    possible, or you could be pinging a better server on speedtest.net. I can tell you that if you reboot your router/modem or modem a few times in short intervals you can be placed on what is called interleaving which reduces your speeds as the dslam thinks you have a fault on your line so it sacrifices speed for stability and after a period of stability (usually 9-11 days) it will go back to what is called fastpath which will be your maximum attainable speeds.

    I think I've solved the issue, under the WAN settings I changed the MTU value from 1492 to 1430. Webpages seem to be loading a lot quicker

    Newfie reacted to quadrophenic in Issue : XR500 & Philips Hue bridge   
    I have a hue hub and I often have problems with it after I have rebooted my XR500. The only thing I have found to restore the connection is to unplug the hue hub for a minute and let it reconnect. Just keep an eye on the lights on the hub. It seems to have some issues with DHCP if it is left on through a router reboot.

    Oh yeah I really want to play that! I used to have a PSVR but I sold it to get a Switch. Since next year there will supposedly (according to rumours) be new consoles, maybe PSVR will become massively cheaper at some point soon?

    I love fishing too, add some shooting into the mix with some ferreting. I’ve a small boat that allows me to have some great times on the Local part of the Thames and I’m an owner of a fishery which is rented out to a local club so other can enjoy a day out.
    I also have an interest in linen, I just love linen bedding and have linen from across the globe yet non beat the Irish linen which is just heaven.

    Games! But seriously, I love working in my garage. Tinkering, welding, sawing, cutting. By the way recently bought a set of routers https://drilling-it.com/best-router-bits-sets-reviews/. I want to make beautiful details. I want to try myself in woodworking. Also an interesting activity.

    No problem. The reason i'm a bit vague on some of this is because on the XR series, much of this stuff is handled by Netgear.

    You know I was pretty sure that you couldn't control devices behind an extender. It might be something unique about the extender you're using. I mean, it IS a Netgear extender, maybe there's a compatibility there.

    I suppose it makes sense though, because otherwise it would be showing all traffic twice.

    Yes, I’m looking at DumaOS. if I for example pull up the live camera then the network monitor shows the VMB4000 is active and you can see the download and upload yet the extender shows nothing. It’s as if you can now control devices attached to an extender where as I’m sure I could not do that before.

    So you can't see much activity on the extender's web interface? Or are you talking about DumaOS?

    I’m just wondering if it’s possible to have some type of monitoring system that can alert you in some form and can be custom set for devices that go off-line or online.
     The reason why am asking is that I have one of Netgears security camera set ups the Arlo and it seems to go off-line and then pops back on again. When this occurs it creates errors on the Arlo system, for example the Siren will fail to sound until a reboot of the arlo base station and movement detection stops.
    Is it possible to have some type of notification or monitoring system which can be adjusted for individual appliances connected to the Router? 
     Would be a very handy feature.

    I’ve discovered something that I’ve not noticed before.
    I'm running 2 extenders which are the ex8000 extenders and on one of these I have connected an Arlo base station which is the Netgear’s security camera system. 
    I’ve noticed under network monitor the base station (VMB4000) is active yet the extender is showing very little activity. I’m fairly sure before anything connected via an extender could not be controlled ie controlling QoS for example.
