Performing an action on them was the 1st thing I did, you know, since the router said they no longer existed.. They do exist, and function. outlet.PNG

They don’t know what they are talking about it’s not in code and it’s to simple for them to understand. Why do you think it takes a year for them or even Netgear for final approval of whatever the F they are doing. Everyone stop buying this product. They will push you to the R2 don’t do it it’s the same problems read the forums. Pandemic or not everyone is working from home now and this crap should be fixed already. FIX THIS ALREADY!

Qos is now showing device not found. This is a fresh install of .120 yes it’s been factory reset. I run through all the prompts. We found internet lets check speeds let’s check firmware it’s up to date running .120. Keep getting the tutorial of how this works or skip. I skip and now I get device not found for qos. Cleared cash and still same problem.

@DIGIMANCER Out of interest, what devices do you have connected to the smart outlets? Are they lights or do they power some other appliances?

 

@Knightkast Sorry to hear this, we have seen a user have this problem in the past and they reported that it was fixed by downgrading to the previous full firmware (non beta), factory resetting, then upgrading back to latest beta firwmare and factory resetting again.

@Netduma-Fraser Yes I reset the router 3 times infact and everytime it's the same.

I have 3 SKY Q box's connected which if you look in the devices panel are constantly flickering between being online and offline.

When you enter your security questions when setting up your router the passwords shows like an encrypted version before going on to the rest of the setup.

In the port triggering menu when setting up a device name you click apply and &↔ will appear where the device name should be.

@wub901 disable Private Addresses on the iOS device for the network and see if that makes it more stable. Are you using Smart Connect for WiFi? Yes we're working on a new version currently

@wub901 Have you changed any settings at all between versions? There shouldn't be any changes affecting that

@wub901 These are jokes, I have long stopped treating netgear seriously, because how long you have to wait for a new version of the software is a drama, and the best thing is that after a year of waiting, it will not work properly anyway,

@Netduma-Liam Lights for simulating activity while away, and computers to be able to perform hard restarts remotely.

I remember Ubiquity being the only actual good hardware mfg. These Nighthawk devices look cool tho, and once you slap some RGB on them, they perform better.

Unable to send or receive pictures with an iPhone 12 when running v2.3.2.120 and QoS enabled.  Downgraded to v2.3.2.114 and the issue goes away.

@dmacomber3 are you running the latest iOS version or a beta version? What application are you trying to send/receive pictures over?

Re: New Firmware v2.3.2.120 (XR500)

I just wanted to give an update to my last post from a month ago about stability of the router. Disabling the QoS did seem to resolve the issue as I've been going for 1 month without any issues.

Okay, I have QoS Disabled and Congestion Control set to Never as well. I'll let you know if it happens again.
