    Hello White, it’s been a while since we chatted if you are from AVForums.
    have you tried reinstalling the latest firmware over the top and then leave it for 5 mins then factory reset using rear pin method and don’t use a saved cfg when you set.

    The 450 will have the same kind of WiFi coverage as the 500 but it’s data rate is slower that’s all.

    Massive packet loss might be down to what’s going on at the moment. COD servers are not great anyway but given that the internet is under strain which kind of shows on the plotter test.

    Have you considered massive packet loss is due to ISPs throttling connections due to strain on the networks because of Covid-19. Gamers come last in the list of prioritised traffic shaping wise in possible new rules to be possibly brought in as home workers come first. YouTube and Netflix in some areas in the EU are reducing bit rate to SD to reduce bandwidth as well, so it would make sense that at this time people may at points see packet loss and spikes too. I would imagine unless using a gaming package this will continue as the world isolates itself, severs will be hammered due to so many people around the world using them simultaneously.

    I think at the moment isp’s are under huge strains and when Netflix and YouTube lower byte rates this tells you there are issue. No router, no software will be getting you the connection you want at the moment and most router forums are seeing complaints over poor performance which is related to the internet rather than their equipment.

    Newfie reacted to d23perry in Xr700 -- Failed to obtain IP address / uanble to connect with WiFi devices   
    I wish I had known that using online support was the way to go.  I think Netgear finally closed out my case number without a callback.  That was definitely not great customer service. 
    Still, I decided to give Netgear another shot.  I purchased the RAX120.  It doesn’t have the same bells and whistles as the XR700, but it is not lacking much either.  I do miss the DumaOS tho. 
    So far, the RAX120 has been flawless. I let it run a day on an older firmware version, and then updated it to the current firmware. I have not experienced any disconnects or loss of internet since it has been installed.  Perhaps someday soon I won’t need to look at my smart switches to see if that dreaded red WiFi logo is on. 
    Thanks again for your support.

    You can’t change the ariels or alter the max allowed transmit power. If you can’t place the router more central then NETGEAR do a range of extenders with some being able to be AP or extender.

    Unfortunately, my optimism over yesterday's temporary step forward was short-lived.  The XR700 did seem to perform better under the older firmware initially. However, I woke up this morning with several of my wireless clients offline.  A reboot of the router did not help.  I have decided to move on from the XR700--returning it today. 
    I also recognize that technology evolves so quickly.  You can try to keep one step ahead, but tomorrow will always bring something different.  Still, I try not to settle on what my current needs are today.  I do my best to anticipate what they may be tomorrow also. 
    The R9000 is similarly equipped and impressive as the XR700.  But I must say that I have a very sour taste in my mouth from my experience with the XR700.   You guys have been quite responsive to my postings, and I am very thankful.  However, I began this support journey by contacting NetGear directly.  In my telephone support call to NetGear, I was made to do nonsensical things like changing DNS server settings in the router, even when I was not experiencing any issues with the internet.  Ultimately, the call was escalated and I was promised a callback without any ETA.  I was expected to sit around endlessly waiting for a return call while my smart home is crippled, as I am not even able to remotely turn on a lightbulb due to the wireless connectivity issues.  To date, I still have not received a callback.
    The router I initially set out to purchase was the ASUS Rapture GT-AX11000.  I was able to get no interest for 6 months on a store card where the XR700 was available, so I settled for that.  Perhaps that is where I went wrong -- settling on a purchase based on trying to avoid a little bit of interest. I won't make that mistake again. 

    I appreciate all of the advice and assistance you and the rest of the members offered!

    I think maybe you might be better of with an R9000 which is the same as the XR700 but without Duma to be honest.

    I had the same yesterday, I noticed away from home that network had dropped. A simple reboot of router was required and all is back. So far it seems fine.

    Just an update, i woke up this morning to my xr500 having no internet, long story short i had to do a factory reset and i have just gone to do a speedtest, im consistently getting the speed i pay for instantly and i have lost 7ms of ping over my usual servers on speedtest.net , but more importantly on pingplotter now, with QoS at 70% i have next to no movement on ping what so ever. Even with QoS disabled whilst watching a 1080p60fps video on YouTube im not seeing any pingspikes, certainly nothing like  i was where it was hundreds of ms.  😀
