Download Link: https://www.netgear.com/support/product/XR700.aspx#download

To update your router’s firmware, follow the instructions in your router’s user manual. To view your router’s user manual, visit https://www.netgear.com/support/product/XR700.aspx#docs.

 

Manually update FW on the router if this isn't seen on the routers web page:

NOTE: Use a wired PC and web browser to update router FW. If continued problems are seen after a FW update, it's recommended to try a factory reset and setup from scratch with out loading any saved configurations from backup files.

NOTE: Recommend setting the default DHCP IP address pool range to the following after applying and a factory reset: 192.168.#.100 to 192.168.#.200.

 

Cooling: Its recommended to install a USB laptop cooler under the router for 24/4 cooling. Helps keep the router cool and helps avoid heat damage to the electronics.

Re: New - XR700 Firmware Version 1.0.1.50 Released

Test results from a slightly used XR700 from fleabay:

Connected to a CAX80 in modem mode.

I like having come controls over the internal FAN:

These settings keep the fan ON so the router is cooler.

 

Sliders are at 80% since I'm the only one using the XR700 currently. Not under any stress. 

Just gaming with a xbox series X connected to the 5Ghz radio. 

 

One issue I found, RAXE500 won't connect to the XR700 5Ghz radio in wireless bridge mode. Connects fine on the 2.4Ghz radio. Possible XR700 wifi driver outdated and not compatible between the two. I'll check more into this.

 

Actually found a 60Ghz WiFi USB adatper thats on the way. Will see how this goes though 60Ghz never took off.
