    Make sure with windows 10 that in file explorer you click on network and change the network to private.
    If you don't do this, Windows won't find any devices on your network at all as windows firewall blocks any workgroup browsing as it assumes all newly connected networks are public until told otherwise.

    To do that, any router that supports the use of openvpn. So, pretty much any asus router that is capble of running Asus Merlin comes to mind as being the easiest way.

    Well, upnp specifically won't respond to manual port forward requests from a qnap. Synology, any version of plex or my make shift Linux web server , previous versions would open ports via upnp fine, they just do not open/ fail the requests on this firmware so is a bigger issue than just the gui.
     
    But for gaming, a moderate Nat should suffice for most games

    Well, I could do. But as I specify on the qnap which ports to be available, I shouldn't have to.
     
    Any other devices on my home network I don't care about security wise so upnp is a decent fit for me.
    That and I can't be bothered to port forward 10 different consoles or when relatives pop around. Doing IT for a living. I don't take my work home with me

    I'd agree with BIG_DOG on this.
     
    In general for small releases you can get away without a factory reset. However, all it takes is for netgear/linksys/asus or any other brand of router to update the WiFi driver or Ethernet driver and introduce a new range of default parameters that into the config that can't be applied because of the old settings, so unfortunately most of the time: Any issues after an upgrade, Reset and try again..

    It is the tried and trusted sure fire method of a completely flashed firmware, it is the tried and trusted correct method as a general reboot does not always work which is what I am trying to get across.

    Thanks, I just did a factory reset in the end.
     
    With it being Geo-Filter that was the only thing that had issues, the 2 devices listed in Geo-Filter were my PS4's  and they were both still on and connected. Strange. Still sorted now, performance has been a lot better for me so far, looks like a decent firmware

    I wouldn't use Asus for dual wan, it's not very reliable.
    I'd go with a synology rt2600 ac if you're after an all in one consumer friendly device that does dual wan well.

    Well in good news, netgear came to same conclusion as me and are replacing it as it seems the flash chip is buggered on it. Hopefully xr500 number 2 will be stable to go along with the awesome pings it was getting

    Only issue with netgear support is that frankly it's the worst support of any router company and not once, be it as an enterprise customer, or consumer have I ever received any level of support beyond, can you do a factory reset and that's a known issue, use xyz router instead.

    Both, I can still connect to the router fine and see in settings that pppoe is disconnected. Clicking the connect button will not force it to re-attempt a connection.
    During this time, I can plug directly into my draytek vigor 130 and see it still has dsl sync and my laptop is able to connect via pppoe fine.
     
    Nothing is mentioned in the logs about a disconnect when it has happened, though IF it happens again, I'll grab a copy of them and start a separate thread.

    I've found that after 2 days my pppoe drops on the xr500 and requires a reboot for the router to work again. the draytek vigor 130 vdsl modem maintains its connection fine during this. Has happened twice so far.
     
    Attempts to force it to connect via the UI don't resolve it either, so am blaming it on being a new product with a few teething issues thus far. By far the best router OS I've had the pleasure of using for home use btw.
