That is what I am going to do. Get a different router and put the XR500 on the shelf.
Like you and many others we read on this forum but never write. Hoping, on the day we read that we see milestone 1.4 ready to be installed. There has to be so much more going on that these kind folks are not talking about. To the support staff, the ones who reply on this forum, you are warriors and I commend you for your effort. To the management and owners of Netduma, you've got to do better. My guess is that you are frustrated by the situation as well and you wanting to make changes but cannot due to contractual reasons. Hopefully you've learnt from past mistakes and have the opportunity to wright the ship in the future. As of right now, I'm out.
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 😊
Hey, welcome to the forum!
I hope you don't mind but I have merged your topics. As these are features that would be implemented from the Netgear team it's easier for there to be one topic. I'll pass your suggestions on, very good ideas!
