  1. Thanks Luke for the announcement of the new milestone and for setting up the DumaOS insiders which I think will be a winner for everyone.
  2. Thanks for the head up, badge looks great as well 😊
  3. So it’s just disconnecting on the 2.4 and has the sky page with the shield required or has the input for a password?
  4. Are you by any chance having disconnection issues on any 2.4 channels?
  5. I’ve got to be honest and say for my usage so far I’ve not had any real issues, touch wood. I was hoping though that after yesterday’s Apple update on my iPad the new operating system with it’s all singing new safari features would solve the error I get when trying to access the main settings. Sadly it refuses to even show the settings and Chrome has a script error under setting so it would be mighty painful to try to alter the main settings if I had not got my old MacBook.
  6. I’m on the same setup and I managed to get a bit more speed out of the line compared to my old Apple router. You did add your speed profile into the QoS section yes? its not your router that I mentioned turning on and off it’s your modem. i take it you are using a HG612 modem too or are you using the BT home hub and calling that a modem.
  7. Haha what I do is either run from one side of the property to the other when I turn them on or I log in to them on a split screen on the iPad and reboot at the same time. Depends on how fit I feel lol. One of them has my Arlo camera system attached, I’m having real issues with Arlo it’s just not detecting movement close up at times but at least this way the siren is not in my sitting room 😊
  8. I did mention it on their forums and from there found out only the Orbi has this ability. It’s is a problem as you say with the one name mesh setup. Apart from that they work great.
  9. Just to chip in that I use 2 EX8000 extenders and they work great. No real issues apart from one where if I reboot the router and the router tenders are left on they connect to each other. They need a function like the Orbi where they can be told to connect to router only.
  10. Do you have the Nighthawk app installed. It has a speed test and gives a spot on speed test and it’s better than speedtests own app. I’m on BT too and don’t forget if you keep turning the modem on and off it will limit the speed for a while as it thinks there’s an issue.
  11. I think as I've only had a glance over the new ipadOS it's safari being good old Apple but the iPad will use a desk top view rather than mobile which is currently used. Hopefully it will be compatible and solve the error message if you try to alter anything under settings.
  12. Safari is fine too on my MacBook. Will be interested to see on the 30th when the new OS for the iPad is released if I get the errors on the settings.
  13. I like the format here and the way the Community works together. It’s a lot better than Netgear support and I’ve the Arlo system and to be honest their forum although now a separate company to Netgear is not a patch to this forum. i don’t know another company that helps as much as Netduma, it’s almost 24/7 and here I feel you get a more personal one to one. It’s also friendly and everyone tries to help where they can. Long may it last.
  14. That’s great thanks. Device manager works fine, I watch it go off line and pop on. Works great.
  15. That’s great thanks. I’ve been testing it out but I noticed if a device say my echo is disconnected from the 2.4 it fails to connect to the 5ghz channel automatically . I take it it’s device compatibility maybe? I’m testing it with an esp8266 module.
  16. Smart connect, I’ve a feeling this is more to do with Netgear but does DumaOS work along side this or is this separate ?
  17. It is, I found out Openreach had been working hard to solve some local issues and when it was solved I noticed the speed increase, it’s now back to how it was which is fine.
  18. Mines on 1492, glad you got it sorted. Give it a test and see how it goes.
  19. blast, silly question but are the ariels all connected correctly and hand tightened? Have you got smart connect on? if so try it off. If no difference then Try creating a guest network and connect to that.
  20. I’m guessing the router updated when you first installed it. Quite a few on here feel that after an update a reset is required. There’s a reset on the rear.
  21. Just to double check but under QoS did you put in your upload and download speeds under the anti buffer menu?
  22. try this as I have to occasionally do this when i have a poor connection. Turn off router, turn off modem. Wait say 15mins then turn on modem first and wait for it to fully boot. then turn on router wait again to fully boot and test. Modem must reboot fully before turning router on.
  23. Just a little update. im pleased to say I’ve had a rather nice speed increase after changing the modem. Not sure how or why but all off a sudden my speeds have increased on both download and upload. Perhaps it’s just BT have altered or upgraded something or the modem is simply better in some way. Normally BT tell you if you get a speed increase??
  24. If you have a PS4 VR there’s Everybodys golf that uses the motion controllers. I have the odd game and it’s a good laugh, just got to watch you don’t swing into furniture!
