    It's a type of DDoS attack, a lone entry shouldn't be anything to worry about. You wouldn't be able to regain connection right away depending on the severity and there would be more lines - it works by overwhelming the router with traffic and doesn't look like that happened here. The DHCP lease changed at the exact same moment so it could have been that instead, giving the R2 and devices static/reserved IPs may help.

    So guys, any update on when we might see a firmware update that could possibly fix the multitude of issues it seems many are having? I actually feel lucky considering my only problem was internet connection dropping because of wi-fi connections and I was able to solve it by adding a separate cheaper wifi6 router in access point mode and completely turning the wireless radios on the R2 off. And I was an early adopter of the R2.
    Some of the issues people are having now are so much worse that they might feel they have been sold a lemon. I know there is only so much you guys can do to fix some of the issues for those folks with the major issues and I know you guys work hard trying to resolve the problems. But even at some point you yourselves have to question the quality control of these devices. I really hope you guys can get the kinks worked out.

    I totally get your point and it has been awhile since an update has been available. It's hard to look at it objectively as a whole when its a support forum and all you see are people having issues but the forum community represent a small portion of R2 owners so issues aren't as prevalent as they may seem - I forget that too sometimes! We're working diligently on firmware and have been working closely with users experiencing certain issues to see what we can do to get them up and running. It won't be much longer!

    Games require very little, 1Mbps at most and that's if you're hosting which nowadays isn't common. Games typically use less than 500Kbps so if you're trying to throttle then you'd need to reduce more but just normally that's plenty, there is no recommended set speed. It'll take what it needs and that's it, giving it more does nothing essentially

    From what I understand there's a lot of factors that come into play here, such as if your neighbours are on similar lines to you etc, but I'd definitely recommend bringing it up with your ISP. If for nothing other than to get a better deal!

    Don’t get me wrong it’s stable but it’s very messy with 2 UIs that you have to swap about to get to settings and downgrading is not as easy as others. It’s QoS is not a touch on Duma, it’s using fq CoDel but the latest firmware has seen issues with it and there’s an annoying bug if you mess with WiFi the upload under QoS fails to work until you reboot the router. 
    but the best bit is it’s bandwidth allocation QoS that’s there if you don’t want to use smart Queues [fq CoDel) and that only works on WiFi connected devices so pointless to a degree.
    the Pro version has issue with PPPoE and it can’t handle a gig and there’s some very upset people on their forum and I can’t set mine up with my PPPoE connection, it all has to be done manually which takes a wired connection. Memory leaks, high CPU the list is endless but some get on ok but it’s a flip a coin router and hope for the best. They knock out Betas all the time but the proof is in the pudding. Constant updates don’t guarantee quality sadly.

    However i did learn a little so all is not lost lol.

    I think the way you have it now is the best - if you turned blocked the XR then the devices connected to it would also lose connection

    If you turn off NAT on the NG router it will probably just become pass through again, so you are in the same situation as having it in AP mode.
     
    If you set it in router mode you need to keep DHCP active as you need something to give the devices behind the NG a IP adress. Also you might want to change the subnet.
     
    So for Example:
    R2 = 192.168.77.1 for IP
    NG = 192.168.1.1 for IP
     
    Normally most routers have 192.168.1.1 for default and they would bite eachother, but since R2 has 192.168.77.1 it should be ok.

    The way you have it connected now, as AP, creates a bridge to the switch ports as well, so it becomes pass through.
     
    If you put it back in router mode, your R2 should see it as 1 device. But you will have double NAT on the devices behind the R2. You can possibly solve this by putting it in DMZ on the R2 if it has this option.
     
    It does create some hassles, like the devices behind the Netgear device can talk to devices on your network, but you won't be able to have your R2 network able to talk to devices behind the Netgear router due to it's firewall beeing active.

    It’s a weird one for sure, I’ve not seen it on any other posts and it’s as if there’s an issue controlling it’s traffic which made me wonder at a guess if it’s DPI but only a guess. 
    Normally if I find a router suddenly shows a problem I reset, if it’s still there I reinstall the firmware and then reset, if it’s still there then it’s a shout out for help.

    I’m seeing both sides. I work for quite a few elderly customers and one or two are worried as they don’t have internet and don’t understand modern tech including mobile phones. 
    Yes it’s great and a move in the right direction and I hope the companies when they move over are able to help those who don’t understand tech as we do.
