    Ookla is what I was using for the first tests and results are the same as above. I live in an estate yes but my BT hub was providing by much faster speeds than this. I’ll try the WiFi analyzer as you have suggested!

    To be honest that’s not bad results, you would be pushing to get any more. The 5Ghz is capable of a max of 1733Mbps but you never achieve that and a throughput of over 600Mbps is very good. Don’t forget MB/s is different to Mbps so that might be where there is confusion. 
    the XR500 is built around the R7800 and that’s known for great coverage but even that would struggle to hit a gig over WiFi.
    Here’s the thing with routers, there is no holy grail so it’s finding a router that serves your needs. BT might offer a bit more throughput on WiFi but it lacks features where DumaOS can help bufferbloat and you have the geo filter that helps to insure you pick the best servers. 
    If you managed to get around 100Mbps out of 2.4 that’s not bad on WiFi Sweetspots. 2.4 is good for say devices like echos, or rings, all your low data devices. 5Ghz is great for streaming, gaming, devices that require quicker connections. 
    often speed tests don’t show the whole picture, firmware can make a huge difference at the end of the day.

    Spot 1 is 2.4 and spot 2 is 5. Exact same position for both tests.

    So I have tried everything at this point I think. The speeds are slow on 2.4GHz on iPhone, iPad, PS5 and Nvidia Shield. All below 4mb/s. 5GHz is up at 70 MB/s average. Wired on all devices is 100 MB/s +. At my wits end at this stage, but I do appreciate you guys helping! In fact, if you share your PayPal with me, I'd be more than happy to send a few quid for a coffee/pint on me. 
    I tried all the channels on 2.4GHz, I tried AUTO, I tried turning 20/40 MHz Coexistence on and off, I even upgraded to the beta firmware of DUMA 3.0 - No difference. 
     
    I've attached a screenshot of my current 2.4GHz settings.

    10.0.0.50 is a private IP address. Private IP addresses are used inside a local area network (LAN) and are not visible on the internet.

    @Newfie The post is there on netgear but you can't comment or write anything on it like that thread is locked from other now. I think its because people were attacking netgear and netduma.

    Understood thanks. You can connect it direct to the ONT but you will probably need to enter something like PPPoE details into the XR. The easiest way to do this would be to look at the ISP router internet settings and then try to put those in the XR, then remove the router from the equation, connect XR to ONT and reboot. Yes that is fine, just means data is being passed through.

    Good point above. That being said we are testing a version at the moment so would depend on whether any issues are found there or not.

    Ive never seen such childish posts in a long time and attacking Fraser is unnecessary and damn hurtful. Wait for your beta and think about what new router you are going to buy later next year as your XR700 is now END OF LIFE so after 3.0 no more updates! So be glad its getting 3.0 at all. When you buy a router you purchase what's in the box not a right to never ending new features. Hell my RAX120 is being replaced with a RAX120v2 with a CPU revision (still a 2.2Ghz Quad core) but its more up to date silicon, and I'm not lashing out at Netgear. These posts are vile and the issue here is not Fraser, but a case of toys out the pram. Can someone please close this puerile thread.

    While it’s a waiting game for the Beta perhaps you should reframe from all the posts that involve Fraser. 
     
    Fraser might not have answer you want to hear but to continue with this line of what seems to be a personal attack does you no favours and it does not help any other user on this thread.

    I would agree with @Killhippie it's not meant to be unplugged so frequently. When you unplug the router that's not performing a proper reboot so it makes sense you would need to do software reboot after connecting back in. The same is seen on a laptop for example, if you let the power drain then it will sometimes say the computer did not shutdown correctly and then you need to restart it/wait for it to boot up properly.

    Why are you unplugging the router to 'organise' things so much? Routers are kinda designed to be plugged in and left on, and since there is no power switch on the R2 I hope you are not pulling the connector out the back and back in with the power adaptor still on as that can fry a router as it can arc when you push the connector back in. A router should be mounted high up for better Wi-Fi, not hidden behind furniture and electronic equipment that can cause issues by blocking Wi-Fi and inducing RFI and sometimes EMI also its better for the router to have as much ventilation as possible. Mine is on a shelf way up out the way so it does what it needs to do and very rarely gets unplugged. Unplugging it and plugging it in will eventually shorten any electronic devices life as booting up from a zero power state is one of  the most stressful times for any device, also with NVRAM there is the potential to cause corruption if its done to often.

    I would agree with Newfie above, although it should be fine you never know how it will affect it exactly.

    It’s in the same spot since I first installed it before there were problems. There’s really no putting it on a 4ft radial island. 
    Only device I can really think I added before it started messing up was my new iPhone 12 pro, but I kept it on cell only and it would still happen.

    I get that at times, other times is greys out speed. It’s not that great at times to be honest and seems a bit hit or miss. Try it with a different browser to see if that helps. I’ve ran tests with my friend and we both get different greyed out circles.
    we use this sites test.

    When they sort those drivers out you will have blistering connection rates with AX devices and very stable WiFi. Should be a nice router in the long run.

    Ok thanks, that’s a Netgear issue, it means that the firmware is not the same as the RAX50. I would expect to see this added at some point which leads me to think that’s why there is an issue on the AX side.

    Could be. It's not a big deal to me currently since nothing I have currently supports wifi 6. Great router otherwise. Though I think the R2 does a better job as handling ping under load. Thankfully my connection doesn't get loaded when I game

    Neither should hurt and both rely on devices supporting those protocols. I have zero issues with both on as I’m running an AX router but there is the firmware side to consider but it should be fine.

    I'm not seeing a setting for dial up, unless you mean the question, "Does your internet require a login".  It's set to No.
    I appreciate the reply and idea. Any idea is worth checking.
