Firmware to fix download speeds cut in half?

Can I get a firmware to try aside from the AZ 1009 beta???? I have tried everything to figure this out but my download speed is cut in half. Upload is not affected.

If we can figure out what's causing it we can fix it. Its either to with PPPoE, VLAN or IPv6. Those are the only scenarios we've seen the issue with.

Isp was here on Sunday. Everything on there end is fine. PPOE and VLAN are disabled. Netgear asked me to change  the MTU which did not help at all.

All week long netgear XR500 has failed to detect bandwidth. Meanwhile the modem is fine.

I feel like you’re having the exact issue as me.

I changed my modem to a totally different brand and that seemed to fix the halved download speed issue. Unfortunately, now I’m experiencing a different bug.

 

Are you within return policy at the retailer where you got your router? I highly recommend returning it. Maybe rebuy it 6 months later when the firmware is actually working right. If you decide to keep it then prepare to beta test it with the rest of us fools.

Crunk the speed test results is fixed in a later firmware but if you manually enter your speeds in Anti-Bufferbloat does it work okay?
