    I'm not sure if it's exactly related as ARP table entries are quite normal. Could you disable IPv6 please and see if that helps?

    Yes I can confirm this is a major issue.  Wifi and Hardwired issues with the latest .56 version.  I tried playing a few COD Black Ops 4 and I keep getting connection interrupted in every match.  So it looks like every 5-10 minutes the internet is dropping out.  After the upgrade I even did a factory reset to see if it would resolve the issues.  The factory reset did not help at all.
     
    Wifi - Google Pixel 3XL . -I am logged in to Skype for Business for work and it keeps letting me know everytime it drops in and out
    XBOX ONE X - Hardwired - Dropping in and out from the internet during Black Ops 4 MP matches


    How do I downgrade to an older version if I need to?

    How are not even getting any information at all about updates.  Where are we at with new new firmware.  For the love of God, someone with some balls that works for NetDuma or Netgear please respond to this post and let us know where the updates are.

    Can I please get someone code a hysterical laughing sound for when I click on the check for update button on my NetDuma XR500.  I think that should definitely be put into the next build for sure.

    As we all sit here as NetDuma is pointing fingers at NetGear about it being their fault that the updates are not rolling out.  I get emails about new firmware being released for NetGear products.  Can we please get someone from NetGear to join this forum to get some insight from the NetGear side.

    So can we get some truth out here?  So what is the true hold up? Development, Testing, Product Management, Lack of Focus, Time, Money?  Also while you are trying to be witty and come up with a response.  Please tell us the real truth about the NetGear and NetDuma relationship/t?  NetDuma has this opportunity to become the kings of gaming routers and own the market.  Only if they can get this pulled together and release updates more frequent.  Also how do you not have beta testers for the xr500/700 that just seems insane.

    While I do see your point, Jack. Something feels like it has changed behind the scenes. NTGR always give out quarterly updates for bug fixes and updates like the R7800's update to dnsmasq 2.78 and login password enhancement in 1.0.2.62 for routers that are current and worth their time and effort as they are still bring in cash, the R7000 is a good eaxple of a router that was kept going well past its sell by date because it worked so well, and people kept buying them.

     Anyway back to the router in hand, you could add the promised new icons for different devices, you could work out why UPnP does not show on Macs running Safari and Firefox. There are the leaks in the VPN app that need fixing, the messed up port table view and inconsistent actions of the old view (still showing devices online that are not) General bug fixes are needed on the way to milestone 1.4, tbh I have no need to know what's  ahead but I am more interested in the here and now and the bugs that exist now. Also updates to present issues which were kind of promised, like simply providing more icons for devices was talked about early last year in march I think although I may be mistaken, anyway well before talk of milestones, but when milestone 1.3 hit we never got them.

     Software development is very complicated more so than maybe I can imagine, but you cant leave everything and just concentrate on the latest and greatest milestones and new routers for NTGR which I'm sure you have been asked to furnish with DumaOS and at the same time just not fix current issues, its like the XR450/500/700 have to be shelved because you don't have the manpower to look after them and develop new firmware for new upcoming hardware and Milestone1.4 at the same time. This is why I feel unsettled I have to say.

     Voxel and kamaj keep posting new updates for the R7800 NTGR fork as well as NTGR themselves and that router even though the hardware is almost identical was released in January 2016, Its a very popular model, and there's the rub. NTGR don't just stop pushing updates to their kit, there are always bugs to fix, and I am sure you have versions of DumaOS that would cure some of the GUI issues, and patch other issues in milestone 1.3 I would hope. So keeping a small team working on the bugs of the XR range would be surely prudent? Right now having a router sit idle with no updates, and not a whiff of when the router will get one leaves me to think that Netduma and NTGR have other plans with the new AX devices and these current routers will be at some point hit with EOL because of a lack of interest and ultimately financial gain by NTGR. Of course I could be very wrong, and I hope I am but in all my years of using NTGR hardware the silence has never been so deafening.

     NTGR are here to make a profit and that's what they should be doing, you guys are too, your company has to grow as well. You want DumaOS to evolve, but when I realised the last update to the XR450/500 was December 2018 it felt quiet perturbing. I do not believe there are no security fixes that need patching, and that Netduma have nothing in milestone 1.3 that needs tweaking, we know there are issues, but If its going to be that we now wait for new milestones before we get updates from Netduma/NTGR the gaps in between updates will be to long and current bugs will just remain unfixed and people will just move on as the router is not behaving in a stable enough fashion.

     Being both reactive and proactive and keep people updated with fixes so they know their hardware is as up to date as possible while squashing as many current bugs as you can is just as important as working on new versions of DumaOS. Imagine if say Apple only released iOS 12 and never patched it to sort out GUI bugs and security issues until iOS 13 a year later, that would be the death of them. The same with Android being patched monthly on some devices too, I guess my point is there are always things to fix. As it stands right now it feels like present hardware is kind of less important due to things happening behind the scenes we are not privy to which is fair enough, but when there are patches to put out so why are you not pushing them to NTGR and more worryingly why are NTGR not just updating their firmware if nothing else.

     The current hardware and and how it works will determine the future of new hardware by proxy if you see my point. If people just see inactivity for months on end why would they buy into new versions of NTGR gaming hardware and DumaOS if the same thing will happen again. I know you guys are busy, and I appreciate the hard work you put in, but it does feel like the old hardware is just gaining dust while Netduma works on new versions of DumaOS, as well as new hardware from NTGR that you need to furnish with DumaOS as well.  That's just how I feel, I may be well off  the mark and I really hope I am, but equally I hope you can understand my fears, during this period of dormancy

    We agree too! We have that with that our own R1, we have a bunch of beta testers who can help us find all bugs very quickly. Can't make promises but the plan is for this to be the same with NG hardware too 😊

    Sounds like you need more testing done on the new firmwares. Release them as betas and you could have thousands of beta testers, us! This will track down bugs faster. Openwrt has new builds daily. Let us help you make your product the best it can be!

    We need more frequently updated firmware. Don't try and fix everything at once. Release what you have fixed. Then work on more fixes. Waiting 3 months plus is a long time to wait for simple fixes imo.

    Can we please get the new Ping Assist implemented ASAP.  It is all fine and well to say available soon, but you all have been saying that for the last 2 weeks with no ETA.  Either a new fix/Firmware update or Ping assist would be nice.  I core piece of the product is not working as designed.  I would think this would be a priority, is it not?
