    Most ISP's give you a static IP which wont really help in a game. My ISP gives static IP's for free to all customers. They may well have enterprise routers certainly not soho gaming ones and possibly have link aggregation or just a second line for backup. They can also probably afford fibre for the small gain it will get you. You have to rememberer they probably have loads of bad games like everyone else and post the best, also its their job to play and post videos, so they are probably really good at them too. I think that's about as special as it gets.

    Routers hate power cuts and spikes and it may have created a hardware issue. Many have their routers on a backup system to protect them.
    did you hold the reset button in for at least 10 seconds?

    I did, I spent even more on the RAX120. There comes a time if you get issues and you don’t get the performance you want and that includes hardware for better coverage it’s time to move on. I’m not alone on this either.
    You could sell the the 500 on and take a hit and move on.

    I understand you're frustrated now but performing internal tests and then a beta are very different. Different user setups, ISPs, connection methods etc. We have to be cautious, if we did an immediate open beta and it bricked everyone's routers then that would be a lose lose situation and you would be way more annoyed then. More batches will be rolled out as and when, keep an eye on your emails.

    I do not understand your relentlessness in wanting to test a beta with its lot of bugs? ... And which every time will disappoint you in part!
    Let there be time, you will undoubtedly be happy to be able to enjoy a stable version as soon as possible.
    The team has taken note of our grievances for over a year, I dare imagine that they will offer us a FW of god fire since time ....

    Well what magic wand will change it. Gaming routers don’t suit all, some call them snake oil, some swear by them. 3.0 is due out, if that fails to work for you then move on.

    Don't feel like this, just sell it if its not doing what you need. Netduma are a great company but not all hardware is a good fit for your needs.

    Does it game better on your other routers. If so I would use them and forget about geo filtering as it’s clearly not working for you.

    Newfie reacted to Killhippie in XR300 Vulnerable to attack and hijack using a telnet backdoor   
    This vulnerability allows network-adjacent attackers to bypass authentication on affected installations of Netgear routers. Authentication is not required to exploit this vulnerability. At this time there is no patch for the XR300. So far 79 models are vulnerable. Turn off remote management if you have it on. Probably best to avoid the DMZ at this time too. Exploit code, developed by infosec outfit Grimm, is available on GitHub for all the models said to be vulnerable: it opens telnet daemon on port 8888, if successful.

     There's technical details here. The bugs lie in the web-based control panel of the Linux-powered equipment. It can be hijacked by sending it specially crafted data, bypassing the password protection, via the local network, or the internet if it is exposed to the world, or by tricking a victim into opening a webpage that automatically connects to the device on the LAN. Once exploited, the device can be commanded to open a backdoor, change its DNS and DHCP settings to redirect users to phishing websites, and so on. Many of these routers are EOL (end of life) and some date back all the way to 2007, but some like the R6700v3 have been patched already, but not its brother XR300! Keep an eye out for a hotfix.

    It's Netduma that have not updated the XR500 with DumaOS patches, not Netgear. Netduma hold the licence for their product, Netgear cant magically patch it for them. The reason you have not seen a Duma update since December 2018 when Milestone 1.3 came out is because they didn't patch their product which is still beyond my comnprehension, I have never seen a comany create a OS then not offer patches for the problems that plagued Milestone 1.3 Also they decided to in the middle of doing milestones to change direction and re-write the OS and along came DumaOS 3.0, so why are you blaming Netgear?  Its a Netduma's code that needed patching, Netgear sat waiting for code to do something with I imagine After all the hardware in the XR500 is only a R7800 with a bit more Flash NAND the hardware is 5 years (Soc IPQ 8065) even though the PCB's are new, so it should all be pretty stable by now as far as drivers etc.

    Using DMZ means that it will have all its router ports open and respond to internet queries and pings though, that must weaken security surely, because the router you are using as a modem is now open to attack and this is the primary connection to your ISP. I see your point about the firewall but its still in my view reduced the level of security of your network. A straight modem or fully bridged router is always going to be safer.

    Lol oh well that’s a first report for me haha, don’t worry.
     I would imagine DumaOS 3.0 may well fix this but if you wish under the COD forum you will see Caddy 2.0 which can delete offline devices but you could trying reinstalling .56 firmware over the top and resetting afterwards to see if that helps.

    Or get a modem, its so much simpler and more secure. With DMZ you identify your network areas. Internal: critical systems; DMZ: systems you can afford to be "exposed", systems you want to host services to the outside world, e.g. your SSH hosts; External: the rest of the world, you set up these separate areas on your network. Your firewalls/routers are then configured to allow direct connections from the outside world only to the DMZ. Correspondingly, your internal systems should be able to connect only to the DMZ and access the outside world via HTTPS, application proxies, mail relays etc. there. Your firewall rules should reflect these decisions by blocking the corresponding traffic directions/IPs/ports: e.g. inward allow only ports for services operating in the DMZ etc. Ideally you should configure any services exchanging information between network areas (internal, DMZ, external) to be initiated from the most secure network segment to the less secure areas, e.g. If you need to transfer files to "inside" hosts have the inside systems initiate the transfer (have the client role, rather than the server role).
     Basically with your network, a zone (demilitarized zone) may be a physical or logical sub-network that separates an inside native space network (LAN) from different untrusted networks, sometimes the net. External-facing servers, resources and services are placed within the zone so that they are accessible from the net however the remainder of the interior computer network remains unreached. This provides an extra layer of security to the computer network because it restricts the power of hackers to directly access internal servers and information via the net.
