  1. Im damn good with home networking stuff (work for apple) but once things hit enterprise level I admit I know absolutely nothing LOL Thanks for pointing me that way Johnny, will check it out
  2. Hmm, we have about 50 devices in the house. (Nothing special setup in the router except DMZ, so no VPNs etc etc) Some of the ones that it's done this with (But only the very first time ever connecting to the router where a reboot fixed it) - iPhone XS Max - 3 of the desktop macs 2012 models (The new 2017 5k one connected right away) - iPhone 8 Plus - iPhone SE - LG 65' 4k oled - PS Vita - Switch - (Both ps4s connected flawlessly the first try) - Desktop PC that was originally using an asus EAN66 via a lan cable for WiFI . (Asus wouldve had its own mac address seperate from PC but it passed some of the PC info into the router still, like the static IP I setup directly within windows) Occurred a 2nd time on this PC when switching to the Built in motherboard wireless Mumimo 802.11. I think it threw the router off because the PC name and mac address was the same but it was a different wifi mac address. (The name of the PC in the router was being bounced around as other device names each reboot randomly, of devices I setup awhile ago, very weird) Had to factory restore for that one to clear up.
  3. I've had this happen as well when a "new" device connects to the nighthawk. It's not 100% of the time, maybe 25% of the time. Used to be 100% when a new device connected but firmware "helped", it just didn't make it 100% fixed. A simple router reboot fixes it. Not looking for a fix since its easily fixed on a reboot, just thought I'd toss in that I've gotten it also, from the firmware that it came with all the way into 3 firmware updates later it persists. No big deal for me though.
  4. I'm one of the super lucky ones who is getting 10 GB service in the area (Yes 10, not 1gb) They offer 10gb both going up and down for only 299 a month (1gb is only 79$, BYE CHARTER lol) https://www.brightridge.com/home-service/broadband-products/high-speed-internet/fiber-optic/ However, can a Nighthawk Pro xr500 support this? Having issues finding this info, not surprised honestly lol By support it, I mean the full speed assuming other in home devices can support it too, obviously it would work in "general". If not, will it at least "actually" make the router "take off" (Joking, but also, kinda not LOL)
