seen some iOS version were problematic as well so, its not entirely a router issue.

    I’m in agreement here ,it’s the 15th July and amazon prime day ,might be some router deals to go for ,I’ve never had a router that does not get supported after it’s been released and initially firmware got bugs mostly resolved, the timeline of updates is very poor and also NetDuma seem to be distancing themselves away from this thread , I was told when I decided to move from ASUS Rog rapture to XR500 that the product would be fully supported moving forward,this was over a year ago now and I kind of feel let down that people are seeing some issues and firmware release is poor, understand Netgear but when I owned R7800 they did at least throw out firmware, so really the question is ,has the XR500 now been put to one side in favour of the newer AX models,Netgear still advertisers XR on Facebook ,one more month and I’m done if no firmware, getting on my nerves family members asking why the iOS device keeps disconnecting.Back to ASUS I think 🤔

    I don't think anyone here is really blaming Netduma.. Most of us here already know Netgear is in full control..  And Fraser has stated before they cant talk about firmware drops and things of that nature because of there agreement with Netgear.. Those are somethings we know.. Heres where things get fuzzy.. Does that also mean we cant even get updates on where we stand with current issues.. And when I say updates im talking verbally speaking about where there at with a particular issue..  That's what id like to know...  Another fuzzy area is that Netgear usually has quarterly updates. We have not had one in 7 months. That means we are getting close to two updates behind if not two already.. Again this is strictly about issues.. Not the next milestone.. Unless the only time we get fixes is with each new milestone.. Which I hope isn't the case... These are just some questions that I have and im sure others have.. None of this is meant to be any ill will towards Netduma.. Im sure Netduma is doing there best as they can.. This is really on Netgear..  Because at the end of the day Netgear is calling all the shots!
