Ad Blocker For xr500


Ad Blocker For xr500

I just recently picked up an xr500, and i currently love it. Everything works great, and as intended. I haven't gotten too complicated, but i'm not sure i need to just yet.


Out of curiosity, i've seen posts regarding the adblocker that will be coming sometime in the future as a feature for the xr500, is there any updates on when that might become available? The last posts or information i could find dated back to october of 2021, so about 7 months ago.

While many questions about routers are generic and could be answered anywhere, some things need specialist knowledge.

You might get more help, and find earlier questions and answers specific to your device, in the appropriate section for your hardware. That's probably here:

Nighthawk Pro Gaming Routers - NETGEAR Communities

Gaming routers have their own DumaOS operating system that is nothing like the one on Netgear's standard routers.

I will ask the Netgear moderator to move your message.

In the meantime you could visit the support pages:

Support | NETGEAR

Feed in your model number and check the documentation for your hardware. Look at the label on the device for the model number.

You may have done this already. I can't tell from your message.

I mention it because Netgear stopped supplying printed manuals and CD versions some years ago and people sometimes miss the downloads.

I believe it'll be included in the next firmware update for the XR500, unfortunately I don't have a specific ETA for when that will be but we are currently working on it with NETGEAR.
