  1. The hardware will be limited to the upload bandwidth of Sony or Microsoft. 300 mbps and it can flutter a bit over that.
  2. How easy is it to revert to previous firmware? Do I need to download it again?
  3. So my original bandwidth tests at setup wizard detects DL and UL speeds in the mid 900’s. I have google fiber 1gig bandwidth with my service set to use my own router. The XR500 connects directly into fiber jack where it converts fiber into ethernet connection. I have done several factory resets internally through dashboard as well as paper clip the reset button on the back of router. I even have done a full 30/30/30 reset on the XR500 and things seem to be odd as if the router still retains some settings and doesn’t completely factory reset. what I don’t understand is the QOS is set to always or auto detect with DL and UL at 90% and then in congestion control speed fails with a D and won’t get an A or A+ until I lower my DL and UL to recommended levels? To top things off I get a pop up saying device not found? Also tests are done with my whole household online for real world simulation of traffic 🤓
  4. https://turbospeedwifi.com/best-ethernet-cable-for-ps5/ https://www.hayksaakian.com/best-ethernet-cable-for-xbox-series-x/ I highly recommend Cable Matters brand shielded cat 6 ethernet cables I know at least up to 14ft orders you get 5 individual cables for the price and long runs revert back to single cables per pack for the price https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters-Snagless-Shielded-Ethernet/dp/B00ET9EUTK?ref_=ast_sto_dp&th=1 Anything past cat 6 would be overkill.
  5. I think its time across both forums respectfully the partnership between both sides gets put up for all to read and get a better understanding of all the workings and politics that tend to keep things tied up in the fodder. I see all manner of intellect that has come through the doors on both sides. Regardless of degrees and novice experience individual perspectives are to be respected and met on common ground. What seems simple and straight forward for some without knowing the politics within the partnership or "marriage" between both companies is in for what appears to be nothing but wall after wall of headaches and feeling on the consumer side of not being cared for as a top priority. Both sides do address issues but in different order or if hand in hand Netgear has always taken forever to push updates out. Anyone with history from the last 15 years should know this as common place. Personally even though I know this I still bite and purchased the XR500. I have my own list of hiccups that need to be ironed out. I have my game console and my three sons are well into the teenage years of their lives and thats a total of four consoles as well as everything wired and wireless on my local network. I have also seen consumers with 20 plus connections and a knowledge base on networking that is well above everyones pay grade here. It all boils down to understanding where everyone is coming from to get clarity on why things are the way they are. Personally I blame NETGEAR for the pace things are going. BUT if I look at the R1 or R2 routers I would have to imagine they are not partnered to an outside company and all the bells and whistles that are in the woodwork should be well ahead of these available for Netgear hardware, unless there is something in the Netgear "contract" that is stepping on the toes of lets say DumaOS 4.0 for example. I have come and gone back to my ISP provided hardware several times over the YEARS and even with this last firmware round as of this posting believe it or not I'm tempted on getting an R2 just to see if my few personal issues get ironed out. At this point anyone reading this would say I am crazy and I should not continue to support both sides but I have faith things will shape up better moving forward into the future. Netgear is juggling many devices and it took a bite into the gaming world and probably didn't expect so much backlash from consumers on hardware with there badge on it but with the SOUL of gamers within the SOFTWARE. Please feel free to go on over to NETGEAR and see how things are going on over there. https://community.netgear.com/t5/Nighthawk-Pro-Gaming-Routers/bd-p/en-home-nighthawk-pro-gaming-routers As you can see the NetDuma Team also tries their best to help out over on that board as well. Take care everyone on both sides of the pond. GG
  6. XR500. I’m in now. I had to switch from auto detect router to nighthawk router in order for it to work! Thanks for responding regardless.
  7. It’s not working for me for whatever reason. I’m on iOS phone.
  8. Will there be select ping targets for battlefield 4 or rainbow six siege in the drop down list or are these games already in the QOS DumaOS classified games list?
  9. Who is your ISP? What’s the model number of your gateway? You can go on YouTube and look up your specific ISP and gateway model number and search it with pass through or bridge mode. you might have to turn quite a few things off and change a couple of settings before turning off the Wi-Fi settings in the gateway last so you don’t have to factory reset the gateway. Here are examples of my particular ISP gateways and getting them to work with XR500 router. Obviously you can tell my ISP ATT FIBER and my gateway is a BGW-210. your specific ISP and gateway may vary. 🥸
  10. Geo filter off traffic controller off and I never seen ad blocker in XR500. I might be overlooking it somewhere???? I have fiber gig connection although pipes are big I still want my gaming packets bumped ahead of the line upload and download. I leave QOS off but to me that’s a major link in this all as my household is heavy streaming of various online HD content.
  11. Will recreate zoom meeting with it on secure and open see if I notice anything. It’s the weekend so we will be sleeping in late 😎 will keep you posted. right now Xbox won’t go online wired but wireless it will. Alex I will try everything you mentioned as well Thanks again 🤘🏾
  12. Thank you Alex if no new firmware arrives by the weekend I’ll take this weekend to set everything back up. Yes the 7th of October is when things started to go wrong.
  13. I had to factory reset my gateway and take the xr500 completely out of the loop for my kids sake. They are all on chromebooks doing home schooling and every period they attend the virtual learning of each teacher with zoom meeting but starting Wednesday last week zoom was not able to connect they would join the class but then get dropped. Talked to school technical support did all these foresters in chromebook but in the end I reset my ATT fiber gateway back to stock and connect to it and everything works flawlessly. on the xr500 side it’s running the beta firmware and multiple factory reset dances have been performed. Regardless of all these resets only thing I noticed that wasn’t right was ipv4 and ipv6. I never really cared about ipv6 but within inner circle of friends on Xbox everyone would be running ipv4 and ipv6. Right now even though my ATT gateway has ipv6 enabled my console is getting an ipv4 address but my kids come before my gaming so as long as school keeps spinning for them I will sit on sidelines. I’m curious if anything in the next firmware update will help with this. Gratuitous ipv4 currently on console not bouncing back and forth from ipv4 and ipv6 like it would when the xr500 was connected.
  14. This was what I was going to look into but since I had it for so long running on .56 firmware and the LAN light was always white this made me wonder both sides of the coin. Was it not working right on 56 and nobody ever caught that little hiccup. I will still post this over on the netgear board and see what netgear has to say for confirmation. I am 99.9999999% you are correct Newfie 🤟🏽
