The only problems I've noticed so far;

 

The router apps seem a bit more sluggish to load.

The Network Monitoring app hangs about 3-4 seconds after loading. It can no longer be monitored in real-time.

These both seem like memory resource issues.

What browser are you using? Does this happen in FF or Opera?

Also did you do a factory reset after the upgrade?

I also have the same problem. The entire UI is slow. Some panels will not load at all, such as the large panel on the lower left on the dashboard tab.

Same question and also clear the browser cache/cookies before hand and see if that improves it.

I am using Microsoft Edge (convienent) but I did clear the cache last night before posting...however I'm watching the Network Snapshot and Network Overview pinned on my Dashboard and they seem to be running fine now so IDK. I didn't do a factory reset but if this issue persists I will and I'll keep you posted! Thanks for your response!

Given you are using Edge I suggest you try Firefox or Chrome if you continue to have problems. Edge is compatible but it you run into weird issues like this it's wise going to another browser to see if that resolves the problem

This firmware does make the GUI much slower to open no matter what browser you use when you compare it to the previous version. I did all the factory resets. You can simply go back to the previous and immediately see a considerable difference on how much faster it opens.

Good to know. I suggest downgrading back down to .8 if you're having slow loading issues.

Others reported that doing a factory reset and setup from scratch or clearing ALL browser caches and reopening the browser helps this.

Before I upgrade I always reset to factory. My browsers cache are cleaned each night. Its some what faster with Opera with this latest version, but still faster even with Edge using V1.0.1.8.

In my other reply, when I said I did and it goes much faster I'm talking about the old version which I've down graded to. I know that means I'm probably losing some security fixes so hopefully they will get the slower GUI issue fixed soon so I can benefit from the security updates.

Re: New - XR700 v1.0.1.10 Firmware Available

You dont need to reset before you ipdate, just after. Restting before makes no difference, but a reset after and manually entering settings (not from a backup) is the best way of going about this. Saying that it may be a NTGR firmware issue. The last update for the XR500 3 months ago now caused a greater load on the routers CPU when doing nothing much of anything. Also bear in mind the CPU's in all XR300/450/500/700 are powerful but are three years out of date, its not a bang up to date 64 bit Soc you are dealing with.

Hopefully NG can do some performance tuning on the web page for browsers on next update. 

 

If your concerned about security and updates, you can load the v10 FW. Use the best browser for it until next FW update. 

 

Good Luck.

Re: New - XR700 v1.0.1.10 Firmware Available

Yes, I can confirm as well; the GUI is slower to load.....BUT ITS STABLE!!! I factory reset and have been monitoring it while gaming the last few days on Chrome, Firefox and Edge with no noticeable differences.

 

If they can keep the router stable AND speed up the GUI, in particular the Network Monitor apps (Network Overview & Network Snapshot) and the Geo Filter apps (Geo-Filter Map and Auto Ping.  The GFM doesn't seem to work in real-time so much with Auto-Ping disabled as well btw.

 

Other than that - everything else seems to work great!

That's great to hear, the team are aware of the slow UI so they're taking a look.

Unfortunately I can't speculate on when a firmware will be released but I'm sure they're hard at work. Issues like this can be quite tricky to pin down and so require extra resources/time to resolve.

Well if that the case the need to hire somebody that know how to fix this issue because almost 2 months really?

Takes time and money to do FW updates. MFrs just don't make updates willy nilly. Can take up to 6-9months to release something depending upon current and new issues that have to be fixes, developed and tested before releasing.

Good Luck with that. No router mfr is perfect. They all have there own issues. Yet they keep marketing new ones.
