  3. My first post on the forums as a new member, let's see how it goes and hopefully can assist any other Aussies with the same issues. Sorry for a long post in advance but I wanted to be as comprehensive as possible. I live in Australia and recently swapped ISP to Internode with a FTTP connection (fibre to the premis which comes with an NBN modem which you can't access or edit so it plugs directly into my router from my house Ethernet port). This requires me to use PPPOE and I have to set Vlan tag ID = 2 | Priority 0. After swapping to the new ISP I found out my old Linksys WRT 1900 ACS (V1) doesn't allow you to set VLan 2 as VLan 1/2 are system reserved so I bought the Netgear Nighthawk XR500 to solve my issues. After I swapped speeds are great, connection works but there are a number of known issues with the existing firmware which pertains to PPPOE connections using Vlan, some have also reported issues with IPV6 (I don't use and have disabled) Consolidated issues: 1. PPPOE with VLan = QOS doesn't work with upload speed. It works and limits download and I read on the forums somewhere that it's because the upload isn't being Vlan tagged or something along those lines. Interestingly if I flash my router to the very first firmware addition the QOS seems to work but the UPNP is still a no go. 2. Due to the above issue (presuming) even with UPNP enabled my UPNP tables always remain blank. This in turn also means that my port triggering rules I have set up don't get detected or applied. The simple solution to this would be to turn off UPNP and manually set up port forwarding rules but that also presents more vulnerability and it would mean I miss out on the cool features of this new router and my QOS still won't work. Potential solutions... 1. I know that Vlan tagging has been a known issue since the router released and a fix has been in the works for quite some time. I don't know if the new upcoming firmware addresses this issue but if anybody with access to the beta/ alpha can check or if it's possible for me to be added to testing program to provide feedback if it fixes the issue that would be amazing as it would eliminate the need for the following fixes. 2. After sifting and reading through multiple forums some users have found success by setting up a router in front of the XR500 to handle PPPOE and the Vlan tagging. I am unsure on how to do this as my network knowledge is limited. In preparation to undergo this I have flashed my old Linksys WRT 1900 ACS with OpenWRT and connected it via PPPOE & VLan but I don't know the next steps to connect it to my XR500 and have my XR500 as my main router to control everything. (If anybody can assist me with learning how to do this I would really appreciate it) I have read about PPPOE Passthrough, Bridged Mode, using DMZ to connect to routers but I don't know the most appropriate solution or how they all differ. 3. Flash my XR500 with OpenWRT and say goodbye to my beloved DumaOS and set up QOS manually (I really don't want to do this) 4. Some people have spoken about using a switch to do the PPPOE/ Vlan tagging but I assume I can use my OpenWRT to achieve this same result without buying hardware but might be a suitable fix for anybody else who has this problem and an available switch (Idk what a switch actually is, is it just a modem?) 5. ? Here are links I found to posts within this forum for relatable issues and for quick reference: 1. Bert talks about DMZ, PPPOE Passthrough, Bridge mode from 2018. Not sure on all the terminology but it's relating to the same issue I am. 2. Netduma Jack suggests to this individual to setup PPPOE on a seperate modem and it supposedly worked (again I don't know the steps to do this on OpenWRT) https://community.netgear.com/t5/Nighthawk-Pro-Gaming-Routers/QoS-not-working-with-PPPoE-connection/td-p/1591720 3. 4. Old issue regarding Vlan & QOS / UPNP 5. A couple NetDuma individuals present a couple solutions but not details on how to actually go about it. Probably one of the most relevant links and it's more recent. If anybody could help me with this issue i would be greatly appreciative. At the moment I think my best option is to wait for new Firmware to be released and in the interim use my Linksys WRT 1900 acs flashed with OpenWRT to serve as my connection to PPPOE + VLan tagging and have that connected to my XR500 which can handle everything I just don't know how to do this.

  7. I've noticed alot recently that my prioritised upload packets barely increase compared to my download packets, can anyone offer any advice? I've tried it with various rules, e.g games console, duma classified games, ABB on and off etc but im not managing to improve it. Did a full restart too, both at the plug and through the router UI. As of now my router has been on for 4-5 hours, but I've got high priority upload packets VS 60060 high priority download packets? Would appreciate any help thanks everyone.

  13. Hey guys, I have seen that there is an option 61 setting somewhere in the xr500 router when you change does internet require a login to no, however this option doesn't show in my xr300. What I'm looking to do is remove my sky q hub, replace with an openreach modem and run the xr300 from that. I'm currently running the xr300 through the sky hub, doesn't seem to be any major issues but I'd rather just get rid of it. Will the modem take care of option61/MER or will the router also require this to be an option? Thanks in advance guys.
